Lough Gur is a lake in County Limerick, Ireland between the towns of Herbertstown and Bruff. The lake forms a horseshoe shape at the base of Knockadoon Hill and some rugged elevated countryside. It is one of Ireland's most important archaeological sites. Humans have lived near Lough Gur since about 3000 BC and there are numerous megalithic remains there.
Grange stone circle and a dolmen are located near the lake. The remains of at least three crannogs are present, and remains of Stone Age houses have been unearthed . A number of ring forts are found in the area, with one hill fort overlooking the lake. Some are Irish national monuments.
