Price suggests that Carriglineen may derive rather from Ir. Carraig Glinnín, 'rock of the little glen'.   Carriglineen Mountain is the 713th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Carriglineen from the north.
Fairly steep on three sides with good views.
Short Summary created by simon3  7 Jul 2013
Carriglineen is relatively steep on three sides, the exception being the NE spur. It provides attractive views to the end of the Glenmalure valley. For example it is possible to see the Faninierin-Croaghanmoira-Ballincor group as a whole.

One obvious place to start to reach it is from the Shay Healy memorial at around T1296 9223 A (Point A). It is also possible from the SE using the road that starts at T 115 902 B (Point B). (There is a sign requesting that visitors ring regarding entry, however the owner is happy at responsible walker access).

As of 2013 the forest to the NW is notoriously dense and not recommended. Linkback: Picture about mountain Carriglineen Mountain in area Dublin/Wicklow, Ireland

Great views after a short climb
by tmsr  13 Aug 2015
We approached Carriglineen from Kirikee and approached it over a stile from the forest path. It is a handy enough ascent that opens out to a summit area that provides views all around the valleys. Easiest car parking access is from Shay Elliott car park as mentioned before. Could be boggy enough in spots in winter by the looks of it. Linkback:

Followed wicklore's excellent route to both this and Kirikee. Two hours to do both tops. The summit itself is quite ordinary, but some of the views are pretty decent. Linkback:

Picture: Looking up Glenmalur from Carriglineen
csd on Carriglineen Mountain, 2007
by csd  24 Jun 2007
Having completed Kirikee, I approached Carriglineen from the north as suggested by padodes. While not blessed with quite the same weather, the views up Glenmalur to the Fraughan Rock Glen, Table Mountain, and Corrigasleggaun are very nice indeed. While not quite a circuit, Kirikee and Carriglineen can be done together in under two hours; perfect for a quick summer's evening trot. Linkback:

wicklore on Carriglineen Mountain, 2008
by wicklore  14 Jul 2008
When you cross the road from Shay Elliot Carpark and head through the gate and up the track you come to a crossroads of tracks. Left leads off to Kirikee. The right track leads in about 15 minutes to the summit of Carriglineen. The views are inferior to those from Kirikee in my opinion. However it is possible to watch the Military Road below which entertained me for some reason. I enjoyed picking out the Wicklow Way route on Mullacor and also where it heads towards Slieve Maan.

padodes on Carriglineen Mountain, 2008
by padodes  23 Mar 2008
This, I think, is the first photo of Carriglineen on MountainViews. It was taken from the top of Fananierin, looking northwards across the Avonbeg River valley. It shows this small mountain from its most attractive side (Drumgoff nestling at its foot to the left), with its southern flank clearly bearing the marks of its glaciated past, when the ice issuing from Glenmalure ground its way eastwards. From a walker's perspective, it's a rather disappointing mountain, however. Surrounded on three sides by a combination of roads, forest, farmland and human habitation, it cannot easily be included in any meaningful circuit, although David Herman, in his walk guide 'East and South', does manage to link it up with Mullacor. The simplest and least adventurous approach is from the north side, starting close to the Shay Elliot Monument (T 130 921 C). Heading south on a track between Carriglineen and Kirikee Mountain, after about 500 metres a trodden path appears to the right and takes one over gently rising ground to the top of Carriglineen.
