Another fantastic Irish Top 10 Bike Climb.  This one is scenic and STEEEEP!!  The climb averages 11.3% and has a 500 meter segment of 13% at the very start of the climb.  

Danger signs warn of Risk of Ice falling

Okay. You are forewarned . . .

As the name suggests, the road which takes you to the summit of this mountain - topped with a visible cell tower from the bottom - the road is in fact private. We had no issues on the day that we rode though, and I’d wager a bet that you’re not likely to have any issues while cycling to the summit. It is a very rural country out here and folks are more likely to question WHY you would want to ride a bike to the top than give you grief for doing so. There’s no nice way to say it. This climb stinks…truly smells of sheep excrement, particularly on the lower slopes. Still, the sheep make for an interesting backdrop and will no doubt entertain you as you deal with Mullaghansh’s steep incline. We met some workers at the summit that didn’t seem to care that we were up there and didn’t much want to talk.
