Great way to blow the cobwebs away or work of one of those amazing full Irish Breakfast we had all been having. Try and get there before or after the mist as I am sure you will enjoy the view.

The drive is definitely not for the faint of heart! Stop part way up for a little break and a beautiful view and then keep going and enjoy the breathtaking view from up top. The parking lot provides a great spot to start your hike...More

Definitely worth a visit. Been here twice now and loved it both times. Prepare for bad weather. The wind and rain can be severe. But that is part of the fun of the walk. It has a road all the way so trainers are fine...More

This is my second visit to Mount Leinster, the previous visit being too foggy to see anything. This time the climb was worth it, as the top was clear and we had a 360° view of the surrounding countryside. Starting at The Nine Stones car...More

The drive up the mountain was heart thumping, but taken at a slow soeed esp. when nearing the car park at the top. Excellent walks up to the RTE masts and more. Views are stunning so bring your camera.

We went out there on a Saturday morning. The weather was perfect and the views were amazing. After we arrived went up the small hill for a walk. Great day out, highly recommended.

We climbed the lower peak with two children and they loved it. No facilities at the bottom of the road to the peak with mast so make sure you have your food and flask with you. It can be slippery if it's wet so good...More
