dbloke on Maulin Mountain, 2009
by dbloke  1 Jan 2009
After a 2 month hiatus (health, car and weather issues) New Year's Day 2009 was time to hit the hills again. So, best to ease into it with Ireland's 1029th highest then. Parked the car next to the old building at the crossroads at Q738 313 starC where there is a signpost to Dahillan's Well. In completely the opposite direction follow the bohereen south and then follow the bog road all the way to the top. Maulin is a featureless mountain with a broad plateau covered in heather and gorse. There's nothing to mark the top but the North Kerry Way passes over the highest point. There's also a geocache up here so killed two birds. On a clear day there would be great views south towards Bana Strand, the Maharees, Slieve Mish and Brandon. North towards Ballybunnion and Clare. Today was hazy. There is a good description of the North Kerry Way at www.askaboutireland.ie under topics|sport. Round trip under two hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/3496/
