Description:
Carrick Mountain is located in the eastern foothills of the Wicklow Mountains in the Republic of Ireland. Historically it was called Carrigmurrely (1756) and Carrickmacreily (1795). It rises directly above the village of Glenealy on the R752, midway between Rathnew and Rathdrum. The mountain is, bar a few large rocky knolls, completely covered in forest. There is a network of forest roads on the hill, with long straights, steeps slopes, hair-pin bends; the forest roads, with their sand and gravel surfaces, ascend to within 100 m of the summit.

It is a very popular location for car rallying (official and unofficial).

There are some granite outcrops near the summit of Carrick, which have been established as a minor rock-climbing location. About 15 single-pitch routes have been recorded, at all grades up to E2.
