Glanmore Lake is a beautiful lake on the Beara Peninsula in Ireland. Situated in a valley with dry stone walls, the place is silent and totally wild. Many fishermen dream of casting their line there! It must be said that the lake has a charm and a bewitching beauty!
Lake Glanmore can be admired by taking the R574, and following the Healy Pass road, a mountain pass that overlooks the lake at an altitude of 334 metres. The view of the lake is one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Beara Peninsula.
The lake is deep in the valley and is several kilometres long. Surrounded by mountains and Irish moorland, the lake is very popular with fishermen, who like to tease trout, pike and gougeon. The lake is said to be rather deep, and rich in fish and other large predators.
Fishing is allowed from the shore, just like on a boat. Some fishing guides offer their boats for a daily fee…
If you don’t like fishing, a short hike along its shores is possible. Bring walking shoes, something to drink and bivouac and time to enjoy!
