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 752nd highest summit in Ireland.

I had originally intended to loop around to Slievebaun at the end of a Bran Scultair – Carriglachan walk. However the weather deteriorated too much by the time I reached Carriglachan (heavy hailstones in July, mixed with fierce thunder!) so I gave up on that idea. By the time I was heading home the sun was splitting the stones so I diverted off to find a quick way up Slievebaun.

I parked at S808 427 D at a set of locked double gates on the left. The road ends just ahead at a farm. A local on the road said the gates wouldn’t be used on the day, and I was ok to park there for an hour. Anyone else parking here should definitely ask at the farm for permission. Near this parking spot are two separate gates giving access into the fields below Slievebaun. I chose the right hand gate as there was livestock in the other field. I headed up through two fields and out onto the heathery summit area. As csd says, there is no distinct high point to this flat top. csd has nicely captured the view to Blackstairs Mountain from Slievebaun, so my photo shows the view SW to Bran Scultair, Carrigroe and Carriglachan. The eagle eyed will spot Brandon Hill lurking faintly in the background beyond.

The summit area is unmarked by tracks or any sort of human activity, and pink flowered heather is in abundance. It also offers expansive views to the N and E, although haze prevented me from seeing the sea. Because of its slightly isolated position, Slievebaun may never attract many walkers.
