I parked in the village of Inistioge and followed the Leinster way along the River Nore. It was quite nice and also passed an Ice House belonging to the big house. Closer to the summit I missed the right hand turn off for Mount Alto as it's quite subtle so watch for this. There is a digger at the clearing so maybe they will be clearing that turn off soon? My approach from the south was not easy as there was wind fallen trees and rhododendrens. T
