Spent three nights in a garden view suite, which was exceptional, 1000 sq ft with absolutely everything you could wish for, including some great extras such as underfloor heating in the bathroom, and a gas fire in the lounge area. Everything was immaculately clean, the staff, from the cleaners, through waiting, concierges to receptionists were the most professional, courteous, and... More

A beautifully small and quaint castle that hosts this glorious hotel. The hotel is surrounded by the attractive lake, 10 minute’s drive from Donegal town and in an area of outstanding natural beauty that’s suites a fly drive holiday. Check in was very quick and whilst our porter took our bags to the room he explained everything to us. This... More

Just got back from a wonderful stay in Ireland which included Lough Eske Castle. Unfortunately the lake is not visible from the hotel, but that is the only neghative. The facilities (especially the bar and the spa) are wonderful and it is just a short hike to the lake and a short drive into Donegal Town. The room was perfect... More

The bar area is very relaxing with muted tones enhanced by the many candles.Food was a little limited but... More

My husband I really enjoyed our visit to Lough Eske. Our room was beautiful, the staff were fantastic and the food was exceptional. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay but for one exception – the spa. Two of the facilities were closed (ice shower and steam room) and the spa doesn’t open until 9am even thought we were told...

My wife and I have stayed here twice...so far. The rooms are lovely - for the most part - although on our last stay we noted our room could have done with a wee touch up, few chips out of furniture and scuff marks on the walls, etc. Apart from that have few complaints - the rooms are an excellent...
