We actually drove around the lake starting from the Carrig Country House hotel but it was a very scenic and relaxing drive before heading back to Dublin and definitely would recommend it. Looks nice for walking as well.

Taking this loop trail is easy to moderate and takes you to an amazing vista point where you can view Caragh Lake and the MacGillycuddy Reeks. Fantastic!

One can see Killorglin, the coast and the surrounding mountains. Worth doing but make sure it's a clear day.…

We were staying in the Carrig Country House and they kindly gave us a walking map for a 3 hour, 8 mile walk around the lake. No special gear needed it is pretty flat apart from one short section around the mountain. Great views. Worth doing.
