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 1097th highest place in Ireland.

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'.
