I loved my walk up Knocknarea. It wasn't too busy so I could happily go at my own pace and linger around. The views at the top are stunning and I would highly recommend it. I wouldn't consider it too tough but would advise decent...More

This was my first visit to Ireland, and the spiritual, historical and archaeological significance of this site was what brought me to Knocknarea. I was not disappointed and very glad to have made the trek. The weather was sunny and warm so the ascent was...More

I climbed knocknarea today and was not disappointed, it is a gorgeous climb with stunning views, and is very well laid out with steps and benches along the way! The views are breathtaking from the bottom to the top!

A steep walk over uneven paths so wear a decent pair of boots! We were lucky and got a great day so the views were great over Sligo Bay and down onto Strandhill. I would definitely recommend this walk, its steep but not too long...More
