The Old sawmill is a recently converted 16th century sawmill set in the woodland near Lough Eske in beautiful County Donegal. The stone building is full of character and the sound of water rushing past the mill just adds to the feeling of peace and tranquility. Its a lovely warm and cosy place to relax and chill out after a long days walking on the nearby Bluestack Mountains or surfing in the nearby Atlantic Ocean. The award-winning 5 star Lough Eske hotel is a 5-minute stroll across the road if you fancy a drink in their beautiful bar or a gourmet meal in their restaurant. They also have a lovely Spa if you feel you want to spoil yourself. Harveys Point Hotel is only a 10 minute walk along the lakeside.
