Picture: Knockatee, the rough NW side.
An obvious place to visit this from is the col at A (V78101 60093). There is parking for 2 or 3 cars. The ground is unfenced and the land leading to the top is rough but passable.
Knockatee is well known in the area both for its distinctive shape and as a pleasant place to visit. It is commonage and actively used by local sheep farmers.
Views from the top include the intricate coastline to the SW of Kilmakilloge Harbour over which there is the ridgeline of the Cummeegeera Circuit. Across Kenmare River much of the famous high ground of the Dunkerrons is visible such as Mullaghanattin and the MacGillycuddy Reeks.
Visit this place on a good day for a quick walk with all that is best in Kerry and Cork views.

Member Comments for Knockatee (Cnoc an Tí)

Small summit mighty views!
by three5four0 10 Aug 2010
On the minor road between Knockatee and Knockanoughanish, there is enough space to park a car off road on small track, without blocking it, at L Gowlán (V78175 60165).

Follow the track up hill and then sheep tracks, after it ends. You are aiming for the large re entrant / rock faulty, which runs left to right across the hill. Once in this grassy re entrant, ascend it (right) to its highest point. Look to your left and you will see a faint path leading up hill to the small summit area. And what a view point it is!

Picture: Memorial plaque
Author of one of Ireland's best hillwalking books remembered
by madfrankie 15 May 2017
At a mere 330m Knockatee has a lowly elevation that belies it's ruggedness and stature.
From the road that crosses the col with Knockanoughanish it's a steep but brief pull up stone-strewn slopes. The summit lacks a cairn or pile of stones, but just below the summit is a plaque set into a boulder, a memorial to Richard Mersey, author of 'The Hills of Cork & Kerry'.

Small but Perfectly Formed. Excellent Views for the Effort.
by ciarraioch 7 Aug 2020
Might be a nice one for the family on a dry day or an easy introduction to the hills for casual walkers. Climbed on a cloudy and drizzly February afternoon from the road on the saddle between Cnoc a' Ti and Cnoc an Uaignis. Had a lash at the latter as well (see separate entry) , although that was a much longer affair. Between the combings of cloud, excellent views onto Lauragh & Kilmackilogue and the Cummeengeera Horseshoe as well as across the bay down towards Caherdaniel. The poignant monument at the summit to Richard Mersey is a fitting tribute on the very first hill he climbed back in the '40s. Richard in his book 'The Hills of Cork and Kerry', captured as no other the sentiments of those of us who love this glorious corner of the world. Go ndeanfaidh Dia trocaire ar a anam uasal.

Just to complement the sentiments expressed so eloquently by others such as ciarraioch, this photo shows Knockatee on a sunny day in June, taken from the SW. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/924/comment/15015/
