“Great food with a Celebrity welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014


Restaurant, the food was very tasty and a good choice on the menu, however it was all enhanced by the wonderful colourful welcome we got from Noel! We missed the view as it was dark, but the situation is spectacular with the panoramic view of the lake. We will be back to see it!

The food here is excellent and the service efficient but friendly. It is worth the trip for the food alone.

“Sunday Carvery experience is a must have”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I have been to this hotel quite a few times over the years for their Sunday Carvey (a must book), the food is absolutely out of this world - everything is like buffet style from the starters (everything from deli meats, seafood, salads, bbq ribs, soups etc), to the mains (traditional carvery at very high standards) and the desserts are phenomenal!! It is slightly on the more expensive side for a sunday carvery but you do get what you pay for.
The scenery of this hotel is amazing - its situated on the beautiful Lough Eske a few miles out side donegal - I highly recommend that you go see this hotel and experience Sunday Lunch at its best!!!
