Wind farm is an eye sore. if this wasnt here it would be beautiful. May not bother others but its just not for me

Amazing views especially in good weather with a nice breeze along the ridge. Really enjoyed it.

Ahhhh, the faeries, no doubt!

Great views, good for hiking and running and biking.

An easy trail, good for trail runners. You can see most of the city on a sunny day. It's very easy to get to from the city. Timbertrove càfe is lovely for a nice coffee or lunch after your hike.

Excellent hike, lots of climbing,very difficult. make sure to have good footwear,water and food. not really child friendly....quite a dangerous climb

Great climb, moderately challenging, more difficult if the weather was poor (we had great weather). Fabulous views of Lough Tay from the top. Easy descent. Highly recommended.

Beautiful views and well manicured trail. Perfect for family outing. Amble parking after searching for it.

Great walked with a 12 and 13 year old. Took 1.45hrs

Trail is mostly on narrow roads.

Lovely walk, easy walking,lovely views.

One of the hidden gems! Bring a bite to eat and take in the views. it's like walking in Galicia.

lovely for kids

Beautifull nature, only thing that is missing are marked trails

views fab on a good day. need sticks on the way down

lovely kids as young as 3/4 can go to top

Older route, not the signposted route between Ballyhooly and Killavullen on the Blackwater Way.


Great hike with lovely views. We went clockwise and loved the views, easy enough with a couple of tough spots.
Highly recommended.

Lovely walk across the limestone shelf. Great views, and the little church and well (signposted about half way round) are just beautiful. Highly recommend visiting the Burren Perfumery nearby too. A great day!

Not very hard. The trail has stone steps. It gets very windy though. Better to go on a sunny day to enjoy the views.

Steep and slippery but only a few parts. The view is worth it.

Great hike in good weather, navigation likely to be tricky when mist descends

Great walk for the family. My kids are 8,10 and 12 and they all enjoyed it. I think clockwise is the best way to do it. Although the descent is steep. We loved it. The dog also loved it.

Very enjoyable route, nice swim before making the decent to the car park. Will be returning!!

Fabulous hike, fantastic views. Definitely worth doing. Would advise to do the loop clockwise. Some parts are quite steep and there is a bit of scrambling needed.

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

Great trail on the rocky road. After that it’s all big but luckily it wasn’t too wet due to the recent heatwave / drought

Amazing walk! Great views and can stop at the pub for lunch at the top!

A fair bit along roads. Good terrain for walking with a pram. Extremely flat, would call it a walk rather than a hike. But it's a lovely beach!
