Marvelous views!
by paddyhillsbagger  22 Apr 2012
Visiting friends near Headford, I left the wife in bed to bag this delightful little hill. Despite taking a few wrong turns, I parked the car opposite a house at M049 596 starA after asking the owners who were in the process of painting the property white. Setting up the slope in a NW direction with the sound of Yellowhammers, Skylarks, Meadow Pipits and Willow Warblers in my ears I quickly came across steeper ground and a false summit to a slightly boggy and undulating summit ridge. I made my way to a fence which runs along the spine of the hill and in the absence of trig, chose the point where the ridge fence is joined by a fence from the northern slope as the summit point. Fine views are had all round taking in Loughs Mask, Corrib and Nafooey as well as the Partry Mountains, Joyce Country with the higher Maumturks just visible above the closer summits. A wonderfuly panoramic scene for a short climb! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/875/comment/6779/

Northern Side.
by sandman  7 May 2017
If you wish to follow the fence on the northern slope mentioned in the previous comment up to the summit area park at M0318660799 starB entering thru a farm road gate then taking the lower gate and by keeping the fence on your left ,but picking your route you will arrive after a nice steep accent.

Along the ridge
by bryanmccabe  16 May 2021
The routes proposed by paddyhillsbagger and sandman are short and steep. If you want a longer and more gradual ascent, you can start in the vicinity of the parking area at M 0044 5977 starC and follow the high ground, gradually curving around clockwise onto the main ridge. Alternatively park at Finny Church and incorporate a short road walk to get to this parking area. A decent effort needed to bag this binnion.

Follow the fence
by TommyV  24 Mar 2022
As mentioned by bryanmccabe I started from the Western side of the hill at the parking area. Once you get to the first spot height at 203 metres you will see a fence that you can follow for the most part all the way to the unmarked summit. There are a few sections where you will need to move away from the fence in search of less steep ground. For a hill under 400 metres it does take a bit of effort, or maybe it's just that this was my first hike in months. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/875/comment/23434/
