Lugnaquilla or Lugnaquillia, historically called Lugnaculliagh (from Irish: Log na Coille, meaning "hollow of the wood") is a 925-metre (3,035 ft) mountain in County Wicklow, Ireland. It is the highest peak of the Wicklow Mountains range, the highest in the province of Leinster, and the 13th highest peak in Ireland and affectionately known as "Lug". Informally referred to as one of the Irish Munros, it is classed as a Furth by the Scottish Mountaineering Club.
Its proximity to Dublin ensures that Lugnaquilla is a frequently climbed mountain. The three popular approaches are from the Glen of Imaal, Glenmalure and Aghavannagh with the shortest direct route from the Glen of Imaal via Camara Hill that skirts the military artillery range. Lugnaquilla is a bulky mountain, with a large plateau-type summit, bounded on two sides by steep glacial corries called "North Prison" and "South Prison".
