“Great view of the lake”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We were traveling across Ireland on drive and stay in castles holiday. Lisloughrey is the lodge that once belonged to the castle so we were somewhat disappointed but this was more with our travel operator than the lodge. the lodge is nestled in the woods overlooking the lake, great view from the dinning room. Our room was upstairs which was not a problem for us and our parents fortunately were given a ground floor room to save walking the stairs. Our room was Pauillac and was good sized and comfortable. Being off season, the hotel was not busy which meant we had the run of the place and it fairly quite. had dinner one night in the bar, the food was excellent and the bartender was very attentive and pleasant. the only distracting points were the water kept running in the toilette all night and the light from the hall coming to the room (the 2nd night we turned off the lights in the entry way). Breakfast was adequate but nothing special.

We recently got married at the lodge and we had a fantastic time. The hotel is in an absolutely beautiful location and the staff were excellent through out our stay. They could not have done more to help us and look after our guests. A big thank you to Rachael, Saskia and Garry, Lisloughrey lodge is lucky to have you three. This is a unique hotel and should not be missed.

Had a fantastic night - Room was amazing - very large with lovely views and very comfortable.
Breakfast was amazing - a buffet but also order your hot breakfast to your table -omelettes, Irish fry, pancakes etc... Dinner was amazing - very very interesting menu with LOTs of surprises along the way. Have never had such an enjoyable exciting menu before with impeccable service. Would love to return in the near future and would highly recommend. Ashford castle is just around the corner - woth a walk out - but would recommend staying at Lisloughrey Lodge.

Stayed recently on a 3 day package which included a lake cruise and tickets to Kylemore Abbey.We booked a lake view suite and it was extremely comfortable with beautiful views to the lake.The staff without exception were friendly and welcoming. Our evening meal in Wildes was superb as was the service. Ashford Castle which can be reached by a gentle stroll was truly magnificent and the gardens spectacular.I can highly recommend the cruise on Lough Corrib - Patrick the skipper is obviously someone who loves his work and loves his surroundings. Equally Kylemore Abbey is a must visit - indeed the drive to it has some beautiful scenery.The village of Cong is delightful. Why then only 4 instead of 5 in the rating? Well a previous reviewer had described Lisloughrey as soulless. Whilst I would not agree I did feel the lack of visitors meant there was no real atmosphere especially in the evenings and some of the decor is ready for a facelift. It was,however,midweek and I understand the hotel closes mid week from November onwards.Would I return - absolutely. The beauty of the area and the quality of the food in Wildes will certainly bring me back

Had a lovely view from my room overlooking the lake. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. I found the place shabby (not shabby chic!) overall; the carpet was stained, there was sellotape holding the lamp together and along the corridor the paintwork was chipped. And who thought a blood red corridor with teal carpet and fringing on the windows was a good idea? I thought the decor was unsympathetic to the house or the beautiful location. My visit was short and so I only met two staff, both did what they had to do but there was no warmth, interest or friendliness. Breakfast was fine.

During a 10 day road trip through Ireland, this was one of the stops. When we arrived we asked if we could upgrade to a view room and boy what an upgrade. Views down rolling hills to the water. A balcony overlooking all of it where we enjoyed cocktails. There was a copper tub that was big enough for two! Don't miss taking a walk to Ashford Castle. They won't let you in without a reservation so make a lunch reservation and enjoy hours of wandering through beautiful gardens. Just magical! The staff and the whole expericnce was wonderful!

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a water view. If you can get the Permoral room it's worth every penny!

On arrival upgraded to room with a view of loch, which we would definitely recommend. Very cheerful and helpful staff. Excellent overall package which included their very interesting seven course tasting menu, which really enhanced our visit. Very good location for days out enjoying the Irish lochs and coastline, particularly those beautiful little sandy coves with nobody around.
