From car park by ford in Glen Malure, along tracks into Fraughan Rock Glen, continuing up on to ridge and round to summit, descending to Clohernagh, then to Arts Lough, and followed fence line down to ford across Fraughan Rock Glen and back to startkdbennett28/07/2019
From Fenton's Bar, Glen of Imaal. Just before the gate into the firing range, keep right to go around the outside. But still, avoid firing days.Pete R24/07/2019
Solo. From road end at Baravore in Glenmalure. Up through forest on path and track to Fraughan Rock Glen. Continued on path that climbs steeply up out of the glen. Up ridge of Cinnow to Summit of Lugnaquilla. Very misty high up. Returned same way. This ascent is almost 50 years after my first ascent of Lugnaquilla and completes my second round of the Irish 3000 footers.pwbellarby20/07/2018

My last 3000 footer in Ireland! Car park at end of Glenmalur road (near ford) - track to head of valley (just south of Table Mountain) - Camenabologue - Lugnaquilla - Clohernagh - descent by east ridge to zigzags alongside Carrawaystick Brook - return along road. Walked solo. Weather mostly sunny but early morning mist took some time to clear and partly obscured views on Camenabologue and Lugnaquilla summits. Windy. Lugnaquilla is a sprawling and complex mountain with many ridges and corries. Feels very remote - a reasonable path though from Lugnaquilla back to the valley over Clohernagh. Excellent views when I got them! Take care not to drift into Glen lmaal artillery range! Time 6 hours.jamessteel10009/08/2017

My last Irish 'Munro', happily done of the first day of my stayin Glemalure. Up via Fraughan Rock Glen- good valley scenery. I took a poor line for the final ascent onto the plateau, it went ok but very steep, 1/2 km either side would have been better. Good views, little sunshine, and a nice descent, keeping high for a while- over Clohernaugh and via Art's Lough.pwheeler28/05/2011
