Great Sugar Loaf Mountain (Ó Cualann)

Open KML file to view Great Sugar Loaf Mountain in Google Earth!

Great Sugar Loaf Mountain (Ó Cualann) arises at the verge of the Wicklow Mountains, just south of Bray. The combination of its conical tip and its isolation from other hills makes the Great Sugar Loaf one of Ireland's most distinctive peaks. His overall shape reminds of a volcano and though it is only 503m high, it appears much taller due to its height relative to the surrounding landscape.

The end of the trail is adventurous because hikers need to climb the last 50m to reach the summit. However, they will be rewarded with spectacular views to Howth, Powerscourt Estate, the Wicklow Mountains and over Killiney Bay.
