Summary for Ballineddan Mountain (Sliabh Bhuaile an Fheadáin): A simple stroll to the top with possibilities for greater things.

Picture: Looking SE to Ballineddan Mt
The direct route to the top starts at A (S98676 90360) where a stile leads on to a track heading ENE. About 200m along is a gate with access out to the open hillside and a clearly defined track which can be followed up to a bend to the right (SE) some 250m further along. After a further 150m the grassy track swings NE and then E up to B (T001 901) where it turns left to go NNE to the top. Up and down is some 3.6k. For a longer day, having checked that the Glen of Imaal Artilerery Range is not operating, it is worth considering continuing NE to the col with Slievemaan and then E to it's boggy top before going NE by a reasonably definable track to Lugnaquilla. From the summit retrace the route W back to C (T027 917) and then go ESE down a short steep rocky section to reach a more grassy and gentle slope leading down across Upper Corrig and Camarahill D (S998 924). Continue down to pass through a wooden gate (E (S98900 92750)). Once through follow the surfaced track down to the Camarra cross roads at CamHill X (S984 929) where a left turn (S) leads out to a minor road about 1.3 k along ( BlNedin Fk (S985 916)). Continue S on this road for 1.3k to the start point for Ballineddan Mt. a walk of about 15k.

You can reach Ballineddan from the road at Ballinfoyle, where there is a three way junction, parking at around F (S986 903). There is a prominent gap in the forest there which leads directly onto rough moorland below the mountain. There are other routes as mentioned in this note which was originally on the MCI website: "If you are walking on the northwest slope of Ballineddan Mountain please use the stile and gate provided at the bottom of the slope. Damage has been done to the fence and if this continues the farmer will deny access. The stile is at GG (R994 910) and the gate at GH (R997 914)."

Starting up Ballineddan is one way of reaching Lugnaquillia as our photo from the summit shows. Lugnaquillia is the mountain on the left. You can go directly to it from Ballineddan or via Slievemaan, the mountain to the right. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/189/comment/528/

Similar shot to Simon's, on a slightly colder 08.02.2004. I thought it might be easy to follow the stream that marks the boundry of the artillery range down from the summit of Ballineddan -- how wrong I was. The boundry fence with the farmer's land crosses onto the range side of the stream, so it's not a matter of simply following it down to the road. Should have paid attention to simon and berber!

Near Ballinfoyle (F (S986 903)) there is a track leading up to Ballineddan. Here you will find this stout gate with chain. On this occasion we welcome the locked gate because it is intended to keep quads and scramblers out who are causing serious environmental damage. This damage is particularly bad near Slievemaan as you can see from earlier comments in Mountain Views. You can even see the start of the damage to the left of the photo.

We understand that the landowner is not opposed to hillwalkers using the path up Ballineddan. We would request that hillwalkers take special care to avoid damaging fences and adding to any path erosion. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/189/comment/940/

Picture: Descending W from Ballineddan Mt. with view across to Keadeen Mt.
A pleasing end to a misty wind swept day.
by Harry Goodman 21 May 2012
I climbed Ballineddan Mt for the first time on 19 May 2012 as the final top in a round over Camarahill, Lugnaquilla and Slievemaan. We started and finished at Fenton's Pub in Seskin. Unfortunately low mist, strong winds and some rain made the walk less enjoyable than it might otherwise have been and views from the top of Lug were non existent. This was the first time I had approached Lugnaquilla from the Glen of Imaal and was pleasantly surprised at the gentleness and straight forwardness of the ascent route compared with past approaches I have made from Glenmalure and Glen Ow. Although straightforward in clear conditions the track junction for the route down to Slievemaan had to be found at I (T02700 91700) but once identified was easy to follow. Once on Slievemaan we headed down W for approximately 800m to the col with Ballineddan Mt. before continuing up, in the same direction, to the top, a further 800m along and marked by a small stone cairn. Fortunately as we left the top the mist started to lift and gave us a very pleasing aspect W across the valley to Keadeen Mt. as we strolled down a wide and good grassy track to an access stile and the minor road at A (S98676 90360). From here we made our way N back for some 3.5k to the start of our circuit at Seskin. For anyone interested in climbing Ballineaddan Mt. as a single top I would recommend parking at the stile A (S98676 90360) and following the good track up and down. At the time of writing a rough cleared area has been made beside the stile but access to it is denied by a padlocked gate. Perhaps plans are being made to make this an off road parking area at some time in the future. This would also be a good starting point for climbing Lugnaquilla at times when access over Camarahill is denied due to activities on the Artillery Range.

barryredmond on Ballineddan Mountain
by barryredmond 7 Sep 2009
I climbed this in July 2008 on a beautiful really sunny afternoon. I followed the directions given in Joss Lynams book about easy walks in Dublin/Wicklow.
From the road near Ballinabarney gap it took an hour to the top. I parked near the military warning sign which is on the southern base of the mountain.
I started through a locked gate and moved up in a firebreak gap in the wood. About 100m up, there is another gate (again locked) At this point you leave the edge of the forest and begin walking ENE up the hill. There is a track which I followed from here to within 100m of the top. Its a vehicle track but has not been used in a while (no evidence of the dreaded quadbikes).
Its an easy walk then to the top. There's a small stone cairn at the top and a good view of Lug (to the ENE) with many walkers on it (spotted through the binoculars). Slievemaan is close by - to the East.
I can see why this could be an access route up Lug.......maybe for another day.

I chose an alternative route down, heading SE, again following J Stones suggestion in the book. I found access to the road through the forest very difficult, hand and knees stuff in very wet and muddy underfoot. Either descend further to the East, or follow the original route back down. Either is straightforward Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/189/comment/3263/
