I've been visiting this area of Ireland for years before climbing this mountain, with the car park near the base it is an easy climb to the top and queen Meabh's grave. The views from the top are stunning, looking across Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal.

Easy mountain climb with great views at the top! Bring a picnic and relax when you get to the top. Takes about 3 hrs. if you do this. Car park at base of mountain. Take stout shoes and rain gear

Most definitely worth the climb, the views from the top are fantastic.Think it's probably harder on the way down :-)

One of the high lights of our trip was to climb this mountain ! So worth the effort it took to get to the top. The views were simply stunning. I highly recommend anyone visiting this area visit Knocknarea.

Ok if you are not a regular walker you need to be prepared a steepish climb. Probably takes about an hour for the unfit like me. Gets very steep about half way up. When you get to the top there is the cairn to climb which is a bit tricky for the less sure footed. That being said my 75 year old mother in law beat me to the top. Super views from the top so choose a clear day.
