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 192nd highest place in Ireland.

The easiest way to climb Keadeen is from the forest car park at Ballinabarny Gap S9846 8953 A, walking up the side of the forest and following a clearly visible track. We did it for a refreshing climb on St. Stephen's Day. 6.9km to the cairn and back, 318m ascent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/4332/

by Geo  20 Jun 2010
Done as part of Glen of Imaal Challenge on 19th June 2010. Never out here before and went off public road at S9404289276 B where there was a checkpoint. Tough slog up after the 9km road walk from Donard, Feet were burning. Had a great day. Well done to the organisers. Thanks folks! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/5891/

Look at all this white stuff :D
by LizzieMurray  21 Jan 2013
Keadeen Mountain, Rathdangan today 18 Jan 2013 . Its only 653m but dont underestimate her. She is deceivingly steep with quite a few humps up and down and in this snow its hard to determine whats hard snow and whats bog until you actually take a step so you kind of have to negotiate every step. Most enjoyable mountain and lovely place to shelter at the top for a spot of lunch :D Recommend this to anyone interested in an easy enough to find summit once you can zig zag the swamps Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/14906/

Short, Steep climb
by Val Jones  30 Dec 2015
Climbed Keedean yesterday, a nice short but steep climb, giving us time to get back before storm Frank hit. Tried following Harry and GWPRs directions to get up through the forest, not sure if we stayed on course. We turned left off the forest road and followed an old wall up to the top of the forest, with mature trees on the right and young forest on the left. At the top we went up diagonally to pick up the old wall continuing up. Steep going. Very windy on the summit. We continued on to Carrick, the returned the same way. t
There's a wall in the saddle between Keedean and Carrick which would have given us better shelter for lunch stop than the cairn on Keedean. A nice hike for this time of year, it would be great on a really clear day. Also remarkable dry compared to other parts of Wicklow considering the wet winter.

Alternative route
by ewen  1 Oct 2017
Many people are finding the usual route from the Dwyer/McAllister cottage a bit offputting with the signage etc.
An alternative route is to start at the forest road entrance at the Ballinabarney gap S9846089524 C Room for 3 cars.
Follow the forestry road, always taking the left hand fork until you reach the end of the road at S9701590064 D. You will see a track that leads to a gate and a fence. The fence is damaged so best not to cause any further damage' Go through the gate and turn left up the track keeping the fence on your left until the corner where the fence turns left S9679189791 E. There is a well worn track heading up hill that leads directly to the top of keadeen.
There is evidence of previous break ins at the forest gate, broken glass etc so it wont be as secure as the car park at the cottage. Still, there don't seem to be any access issues. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/186/comment/19734/
