Great Walk for those who are ‘able’ to walk. We parked in the car park and walked up. Took us roughly 20/30 min to get to the top. Some difficult parts but worth the view. We could see as far as the mourne mountains.

It’s easier on the lower path, it is a proper path and there are places to rest and leads up to the castle itself - I would test it first though as you know your mum better than me!
