A visit to Conavalla is normally plagued by the need to traverse sucking bog. But not so in winter when the bog is frozen. This walk starts at the Wicklow Gap and follows the ESB road to Turlough Hill and the summit of Tomaneena. The route then heads west to Lough Firrib and turns SSW to Conavalla. In winter with frozen bog and a slight cover of snow the walk up and back took 4 hours. In summer I'm sure it would take longer as the bog tries to ensnare you.
