We take a ride to visit this well known place in Northern Ireland. Great for hiking, but risky for small children as may require climbing. The view is breath taking. And a fab picture spot for long memories of yours. Give it a chance, but...More

Great day, nice walk that the 3 year old daughter could handle, only downside was the toilets at the bottom, lights didn't work, no soap, and generally a mess.

A beautiful location which was nice and quiet. The climb was moderately challenging but also enjoyable and well worth it once you got to the top. There are paths you can follow but these are not always obvious so watch out - I would not...More

Parking and climb are free. Opens 24/7. Take care about proper footwear, it is extremely slippery, when wet. Not suitable for little kids (under 8-9) as there is no paved or pre made trail up to the pinnacle.
