The name probably refers to Derreen House, located to the south of this hill near Lauragh. This interpretation seems preferable to Cnoc an tSí, 'hill of the fairy-mound', given in some sources.   Knockatee is the 1091th highest place in Ireland.

Small hill with a massive view.
Short Summary created by simon3  16 Aug 2020
An obvious place to visit this from is the col at V78101 60093 A. 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. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/924/comment/5683/
