Longitude: -6.283449, Latitude: 53.105111 , Easting: 315013, Northing: 207403 Prominence: 110m,  Isolation: 2.1km
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 300th highest place in Ireland.

Cliffs plunge to a brooding lake
by wicklore  23 Jul 2014
I was surprised to discover that this particular wide view of Luggala (Fancy Mountain) taken from the north has not been added here before. It includes the famous “Guinness Lake” (Lough Tay) which resembles a dark pint with a creamy head to some. The photo was taken from the R759 road that links the Sally Gap and the R755 road to Roundwood and Glendalough. Several small gravel car parks are carved out along this sometimes narrow and winding road. The feeling of a sheer drop down to the lake below just over the little stone wall adds a thrill for those motorists unfamiliar with the road.

The view is looking south over Lough Tay with Luggala and its cliffs to the right with Scarr Mountain rising to its apex in the background. At other points on this road the flat top of the artificial lake on Turlough Hill (Toomaneena), Lugnaquillia, and a host of other Wicklow hills can be seen. The carparks along this road give access to the Wicklow Way which passes through this area, as well as providing an opportunity for a loop walk taking in Luggala, Knocknacloghoge, Lough Tay and various other permutations. Beware that the residents of the valley around Lough Tay do not allow dogs off the leash and can be very strict about this. Also be aware that thieves also know it is a popular area and break-ins of cars are not unknown. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/286/comment/17565/
