Leaving Donegal Town take the N15 northwards towards Ballybofey for approximately 1.5km then take a left turn at Brown Autos (just before Clar Church). Continue on this road for 1km until you come to a crossroads. Go straight through the crossroads and continue for approximately 2km passing a small green post office box on the right. Take the next right turn and follow the sign for Ardnamona Wood. Continue for approximately 600m until you arrive at the lake. The site is the first on the right with lake shore frontage. This road then continues past Harveys Point Hotel and Lough Eske Solas Castle Hotel to return to the crossroads and the N15.
