Summary for Knockacummer (Cnoc an Chomair): Rough going but not far
Summary created by jackill 2010-08-30 14:51:51
Park at A (R25201 13125) , be careful though, there is only room for one car . Cross the fence onto the forest road , turn right and ignoring the roads climb the bank facing you and go straight up the hill , along the forest edge to the summit crossing two wire fences as you go. This is a wet forest ride that gets rougher as you approach the leaning trig pillar.

As I drove up the road to my start point at A (R25201 13125) it degenerated into a goat track.
Passing abandoned farm machines and half eaten hay bales I found myself turning the car at a open gap(only just!) and, using the forest tracks and aerial photos, was at the summit pillar in 15 minutes.Views are limited but you can see the Paps and Mullaghareirk.As of 2010 there is no sign of the windfarm that was granted planning permission a few years ago.

Another Mullaghareirk windfarm
by eamonoc 24 Aug 2015
Knockacummer is now adorned with many wind turbines, I was able to drive to B (R25180 14646) on a very well made track to windfarm entrance, signs on gate advising no entry without ringing a certain number, this being a Saturday and nobody about there was no problem with access, once through entrance top of Knockacummer is clearly obvious approx 1.5km to the sth, I headed towards Tubine number 5 on a wide windfarm track, and then headed directly uphill behind this along a drainage channel and onto another track to turbine number 10 and a short uphill walk directly from here led to the leaning trig of Knockacummer.

Wind turbine-encased, forgettable hill
by Colin Murphy 1 Jun 2022
There have been some alterations to the landscape/tracks since jackal's 2010 comment. We parked at roughly C (R25353 12861) , where there was just room for a single car beside a wired off entrance to a field (it was opposite a rough farm track sloping up to the SE). We then continued NW up the main track, encountering a large tree trunk across the track (probably to stop vehicular access). We stepped over this and continued up the track to a crossroads of sorts at A (R25167 13148) , turning right up the wind farm track as far as D (R25447 13234) , where the trees on the left end. It is difficult to see, but access is possible to the NE up the side of the trees along a narrow and very rough trail of sorts, ending in an uneven, heathery area, the highest point topped by a slanting trig pillar. The entire hill is surrounded by wind turbines. About 30/40 minutes up and down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/788/comment/23533/

Picture: The trig point on the summit with an obvious tilt
john_desmond on Knockacummer
by john_desmond 17 Jul 2008
Knockacummer can be aproached easily from the North. From the R576, turn off at approx E (R246 152) and drive South for about 600 metres on a tarmac road until it ends in a small junction. There is limited parking available here. Take the left hand fork and follow the obvious forest track. About 100 metres West of the the sharp bend at F (R256 139) , you can take a short cut by going left and South for about 400 metres through the forest. Once you break back out onto the forest track, go right and look for the turn off left into the open area by the summit. The fact that there is a Trig point there and the contour lines drop off nicely on the OS map might suggest that there might be some views from here. Alas, like it's neighbour Mullaghareirk to the North, the tall trees more or less block all of the views except for the windfarm on Taurbeg to the South West. The summit is marked by a trig point which has seen better days as it has now titled over at an angle as the soft ground underneath it has begun to subside. Overall, another one of those 400 metre hills that is more or less covered in forestry. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/788/comment/3229/

Farming for wind
by thomas_g 9 Aug 2013
I visited today and had a chat with a nice diggerman from Tipp, the foundations are there for a turbine, which means you cross a nice forest road on the way up, which I suspect is probably the best way to ascend, don't be tempted to walk to the end of the road where the turbine is going and cut through the young trees, it's fairly impassable after 200m.
The forest ride mentioned is fairly impassible now, but I had good success going through the mature trees, there is even an animal path in places. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/788/comment/15061/
