Slievethoul (or Saggart Hill) and Lugg are on the westernmost edge of the Dublin Mountains. From the summit of Slievethoul there are fine views of the plains of Kildare and the rolling mountains to the east into Wicklow. Slievethoul was formed from glacial deposits of sandstone, siltstone and shale laid down at the end of the last Ice Age.
There are loads archaeological monuments in and around Slievethoul Wood and Lugg, tombs, cairns, barrows and ring forts, well worth checking out.

10 km south west of Tallaght just off the N81 before the village of Brittas.
