A moderate to strenuous 6 hour loop walk to the summit of Lugnaquilla Mountain at 925m with stunning views. It is the 13th highest mountain in Ireland and is very accessible from Dublin with 3 popular routes to the summit from Glenmalure (this route), Aghavannagh and the Glen of Imaa (shortest route). Lugnaquilla is flanked on two sides by steep glacial corries called "North Prison" and "South Prison". If your lucky, you can see accross the Irish Sea to the hills of the Llŷn Peninsula and mountains of Snowdonia in Wales and south west to the mountains of Munster.
