New Comment: Nature reserve in the Burren
by TommyV  25 Oct 2018
There is room for a number of cars at the at the entrance to Keelhila Nature Reserve at M33087 03304 B. Follow the waymarkers through the reserve and ascend Bouleevin from the road at M33699 03039 C heading south where a short climb will bring you to the summit. Follow the ridge north for about 2 kilometers to spot height 205. From here descend north west along a wall to the road. From the road look for a passable gap on the other side to get access to Slieve Carran, I managed to find a spot at M34523 05047 D. Ascend Slieve Carran from the east where some bushes will need to be navigated. Once at 300 meters it is easy to spot the massive cairn at the summit. When ascending it.s nice to walk along by the cliff looking down on the nature reserve. Follow the cliff in a southerly direction before descending down to Keelhila Nature Reserve taking a short detour to take in St Colmans Church and Holy Well at M32899 04244 E. From here it's a short walk back to the start point. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/927/comment/20090/
