Two of the main attractions in Carrickgollogan are the viewing rock at Carrickgollogan hill to the south of the property and the now disused lead mine chimney at the northern boundary. Lead mining and smelting took place at the Ballycorus lead mine in the early 19th Century and continued until it was closed in the 1920s.
No trip to Carrickgollogan would be complete however without visiting the viewing rock. It is worth the short climb up a moderately sloped footpath to the exposed rock outcrop where you will discover one of the most spectacular views of south Dublin and north Wicklow.

Off the R117 between Enniskerry and Kilternan take Barnaslingan Lane to the top of the hill and turn left car park approx. 300m on left.
