While Finn Lough is open all year round, the demand is relatively high, especially for the bubble domes.

The beauty and serenity that comes with staying in a bubble dome are not dependent on the weather or time of year. The bubble domes come with underfloor heating, so it doesn’t get cold even in the depths of winter.

As such, we suggest that whenever you are available for a bucket list experience and Finn Lough have availability, that you jump at the opportunity. The facilities and staff at Finn Lough make for an incredible once in a lifetime experience no matter the time of year.

The Finn Lough bubble domes are a sight to behold. Situated in a private forest, these secluded bubbles are genuinely breathtaking.

With 180° transparent walls, you get spectacular views of the forest, night sky, and, if you are lucky, views of Lough Erne. While the beds are incredibly comfortable, we suggest making a point of staying up for at least a little while to do some stargazing.

To continue the luxurious experience, we suggest booking in for the Elements Spa Trail. This two-hour self-guided experience takes you on a relaxing journey through a series of cabins dotted about the forest. Not only are you treated to five sensory areas, but you are also immersed in the beautiful Fermanagh woodland.

Snuggle up and enjoy the views of the setting sun as you sit on the edge of Lough Erne. You will be treated to a private firepit and delicious drinks and nibbles. Wrap up with a blanket and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Each bubble dome has facilities added with comfort and luxury in mind. There is a four-poster bed with a heated mattress, a Nespresso machine, radio, and torch in each of the seven bubble domes. The bathroom is connected to the main bubble, and there are even fluffy bathrobes and slippers.

There are two types of bubble domes on offer here in Finn Lough – the forest bubble dome and the premium bubble dome.

While the forest bubble dome comes with a powerful shower, the premium bubble dome has a free-standing bath. We suggest watching the sunrise as you enjoy this deep and luxurious bath.

Each bubble dome has its own private locked gate so you can relax knowing you and your belonging are safe and secure. Plus, no one can see inside your bubble dome as all the bubble domes are separated from one another. 

There is no Wi-Fi in the bubble domes, making this experience perfect for those wishing to disconnect from their busy everyday lives. Trust us; you won’t miss Wi-Fi because you will get so wrapped up in the magic of it all.
