Great View of Blaskets and Skelligs from the most Western Hill in Europe...

Very good to the top. On the other hand after ... more way, impossible to progress sometimes in the vegetation, a sacred memory for a group of 9 people.

Never saw the tiny yellow hiker sign but kept walking on the road till I hiked down a little cliff.

The views are outstanding but there were no marks at the top of the mount . Couldn’t find the path and had to go across country. Quite an adventure with four kids

A reasonably sized car park below, but can become busy as this is a popular small hike. A short ascent, steep at first, to the summit, and then down to the tip where the Star Wars scene was filmed. Then in a loop via the northern side back to the car park. Fine views of the Blasket Islands and Atlantic seascape.

A lovely well marked trail with stunning views. Very doable even if you are not very fit. Good parking with restaurant, toilet etc.

Fab walk - scenic and wild!

We ended up only having time to hike out to the point and back from the side of the road. It was breathtaking.

Beautiful easy walk with breathtaking views!

Park at the famine house or any other small attraction. Walk down Slea drive (2-3 miles) until you get past the sheer rock face pass, then follow tiny yellow hiker sign up into the pasture. You’ll go over a step ladder and continue along the rock wall. There’s another ladder after the steep climb with a pile of stacked rocks overlooking the bay. There are occasional signs but not very clear, at the end you’ll go through a few residential homes and get back onto Slea drive/return to car. Great views once you get up into the pastures. Takes about 3:45 and about 7 miles if you stop at any beehive, ancient sites.

Short hike up a hill, need to go over a rock wall that has foothold steps built into it. Steep uphill comes around to a nice view with grass covered rocks. Do a wide loop, it was very windy when we did the hike in October.

Up hill climb but oh so worth it! Spectacular views and sheep galore

Easy trail with spectacular views! Lots of sheep poo too

Amazing views. Great for kids. The last 1/8 mile is on a busy road though.

Was a very pleasant walk. Nothing hard, just a stroll. Fantastic views of the coastline.

Beautiful views and very close to wildlife. We didn’t see anyone else along our hike, despite a lot of tourists being in the area.

Very scenic. Good hike for novice hikers. Remember that scene in Half Blood Prince where Dumbledore takes Harry to that cave to find a horcrux? Copy paste.

Beautiful views of the Irish coast. Fairly well marked trail posts, but the trail is difficult to identify occasionally between posts (given the short distance of the hike, not really an issue). Recommend starting the trail just before the entrance to the parking lot. Bring a light coat - it’s windy!

Very easy loop walk, great views. There are cows in the fields and electric fences. This walk is flat for the most part good walk for all ages.
