Welcome to the Geodome

You know what they say about the weather in Ireland? If you don’t like it, just give it five minutes!  It’s true, the weather here can be quite unpredictable, and we’ve seen some dramatic shifts over the past year. Luckily our guests usually come prepared with sunblock and raincoats!

Gardening has become a race against the elements, with quick dashes to weed between showers or struggling to find the right time to plant new seedlings when the sun is splitting the sky.

After our tomatoes failed spectacularly last summer, we invested in a polytunnel, and while we had a bumper crop of carrots and potatoes, it’s always a mix of successes and setbacks. This year, our radishes are massive, and green salads have become a staple at practically every meal. The potatoes are looking good and the tomatoes are romping away in the polytunnel. Oh, and does anyone want a few courgettes?

At Rossclare Lodge, we’re always looking for ways to enhance our guests’ experience. So many of our guests comment on how beautiful the front garden is, full of flowers, and this is something we want you to enjoy, whatever the weather. That’s where our Geodome comes in! This unique structure, made with hexagonal polycarbonate panels, offers a 360-degree view of the garden. It took an entire day to put it together and now it’s the perfect spot to watch the sunset or stargaze in comfort.

Picture yourself relaxing on the cosy sofa, gazing up at the twinkling constellations through the dome’s roof. Located in a dark skies area, far from the light pollution of Enniskillen, our dome offers great stargazing opportunities. And on cloudy nights our solar powered twinkly lights add a romantic touch to the evening.

The Geodome comfortably seats six and includes a low table, making it ideal for our sharing platters in the evenings or afternoon teas. Since completing it a month ago, our guests have enjoyed quiet evenings with their byo wine, or tea and cookies, or lively conversations with fellow visitors. The dome’s excellent soundproofing ensures no disturbance to the main house.

You can now book the Geodome for afternoon teas or light suppers in two-hour blocks. When reserving your room, be sure to mention your interest in using the dome.

We’re confident you’ll love the Geodome as much as we do. Enjoy the stunning garden views, watch Basil the dog having zoomies through the flower beds, or laugh at the chickens’ antics. And don’t worry about the rain—we’ve got a big umbrella in the hall, so we’ve got you covered as you make your way to the dome in a shower!

Join us at Rossclare Lodge and make the most of your stay with our fantastic Geodome experience!
