The name of this hill is documented in various forms, such as Carrigmurrely in 1756 and Carrickmacreily in 1795. It is fairly certain that the second element is a personal name, but the forms are too diverse to specify which name. Price mentions the possibility that it is Ó Murghaile.   Carrick Mountain is the 993rd highest place in Ireland.

This is the original summit I climbed on Carrick. Barely visible peeping over the trees ahead is the real summit with the trig pillar. To reach the trig pillar summit as I did from the southern side requires good navigation. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/865/comment/3297/

csd on Carrick Mountain, 2008

I started at the same point as wicklore, and used Sheet 56 to follow the zig-zags of the forest tracks up to the track that finishes just SE of the summit. I continued on a little further than wicklore did, turning right off the main track where in plunges into the forest. I followed this (also scrambler-eroded) track until it met the outcrop wicklore speaks of, where I turned left, keeping the steeper ground on my right. It gets a little tricky towards the real summit, but otherwise straightforward nav. Excellent views from the summit, especially today, with the summit of Lugnaquilla ringed in snow. Makes a nice quiet afternoon's walk for those days when you want something short, but can't face Maulin yet again! Up and down in 2h30 is eminently possible if you don't hang around and take some short cuts off some of the zig-zags on the way down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/865/comment/3495/

So good I climbed it twice
by eamonoc  8 Nov 2013
After climbing Collon earlier on in the day I completed my local 100 with an ascent of Carrick Mountain, I started at Coillte entrance as mentioned by wicklore T246960 A (Point F). I followed the muddy path uphill, narrow at first with pleny of evidence of horse riding (hoof prints everywhere), this path zig zagged uphill and using OS sheet 56 I evetually reached the 6 way junction as mentioned by simon3. At this junction I could see the southern most rocky outcrop uphill and there was a clear path here leading up to it, from the junction I headed steeply up towards the rocky outcrop, this took about 5mins, upon reaching this point I looked up to my right and saw another rocky outcrop with a stone cairn, there was a clear path up to it. Here at the cairn I was starting to congratulate myself on completing my local 100 when I spied another higher rocky top about 100mts to the north, there was no path towards it. I made my way down into the surrounding dense forest heading in the general direction of the actual summit, eventually about 8mins later I made it to the summit trig point. Fabulous views in all directions from here. I clapped myself on the back and headed in the general direction I had come from, again heading into dense forest, imagine my surprise when about 5mins later I emerged from the forest and onto the summit of Carrick for a second time. I have to admit I had no compass with me! but after a few sweaty moments ploughing through dense forest once again I eventually made my way back to the outcrop with the stone cairn. I followed my upward route back out to the forest entrance without any difficulties. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/865/comment/15253/
