Mount Leinster is not the highest peak in the province of Leinster. That distinction belongs to Lugnaquillia, but Mount Leinster is the highest outside Wicklow. Due to the transmitter mast, there is a road to the top. There is also a substantial cairn on summit. On the saddle connecting to Slievebawn is a stone alignment called the Nine Stones (though there are actually ten).   Mount Leinster is the highest mountain in the Blackstairs Mountains area and the 44th highest in Ireland. Mount Leinster is the highest point in county Carlow and also the highest in Wexford.

New highest point for us!

Good challenging climb with steep sections. We parked at Nine Stones and walked up the access road. Great views from the top, although the area around the cairn and trig point was roped off and very wet undefoot.
A bit busy for our liking today with some noisy walkers disturbing the peace!
We then climbed the hill across the road from the Nine Stones which was a bit boggy, but again gave great views. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/44/comment/14704/
