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 361st highest place in Ireland.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Maulin (<i>Málainn</i>) in area Wicklow, Ireland
Picture: Maulin from the West.
 
A reasonably easy objective which can be a good start to many a circuit.
Short Summary created by simon3  2 Oct 2022
Maulin has earned the high rate of visits it has through various attractions. It's very accessible from the Crone Wood carpark, itself relatively near Dublin. It can be a component of many circular walks for example around the Dargle River valley and because it has fine views including towards the sea and the mountains.
An obvious place to start to reach it is from Crone Wood Carpark O1920 1417 starA from which the summit is 1.3km in a SW direction. Navigating to the top from the carpark can be done by two main switchback routes through the trees. One of these is shown on the current OSI sheet 56 and both are shown on the East-West 1:30000 map. It is also possible to park in the vicinity of the closed car park near O210 109 starB on "Long Hill" and take a path following the edge of the forest first up, then down and finally onto the ridge to the east of Maulin.
Maulin has experienced serious trail erosion particularly on the East side, which has attracted some remedial attention. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/327/comment/5087/
