Parked up at Dblokes recommended spot, and then spent some time taking to the house owner in the lane. He told us that he used to climb Maulin mountain every day and in general imparted local knowledge to us, a fine man indeed.

Followed the North Kerry Way to the summit, with the eagle eyed noting that the summit just lies over the wall running along the track (north side). A quick visit and returned back the way we came. Great views towards Brandon, which, was cloud free for the first time in our holiday of 9 days. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/4109/
