Just out for a stroll and saw the path. First Irish Peak! Path was clear, easy to follow, and we were quick to reach the top. Nice views, even with the overcast skies. Plenty of sheep scattering in front of us; the deer stood still for photos. Beautiful flowers on the Mountain Ash and purple flowers on other bushes. Overall, a good wake up from driving all day.

Lovely trail and easy to follow. The path is well laid out and its not too strenous if you take your time so great for beginners. Gets pretty windy at the top though, so you do need to watch your step on the last climb up to the top. Waterproof boots are a must. Great views on the way up and even better from the top!

Fantastic walk, weather was not in our favor so we did not have the view from the top. However , very steady incline and you would not need to be an experiment climber/hiker as the path is easily followed . Well worth doing .

Great short hike in the mist, with sunshine peaking through as we summited.

Wonderful hike up with stunning views of the landscape. Bring waterproof footwear. Good challenge for kids - some fun places to find critters, sheep, skip over water and a great sense of achievement when done.

Amazing views from the top. Steady upwards drag with a bit of a “hike” at the very last part. So uncrowded it’s hard to believe.

It’s a nice easy hike that is beautiful & easy on the foot. Not a very busy route at all, which makes it even better. The views are unreal at the top!
