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 45th highest in Ireland. Mount Leinster is the highest point in county Carlow and also the highest in Wexford.

Hard slog
by Kennyj  11 Apr 2015
Took the long way to the summit today,parking at Sculloge Gap and heading up Shannon's lane as for the route up Knockroe.Headed for spot height 594 marked Stoolyen on the East West map.Its easy enough to miss the narrow track to this lower summit that's marked by a small cairn but it starts around S282500 I 151200 J and from here there's a narrow path that meanders all the way to the mast at Mount Leinsters summit.Freezing at the top this morning with ice falling from the mast but super views all round.Time taken 2 hours 45 minutes round trip, elevation gain of 703 m to summit height of 793m Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/44/comment/17922/
