Good viewing potential and easily reached.

Broemountain is well positioned to give interesting views due to its location and because is has recently been clear-felled. You can reach it from the forest entrance at S13175 06653 A where there is a place to park a few cars.
I wasn't there on a day that showed off the view however here is a picture of the fine sandstone cairn on the top - you can see the clear felling behind it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/696/comment/4659/
