This small hill overlooks Bangor in Erris. It is named Garrafull on Bald's map of Mayo, but this variant does not seem to be confirmed by other sources.   Carrafull is the 1239th highest place in Ireland.

From the cross roads in Bangor (861231 starA), walk north up a minor road which shortly turns left, at the next corner 859234 starB go right through a gate onto a rough track. This runs towards a ruined house, but soon after going through the gate there is a track junction, turn right here and follow this track up hill, pass a wrecked car and continue onto the telecommunication aerials at Srahanarry.

From here walk up hill (beside then passed some cables on the ground) to the first summit and then out to the actual summit of Carrafull. Another great North Mayo view point, despite its modest height. Return is by way of your ascent.

The track & Masts mentioned above are not shown on the older OS series, the track that is shown is overgrown and best avoided. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/983/comment/3719/

Enjoyable walk with easy access.

From the center of Bangor I walked east along the N59 for about a kilometre and then turned left up a narrow country road. I followed this narrow road up hill for approximately 500 meters where I came across a gate on my left : F874236 starC.
I accessed Carrafull by climbing this gate, and made my way towards both tops. The good thing about going this way is that you have only one or two wire fences in your way, and they are low and easy to step over.
Fabulous views on top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/983/comment/23491/
