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!

One of my favorite places on Earth, so far. I hiked the cliff walk with my daughter and it was beautiful and so peaceful. Be sure to carry a light rain jacket, since you never know when there will be a light sprinkle. I love Greystones.

We went counter clockwise around the lake and were glad we did. Amazing views of the lakes in the valley! It was dry at the bottom but walking along the ridge at the top it rained a lot. It is Ireland afterall, so we were prepared with rain gear and still had a great hike.

Very good trail for beginners, my suggestion is to do it clockwise for that way the way up to the top is less steep although a bit longer. Do it the other way around if you wish a bit of a climb! Really good viewpoints.

Very nice place and a little bit challenging to pick the right way, but definitely worth the visit!
