A view of "Acres" from Minard Beach. This is apparently a geologically interesting spot in itself as it is a storm beach comprised of large sandstone boulders. The castle is on private land and not closely accessible but Cromwell's forces gave it some strong blows many years ago, so getting too close might be inadvisable anyway.

Local signboards suggest an out and back from Minard Beach. The river and road directly to the east of this hill at Bunaneer would appear to prevent a route onwards to Knockafeehane. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/967/comment/20024/
