Yew Tree Apartment - Loughanure


Pets AllowedCot & Highchair

This lovely 'studio' apartment is located above the garage of the main residence. It is a compact, yet spacious open plan area, comfortably and   luxuriously appointed, with a large open plan living space and a separate bedroom and shower room.

The main space is illuminated by an east facing skylight, and a  large, south facing window, presenting lovely panoramic views over Loughanure and surroundings. It contains a well designed, fitted kitchen and dining area, in the centre of the room; with the lounge area to the front, near the main window, allowing one to relax, while enjoying the view, or watching TV.

While the apartment is ideally suited for two people, there are 2 fold-up beds and the large sofa, allowing up to 5 to sleep if required.
A larger party of people wishing to stay in Loughanure should consider "Yew Tree Cottage"; next door, and also on this web site. (The cottage has 3 bedrooms to sleep 6.)

The apartment is situated just on the edge of the village of Loughanure, and within 500 meters from the lake shore; the local restaurant, pubs & shops are all within walking distance.

Fishing

The beautiful lake is well stocked with salmon, brown trout and rainbow trout, and has been famous as an angling haven for many years. The village angling club is well established, and runs regular fishing competitions throughout the season. Indeed, the whole area, which is known as "The Rosses" has an abundance of lakes and a coastline of many bays, inlets, coves and offshore islands; - making fishing one of the most popular activities in the area. Anglers can also indulge in off-shore sea fishing, by hiring or renting a boat.

Loughanure village is situated in the Donegal Gaeltacht, between Gweedore and Dungloe, and is close to the village of Crolly and the town of Annagry. It has a renowned Irish College which runs courses during the summer months and at Easter.
The village owes its name to the native Yew Tree which grows wild on Oilean Iúir, a small island on the lake. Loch an Iúir literally means “The Lake of the Yew Tree”. The english equivalent of the village name is "Loughanure". This particular variety of Yew Tree grows wild only in Loch an Iúir.

Other Activities

Apart from angling, other activities may include: walking, rambling or hiking. Locally, a walk along the lake shore or the nearby hills would be a good start. The more adventurous and energetic might consider climbing the higher peaks, among them; Mt Errigal, which presents quite a challenge; being Donegal's highest peak.

Golfers can enjoy a game at the nearby Cruit Island course, or at Portnoo, a bit further away.

Visitors from Dublin or Glasgow will be pleased to know that there are regular flights to and from Donegal Airport to these cities, and the airport is about 15 minutes away, with car hire facilities available.

We are sure that Yew Tree apartment offers excellent value accommodation, right in the heart of the Gaeltacht, and that you will be delighted with your choice.

What they say

I travel a lot so I'm always looking for interesting places to stay - anything to avoid another carbon copy hotel - and this has got to be one of the best local travel sites I've seen. Plenty of detail, tons of photos, excellent location info and clear pricing - everything I need to make an informed call. Great job and I'll be recommending the site to anyone else I know who's travelling in Donegal.
