Keadeen Mountain is not obviously flat-topped either when seen from the N (Church Mtn) or from the contours on the map. Céide can also mean a path, way or a place of assembly, fair site, etc. One of these other meanings may be relevant in this case. As it is a townland name, it may not refer to the mountain originally.   Keadeen Mountain is the 186th highest summit in Ireland.

A worthwhile climb.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  23 Jul 2012 Park at the Dwyer/Mc Allister cottage car park S9663491281 (Point A) and walk NW along the road for some 350m to a track on the left. Follow this along to S9567491347 (Point B) where a narrower forestry track leads off left (S) steeply uphill. Some way along this track, at a fork, keep right and follow the track straight ahead and alongside the line of an old moss covered stone ditch (on the right). This leads up to open ground. Turn left and follow the forest edge up to pick up the start of an old raised stone ditch going S steeply uphill. Follow up to it's end S9562590300 (Point C). Turn right and go some 500m along more gentle, heather covered ground, to gain the substantial summit cairn and then the high point, marked by a trig pillar some 100m further along. Return by way of ascent, a walk which can be comfortably completed in under 2.5 hours. For a longer circular route go SE along the road from the car park for 2.5k to S985895 (Point D). Follow the southern edge of the forest up W over Slievereagh (531m) and then SW for some 300m before swinging W and then NW up the shoulder of Keadeen Mt. From the top descend by the first route described in this summary to complete the circular walk.
Point A: S96634 91281 Point B: S95674 91347 Point C: S95625 90300
Point D: S985 895

Western Views
by csd  14 Jul 2012 Because of Keadeen's somewhat isolated position at the western edge of the Wicklow mountains there are some great views from the top. Here's Balineddan, Slievemaan and Lugnaquilla (in cloud as usual) viewed from Keadeen. We came up the western side from Ballinabarry Gap (S985 895) handrailing the forest at first and then following the heavily eroded track the rest of the way to the summit. Sadly the track has been badly cut up by scramblers/quad bikes.

by csd  19 Oct 2003 The view west from the cairn at the summit. Part of the cairn has been built up into a wall, which provides useful shelter against the wind.

by evelyn  25 Jun 2004 I've climbed Keadeen twice from Ballinabarney Gap, once I've left my car there, it's just the mountain and me, unlike many of the other mountains in the Wicklow area, it's not such a popular mountain to climb. That makes it all the better for the rest of us who know what fantastic views you can get once at the top, and you have it all to yourself!

by GWPR  7 Apr 2003 From Blessington continue on the n81 to turn left for Donard.
In Donard go left and next right to pass the Youth Hostel on the left.
Take next right to Knockarrigan. Now follow signs for Dwyer/McAllister Cottage.
Park in small Car Park opposite cottage.
Leave Car Park and follow road to right to reach forest track on left.
Follow forest track and at first bend enter wood to follow edge of wood.
Where the wood ends on your right there is a track all the way to the summit.
The summit has a scattered cairn and a trig point.
The walls circling the Brusselstown Ring , the biggest ringfort in Ireland , can be seen to the NW. It was constructed in the Iron Age to guard the entrance to the rich farmland of the Glen of Imaal.
To the East Lugnacoille and it’s neighbours are impressive.
From the summit head south following a fence and later a stone wall
to reach Carrig which has a small cairn. The view back to Keadeen is beautiful.
On my way back I saw this beautiful butterfly!
