Interiors are simply yet luxuriously furnished with crisp white bed linen, fluffed pillows and Donegal woolen blankets. A little wood-burning stove ensures it stays warm and cosy.

COVID-19 Actions

We have always strived to maintain the highest level of standards with our cleaning. Frequency of cleaning and disinfection of public high traffic areas has been increased, with particular attention to all hard touchable surfaces including door handles, chair arms, light switches, lanterns, kettle, toasters, key fobs, keypads on lockers, etc We ask all guests to wear a mask while in the kitchen. All newspapers, books and boardgames have been removed for the time-being (sorry!). All local tourism leaflets and pamphlets have also been removed but are available on request. Unnecessary and purely decorative throws and cushions are temporarily removed (a small number of necessary cushions remain), so excuse our 'streamlined' appearance! The printed Guest Information folder in each yurt is being emailed instead on the week of arrival. Hot water bottles have been removed from the yurts (you are welcome to bring your own). Tissues are provided in all the yurts and Lodge and we ask that they are disposed of in the bins provided. Hand santisers are provided in all yurts and at all entry and exit points in the Lodge.  We ask guests to adhere to the public guidelines to minimise the spread of the virus. Coughing or sneezing should be done into a tissue or arm/elbow. Please avoid hand-shaking with other guests

This yurt’s wonderful lakeside setting offers plenty of outdoor activities. On a balmy summer afternoon, guests can head down to the lake and take a refreshing swim in its tranquil water or go fishing. For a change of scenery, glampers can journey to one of the nearby beaches—a 10 min drive—and soak up some sun on the warm sand. There is also a wealth of prime surfing locations nearby and an equestrian centre off beach horse-riding.

As guests take a leisurely stroll around the property’s 90 acres of wildflower meadows and peat bogland, their stresses will simply melt away as they are serenaded by the calming buzz of wildlife all around them. Hiking and hill-walking enthusiasts will be rewarded with striking panoramic views of Donegal Bay. Cycling buffs can hire a bike and set off on a path to discover the beautiful surroundings. Additionally, it is an opportune moment to observe the local flora and fauna in their natural habitats.
