Located near Virginia County Cavan, I stumbled across this lake very much by accident. From one of the brochures I found this information:
Mullach Lake was formed by huge glaciers during the last ice age as was much of the landscape in this part of County Cavan. The lake is now home to a wide range of waterbirds including winter visitors from as far away as Iceland and Siberia making this an ideal spot to stop for a picnic.
I’m inclined to agree with whoever wrote it….
From what I can remember from reading the signage by the lake Mullach Lough is about 35 hectares in area with an average of 2.3 metres depth and a maximum of 8 metres.
More than that I could have sat here all day long. So very well maintained and really I am just surprised it is or has not been better noted by the tourism boards as being such a great asset. That said I wasn’t complaining.
It’s very evident that work has been done here in keeping the surrounds updated and the new walkway an addition that doesn’t look so out of place. The plant life here is stunning and the information given on the bird life would make me want to revisit if nothing else just to see how it would look at the varying times.
I did do the picnic option and spent about 3 hours here.
