Easy climb up boreen and rough track
Short Summary created by Geo,  11 Jun 2016
Park at Q7386731394 A at a junction where there is a sign for Dahillan's Well. The North Kerry Way exits a boreen here and you go South on this boreen for about 150m to a junction where the NKW (White loop) turns right and follow this. The track is sound underfoot almost the whole way to the summit at Q7221330455 B. There are a few wettish spots but boots will be quite adequate.
The return trip from car to summit is approx 5.5km and 45min up and 35min return.
Views are extensive if cloud cover is not obstructive, going from Loop Head in North clockwise over the Shannon Estuary, Ballybunion, North Kerry, Tralee Bay, Slieve Mish to South, Then Brandon ridge and the Atlantic to the West.
Well worth a visit on it's own or as part of a North Kerry Way walk (esp. the Kerry Head sections) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/5789/

dbloke on Maulin Mountain, 2009
by dbloke  1 Jan 2009
After a 2 month hiatus (health, car and weather issues) New Year's Day 2009 was time to hit the hills again. So, best to ease into it with Ireland's 1029th highest then. Parked the car next to the old building at the crossroads at Q738 313 C where there is a signpost to Dahillan's Well. In completely the opposite direction follow the bohereen south and then follow the bog road all the way to the top. Maulin is a featureless mountain with a broad plateau covered in heather and gorse. There's nothing to mark the top but the North Kerry Way passes over the highest point. There's also a geocache up here so killed two birds. On a clear day there would be great views south towards Bana Strand, the Maharees, Slieve Mish and Brandon. North towards Ballybunnion and Clare. Today was hazy. There is a good description of the North Kerry Way at www.askaboutireland.ie under topics|sport. Round trip under two hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/3496/

three5four0 on Maulin Mountain, 2009
by three5four0  17 Sep 2009
Parked up at Dblokes recommended spot, and then spent some time taking to the house owner in the lane. He told us that he used to climb Maulin mountain every day and in general imparted local knowledge to us, a fine man indeed.

Followed the North Kerry Way to the summit, with the eagle eyed noting that the summit just lies over the wall running along the track (north side). A quick visit and returned back the way we came. Great views towards Brandon, which, was cloud free for the first time in our holiday of 9 days. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/4109/
