Needs a visit from the hotel inspector! Grubby from front to back. Decor is at least 20 years old and needs full overhaul. Food was basic however the surroundings ruined it, ripped chairs, broken light fittings disgusting carpets. Groupon deal - 2 nights B & B plus 1 evening meal with wine and chocs. Chocs were mini pack of celebrations, wine was cheap 7.5vol undrinkable and warm, steak was ok but dirty surroundings put you off eating it. Not doing themselves any favours...attracting visitors through false advertising on web site. Had to be offered 3 separate rooms before we found one that we would consider staying in. Such a shame...great location and great pub "the Mayfly" up the street serving fabulous food! Should get together and bring more people to Kesh!

The Lough Erne Hotel began life as a Royal Irish Constabulary barrack in 1862. It was built by the governors of the Vaughan Charity who then owned the village of Kesh. The building cost £650 and the police paid £30 per year for rent. A year after the barrack was built it was burnt down in an accidental fire. Some repairs were done immediately but further work was carried out in 1921. For example stabling for horses that was provided behind the hotel in what is now the Glendurragh Suite. One of the RIC officers stationed in Kesh, Constable McCormick, was a very famous boxer. In fact he once fought the British Heavyweight Champion, Billy Wells.
