The mountain is the highest peak of the Wicklow Mountains range and the highest in Ireland outside County Kerry. Informally referred to as one of the Irish Munros, it is classed as a Furth by the Scottish Mountaineering Club.
Lugnaquilla is a bulky mountain, with a large plateau-type summit, bounded on two sides by steep glacial corries called "North Prison" and "South Prison".
Access to the summit
Its proximity to Dublin ensures that Lugnaquilla is a frequently climbed mountain. The three popular approaches are from Fenton's Pub in the Glen of Imaal, Glenmalure and Aghavannagh with the shortest direct route from the Glen of Imaal via Camara Hill that skirts the military artillery range.
