Climb the new walkway from the Strandhill Road access point or take the old walk. You will have exercise fresh fresh air and stunning views of a magnificent panorama. The boardwalk adds a little fun to the climb for children. The view from the summit is amazing and the ancient feel of the place is awesome.

Three of us, plus my sister-in-law's dog, took a wonderful walk up this path to Queen Maeve's burial mound. It was a sunny, but very cold, day, and the walk was a great outing with some spectacular views of the coast and the countryside around. A very well-engineered path takes you safely to the top.

Great views, a place filled with history and legends. It's steeper than Benbulben though, so don't be surprised if the journey is more tiring.

Very easy hike with beautiful views. Just be careful not to slip on the muddy rocks! It should take about 30-45 mins and isn't too far from Sligo town.

My husband and I took an overnight flight from Toronto to Dublin, arriving around 5am local time. We went through customs, got our bags, rented a car, and drive to Knocknarea, arriving around 10am after stopping for breakfast. There were two other cars in the carpark near Primrose Grange when we got there. It was a beautiful sunny Sunday morning... More

If you are in Sligo and don't go for a hike here, you're missing out. I hiked up the Strandhill steps side and down the easier path to the car park. It was a beautiful day and I will not forget it. Remember to bring a rock with you from the path to the cairn at the top. The view... More

Knocknarea offers a great hike with spectacular views of the surrounding area once you reach the top and along the route. 2 options, one is an easy hike from the carpark side and the other is a moderate hike from the Strandhill side, very well developed and great the way they used timber railway sleepers which fit in very well...

It is a bit of a hike all the way up, but nothing bearable. I would recommend it to anyone really, just take your time. Lots of family's with small children too. View is amazing, definitely worth the walk. We left car to the car park, where the main walk to up starts, but I think there was possibility to... More

Easy climb which even young children can manage. Stunning views all along the route and breathtaking once you reach the top.
