Maulin Mountain Málainn A name in Irish
(Ir. Málainn [PNCW], possibly 'high or sloping ground') Wicklow County in Leinster Province, in Arderin List, Dark blue-grey slate, phyllite & schist Bedrock

Málainn is rare element of obscure origin and meaning, occurring in a handul of place-names scattered throughout the country. For origin of name, see articles by Paul Tempan: The Element Málainn in Place-names in the Kerry Magazine, No. 18, 2008 (15-16) and An Eilimint Málainn i Logainmneacha in the Donegal Annual 2006 (218-19). There are references in early Irish texts to Málu, site of a battle in Leinster. This mountain has been proposed as an identification by Eoin MacNeill (JRSAI lxv, 14), but this is far from certain.   Maulin is the 362nd highest place in Ireland.

(14/08/04) Having made a successful attempt at Ben Nevis on the 01/08/04, with clear views, in warm sunny weather all the way to the top and down again, and I was able to see the splendour of the Scottish Highlands and lochs below me - which was a nice change from my 2 previous failed attempts as unforecasted thunder, lighning, gales and blizzards descended from nowhere! Hence I turned back to the relative safety of my car! On my return for my bi weekly walk in the hills, I wanted something a) close to home b) not that demanding and c) I hadn't climbed before - with the excellent comments about this mountain on your site - Maulin was chosen! I parked in Crone Forest car park - loads of space 100 cars + maybe? Followed Wicklow Way (WW) up through the forest and more or less followed csd's route to the top. The path seems to have had recent work on it, with a path marked out to reduce / minimise erosion with a few signs indicating to walkers to please stay within the path boundary. I found csd's wall - can't really miss it, and followed down a sharp descent to a wider path turning right and contouring below the shoulder already climbed. As this path curves right and begins to rise, there is a wooden stile and gate which leads in to the forest on your left and down a ride - I presume this was csd's way too! Again this is quite a steep descent, an old wall to your left, some felling on your right. At bottom of this path, I turned left and almost immediately right on to what could only be described as a not overly used mountain bike trail which wound its way down hill through the trees, crossing a wall a few times until you have a clear descent along the top of the wall, which ends back on the WW, turn left and head for home!! I wore shorts and didn't need my gaiters which I had stowed in my backpack having read previous comments, but boots are essential! A wonderful walk, it took me approx 3 hours but then I did have a few stops to admire the scenery, take on water and have a munch which is why I walk in the mountains anyway!!
Having seen some naive people on the mountains recently on Ben Nevis and indeed Maulin - respect mountains, respect weather, be prepared for evey eventuality and take home your rubbish, I followed a small group of walkers on Maulin who left their discarded water bottles and sandwich wrappers on the hillside, they are now in my bin.

Walked Sunday 4/9/2006. Opposite route to CSD below. I followed the forest trail, veering off the WW and up the steepish zig-zagging track up the the summit. Had lunch trying to get some impossible shelter at the cairn, Very windy - coffee leaving the flask horizontally. Then followed the track down and over the shoulders to the east of Maulin, joined the WW to follow back around to the car park at Crone. Magnificent views of the waterfall at Powerscourt. However - any delay at the memorial bench at the view point ensured being eaten alive by the many flies !! - I think the dampness combined with a lovely warm day had brought them all out. Linkback:

1st of November, started at Crone Park and a perfect pick for a short Sunday hike to Maulin. And as you can see very very windy. Linkback:

Parked in Crone and followed the WW up to the Powerscourt waterfall viewing point, continuing then following the obvious track to the summit. This leg was hampered by strong wind. Up over summit and down to the Style and forest track back to Car. Linkback:

A closer view of Maulin, taken from the Tonduff side of Raven's Glen. Raven's Glen makes a nice sheltered spot for lunch - just watch for the heather scratching your legs if you have shorts on! Linkback:
