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.

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
