Mullaghcleevaun is believed to have been named after the rounded depression near the summit, which has a small lake (Lough Cleevaun) inside it. Mullaghcleevaun sits roughly in the middle of the Wicklow Mountains and 3 km west of the Military Road. The massif also includes the summit of Mullaghcleevaun East Top (795 m).
Access to the summit
The most common ascent of the mountain is made via Black Hill from the carpark 3 km uphill from the small hillside town of Lacken. The hills of Wales can be seen on a clear day from the triangulation pillar on the summit.
