Welcome to Dunlewey Centre (Ionad Cois Locha)

Dún Lúiche is a small rural community in the Donegal Gaeltacht, lies in unique scenery at the foot of Mount Errigal, the highest mountain in the County. Ionad Cois Locha is situated on the shores of Dunlewey Lough in the shadow of the haunting and mysterious Poison Glen.

You can take a step back in time and visit the homestead of the world renowned weaver Manus Ferry and enjoy stories of times gone by from our experienced tour guides or take a trip out on the Dunlewey Lough on our tour of the lake where you will pass the Guinness estate (keep an eye out for the green lady who is said the haunt the house) If you prefer to stay on dry land you can take a ride on our train and for those who have plenty of energy to burn off we have an adventure play area full of swings, slides, climbing frames, zip-wires, rodeo bull, climbing walls, pedelos, kayaks, zorb-balls and bouncy castles.
