Coming from Dublin
The journey takes just over an hour if there is no traffic.
Drive from Dublin along N11. Remain on the dual carriageway until you arrive at Arklow. Do not take the first Arklow Exit, take the second exit [EXIT 21] to Arklow (and Inch).
After you exit the M11. use the roundabout to go under the motorway. Take the first exit (direction Inch, R772) on the next roundabout (just on the other side of the motorway).
Drive about 2km south along the R772 road until you come to the small town of Inch. It consists of a Petrol Station. Turn right just before the petrol station, heading in towards Coolgreaney.
When you arrive in Coolgreaney, drive through the town. Turn left just after the large pub at the end of the town, just before the Gardiner Grain shop. Travel straight for 2km until you get to Ballyfad and then turn right (just before the small post office with the HB sign; if you pass a cemetery on your left you have gone too far). Continue on that road for 5km, keeping on the main road (veer left if in doubt at any Y junction!), go over two hump-back bridges, go up the hill and Monalea is below the road on the left hand side. There is a hard-to-see stone in the wall, which says Monalea.
Drive carefully these small roads are pernicious.
