Ok first things first this mountain climb is not easy (I've done quite a few in Ireland incl Mount Brandon, Carrountwohill, Benbulbin etc). This is not to put anyone off however it's best to know...

This hike was quite the experience. Echoing what others have said, this is a difficult hike for sure and the path isn't always clear. The views are absolutely stunning though and well worth it. We managed the whole loop in a little over 4 hours, but I tecommend taking your time and allowing for a bigger window of possible, just to enjoy and take it all in. Save some energy for the decent as well. It will hammer your knees and take whatever energy you have left.
Awe-inspiring sites await you at the top. This is a spectacular hike that provides everything Ireland has to offer in terms of mystical views. The lough is gorgeous, but you can also see as far out as the ocean, and plenty of Ireland’s “patch work quilt” geography. This is NOT an easy hike. I would categorize this as hard. And there are areas on the ascent which are daunting and quite dangerous. Like other Irish hikes, the trails are a bit scattered, and when scrambling up rocky, muddy heights, it can be nerve-wrecking. But the scenes at the top make it well worth it. It flattens out at the top and serves as a great location to pause for a snack and a look around. This is about a 4 hour hike up and around from the car park. The left side is more difficult than the right side.
