Luggala Mountain Log an Lá A name in Irish
also Fancy an extra name in English
(Ir. Log an Lá [logainm.ie], 'hollow of the [obscure element]') Wicklow County, in Arderin List, Granite with microcline phenocrysts Bedrock

Longitude: -6.283449, Latitude: 53.105111 , Easting: 315013, Northing: 207403 Prominence: 110m,   Isolation: 2km
ITM: 714938 707437,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Lugala, 10 char: Luggala
Bedrock type: Granite with microcline phenocrysts, (Type 2p microcline porphyritic)

Also known as Fancy, from Ir. Fuinnse [PNCW], 'ash-tree', and Cloghoge. Price's interpretation of this name as Log an Lágh, 'hollow of the hill', is doubtful. There is no evidence in dictionaries for the existence of a word lágh with this meaning. The second element does not appear to be lá, 'day', either.   Luggala is the 301st highest summit in Ireland.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Luggala in area Dublin/Wicklow, Ireland
Picture: The delight of many a tourist
Dramatic cliffs, dramatic views
Short Summary created by simon3, wicklore,  5 Apr 2013
Luggala is one of the more well known mountains in Wicklow. This is because it has dramatic cliffs plunging to Lough Tay, visible from the R759 which connects east and west Wicklow via the sally Gap. Luggala, its cliffs and Lough Tay probably feature in more tourist photos than most other views in Ireland.

There are a number of parking spots along the R759 such as at O17041 07245 A and O16707 07959 B. Head NW along the road and strike out across the bog in the region of O14077 10225 C for a gradual climb across bog.

Another approach, from the west, would be to park at O13669 08779 D and head 1.5kms SE across bog to the summit. Cars at this parking spot may be more vulnerable to break in – the other parking spots above Lough Tay usually have more tourists around and may be less vulnerable.

To complete the walk it’s possible to descend to the Cloghoge River valley (e.g O15944 06001 E). A road leads out of the valley to the ‘Pier Gates’ which are near the various parking spots above Lough Tay. There is public access to this valley, although locals will severely challenge any owners of loose dogs.

The summit area of Luggala has been quite eroded due to its popularity. It has great views of surrounding hills and mountains such as Djouce, Ballinafunshoge Hill, Knocknacloghoge and Loughs Tay & Dan. Lough Tay resembles a pint of Guinness with its white beach and dark brooding waters. It would be easy to drop off the sharp cliffs just metres from the summit. Take care.
