Arderin is located in Ireland
Arderin (Irish: Ard √Čireann, meaning "Ireland's Height") is a mountain on the border between counties Laois and Offaly in Ireland. With a height of 527 metres (1,729 ft) it is the highest point in the Slieve Bloom Mountains and the 399th highest summit in Ireland. Uniquely it is the highest point in County Laois and County Offaly.

An Arderin is also a descriptive word for a specific category of Irish mountains in the series of lists maintained by Mountainviews.ie; those over 500m with a prominence of at least 30m. This list, along with other complementary ones, has been published in book form by Collins Press. Mountainviews.ie classifies a mountain as being above 500m, but also maintains a number of lists of hills below this threshold.
