Little Sugar Loaf, also called Giltspur Mountain[1] (Irish: Giolspar, earlier name Beannach Bheag), is a hill in County Wicklow, Ireland.


The mountain is situated East-North-East of the Great Sugar Loaf, separated from it by the N11 dual carriageway. The northern side of Little Sugar Loaf directly overlooks the town of Bray; the eastern side (see photo) looks across the R761 between Bray and Greystones to the western slope of Bray Head.

It is readily identifiable by its distinctive rocky double summit which contrasts with the hilltops in the area which, apart from Bray Head, are very regular in appearance. It is the 913th highest summit in Ireland.
