Access notes (Jan 2018): During our reconnaisance for this walk, we chatted with a local farmer and he indicated no issue with climbing the Paps (as long as you stick to the Duhallow Way and the other trails that others have indicated here on mountainviews.ie).
Summary of our walk This was an attempted summit of the two Paps of Danú summits which was ambandoned due to a mix of low cloud, dying light and lack of motivation!!
The initial track up the ravine from our start point W1447684014 is part of a National waymarked trail called the Duhallow Way. We adventured a little bit at W1436585043 with an attempt up the mountain but despite their being tracks from other walkers visible, it was a good sluck up to the fence line. At this point we decided to double back and check out the path northwards. I believe the gate we encountered at W1431785258 is actually a better place to mount a summit.
We then made our way back to the car and headed home...
