There is parking for 6-8 cars at the Ballyduff graveyard, making sure not to block the entrance or the narrow road as there is a working farmyard. Walking uphill, make your way through field onto the open hillside. There appears to be no access issues here at present.
Slievenalecka is very prominent and, although quite a small hill, the views are superb. Another descent westwards is followed by a very steep ascent of Slievanea. The ascent is easier further west. Again, the views are tremendous, especially towards the Brandon Group. Save this route for clear weather!
Descend the north ridge of Slievanea, picking up the track that links the main road with loch A'Duin and following it back to the road. A walk of 2.5km will bring you back to the graveyard. However - be warned - the road is busy and there is no footpath.
