Camenabologue (Irish: Céim na mBulóg, meaning step or pass of the bullocks) at 758 metres (2,487 ft), is the 55th–highest peak in Ireland on the Arderin scale, and the 71st–highest peak on the Vandeleur-Lynam scale. Camenabologue is situated in the southern section of the Wicklow Mountains, and has a subsidiary summit, Camenabologue SE Top 663 metres (2,175 ft). Camenabologue forms a horseshoe on a "boggy" massif, at the head of Glenmalure, with its neighbours, that include Table Mountain 702 metres (2,303 ft), and Conavalla 734 metres (2,408 ft). Camenabologue also sits on the main "central spine" of the Wicklow mountains and links to the larger massif of Lugnaquillia 925 metres (3,035 ft), which lies at the southern terminus of the whole range.
Camenabologue's prominence of 133 metres (436 ft) does not qualify it as a Marilyn, but it does rank it as the 31st-highest mountain in Ireland on the MountainViews Online Database, 100 Highest Irish Mountains, where the minimum prominence threshold is 100 metres.
