Keadeen Mountain is not obviously flat-topped either when seen from the N (Church Mtn) or from the contours on the map. Céide can also mean a path, way or a place of assembly, fair site, etc. One of these other meanings may be relevant in this case. As it is a townland name, it may not refer to the mountain originally.   Keadeen Mountain is the 190th highest place in Ireland.

I've climbed Keadeen twice from Ballinabarney Gap, once I've left my car there, it's just the mountain and me, unlike many of the other mountains in the Wicklow area, it's not such a popular mountain to climb. That makes it all the better for the rest of us who know what fantastic views you can get once at the top, and you have it all to yourself!

From Blessington continue on the n81 to turn left for Donard.
In Donard go left and next right to pass the Youth Hostel on the left.
Take next right to Knockarrigan. Now follow signs for Dwyer/McAllister Cottage.
Park in small Car Park opposite cottage.
Leave Car Park and follow road to right to reach forest track on left.
Follow forest track and at first bend enter wood to follow edge of wood.
Where the wood ends on your right there is a track all the way to the summit.
The summit has a scattered cairn and a trig point.
The walls circling the Brusselstown Ring , the biggest ringfort in Ireland , can be seen to the NW. It was constructed in the Iron Age to guard the entrance to the rich farmland of the Glen of Imaal.
To the East Lugnacoille and it’s neighbours are impressive.
From the summit head south following a fence and later a stone wall
to reach Carrig which has a small cairn. The view back to Keadeen is beautiful.
On my way back I saw this beautiful butterfly! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/430/

Climbed Keadeen on 27 February 2004. Great steep little climb and a smashing view of Lug from the summit. Nice with a bit of snow thrown in for good measure!
Ideal way to pass a few hours or to build up stamina for bigger ventures. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/872/

Went up Keadeen today with the kids. Started out from Dwyer/McAllister car park and up forest path about 200m down the road from car park (via sheep pen). Talked with local farmer about the heavy rain in recent days. Followed forest road to turning circle, then about 50m further on turned left up a steep rough forest road. At junction with green older forest track (S95631 91167 A) we stayed left but if you could also go straight for an easier approach. Once the road left the trees we cut right up along the stone wall, over a stile and straight up to the top - tough going on the heather for even a hardy 8 year old. Great views all round. Returned by a timber posted boundary fence from cairn - steeper but quick. Cut back via aforementioned green forest (S95462 90903 B) to arrive back original forest road. Then had fun trying to get round full pen of sheep without upsetting them too much. Not another soul on the mountain and Fentons quiet also.

Climbed Keadeen on 11-5-12.Parked at Dwyer/McAllister Cottage car park which has enough room for 6-8 cars easily at point S96611 91266 C and walked roughly 200m NW back up the roadway to a gate at point S96370 91455 D.Follow track over a few fences for about 300m until the track forks left and right.Take the right track and follow the switchbacks all the way up through the forest until it reaches the clearing.From there (S95617 90306 E) it is a steep enough 1km slog SW uphill to the summit (S95395 89766 F)which contains a large cairn and a trig pillar located a few metres away.Spectacularly expansive 360 deg views of the Wicklow mountains await(Weather permitting!)
