  • Visited Benbulben when I was young, but I don't remember doing so. Delighted to see it now, not disappointed. Peaceful, beautiful land all around. Have heard Benbulben referred to as a small Table Mou...  read more »
  • I done the Forest Walk with the dogs and it was well worth it. There are decent gravel paths too that are well marked. You get a good view of the Mountain and the surrounding scenery - ie the beach, e...  read more »
  • So much has been written about this mountain that dominates the landscape of Sligo so that it is difficult to come up with other words. Beautiful, wonderful, threatening, striking, everything has already been said and more than true. Ben Bulbin is certainly all and more. Less well known and something I raise here though is that I was one of the easiest mountains Bulbin in climbed into it. In between 30 and 45 min you stand on top of the plateau, if you know where to start, of course. The reward is more than worth it. Here so directly but the ROUTE of the N15 to on top: follow the N15 to about a mile beyond "Drumcliff", turn right at the sign for "Ballintril lick". Go half a mile further down the road with the sign "North Sligo Waterworks" (das your most important landmark on your way towards it, so first find this weary). Continue for a half mile until you reach a fork in the road and go there over the bridge (it is perhaps wiser and I recommend this highly to parking (there is some space) and the rest on foot. approximately a half-mile to where the road disappears. cross the bog about and full of the small river (the gully) to top (on the left near the top in the neighborhood of the source is a small cave (Darmuid's Cave, das not another). Once on top of that soggy meadow in the air go right for Ben Bulbin on the plateau and the left brings you to Ben Whiskin. On top of the plateau and to Bulbin's rand (bit careful here) you'll be rewarded with gorgeous views of Slieve Leaguue, among others, in the distance, Drumcliff bay, Sligo and the Ox Mountains. By its easy climb life versus great reward in terms of scenic views can I strongly recommend Bulbin sure, even to people who want to give a hillwalking es probeerselke ... Just do it. .. Don't need when told that this version of Ben Bulbin anyway a little bit condition calls (not that you are an everyday athlete should hear), and you do not you little men (maskes) to bring on this hike. Do not snack and a drink (also pick everything you bring up takes back down and a charged pheune, you never know (it's Ireland so even on a beautiful day can be a lightweight regenjaske doesn't hurt either) ... Have fun and, above all, Be Safe ...
