  • Follow the N7 (Limerick Road) to Mountrath.
  • Just before Mountrath the road takes a sharp bend to the left. There is a traffic light. At this crossroad you take a right.
  • After about 200m there is a turn to the left. Follow that turn. (The signpost says Kinitty).
  • Follow that road for approximately 3 miles. (On your way you will pass a pub on your right (HOGANS), the live stock market on your left. After those landmarks the road takes a bend to the right and a bend to the left.)
  • After the left bend the road takes a sharp bend to the right. You should see a two-story house in front of you at that point. Follow the main road, which turns right.
  • About 400m after that bend, you should see a little white cottage and a turn to the right. Be careful it can be easily overlooked and you will end up on the mountain road to Kinitty.
  • Take that road for about 1.mile.
  • After that the road makes a slight turn to the left with a slight increase in the road you should see a big stonewall with a big red iron gate. There is a green old post box set into the wall.
