Presumably the name is transferred from some nearby hollow to the mountain itself. Price has a useful note to this effect, but is unable to determine the hollow in question. There are three valleys in the vicinity: Fraughan Rock Glen to the north-east, the South Prison to the south-east and the North Prison to the north-west. The first two are both forested nowadays. The summit is marked as Percy's Table, named after a local landowner of the 18th century. Cf. Dawson's Table on Galtymore. P.W. Joyce gave the original form as Log na Coilleach, 'hollow of the (grouse) cocks'. However this seems doubtful. It does not show the urú which would be expected. Nor is the name connected with the deity Lug.   Lugnaquilla is the highest mountain in the Wicklow area and the 12th highest in Ireland. Lugnaquilla is the highest point in county Wicklow.

A big mountain with many ways up, long range views but hazards.
Short Summary created by simon3, kernowclimber, Peter Walker  14 Feb 2021
Lug as it is popularly known is Ireland's highest summit outside Kerry. The large summit cairn and trig pillar sit on a fairly flat dryish top with views better distant than near, often surrounded by people and sadly, litter. There are several ways up and some serious hazards particularly in bad weather so map, navigational gear and skill are essential.

One way is from the NE, starting at Baravore car park at around T066942 A. From Baravore there are three main ways: straight up the Fraughan Rock Glen, via Camenabologue along the Stony Road, or via Arts Lough and Cloghernagh.

Another starting point is from around S98419 92917 B reached reached on a rough road from near Fentons Pub.
Go straight up the track to Camarahill. Do not deviate because the surrounding area is regularly used as an artillery range, well marked on maps, making this route not always allowed.

Another start is from the S at Aughavannagh Bridge T056861 C, following the Ow valley to the summit with variations on the western and eastern ridges.

There are also routes via Carrawaystick Mountain and Ballineddan Mountain and some gullies.

The summit can be difficult to find in mist or whiteout conditions. Without good navigation there is a risk of descending accidentally onto any of the three severe slopes, of which two are marked on maps as the North Prison, the South Prison and the unnamed NE facing slope or into the artillery range.
