Fabulous swim. Lovely pleasant clean and mild water. Safe swim. Calm water. Salt water lake makes for unique experience not to miss. Great friendly atmosphere among swimmers, created by local participants.

The most amazing and magical experience here on our stand up paddle boards. Highlight of our trip to west Cork. Met a super friendly local who explained when we arrived back for a night time paddle how to see the bioluminescence in the lake. Earlier that day, the sun shone, the lake sparkled and it felt like we were in paradise. Unforgettable.

Lough Hyne is a beautiful place.lying down a winding road between Baltimore and Skibbereen.
It has crystal clear waters to swim in. It is a tidal lake fed by seawater through a narrow channel. It's surrounded by woodland giving it a very secluded feel.
A small car park, actually a few of them, allow access and there's a small pier/promenade. Other than that there are no facilities, which for me adds to the charm.

Just a beautiful peaceful place. Great place for swimming and kayaking, lovely walk around the lake or 8 and 1/2km Road walk.

Took a run out to the Lough as part of sightseeing day out. Beautiful day, so shouldnt have been too surprised that this was a popular spot. People were swimming, children were paddling and there were some body boarders. Nice buzz. Belive there are nearby walks as well but didnt have time to explore further. Bring a picnic and enjoy.

We kayaked at night with Atlantic sea kayacking to see the bioluminescence. Incredibly beautiful in the moonlight. The history of the lake is astounding and there is gorgeous views from the nearby summit post a 2k hike.

The walk up Knockomagh is well worth it so as to see the amazing views of Lough Hyne. Wear good walking shoes!

This is a must, such a dream to find. Took a daily trip to walk in the forest to enjoy the views and tranquility. My swims were so good, just as well I had my bicycle to get there, it can be difficult to get parking.

Beautiful place to visit and even better when its sunny for some snorkelling to look at the under water life. Beautiful part of Skib. Woupd recommend it to anyone for a walk around, a picnic or a quick dip. There is also an option for a hike right next to the lake with amazing views.
