Mullacor Mountain Mullach Mór A name in Irish

Bedrock type: Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist, (Maulin Formation)

The séimhiú of mhór is odd, since mullach is usually masculine and so one would expect 'Mullach Mór'. Price recorded the pronunciation 'Mullawore'. Theoretically, it could be Mullach Corr. However, in addition to the difficulty of explaining the cited pronunciation, corr as an adjective in place-names usually means 'pointed' rather than 'round', which would certainly not be appropriate for the dome of Mullacor.   Mullacor is the 177th highest place in Ireland.

This is a view of Mullacor taken from the upper slopes of Clohernagh at T060 927 A. In the foreground are the top of the steep northern slopes of Glenmalure and then the more gentle rising slopes to the summit of Mullacor. I've mostly climbed Mullacor on a circuit of Glendalough passing from Derrybawn to Lugduff although the Wicklow Way passes through the centre of the photo at the col west ( to the left ) of the summit.

ChristinaWalking on Mullacor, 2009
by ChristinaWalking  10 Feb 2009
Back on the 20th Nov gone I took a walk through Ballinafunshoge Forest and out on to Mullacor. An easy walk i made difficult by veering out of the lefthand side of the forest and up through overgrown chest high grass and shrubs. Clearing the forest, I turned to my right and on up to the Mullacor peak. Although very windy, there were still lovely views of Glenmalure area and over Lugduff and to Table Mountain. The picture shows some ships sleepers that have been placed leading the way back to the forest and the track back to coillte car park.
With a longer day (I only had two hours or so) you could venture further a feild and still be within easy distance of this second carpark. Linkback:

Wicklow walk
by Kennyj  5 May 2015
Went up Mullacor yesterday from the Shay Elliot memorial car park, following the forest path(ignore the first left hand junction) to its end,cross the wire fence at the sign for mountain access onto a stoney path up onto Braigue mountain and from there up a boggy path to the summit of Mullacor.The day been good and some time on my hands I decided to go onto Lugduff again following a wide boggy path.Plenty of company up here today most doing the circuit of Glendalough,some good views back down to Glendalough over to Turlough hill and to Fraughan Rock glen and Glenmalure on your left.Round trip of 3 hours 40 mins.

Yesterday, we did a half-horseshoe of Glendalough, despite the inclement weather, it was a very enjoyable trip. Ascended out of Glendalough past the Waterfall. Followed the wicklow way markers for a bit, then slogged SW up the slope of Derrybawn (missing the perfectly good path approximately 50m to our left - doh!). From here we continued along the ridge towards Mullacor, pausing to note the small cairn. From Mullacor, we headed to Lugduff, and then descended directly down the valley to the Glenealo bridge, over the swollen waters of the river. Followed the Miners road back to the carpark. 4 hours in total, with a small lunch stop where we crossed the wicklow way track emerging from the forest between Mullacor and Lugduff. This route would offer tremendous views over both Glendalough and Glenmaloure in good weather. Relativly walking too, once you find the paths :-) Linkback:

Did the Spink-Mullacor-Derrybawn circuit above Glendalough last Sunday, conditions generally very good although we missed out on the bright sun of Saturday.
A lot of erosion especially in the stretch between Mullacor and the beginning of Derrybawn - very muddy and the muddy stretches are getting wider. Might be a case for some boardwalk here - although we all have mixed feelings about these.

The steep path down off the end of Derrybawn down to the forest track leading past Poulanass waterfall to the upoper lake car park is also very tricky - lot of loose rock - which is ok when the weatrher is dry but treacherous when wet. This steep section best avoided in wet weather and instead take the longer loop down to the valley. by heading NW off the end of the ridge to the V inb the forest line where there is a stile

The Derrybawn section still must be the best ridge walks in Wicklow - mostly firm under foot and fantastic views towards Cloghernagh to the south and Camaderry to the north.
Sorry forgot camera so no pics Linkback:

Foggy Day Walk
by Geansai  25 Jun 2011
Mullacor can be reached in an hour and a half from the car park across the road from the pub at the glenmalure crossroads. If you feel like walking for exercise on a foggy day, forest tracks take you up to 550 meters and you can keep your bearings easy enough once out of the forest. Turn right at the crossroads and walk up the road a few hundred yards to the forest entrance on the left side of the road. There's a good map on a sign hear showing the forest tracks.Follow the wicklow way to a junction ( large boulder in the middle of the track just before the junction) . Turn right here instead of continuing left on the wicklow way. Soon you'll come to another junction. Keep left. Stay on the main stoney forest tracks. Ignore any grassy tracks that lead off. The track hairpins up to the left and you turn right just after this. Its straight on up now for over a mile. Then the track hairpins up to the left at some kind of little hut. You'll lose some height before coming to another junction shortly afterwards. Turn right and a few more minutes will bring you to the end of the track. Go up some steps here, straight on through a clearing and then bearing right to get out of the forest. You'll see a fence which is a good landmark for the way back. You start ascending with the forest edge to your left. Looking back you'll see a very long tree bough landmark sticking out at around a forty five degree angle just after the fence where you emerged.There are also some posts at intervals on the way up to Mullacor summit which is about 25 minutes from exiting the forest. You'll soon leave the forest edge behind and reach the flat summit area. I had to push on over boggy ground for a few hundred more yards before finding the cairn which seems to be on the north west side of the summit. Couldn't see anything for twenty yards in the fog up here but it was easy to retrace my steps back to the forest track. Linkback:
