Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  30 Oct 2012 Leave the car at Rosmackowen Church V74200 47209 (Point A) and head up the little borheen immediately after the Church on the Castletownbere side.
Take the left hand fork after a few hundred meters and continue on through a gate following a rough track to the Glas Loughs at about 400 meters elevation.
The face of Knocknagree that looks out over Beara Island is the best approach to take with the least amount of climbing around the rocky folds typical of the area.
Down the rough far side then to a small lake and a climb where the ground gets gradually more rounded to the summit area
Point A: V74200 47209

Just a stone's throw from Hungry Hill. Or a short drive.
by dbloke  25 May 2010 The summit cairn on Maulin has grown a bit since Jackill's visit five years ago. Either that or he's been lying for years about how big six inches is! Most of the bog has been baked dry in all the hot weather we've been having, although there is a large muddy area away from the summit that looks like it's been part of a cattle stampede. The gentle SW slope makes for a quick, easy descent down to the track and the Beara Way.

Accessing the hills at Castletownbere via the Beara Way
by three5four0  16 Aug 2010 Climbed Maulin via the Beara way, we parked in the car park by the pier in Castletownbere and followed the Beara Way out of town. Where the Beara Way turns left at V685 465 (Point B), keep straight on till V70411 46740 (Point C), where the road turns left and climbs up hill. Follow this road, which turns into a track, up hill rejoining the Beara Way at Derrymihin East. At the apex of the spur leave the Beara way, by one of the three tracks marked on the map, and strike up hill over easy ground, towards pt 558. Once reached, its a further 3/4 km over a much easier gradient to the summit of Maulin, with its small white cairn.

The views are good, particularly towards Knocknagree and the rough ground of Hungry Hill. We continued onto traversing the minor top at pt 579 on our way to Lackawee.
Point B: V685 465 Point C: V70411 46740

Gruesome murders and royal graves...
by Conor74  19 Dec 2011 ...the gruesome tale is recounted by Richard Mersey in his "The Hills of Cork and Kerry", who mentions a visit of John Puxley (the owner of the copper mines that employed so many in Beara) to the summit of Maulin. He thought he saw a cairn at the top until he got closer and realised it was the body of a "middleman" who had been murdered and displayed like a scarecrow, and whose eyes had been plucked out by crows. Sadly I can't find any more on this wonderfully gruesome tale online, nor is it clear to me what he means by "middleman" - I will see if the local libraries can shed any more light. The summit is now marked by one of the more attractive cairns, small but built with blocks of marble. I guess the mountains on this the Cork side of the border have a gruesome tale to match the story of the Rabach and his cave in the "Pocket" in Kerry, to the east.

The area is also the site of a famous grave. Owen Mór, King of Ireland in circa 120 AD had fought a battle on the peninsula and after he was nursed back to health he sailed for Spain. There he met and married the Beara, daughter of the King of Castille in Spain. He returned to the area with her, and a large army, and took her to Bear Island where he named the whole peninsula after her. She was buried in Ballard Commons, the large valley that separates Maulin and Knocknagree.

What a Maulin
by jackill  25 May 2010 After resting at the small lake on the col after Knocknagree I headed for Maulin.
In contrast to Knocknagree , Maulin is covered in short heather with on the occasional bit of rock jutting out . The climb to the summit is initially a bit steep but levels off to a more gradual slope.
The summit is marked by a small pile of stones only about 6 inches high which could be easily missed, and is covered in a short, rough grass. The going underfoot is generally quite good with a few very wet areas which definately are to be avoided. After a short break to admire the views it was on to Lackawee. The photo was taken from the summit and looks out over Eyeries and Coulagh Bay. On the left are the lesser summits of the Slieve Mickish range , Mickish Mountain, Knockoura and Knockgour.

by Bleck Cra  18 Aug 2004 Evelyn, reference your recent comment vis-a-vis rubbish on the hill, the Mournes as you may know, is starting to look like the hood in Rio. Next time you see rubbish (and I mean the perpetrator/s), why not put THEM in your bin, They'll smell a bit , but sure don't they anyway ?
Good natured banter apart, this is becoming a serious problem. Any ideas ?
