Just back from staying at Ballyare Lodge for 4 nights. We had an absolute brilliant time from the moment we arrived there the log cabin was amazing and not forgetting the hot tub which the kids really enjoyed and ourselves also. The kids really enjoyed the fishing and caught plenty of trout and they also tasted lovely. The kids are asking when they are going back and one thing for sure is we definitely going back there. Never had such a relaxing time anywhere than I did here. A special thanks to Gary and Una which nothing was a bother to them and really made are break away special.
Just back from this place today!! Omg!! What an amazing 2 days.. Could not fault it at all!! The cabin was amazing.. Comfortable, clean, warm. The hot tub was a bonus!! The lake is beautiful, sitting in the hot tub looking out at it was amazing.. Gary helped us catch some fish to cook on the bbq!! Was delish!! Gary and Una are amazing hosts! So friendly!! I really can't recommend this place enough.. If your looking for a quiet relaxing time this is the place to go!!!
We spent the weekend in this absolutely fantastic log cabin. The owners Una and Gary are two of the nicest people you will meet. Very helpful and accommodating. The cabin was spotless when we arrived and lovely and warm which was nice on a cold February evening. There was tea, coffee, fresh milk and fresh bread waiting for us on arrival. The views are fantastic over the lake with the rolling hills behind. The hot tub is amazing we spent a few hours each night in it even in February. Gary took time out of his day to show us how to fly fish an even let us borrow a rod. we caught two trout and had one for tea that evening, it was delicious. The town of Ramelton is only two minutes away by car if you need anything and Letterkenny is about ten minutes away. If you are looking for a perfect getaway in Donegal don't look anywhere else. Fishermen will also love the stocked lake.
100% will be back as soon as possible

My fiancé and I spent valentines weekend at Ballyare Lodge to do something different from the normal hotel away break as my fiancé loves fishing and it was incredible! The view from our cabin over looking the lake was breath taking in the morning! Gary and Una could not do enough for us to make sure our stay was perfect! I even tried my hand at the fishing and have found my new hobbie! I will definitely be visiting the cabins again! Not to mention it's only a 10 minute drive away from the busy town centre of letterkenny if you fancy doing a bit of shopping as well!
Beaches only a few miles away
