I live nearby so can go up & down Knocknarae whenever the mood takes me. I prepared for going up Half Dome in Yosemite by going up & down Knocknarae around 100 times last summer, but never once did I get bored!
It's such an easy but rewarding hike, and there's always something to surprise you when you get up there! On the right day you can hike up through the fog, emerge at the top and be above the fog line and see the whole of Sligo covered in a shroud with only Benbulben across the bay sticking out of the fog!! Maybe even be rewarded with a fogbow over Queen Maeve like I was! Only in Ireland could you do this & have it all to yourself!!
Definitely recommended! And it was so nice to share this Sligo experience with my relatives from the USA recently! They loved it!
