Reviewed November 9, 2012

Make sure you have packed your walking boots if you intend to walk to the summit. The views are definitely worth the climb!

“worth the climb”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

wear runners or closed in shoes not flip flops as we have seen,.a lot stones,rough areas.also can be cold at top so wear layers,gets warm on way up.bring water and a phone.in case of falls etc.
car park is free.
takes 2 hours roughly,allowing for time to take photos stop and rest as we do often.we went with a 72 year old so its not to bad of a climb.just take time.
view at top is well worth it.
take a stone from the bottom ,near car park.bring it to the top of cairn,meant to be lucky.

“Maeve's tomb”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Even if my beloved Irish Woldhound - Airedale - Lab mix had not been named for Warrior Queen Maeve, this would always be a part of the annual pilgrimage group I take to Ireland.
