We found parking for 3-4 cars at S910898, the gated entrance to Kilranelagh House. We hiked 2 km uphill on narrow roads to S910898 where we entered the field beside the wood. We followed the route taken by simon3 to the summit of Spinan's Hill. On the descent, however, we turned East at S922912, which is above rather than below the fenced-in field . By staying close to the fence, we got through the wood without much difficulty. We went through a forest clearning and picked up the wall that heads East to Spinan's Hill SE Top. Given the experience of others, we found this to be a reasonably good route through the wood. Towards the summit, we had to cross the imposing Brusselstown Ring wall, which we did without difficulty. For the descent, we took a South-East bearing towards the road at Castlequarter. Just outside the Ring wall, the descent through the large stones was relatively steep for a short distance, but soon opened into open fields. Staying by the wall at the side of the field, there were no further obstacles on the way down, which was easy hiking. We exited a gate onto the road at S935906. It was then a pleasant and largely downhill 3.2 km road walk back to our cars.
