The 5-star Lough Eske Castle, close to the historic town of Donegal in northwest Ireland, offers luxurious accommodation in a meticulously restored 17th-century castle.
Set in 43 acres of woodland with views of the Bluestack Mountains, the hotel has 96 spacious bedrooms with deep carpets, marble bathrooms and complimentary robes and slippers for maximum comfort. Condé Nast Traveler has named Lough Eske one of it's top three luxury hotels in Ireland, praising the "stylish upgrade" of a "magnificent building" and the "lavish" interiors.
Facilities include Cedars Restaurant, serving contemporary cuisine with local ingredients. The Irish Independent described dinner as "faultless", with "impeccably cooked local meat and creative dishes". Post-dinner, guests can retire to a selection of cosy reading rooms or the Gallery Bar, described by Condé Nast Traveler as "wonderfully atmospheric".
Lough Eske is also home to a sumptuous spa -- winner of Best Service Award 2013 in the Tatler Spa Awards -- where guests get complimentary access to the swimming pool, fitness centre and Thermal Suite.
The hotel has been awarded the World Luxury Hotel Award for Best Luxury Country Hotel for five consecutive years and has also been named No. 1 Hotel in Ireland by MyGuideIreland.com.
