An Eco Building
Merged with the Landscape

THE LODGE - Communal Building

Eco Lodge, Events Venue, Donegal, Ireland

Bathed in Light

Our communal building is the social hub with all the facilities for glamping guests. It has a very large fully equipped self-catering kitchen, dining area, toilets and hot wet room showers. Its main feature however is the striking Reciprocal Room, a lounge area bathed in light with spiralling beams overhead and offers sweeping views of lake, forestry and mountains. Go for a bracing hike up the hill or a dip in the lake, then come back and sink into the leather sofas in front of the huge fireplace and relax with a coffee and read a book. Or pick a window seat and gaze out at the panormic views and see if you can spot the deer.

A Building Made of Straw

The Lodge building is a natural building - it was designed and built to be as eco as possible using locally sourced roundwood timber, strawbales and lime for the external walls and cob (earth, sand and straw) for the internal walls. On top there is green roof alive with the grasses and wildflowers excavated from the earth around it, blending the building with the landscape from which it came.

Disconnect, Unwind & Slow Down

Accommodation is off-grid and the Lodge is low-tech. There are no T.V.'s and warning; the Reciprocal Room is a gadget-free zone. (You'll thank us later.) Feel your shoulders drop and and your racing mind slow down.


There are plenty of books, boardgames and cards for playing, not to mention the old fashioned art of conversation! For the twitchy there is a designated area in the Lobby where guests are welcome to use their mobile devices (as well as in their accommodation of course).

A Unique Events Venue

With on-site luxury glamping accommodation, 90 acres of privacy and stunning lake views the Lodge is perfect for most small-medium sized events; weddings, yoga weekends, family celebrations, corporate events and residential team-building.  With a seated dining capacity for 75 there is also plenty of space for additional marquees and camping.
