This is a shoulder of Blackstairs Mountain lying completely in Co. Wexford. Note that there is another hill of this name NW of Mount Leinster, though it is spelt Slievebawn in English.   Slievebaun is the 749th highest place in Ireland.

Slievebaun isn't really on the way to or from anywhere useful, so I chose to take in the summit on the way back from Blackstairs Mountain itself. I started at S80200 41607 C, where you can park a couple of cars without blocking the track, and headed up to the col between Carriglachan and Caher Roe's Den. I headed for the summit of Blackstairs, taking in Slievebaun on the way back. The low rounded dome of Slievebaun suffers from its proximity to the much more dramatic Blackstairs - Bran Scultair ridge: it's just not very exciting in comparison! At least there are some nice views along the ridge and out to the coast. There's nothing of note to mark the summit; the photo shows my bag at what is probably the highest point.
