Lough Cuim, Glanteerasig Forest Park
Even if you never swim here a visit to this out of the way lake is well worth the effort. Located in a Coillte run forest park, Lough Cuim has a fabulous board walk running through its trees and along its shore. With seats dotted along the way this is a lovely place to visit for a walk.
Like many lakes the water here is dark and fresh. Where we got in there were submerged rocks and branches. So pick your spot, swim slowly and BE CAREFUL.
You will definitely enjoy a visit here and it’s a good spot on a nice day for a family outing.
From Tralee take the N86 toward Dingle and then the R560 toward Castlegregory. About 4 kilometres before Castlegregory watch out for a left turn signposted for the forest park. Keep going on this road until you arrive at the park entrance. When you get there you have to drive for a further 3 kilometres through the park until you arrive at the lake.
