Lough Gur is a spectacular place any time of year. Based on visitor reviews and experiences we recommend the following:

  1. Wear weatherproof clothing and sensible footwear. Although there is an option to stay indoors at the Visitor Centre a walk in all weathers with the right outdoor clothing is divine in Lough Gur.
  2. Take time to visit nearby attractions such as Lough Gur Pottery, Rockbarton Garden Centre, Bruff town, Old Irish Ways Museum and the many wonderful attractions located throughout the Ballyhoura region.
  3. Highlights when visiting Lough Gur include The Great Grange Stone Circle, Teampall Nua, Lough Gur Lake Front and a visit to the Lough Gur Kiosk.
  4. Lough Gur Visitor Centre on the hill side offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Guides at the Centre offer guided tours of the exhibition area. There is also a retail area on site.
