Two options for parking here, at the base of the hill at W 24508 42835 A or at Carrigfadda Church at W24508 42848 B which adds an extra 2km along the road.
If you choose to start at the hill, I suggest you climb up the forest road beyond the car park to give your legs a chance to warm up, keep right on the road and you'll end up halfway up the steps: which are steep and can be slippery if wet.
You'll easily be up and down in an hour with plenty of time at the top for the views (fog today), the trig point for the summit is beyond the cross (assuming you stay right after climbing the steps). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/943/comment/6678/
