Duration: about 2 hours
A shortish walk around Lough Bray Lower, with great views over secluded Lough Bray lodge. A longer walk around both Lough Bray Upper and Lough Bray Lower is also possible, but I prefer the shorter walk myself.
Lough Bray Upper
Lough Bray Lodge
- The route starts at the path beside the gatehouse to Lough Bray lodge. There is a layby a hundred metres or so further along the road where its possible to park, although it can get tricky to find space in summer.

Path at start of walk
- Follow the path away from the road and you will soon see Lough Bray Lower. Follow the path around to the left and around the lough where it then climbs steeply up to Eagle Crag. There are excellent views over both loughs, and of Lough Bray lodge.
View over Lough Bray Upper from Eagle Crag
- From Eagle Crag, bear right and follow the path along the ridge around Lough Bray Lower. This returns to the road to the north of the gatehouse, from where it is a short walk back to the start of the route.
