Short Summary created by simon3  18 Oct 2011
One place to start from the north end of the small wood to the west at around R9295 6138 A. As of 2011 it is possible to walk through the fairly open trees to a point near to the summit. Although the land near the top is up to 400m above sea level, it is actively farmed and it might therefore not be possible to reach the top at times. There is a relatively small telecom mast north of the top operated by Vodafone. There is no marker at the top. Up and down will take 60 mins.
Views from the top are good, including towards the Galtees, Keeper Hill and the eastern Shannons such as the Devilsbit however it is mainly a place for the summiteer. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/778/comment/5537/
 
Beware the bull
by aidand  22 Oct 2011
Knockmaroe is part of a large dairy farm. I called to the farmhouse at R 937 602 B and got permission to climb the hill. Just a 15 minute walk up a farm road. I was warned about the bull but had no problems. I would not recommend climbing without asking permission. This must be one of the highest dairy farms in Ireland and therefore is someones workplace.
