About Lake House Hotel

Our secluded boutique hotel is set on the shore of Lake Clooney, boasting breathtaking scenery of the two-mile stretch of Narin’s Blue Flag beach and Portnoo Golf Course on the Wild Atlantic Way. The surrounding area is abundant with historical points of interest and a broad range of activities.

The original house has a long and poignant history, being used as a soup kitchen in 1846 during the days of the Irish Famine, where an original soup kettle is displayed in the grounds.

The Hotel is half an hour from Donegal Town and within easy access of Donegal, Sligo, Derry and Belfast International airports. The beautiful towns of Ardara and Dungloe are also a short, picturesque drive away.

Seamlessly blending old-world charm and elegance with contemporary luxuries, The Lake House Hotel delivers impeccable service that is never compromised. A Donegal Irish welcome is ensured in warm and friendly surroundings, with open peat fires and candle-lit suppers the order of the day.
