Finn Lough

Top choice resort in Boa Island

On the mainland shore overlooking Boa Island is this wonderful complex with a range of luxurious accommodation and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The most special rooms here are the forest bubble domes: transparent globes with uninterrupted views of the night sky, attached bathrooms and four-poster beds, hidden among the trees; the largest have free-standing baths. Book well ahead.

There are also three rooms in the main house, and self-catering cottages sleeping six people, some with great water views. The resort's superb restaurant serves fresh, locally sourced fare including produce grown in the kitchen garden or foraged from the forest. Activities at the lush complex include water sports, kayaking, tennis and cycling, and a range of treatments at the spa.
