Loughanure

Loughanure is a village in the north west of Co Donegal. It is situated on the N56 road in the Gaeltacht area of The Rosses, about half way between Gweedore and Dungloe. The village owes its name to the native yew tree which grows wild on Oileán Iúir, a small island on the lake. Local amenities include a pub/restaurant, a supermarket, petrol station and restaurant. One of the area's major attractions is its lake. Loch an Iúir is the largest lake in the Rosses; it is over four kilometeres long and flows down the Crolly River into the Atlantic Ocean. Salmon, brown trout, and rainbow trout inhabit the waters. The lake is nestled among the surrounding hills. Cumann Iascaireachta Loch an Iúir hold fishing competitions on the lake annually. Nearby attractions include Blue Flag beaches, local summer festivals, surfing, and sight-seeing. There is a national school in the village as well as an Irish language college which operates for eight weeks each summer.
