"Wedding and Overnight Stay" We attended a wedding here on Saturday 11th May 2019 and stayed overnight. The wedding reception was excellent and the food just beautiful. We had an enormous room for our stay and the breakfast was excellent too. Would highly recommend this lovely hotel.

"Everything you could wish for, and more" Our extended family stayed at the Castle for 5 nights for a family wedding. The event organisers @Olivia Buckley International were organising the event over four days The Castle was in tip top shape and had recently been refurbished with new carpets fitted in all the bedrooms. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and the service was excellent. There were around 140 people attending functions on each of the days and the management and staff, including Simon and Maureen the Wedding Event organisers at the Castle and Donal the Manager were always nearby to help with any queries we had. Shea one of the concierge staff even went to the lengths of giving some of the smaller children a trip round the grounds in his buggy There’s so much to do at Lough Eske we didn’t have a dull minute. The castle and the surrounding grounds were in immaculate condition and it definitely deserves its 5 star rating. The food was consistently good and the staff were happy to let us order things that weren’t on the menu for the smaller kids when we had to. If you’re thinking of holding a function at the castle or visiting for a night or two don’t hesitate. We have been visiting for a few years and the same staff are still there - always a good sign in my view! Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel but with a personal touch. I loved everything about my stay and can’t wait to visit again soon.

"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!!!

"Perfect wedding venue" When our friends said they were getting married here we had never even heard of this place. What a beautiful place inside & out. We stayed for the 2 nights as we had a 2 & a half hour journey to get here. From the moment we parked the car until the moment we got back in we were just delighted with everything, staff were extremely helpful & friendly the room we stayed in was very spacious & the wedding was just perfect from start to finish. The pool could do with a hot tub but other than that was just lovely to relax in. Grounds around the castle were just beautiful. Would highly recommend a visit here

"Engagement weekend" Well where do I start. Hotel was amazing every wee detail they helped me with. Stayed in a Junior Suite and well it was brilliant room was so big. The breakfast they man in making the pancakes etc is a CREDIT to you guys, he is amazing, polite, always smiling. And the dinners in the bar area well they where second to none. The spa well that was great, felt like a king and the signature massage was well worth the money.
