This new accommodation offering places a premium on unique and inspiring design that enhance the landscape and allow guests to experience feelings not possible at home. The new forest domes, the only structures of their kind in the UK and Ireland, lie in the heart of Muckross Woodland and feature 180 degree transparent walls and roof. The domes can be accessed by land or lake, with a short walk or drive through the meandering forest or aboard a boat or pedal Hobie via Lough Erne.
The breaking down of walls in the traditional sense allows guests to engage with and immerse themselves in nature. The vast constellations visible from this remote corner of Ireland make for a surreal experience as shooting stars blazing across your line of sight and the moon casts its milky light across the treetops. Lying beneath this sheet of stars gives a feeling of child-like wonder and is reminiscent of the youthful joy felt whilst listening to the driving rain and howling wind from the comfort and protection of one’s bed.
Through collaboration with Belleek based designer Ronan Lowery they have created luxurious interiors placing an emphasis on local design, local materials and local craftsmanship. This focus on high quality design allows guests to repose in the natural surroundings whilst still enjoying all the comforts of 5 star accommodation.
With ensuite bathroom custom built from Iroka wood and four poster bed hand crafted from local oak, every aspect of the room has a rich and authentic feel. Luxury comforts are included to offer all the elements of a premium room from Nespresso coffee machine and vintage record player to fluffy robes and slippers.
Gillian Beare, Director of Finn Lough resort commented “The driving force for this development was a desire to offer something different for the discerning traveller, something beyond four walls and a bed. We wanted an accommodation product that truly offered a sense of place, one in which guests could disconnect from the everyday noise in their lives and reconnect with the simple pleasures of nature.”
Whether you are the bride and groom looking for the perfect hideaway after your big day or the couple looking for some well earned respite, you may be a long haul traveller looking for a truly unique stay in Ireland or the UK, Finn Lough Forest Domes are perfect whatever your reason.
