Park at the forestry entrance at A (W201 553), room for 5 cars. Walk up the track turning off to the south about 400 meters before it ends onto a rough machine path through clearfell trees to the summit , a high point in the bog next to an overturned tree stump.

Member Comments for Coolsnaghtig

2020 Update.
by Cobhclimber 21 Jul 2020
Forestry Entrance now is partially blocked by a trench/pit (2020). More parking further down on the approach road. Forest has grown up and the paths to the top are very overgrown and difficult to find.
. The top as per the map is completely overgrown but the still accessible look-out would seem to be at the same height. Done on a lovely sunny day. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/959/comment/20825/

Picture: Some of the damage caused by the recent gorse fire
Burnt Mountain
by Fergalh 8 Jun 2021
Sadly this hill has not escaped the spate of gorse fires that hit Killarney and other places in May. The entire southside of the mountain has been burnt away. The grass is growing quickly on the lower slopes hiding the damage somewhat. However many burnt gorse and trees are in evidence on the upper slopes as a result it is now easier to reach the summit as described by Cobh Climber Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/959/comment/23170/
