About this place

This accessibly remote yurt rental is located near Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal, Ireland and is ideal for guests to enjoy a romantic lakeside getaway. The yurt is luxuriously furnished with super-king size bed, crisp linens and Donegal woollen blankets. Towels are also provided by the lovely host.

While a toasty wood-burning stove keeps glampers warm at night, they can lie back and watch the stars through the skylight dome. Moreover, guests will adore the large windows that let in plenty of natural light, offering striking views of the sun setting over lake and forest outside. Glampers can escape to the pages of a novel on the sofa or armchair after a rewarding day of outdoor exploration.

Outside, sweeping views of the tranquil countryside await guests with the serene views of Lough Mardal, forestry and mountains in the distance. Guests who reside here will have access to the Lodge, a communal amenity building, which offers a fully-fitted kitchen, hot showers, and toilets. Also accessible is the 'Reciprocal Room' a beautiful central space with panoramic views of lake, forest and mountains. A beautiful building of unique eco-design made with straw walls and a grass roof.

With all of the wonderful facilities offered, guests will have everything they need and more to have a comfortable stay. The yurt features a wooden deck where guests will love to catch some sun and survey the stunning natural surrounding beauty.

After the sun sets, glampers can gather around a toasty fire pit and roast marshmallows as they gaze at the twinkling stars above. The yurt has on-site parking.

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
