  • A bona fide eco venue - the Lodge is built from all-natural materials; strawbale exterior walls and mud interior walls along with a grass roof. Check out the rest of our Sustainability initiatives.

  • Accessibly remote; distant enough to feel like an escape from it all, yet easy to reach, being in South Donegal, just 5 minutes off the N15. 40 minutes from Sligo, 2hr15mins from Belfast,  3 hours from Galway & Dublin

  • Family-run ensuring personal oversight and attention to detail - we are here to assist in whatever way we can in the lead up and at the event.

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 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.
