Hill of Allen

Sacred Hill


The Hill of Allen stands out of the Bog of Allen like an island. It has an awful lot of folklore attached to it re the Irish mythical hero Fionn MacCumhail (who is often associated with the sun and brightness). There is room for about two cars to park on the south side of the hill coming from Kildare/Newbridge a little after a small power-plant on the left.
There are paths up the hill from here and the views from it are amazing looking over the bog of allen, into wicklow and the curragh and Cloghan Hill is interdivisable from here.
