About Owenea River Rest: A Family's Journey
Owenea River Rest is a family run business on Francis and Deirdre Connolly’s farm in Ardara, County Donegal. Deirdre explains how their dream became a reality. But it doesn’t stop there… big plans for the future mean you’ll want to come back time and time again.
The local area offers so much history, heritage, adventure and scenery, you’ll never fit it all in one visit.
Thus our journey finally began in October 2019 when Francis, Deirdre , Dylan and Kate came together with lots of exciting ideas and dreams of what our Glamping Site could look like. We shared so much fun and enjoyment in coming together and putting all our individual ideas and plans together and we sincerely hope we that we have somehow managed to add even a “little magic and intrigue” to our guests visiting our glamping site.
Our Dreams going forward...
- Build our very own custom built tree house which will offer even more spectacular views of the Owenea River and the rolling Bluestack Mountains
- To a feature an authentic Mongolian Yurt commonly called a Ger which is a traditional dwelling of nomadic families in Mongolia, Asia.
- A Finnish Aurora Dome. These Aurora Domes are circular in their shape, echoing the traditional design of an igloo but taking things to a whole new level which offers visitors a chance to view the spectacular outdoors from the comforts of being indoors.
