This is a really nice hike if you have a group with varying levels of fitness. It's a fairly easy hike up. The train is very well marked and there were ramps over bogs. The view at the summit is splendid and it's worth taking...More

A lovely hike with views over the valley that is easy to access from the Redbus. I suggest leaving downtown at 9:15 for 5 Euro. The friendly bus driver also recommended that we finish the walk at the Muckross house and Abbey where it was...More

Depends on personal hiking condition. We made it in 70 minutes to the top. But we were of good speed. I would say up to 100 minutes is ok.
