Bolus out on the tip of the Iveragh peninsula provides great views of Scariff island and Denish island and the now world famous Skelligs. Due to time constraints we climbed this hill from the South side on a somewhat similar route mentioned by three5four0. From here its only about one kilometre to the summit. However if time is on your side, on the North side of the hill there is an official Bolus Head waymarked trail and you could take in the summit via this route which would make for a good few hours hiking.
