Although I had been to the spa here before this was my first time staying at the hotel. The staff at the reception were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and the bed was really comfortable. Well worth having a walk around the grounds as there's lots of interesting sculptures and some lovely plants. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of options to suit every taste. I can recommend the freshly baked scones!! Although it is quite expensive to stay here it's definitely worth the money and you get what you pay for. I will certainly be back!

Absolutely delightful. Beautiful courtyard room with a lovely sitting area and large television. Staff very helpful when checking in and had a beautiful meal in restaurant. Breakfast very filling with omelettes and eggs cooked on demand! Lovely gardens and walks. An ideal place to get away from it all.

Have visited the hotel several times over the years, just getting the chance to write a review now. The hotel is stunning, flawless to the point of looking like a brand new build. Its a beautiful getaway locked away from the outside world. I would highly recommend the dog friendly courtyard rooms as they offer more space.

Jeroen, Sinead and the team at Lough Eske Castle gave us a five star, home from home, experience which made every single member of our group feel special and individual, they showed us what true service excellence could be. My team will remember it and talk about it for many years to come. I would strongly recommend Lough Eske Castle as a great venue!
