Well worth the visit and walk to the top. A large car park with interesting explanation of the history of the site. I visited during the hot dry spell and could see for miles in each direction. A commanding location overlooking Enniscorthy.

If you get a decent day, this is definitely worth a visit. The historical aspect is sad as so many lots their lives but the scenery is amazing, you would sit there for hours and just move around a little to catch a different county.

We visited this by car, as it is a very steep climb, and we definitely weren't fit enough to walk it. You cannot climb to the top of the hill, but you can park near the top, and make the most of the lovely views...More
