Wonderful Short Stay
We had a wonderful two-night stay at Lough Mardal. The property is more beautiful in-person than in the photos. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Note that it's a long walk to the bathroom from the yurt, so plan your fluid intake accordingly. I would love to visit again.
