Luggala Mountain Log an Lá A name in Irish

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 302nd highest place in Ireland.

emily on Luggala, 2003

On a recent walk to Luggala, May 03 we chose a route up the steep eastern face of the mountain. The area was not badly eroded which was good to see. However the terraine was very difficult and dangerous with deep heather and dangerous scree to pass over. A diffcult slog to the summit, I will take the normal route from now on!

A favorite of mine, Ive been up Lugala quite a few times over the last ten years. And so have many others, by the eroded trails that are ever present. However, i like it because I can bring anyone with me and they are always capable of the walk. Which is a great way to get anyone interested in walking. Parking not far from the sally gap, is an easy walk in definatly less than an hour to its peak. Then the views are just the best, especially on a clear day. In my picture you'll see my dog looking back at Gravale and further wondering if were going there next :) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/286/comment/3583/

Picture: Luggala from the south.
The more ordinary southern side.
by simon3  28 May 2013
Usually Luggala is photographed showing off its dramatic eastern aspect plunging into Lough Tay.

Here however is its southern side from Knocknaclohoge showing the quiet Cloghoge valley. Climbing to Luggala on this side is an exercise in finding your way through heather on boggy tracks.

Note the ridge leading out from the left (west) side of the mountain - this connects with the Military Road. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/286/comment/14998/

Picture: A sure way to get wet on a fine day.
My goodness my Guinness
by TommyV  1 Dec 2018
This walk takes in Luggala and Knocknacloghoge which makes for a great day of hiking. There are a few places to park near a gated entrance to the a road that leads down to the Guinness Estate at O17232 06369 A. This road can be followed to a wooden bridge where a stile at O16052 06146 B will indicate it's time to start the ascent North West to Luggala. From the summit, it's worth heading a few hundred meters North East along the cliff face to have a nosey down over the impressive Lough Tay and the private Guinness estate. Retrace your steps to the summit then drop down to the Cloghoge Brook before climing again to the summit of Knocknacloghoge. There is a step descent here down to Lough Dan, where focus is needed so try not to get distracted by the magnificent views of the lake below. From here follow a trail that leads to where the Cloghoge river flows into Lough Dan. Once here, the road leads back to the wooden bridge from earlier in the hike. However, there are a set of stepping stones that neatly cross the river and another road on the far side that also leads back to the start of the hike. The test to not get the feet wet proved too great so this is the route we took. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/286/comment/20164/
