I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. It takes you through many different styles of Irish terrain and allows amazing views of both the vast valley's and blue ocean. There are no trail markers and no clearly defined paths at the beginning of the trail. Just line yourself up with the mountain peak and make your own way up. For the first 30 minutes or so, you're stepping around through marshes and trying not sink your boot into muck. I would definitely recommend high topped and waterproof boots if you don't have a nice set of gaiters. Don't let this messy start deter you from doing the hike. Every second is worth it. It's a short hike, but a steep incline, so be ready to take some breaks. With breathtaking views at every turn, I'm sure you'll find excuses to stop and take a look around. Cheers!

Super fun, beautiful views, red deer, and cultural sites.

Nice view and good track.
Took the Devil's ladder to go to the top and the loop back down
Ladder seems quite dangerous going down but is fun going up
The Loop may be longer than the Devil but takes the same amount of time

Should be done on sunny day. We needed 7,5h including two bigger breaks

Worth it in the end, but don't make a loop out of it. Stay on the marked (eastern) trail and make it an out-and-back. Great for pictures!

Completed on Sept. 13 2017. Wonderful hike! My sister and I have hiked in lots of locations around the world, we both agreed that this one was incredibly unique. Views of ruins, lakes, wildlife including sheep, deer and goats. Do the hike counterclockwise around lake. Makes summiting the mountain much more enjoyable!
