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 755th highest place in Ireland.

Nondescript little hill.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  26 Mar 2015
For someone simply wanting to tick this top off by a quick up and down route there are many tracks onto the hill from the E off a minor road going SW from Whitney's Bridge near Kiltealy. Alternatively for a more interesting approach start at Knockymullgurry S793449 A and take a track going W and then S up to the Cooliagh Gap between Blackstairs Mt. and Carrigalachan. A track can then be taken down due E, to cross a stream at a ford, before continuing up to the unmarked grassy top of the hill. However it is most likely that walkers will approach this hill from the W as an add on to a walk over Blackstais Mt. by descending from Caher Roe's Den and then down across the grassy expanse of the Bantry Commons or from the Cooliagh Gap following a walk along the Southern Blackstairs Ridge over Bran Scultair, Carrigroe and Carrigalachan. Views W are restricted by the nearby bulk of Blackstairs Mt and the wooded Southern Blackstairs Ridge. Really only a peak baggers top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/637/comment/5396/
