There are two possible approaches to Castleconor that I can see: from the Slieve Bloom Way to the north or via the forest track to the south. If coming from the north, turn off the SBW at N27973 02421 B, where a forest ride will make access to the summit a little easier, taking you within 50m of the summit. The top itself is that awful heather-grown-on-top-of-forestry-trenches business that will ensure you're always stepping into one hole or another. If the holes doesn't get you, the flies will! Since the top is ringed with trees, views are limited to Baunreaghcong and the Ridge of Capard to the north. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/796/comment/2762/
