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 21st highest in Ireland. Mullaghcleevaun is the second highest point in county Wicklow.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Mullaghcleevaun (<i>Mullach Cliabháin</i>) in area Wicklow, Ireland
Picture: Mullaghcleevaun and corrie from the East
 
Bulky rounded summit which is the crux of many North Wicklow routes
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, simon3  17 Aug 2023
Mullaghcleevaun is a bulky mountain in NW Wicklow, just a few km E of Blessington Lakes. Commanding 360 degree views of the Wicklow uplands, its steep NE corrie is home to Cleevaun Lough. Navigational ability is a must in mist as the top is fairly featureless and there is dangerous ground to its NE.

NW. Mullaghcleevaun can be reached from the NW via Black Hill starting from O04384 10845 starA. There is a good track initially but after Black Hill it can be quite boggy esp. after rain. (3.5h+ 12k round trip)

SE. Park near O10271 05243 starB under Carrigshouk and, avoiding the very steep eastern side of Carrigshouk, head on a feint trail in a NW direction until you get to the ridge that connects M with Carrigshouk. It's a straightforward ridge walk after this although care should be taken in the mist as the path is not always well defined before East Top. (2h+ 9k round trip)

NE. Start at the Sally Gap [O13028 10994 starC] and start by following directions for Carrigvore. It's a much walked route but tracks aren't always easy to find [3 to 4 hrs one way and over 12k]

E. Park at O11313 07381 starD and follow directions to Duff Hill before joining the previous trail.

If linking M with Tonlegee beware that the Barnacullian ridge can be very soft - it's best to walk on the E side of this. Be aware that the Glenmacnass River may become impassable quickly in rain.

Short return tracks include track/2370 and track/1729
