The Lough

The Lough is a suburb of Cork City on the southside of the city. It takes its name from the lake of the same name in the area. The Lough is a shallow, freshwater lake with an average depth of one metre and a total area of 4 hectares. It is an important wildfowl preserve, particularly for swans, and has been a protected area since 1881. The Lough is also popular for coarse angling and is home to fish species such as carp, eel, tench, rudd and perch. The outer border of The Lough is 1.1km, with the inner border just less than 1km. The Lough is in close proximity to a density of student accommodation surrounding the Lough, due to it being adjacent to University College Cork. Cork City is to its north with Togher to its south and Glasheen to its west. There is a range of pubs and shops in the area.
