Mullacor Mountain Mullach Mór A name in Irish (Ir. Mullach Mór [PNCW*], 'big summit') Wicklow County in Leinster Province, in Arderin, Vandeleur-Lynam, Irish Highest Hundred Lists, Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist Bedrock

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 178th highest place in Ireland.

Another route taking in Mullacor starts from the Shay Elliot memorial on the Military road. Follow the forest track up towards Cullentragh. After taking in the summit of Mullacor, head towards the Wicklow Way boardwalk and turn left towards Glenmalur. Some nice views of Glenmalur and Fraughan Rock Glen available on the way down. Follow the forest tracks back to the car parking area at the Shay Elliot memorial (the Harvey map shows them with reasonable accuracy). The picture shows the approach to Mullacor and Cullentragh (left and centre) from the south east. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/177/comment/1586/

This is a view of Mullacor taken from the upper slopes of Clohernagh at T060 927 starA. 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.

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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/177/comment/3582/

Wicklow walk

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.

For looking from rather than for being there!
by march-fixer  6 Mar 2022
This rather dull summit is not one that would have you clambering out of bed early in order to rush to the summit. That is not to say that it isn't a useful place to go. The journey there, from wherever you start, has definite benefits in terms of glorious views. Traveling from Glendalough should really be done via Derrybawn Mountain for the range of views that this route affords, while coming up from Glenmalure gives you the pleasure of looking back over the glen and into the glorious Fraughen Rock Glen.

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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/177/comment/2465/
