Guinness powered ascent
by three5four0  29 Aug 2011
After another great night in Hanafins Bar in Annascaul, where we had more than several Guinness, it was decided to walk out from Annascaul again with Knocknanacree the objective for the day.

We followed the Dingle way along minor roads, towards, well Dingle Town. As the road starts to traverse the North side of Knocknanacree you come to a farm (on your right) with 2 tracks running up hill on your left. Take the second track at roughly 58394 00964 C, go through the gate and walk up hill to another gate at the top of the field. Go through this and follow the track as it switch backs up the hill. Soon it will run along a fence, pick a suitable place to cross the fence (there is a couple of rocks placed so the long of leg can just step over) and gain the ridge, which a very faint path follows to the cairn. Continue on to the summit, just passed the summit is a small pen like structure (see the photo), where we stopped for lunch. Return was made by the way of ascent, as otherwise you end up in a lot of that furze which Simon mentions in his post. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/967/comment/6495/
