A path from the car park leads you up to the top of Knocknarea with panoramic views all around, bring a picnic!

A short(ish) steep climb that gets the heart racing but is well worth the effort for the view and the chance to admire the Stone Age passage tomb on the summit,

Bring a rock to lay on Queen Maeve’s grave! Not a tough climb, suitable to all. Short climb, but way worth it for the views at the top. Lovely coffee stand at the base, very friendly lady to chat to.
