Neat little walk up without any difficulty. Started on a road by the pub and then walked through farmland. Headed up and over Camarahill and stayed on the shoulder to the right of the peak. It was nice a chilly at the top and made me appreciate having extra layers. I was lucky and the rain was all on the peaks north of me. Nice 3 hour round trip and a good way to finish my Irish vacation.

Tough hike with the cliff climb. On a clear day it’s wonderful

Great walk but be prepared for a big difference in weather from bottom to top. Parking can be difficult at the zig zags.
