Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, thomas_g  20 Jun 2022
Best starting point is from V82936 63608 starA, where there is room to park for a couple of cars. Go through the gate following the Beara Way south-east. This first section seems to be through private farmland (although there is no issue with access) with a number of historic attractions such as the Uragh Stone Circle and a famine-era house, and there is box with a suggested donation of €1. Leave an extra half hour if you plan to visit these. Continue up the meandering track, which is in a bad condition in parts, the incline quite steep in places. The trail is wayarked and features stiles. When you reach V81684 62589 starB, turn SE, cross a barbed wire fence and begin to ascend the steep final part of the hill, zig zagging around large rocky outcrops and grassy terrain. you will ascend about 180m in the final 300m, so it is very steep in parts, but quite doable. The summit is a prominent, elongated outcrop. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/763/comment/5522/
