Very scenic place located in the heart of the country. There is a good car park and then a well sign posted route to the top. Nice follies to see nearby. Popular with ramblers, bikers and dog walkers.

If you're in the North Tipperary area and enjoy hill walking then The Devil's Bit is a must do. It's not particularly difficult going which gives you plenty of time to take in the lovely scenery.
