Lakeview Lodge - Pettigo


Traditional PropertyOpen FireLake Views

This is an old stone dwelling, originally built as a game keepers hunting lodge. It was built in the early 1800's by Lord Leslie, a landlord in the area at the time. (His main local residence, in Pettigo village; was called Palaceades.) The Leslie family holdings in the 19th century comprised 70,000 acres in counties Cavan, Donegal, Fermanagh, Meath & Tyrone!

Stone Built Cottage

The cottage is situated on a large property, in a quiet and peaceful location some 6km from Pettigo off the (R232) main road to Donegal Town. A fishing lake called Lough Namnamurrive lies about 400m south of the cottage. (see bottom picture)The cottage itself, is a solid, stone built building, and has undergone extensive renovation. There are two upstairs bedrooms, a kitchen, sitting room, and utility room: Ablutions consist of two upstairs en-suites and a downstairs toilet and basin.

The kitchen and dining area have the original flag-stone floors. Although the cottage has oil fired central heating, the fireplaces are still intact, and there is one in each room. Surrounding Area The surrounding countryside is a gentle undulating landscape of soft green hills and valleys, with numerous lakes, bog-land and forested areas.

Lough Erne

The largest lake is undoubtedly Lough Erne: A large, complex body of water, with numerous bays, islands, coves and inlets with many tributaries feeding into it. It provides freshwater angling, and a wonderful venue for all kinds of watercraft, whether sporting or recreational, rowing, sailing or motorised.Boats can be hired or rented, or you can bring your own.

Many of the islands have ruins reflecting the past; with some early Christian settlements, monasteries, abbeys & castles.Just north of Lough Erne, is the smaller Lough Derg; famous for the pilgrimage centre called "St Patrick's Purgatory". The island retreat dates back to the 5th century, in the time of St Patrick, and has attracted pilgrims ever since. (click on owners gallery at top of page for picture.)

Pettigo

The little village of Pettigo sits on the border between Donegal and Fermanagh, and is strategically situated at a crossroads between Lough Erne and Lough Derg, and between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

It has always been known for friendliness and hospitality.In Celtic times, it was the "Place of the Blacksmith", and for medieval Europe it was the gateway to the Purgatory of St. Patrick. The 17th and 18th centuries saw Pettigo become a famous marketplace and in more recent times its frontier location made it a "smugglers paradise".Pettigo provides the visitor with an excellent base for touring Counties Donegal, Fermanagh, Leitrim, Sligo, Tyrone and Derry.
