The Three Lakes :
Lough Leane is the largest and northernmost of the three lakes, approximately 19 square kilometres (4,700 acres) in size. It is also the largest body of fresh water in the region.The River Laune drains Lough Leane to the north-west towards Killorglin and into Dingle Bay.
Leane is dotted with small forested islands, including Innishfallen Island, which holds the remains of the ruined Innisfallen Abbey. On the eastern edge of the lake, Ross Island, more properly a peninsula, was the site of some of the earliest Copper Age .Ross Castle, a 15th-century castle, sits on the eastern shore of the lake.
Also known as Middle Lake or Torc Lake, Muckross is just south of Lough Leane. The two are separated by a small peninsula, crossed by a stone arched bridge called Brickeen Bridge. It is Ireland’s deepest lake, reaching to 75 metres in parts. A paved hiking trail of approximately 10 km circles the lake.
The Upper Lake is the smallest of the three lakes and the most southern .It is separated from the other two lakes by a winding channel 4 km long.
