We had a fantastic wedding at the Lough Eske Castle. From the first time we visited the castle we dreamt of getting married there, the location and character of the hotel were just perfect for our wedding. We cannot thank the staff enough, we have been to venues where hosting one wedding is difficult never mind two on the same day! From their professionalism to how accommodating and attentive they were enabled us to relax and enjoy the day which disappeared so quickly. The food was simply superb and our guests thoroughly enjoyed every meal from the buffet the night before, the lunch on the day itself, the evening meal to the evening buffet. The room created for both weddings was exactly how we pictured it – it was simply stunning and we have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests. Thank you to Mairead and the rest of the staff for making our wedding day a truly memorable day....our own little fairytale!

We can only give this hotel 5 stars for the most wonderful wedding experience. When they tell you not to worry and that they will take care of the detail...believe me, they really mean it. Here's a few reasons why it was so good: 1) the venue - it's a castle! What's not to love?! 2) the staff - they're so helpful and friendly, not at all stuffy so they make you feel right at home while also completely taking care of you. 3) the food - exceptional menu choices and delivered impeccably. 4) the 'restaurant experience' during the meal - don't you hate it when you're at a wedding and you're only getting main course while the people on the other side of the room are on desert?! Well, not at Lough Eske! There's something very special about everyone being served at the same time. 5) Flexibility - Stephen was great for not being a stickler for the rules (within reason). Little things like letting us mix and match some of the menu choices really made it for us. Also if you're worried about the room being too big or too small...don't! We booked it thinking our numbers would be bigger and then i worried a little about only having half the room or it feeling really empty. Thanks to Stephen it worked out perfectly - we had 2/3 of the room open for dinner and then in the other bit the band set up during dinner and after we opened it all up...so the the party was revealed! It meant we could have our top table by the rockery but were then able to have the bar open in the room during the dancing. 6) The rooms - I would move in tomorrow if I could!! They're just out of this world! 7) The spa and pool - lots of our friends stayed for the wknd and it was fantastic to have such great facilties on site. 8) The bar - great for a casual drink around the wedding itself and fab bar food too! We just loved everything about our time at the hotel and really enjoyed the whole experience - thanks so much to Stephen and the rest of the staff for ensuring we had the time of our lives!

"FOUND THE PERFECT PLACE AND WEDDING COORDINATOR" We got married on July 25 at Lough Eske Castle. I am from California and Kieran is from Omagh, but we met and live in London. We wanted to get married in Ireland and googled several places! After speaking with Stephen over the phone for a few minutes in December we knew we had found the perfect place and a super wedding coordinator!! He helped my mother, who lives in San Francisco, plan the whole wedding! His attitude of " anything you want" and " leave that to me" was so refreshing and he really made everything we wanted, happen! My mother and I visited Lough Eske Castle in March and when we met Stephen we knew we had made the right choice!! The only time Kieran and I could come to the tasting was during Easter weekend and Stephen made that happen!! He was constantly in touch and took care of every detail. We had several items shipped to Lough Eske and Stephen had it stored for us. He arranged with the chef to have special treats delivered to our guests on arrival. He also took care of arrangements with the spa and a fishing trip for Kieran and his groomsmen. When we arrived at Lough Eske a couple of days before the wedding, Stephen was there to greet us even though it was the last day of his vacation! He made sure we were all checked in and had everything we needed. Our guests were mostly from the US and UK and loved Lough Eske Castle. The rooms are large and beautiful and the service is fantastic! The bridal suite was fabulous and we were able to entertain our whole bridal party there! From the rooms we stayed in to the welcome buffet dinner, to the wedding ceremony and ballroom dinner, the weekend was perfect! The ceremony in the Rockery was magical and Stephen and his team produced a great setting both outdoors and indoors. Lough Eske Castle was a fairy tale weekend for us and we would love to do it all over again!! Thank you Stephen and the superb staff at Lough Eske Castle for a truly memorable wedding weekend!!!

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!
