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