Errisbeg Hill


Errisbeg Hill

Errisbeg Hill (298metres) is located to the west of Roundstone Village. It is the only significant hill along this section of Coastline. Errisbeg has been described as a botanist’s delight as there are many wild flowers, rare to this country, found on its slopes.

The pleasant walk from Roundstone village to the top takes about two hours. From the summit there are wonderful views of The Twelve Bens to the North East, and the Atlantic Ocean and its islands to the South and West. To the North you will marvel at the lake strewn Roundstone Bog complex which is an area of scientific importance.

To get there just follow the small road up past O’Dowds Pub, continue straight ahead for a mile until the road ends. Go through the gate and follow the rough track leading to the summit.
