Park at TR Tunnel (V9056 6011) on the N71, theres plenty of room on the Kerry side of the tunnel.
A path around the side points the way and then stay as close as you can to the sheepwire fence crossing to the Cork side of it as you reach the summit area.

scapania on Turners Rock
by scapania 5 Apr 2010
An easy, quick climb from the layby next to the 'welcome to Co. Cork' sign just after going through the main tunnel on the N71 Caha Pass road ( TR Tunnel (V9056 6011)), just follow the rough paths and then fence up over wet, rocky typical Beara ground. There is a cairn on a rock outcrop in the summit area, but outcrop just to the east seems to be a couple of feet higher. Nice enough view from the summit, especially across the shapely summit of Barraboy towards Knockboy. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/732/comment/4590/

Not the worst spot to celebrate 100 local peaks
by thomas_g 27 Aug 2013
Came across the top of the tunnel from Baurearagh (watch for the hole that goes through to the road) and after a quick steep climb gained the top. Lovely views over Glengarriff and a bit of sun made for a very pleasant spot to spend a few minutes. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/732/comment/15160/
