"Feel the love" at Ireland's most romantic lake

Lough Ouler, by Tonlagee, has to be Ireland's most romantic lake, with it's near perfect heart shape and dramatic surroundings. We will climb up Tonlagee (Irish Translation is "Bum to the Wind!") and then travel over the summit, passing the Trig pillar to view this wonderful lake.
Feel free to pack a ring and pop the question if you don't mind an audience! Your loved one may be wearing a woolly hat and five layers of clothing if the wind is up, but you could not be in a more dramatic location for your Valentine's Day walk.
This is a relatively short walk with moderate /steep slopes and boots are necessary.

      We meet at the terminus of the 145 which leaves from Hueston Station every ten minutes so that might be an option!

    Relatively short? Approximately how long will the walk take? Is it suitable for relative beginners?

      Relatively short and relatively sharp! We drive up to the car park near Turlough Hill and then walk up the slope to Tonlagee - about an hours walk of slope so not for total beginners but we do take pauses. Our group are moderate to good walkers but are also considerate and do wait. However, if you have not much in the way of slopes recently, this would not be the walk for you! I imagine the walk will take 2.5 hours and we might get a coffee and scone in our favourite coffee shop in Laragh and be back in Kilmac by 6ish. Hope this is of help to you. Why not come to Killruddery over the weekend and see how you get on and then you can decide if you want to give this a go?
