MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Croaghmoyle (<i>An Chruach Mhaol</i>) in area North Mayo, Ireland
Picture: Drivable road to summit with masts, centre.
 
Hill for stroll with good views.
Short Summary created by simon3  9 Jun 2011
Croaghmoyle is a great place for an easy hill stroll. There is a road all the way and fine views of the Nephin Begs and Nephin from the top.
There are various places to start such as M 1003 9624 A which is beside a bridge and stream. The round trip to the top has an ascent of around 320m over 4.6km taking perhaps 90m. As of June 2011 and despite warnings that a 4X4 is required it is possible to drive a car to the top. ( This could change and would be dependent on weather.)
The top has a trig pillar. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/686/comment/5445/
