Our 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. 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. Our newly renovated rooms are perfect for family's with up to three children, with double, single and twin rooms also available. The hotel is half an hour from Donegal Town and within easy access of Donegal, Sligo, Derry and Belfast airports. The beautiful towns of Ardara and Dungloe are also a short picturesque drive away.
