The symbolism of reciprocity, interdependence and interconnectedness runs through the essence and soul of the building; from the unique 'reciprocal roof' design where one beam supports the weight of the one above it,  to the support of all the many volunteers whose hands molded and pressed the mud into the walls, to all the locally sourced materials (the building literally came from the land around it), to the building now providing a beautiful space for bringing people together, to connect. 

Located 15 minutes from Donegal Town in South Donegal on the Wild Atlantic Way, the site is spread across 90 acres with two lakes - Lough Acully and the larger Lough Mardal - and stunning panoramic views. The setting is unspoilt and beautiful.

Lough Mardal can be found on Google Maps under 'Lough Mardal Lodge'. It is located just off the N15 road between Donegal Town and Ballyshannon. It is 15 minutes from Bundoran, 40 minutes from Sligo and under 3 hours from Dublin. Directions.
