Having decided to visit all the summits in the North Kerry area listed in Mountainviews (yes-there are only 2!) on a fine late September day we started with the lower summit of Maulin at 217m. Approaching from the west we left a narrow road at Q71739 30063 E where the Kerry Way follows a grassy track to the summit, a distance of approx 800m. We were rewarded with clear views of the Brandon ridge, Slieve Mish mountains and Loop Head to the north. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/20903/
