Lough Dan (Irish: Loch Deán) is a boomerang-shaped ribbon lake near Roundwood, County Wicklow, Ireland. It is a popular area for hikers and kayakers and lies very close to the Wicklow Way.

The Inchavore river flows into Lough Dan from the west and Lough Tay feeds it via the Cloghoge river from the north. It is drained to the south by the Avonmore.

Most of the lake is surrounded by private lands, though the northwest corner is part of the Wicklow National Park.

Scouting Jamboree[edit]

In 1997, Lough Dan was the site of an Irish Scouting jamboree, Lough Dan '97, hosted by Scouting Ireland S.A.I. on their national campsite based beside the lake, and co-organised by the Federation of Irish Scouts Associations.
