In clear conditions it is possible to see as far as Crough Patrick. There is also a fine view of the many islands on Lough Ree. Has been called Aghalard.   Slieve Bawn is the 1249th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Bawn is the second highest point in county Roscommon.

The hill at the top of Lough Ree! Lovely views and loads of forest paths. Holy Cross next to phone mast and short muddy walk to trig. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/991/comment/3870/

Nice recreation area.

There are a number of points to access this hill, I went from M96291 73210 A. The hill is a windfram and forestry but it has also been cleverly made into a recreation area that has good paths, a viewing platform at the summit and is well sign posted. As I was on the way home after a stag in Carrick-On-Shannon I just took in the summit but it's possible to continue on a looped walk of the hill to see other sights such as a mass rock, church ruins and a holy cross.
