This is a beautiful hike with great views of the mountains and lake. Lough Curra is a nice glacial lake with crystal clear waters. In wet weather the grass is soft and deep, so be sure to bring proper footwear.

Worth it in the end, but don't make a loop out of it. Stay on the marked (eastern) trail and make it an out-and-back. Great for pictures!

First to Review

This was our first hike when we were in Ireland. We wanted to go up to the top of Galtymore Mountain, but the lack of signs or trails put a halt to that. We soon realized that going cross country is just how you would do it. It was certainly a pleasure walking thru the grassy meadows below the mountain though. It was like walking on sponges. The grass was green and deep. So we parked a short ways up the road to this area once we got off the main road. However, the cutoff to this spot is not signed, and it took us a while to find it. We started walking up the road as it does continue past a gate that we figured we better not go through. Turns out we could have, but then the loop wouldn't have worked. So once at the very end of the dirt road, we climbed over a fence that had a set of steps and into the grassy fields. No trail. Nothing. Wide open and that was it. So we made a beeline in the general direction of the mountain. After getting to the base of it, we had second thoughts about bushwhacking up the slope of it. We did see another guy who was doing just that though, so that must be the way they do it. But we decided to just head for the lake and call it good. So after going over a few small ridges and down through some gullies, we were at Lough Curra. A nice little glacial lake with crystal clear waters. From the lake, we were able to find a fairly well used trail back to our car. This was a nice little loop and nice to be in the Irish country side where everything was green, green.
