Loughanure village is situated on the N56, five miles east of Dungloe and five miles west of Gweedore, and is part of the Parish of Annagry. It has a population of 400. It is a Gaeltacht (Irish speaking area) and has an Irish College, Coláiste Mhuire, founded in 1945, which caters for almost a thousand students each year in Irish language classes at Easter, June, July and August.

There is a Lounge/Bar and Restaurant, Casadh an tSúgáin, at the crossroads. There is a supermarket, petrol station and restaurant opposite the ‘Tech’.

The Lake from where the village got its name, (The Lake of the Yew Tree or Loch an Iúir as Gaeilge) attracts many visitors each year to fish for brown trout, sea trout and salmon. Boats are available for hire from the local angling club.

A four teacher National School caters for over seventy children and there is also a play school for infants.

Tá Loch an Iúir suite ar an N56 idir An Clochan Liath agus Gaoth Dobhair agus tá sé mar pháirt de Pharóiste Anagaire. Tá daonra de thart fá ceithre chéad ina gcónaí ann. Ceantair Gaeltachta atá ann agus tá coláiste samhraidh, Coláiste Mhuire, a bunaíodh in 1945, ag rachtaíl ranganna Gaeilge ag an Cáisc, agus i Mí Meithimh, Iúil, agus Lúnasa. Tig beagnach míle dalta ar na cúrsaí seo gach bliain.

Fuair an baile a ainm ón crann Úir atá ag fás ar an Oileán Úir ar an loch a mheallann mórán turasóirí na háite gach bliain ag iascaireacht bric donn, bric geala agus bradán. Tá bádaí le fáil ar chíos réasúnta on Choiste Iascaireachta.

Tá scoil ceithre oide ag freastal ar trí scor go leith páistí agus tá Naíonra ann chomh maith.
