Lough Tay, roundwood

Welcome to the Guinness Lake!

Lough Tay is, along with Glendalough, one of the most photographed location in Wicklow.  The stunning scenery of the Lake surrounded by the mountains makes it one of the most iconic location in Ireland.

Lough Tay is fed by the Cloghoge River and then drains into Lough Dan, located to the south.  The beach on the northern side is bright white sand.  It was imported by the Guinness family who’s estate runs through part of the Lough Tay area.  The shape of the lake with the with the white sand at the top makes it look like a Pint of Guinness!

The best viewing point to see Lough Tay is along the Military Road above, at the junction with the Wicklow Way.  From there, enjoy the stunning views over the Wicklow Mountains.

NOTE:  Lough Tay itself is on private property and cannot be visited without permission
