A serene and beautiful place steeped in ancient history. The hills around the lake make it extremely beautiful. The heritage centre is well worth visiting and the children love the 'fairy' walk.

Overall it is a small area.for the summer could add kayaking or something for the lake.also a proper path to the hill which should be open to the public as a walk.

This is very much off the beaten path and definitely a hidden gem! There is magic in the air here. It was a very powerful experience.

We had never visited Lough Gur or the stone circle in all of our nine trips to Ireland. Very glad we stopped, especially on a sunny day! Typically we don't rent the self-guided tour, but this is a must! If not for the explanations along...More

A great place to wander about. The lake and surrounds are beautiful, but the high point for us was the ruins of the old Fort and 100 steps. A sign at the bottom of the steps warns: "Beware of Fairies and 100 Steps". A good...More

A must-see for every lover of human history and unspoiled nature. Lough Gur, its beauty and multiple forts, crannog and stone circle, connects us to 6,000 of guman history. Visit and wonder.

It's fantastic to get off the beaten path and enjoy the lakes of Ireland. There are many beautiful signs and significant geologic sightings in the area. Turn at Reardons off the main highway from Bruff to get to the lake and New Church.
