Lough Eske Castle 5*
LUXURY AFTER LINKS BY THE LOUGH
As you wind your way through the forest beside the water en route to Lough Eske Castle, there is a strong sense of anticipation. Few hotels in Ireland can boast a wow factor like Lough Eske as it comes into view. An ancient castle dating back to the 1400’s but restored to the highest modern standards, it takes the breath away on first sight.
Making your way through the grand front doors, you can spot open fires, imperious portraits and perfect finishing throughout. A feeling of relaxation and grandeur can almost catch you off guard and this feeling will remain until it is time to check out.
As a golfer checking in to such a hotel, your arrival in the bedroom will allay any fears of a broken nights sleep after a hard day on the course. King sized beds sit in the centre of these beautifully finished rooms and on observation, the silence of this remote location is palpable.
This is the only 5* hotel in the area but there is no shortage of 5* golf. Within a 15 minute drive you will be able to make your way to Donegal Golf Club which has been mentioned as one of the best courses he has played by Darren Clarke. A little further in the car and you can make your way to Lough Erne, Rosses Point, Narin & Portnoo, Rosapenna, Portsalon or Ballyliffin.
