ABOUT

Lough Mardal Lodge is lakeside glamping lodge and is also our little family homestead.

 

Having lived in the east coast of Ireland we did the opposite to what most sensible couples do when they are expecting a baby. We packed in our long-term, well-paid stable jobs and moved west to fullfill a pipedream of living a simpler, slower life, raising our young twin girls in the countryside, somewhere beautiful, growing our own vegetables and keeping a few animals...and somehow make a living.
 
We settled in Lough Mardal in Donegal. A 90-acre site of wild, unspoiled natural beauty - we fell in love instantly. Setting up a small glamping lodge here became the working plan. Located on the Wild Atlantic Way coastline, accessibly remote, with two lakes and stunning landscape - we knew anyone who visited wouldn't be able to help falling in love with it like we did.

We put most of our possessions in storage and moved here in 2015, moving into a yurt - with no running water or electricity - with our 6-month old twins. We set to work on a vegetable

garden, compost loos, built a chicken tractor and bought a few chickens, in time upgraded our residence to a wooden cabin (such luxury) and got hooked up to electricity and then running water (wow!), accumulated a dog and 6 donkeys, restored a ruined stone cottage, planted two woodlands and did a lot of land-prepping...and then got down to the business of building our eco glamping business.

Building is now nearing completion. We have enjoyed the privilege of living the 'good life' here for the last few years in our private slice of Donegal heaven - getting back to nature, disconnecting from the white noise of the modern world and re-appreciating the simple things in life.

We now look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you and offering you a chance to do the same.
