"One Wedding and a Night's Stay"
We stayed at the hotel on 1 November, having been at a wedding reception there that day. Initial impressions were very good. The approach to the castle and the first sight of the building are stunning. We arrived in a downpour, and were met by a conscientious band of male employees holding umberellas, offering to take our cases in and park the car in the car park. Very good.( In fact, before we arrived I had rung the hotel with a query and had been grateful for the courteous and helpful response from Elizabeth on Reception) Check-in was fine, and we were again offered help in taking luggage to our room. We declined, got lost, and were helped on our way by a very pleasant member of the cleaning team - we declined her offer to help carry the luggage. We had a first floor…

"Brilliant wedding"
I visited castle wake for my brother's wedding and we loved the experience, I don't have enough room to fill all in but the castle itself is stunning, the staff are amazing too. Thank you all very much.

"Wonderful Wedding Venue"
Our families gathered here for a wedding recently and the staff were marvellous and the the grounds we great.

Between showers we snuck in an outdoor wedding in the Rockery followed by a dinner in the Oak Room.

The dinner was amazing and the staff attended to us well. Such a great place for a family celebration.

Thank you Lough Eske Castle staff.

We stayed here on our UK trip celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. After a terrible battle with our GPS, we finally arrived...to an absolutely stunning sight. The staff immediately came out to deal with our luggage, check in went smoothly & our room was lovely. Food was delicious and the service above & beyond our expectations. My only regret? I couldn't stay longer.

"Very magical and romantic 25th anniversary!!"
From the moment we booked until we marched out the front doors with our suitcases in tow, this was a magical, romantic experience!! Maureen could not have been more pleasant with assisting with pre-booking dinner, afternoon tea, massages, breakfast in bed, champagne and rose petals in our room. I like to believe that we had "special" treatment because we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, but I know that's not true because everyone we saw and spoke to were so pleased with their stay no matter why they were there. They just have a way to make EVERYONE feel special. I had two extra requests from Maureen and they were to have a tour of Slieve League and to have a professional photographer come to take pictures of us in our formal attire on our anniversary. She assisted me by providing recommendations for both and we had amazing experiences with our tour and pictures!! We will treasure our photos forever!!! I can not say enough good things about this place from our room, the food, drinks, afternoon tea, the spa, the grounds around the castle, service in ALL areas...I could go on and on!!! Thank you all for a lovely anniversary!!!
