There is parking for two or three cars at around SH43770 47451. Start from here over rough moorland towards the summit.
The summit area is a ridge extending from the top to the SE. The top can be reached by circling around a rocky spur on the SE ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B1953/comment/7920/
