It can be a little tricky to find parking at a busy time so we started from a suburban street.
Reaching the summit with its trig pillar took around 20 minutes. There's a number of other tops around so we tried some of them and came back by a different route.
The Mapnik/OSM layer shows the tracks best for this area including tracks we did not use for this visit.
From the high ground there is a fine view over Ireland's Eye, an island off the coast and near to Howth. There are other views over the city and to the Dublin/ Wicklow mountains.
