Up Camaderry from the top carpark in Glendalough and along the ridge and past Turlough Hill we stopped for a well earned break at Lough Firrib. The hail showers were following us but we had time to take in the splendid views from this beautiful isolated spot. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/3038/

In 1895 H.C.Hart said of Tonelagee ".. a round mass of moorland, has on the northern shoulder a crater-like valley, containing a tarn, Lough Ouler, and cliffs of schistose, some 400 to 500 ft. high, descending from the near the summit to the margins of the lake." This picture shows Lough Ouler where it feeds into Lough Brook on a bright day in Sept 2002. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/156/

Tonelagee in the centre with Mullaghcleevaun to the left , pic taken from Lugnaquillia in january 05 .The flat section beneath Tonelagee is a resevior on Turlough Hill almost 700m high. The E.S.B built it in the 70,s.
Water is pumped down hill at night to turbines creating electricity.Climbed Tonelagee, with friends, in July 04, from the car park at the Wicklow Gap, which is between Turlough Hill and Tonelagee.Lovely views from the top of Lough Ouler and surrounding mnts.Went from there to Stoney Top and on to Mullaghcleevaun ,then to Mullaghcleevaun East Top .There's a large upright stone with a cross etched on it on Stoney Top, could have something to do with St. Kevin.We went from east top down through the valley and made our way to Lough Ouler.There i found and held a common lizard , the only type of lizard native to Ireland .Same size as a newt , but with a snake like head and forked tongue , not very common.We climbed Tonelagee from the lake and made our way back to the car park. It was a clear day with good visibility, the walk was about 11 miles and took us 7 hours .Well worth doing on a good day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/1438/

I climbed Tonelagee for the first time last Tuesday. What a beautifull mountain with the heart shaped Lough Ouler tucked away in it's shadow! I approached from Mullaghcleevan, Barnaculllian and over Stoney Top. The ascent was gradual and pleasant. As the day was clear and bright, the view was stunning. My route of descent took me in the direction of Glenmacnass waterfall where I parked my car. To look back at the summit as a I descended offered probably the best view of the mountain. I can only imagine what it must look like covered in snow. Can't wait to climb it then! On the descent I got a bit disorientated as it's diffiuclt to pinpoint the waterfall. Just try to keep moving in line with the summit of Kanturk Mountain. All in all, a very special day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/989/

Picture: Cold view from the North East
Snowy view.
by simon3  5 Apr 2019
Just a little snow and cold made this view of Tonelagee stand out from Tonduff, some 14km NE on a cold April day.
Note to the left of Tonelagee the top of the Turlough Hill reservoir. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/33/comment/20478/
