Joyce says it is named after a cradle-like depression near the top, presumably the one occupied by Cleevaun Lough.   Mullaghcleevaun is the second highest mountain in the Wicklow area and the 22nd highest in Ireland. Mullaghcleevaun is the second highest point in county Wicklow.

After a couple of heavy rainy days a friend n I headed to car park at sorrel/black hill marked A in map at o045 109
. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon which quickly turned cold n cloudy. Wind picked up once we summited black hill n headed S/SE to Mullaghcleevaun. The heavy rain fall left the area close to the fence boggy but passable. We decided to come back the higher but further distance ground on way back in the hope to avoid the boggy patch. A pleasent hike with some lovely views across forestry and valleys. Steep enough climb up mull itself where we reached the summit. Very windy on top n heavy cloud coming in meant we didn't hang around too long as we knew we would have our final walk from black hill in darkness. Wind howling at our back on way down in came the rain making it darker early. Torch n head torches on we plodded along witnessing spectacular lightening brightening up the sky in the far distance. Higher path to black hill was a great shout and once we hit the trail at black hill we knew we were almost home. Great expierence to come down in a bit of darkness Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/20/comment/18688/
