This is a shoulder of Blackstairs Mountain lying completely in Co. Wexford. Note that there is another hill of this name NW of Mount Leinster, though it is spelt Slievebawn in English.   Slievebaun is the 753rd highest summit in Ireland.

White way to do it
by eamonoc  11 Apr 2014
Thursday 10/4/2014. Followed wicklores directions but did not park at double gates as they were open and some farm activity was taking place. I started at S 80902 42309 B, parked car directly opposite the rough entrance to two new bungalows, enough room to park for one car so as not to block road. Just past the bungalows there is a well made farm track giving access to the open Mt above without having to jump any fences it leads up to a high field with a gate at the far left corner, with heathery slopes just beyond. There must have been a gorse fire here in the last few years as the remains of dried burnt gorse bushes abound. It was just a case of following in an upward direction to the highest point on Slievebaun. I passed lots of white stones on the way up, several of them were quite large, is this how Slievebaun got its name? Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/637/comment/15986/
