Having driven from Dublin to Killaloe, we were looking for a relaxing, undemanding walk which would, hopefully, provide good views of the surrounding countryside. Our eyes were drawn to Woodcock Hill - a relatively isolated hill, standing at 310m and accessible by road, - it looked as though it would fit the bill. We parked at R519638 A to walk the final few hundred metres to the top. The Irish Aviation Authority has a radar unit on the top which includes two rather interesting looking white dome-shaped structures. As anticipated, we enjoyed a panoramic view of the area including parts of the Shannon and Limerick City. We met a number of other walkers and formed the impression that this is an excellent spot for a relaxing weekend stroll!. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/948/comment/4226/
