It doesn't get much easier than this
by Conor74  7 Jun 2010
Parked car at V849 719 C, just where a new house being built. Parking tricky enough, but there are a lot of houses on the road leading west from here, and a few have enough space at roadside so you can leave car without obstructing the driveway. Walked north about 150 metres, past 2 gates leading to fields, and the third gate has a very clearly defined track that leads up to a few old sheds, this is at v849 721 A. Went up this road and after just ten minutes or so could get a good view of the summit ahead. There is an old abandoned house near the end of the road, and behind that is the summit. Lovely views of the Kenmare Bay, the Iveragh Mountains, the Reeks and the Cahas - only downside is that you can see lots of houses built at the foot of the mountain overlooking Kenmare Bay, so although I met no other walkers it certainly is not remote. I guess most walkers around here head for more dramatic challenges in the dozens of peaks one can see from the top. The summit has no mark or cairn. Very accessible, no fences to cross, and only half an hour from car to summit. There is a fence leading north west to Poulacapple, so went back via that summit. Weather was very good but suspect boggy area between the two can get a bit wet, but going generally very easy although no track or path. From the top of Poulacapple turned south to meet the road below the old house referred to earlier. Nice day, all in all it took just over an hour to get from car to both summits and back to car, no obstacles, no dogs, no angry farmers. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/894/comment/5856/
