The Lough is the name given to a suburb of Cork City, the electoral division in which it lies, the body of water that gives the area its name and home to the Roman Catholic parish of the same name. It lies on the south side of Cork City.
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 1.1 kilometers (0.68 miles approx.) with the inner border just less than 1 kilometer.
The Lough is in close proximity to a density of student accommodation surrounding the Lough, due to it being adjacent to University College Cork.
