Overview

Beautiful setting and ample on-site activities
For such a remote hotel, there are only two dining options to choose from
If you're looking to get the full Irish experience, a stay at the Lough Eske Castle is essential. The hotel is located in a castle that belonged to the same clan that founded the town in which it resides. Donegal Town, which was founded in the 1400s, is located in northwestern Ireland (about 130 miles north of Galway) and offers up what guests have described as a fairytale-like setting – perfectly manicured grounds and deep green forestry as far as the eye can see. What's more, the lough (or lake) is just steps from the hotel. But location isn't the only thing that this property has going for it. Guests raved about the amenities and attentive service. Standard rooms are outfitted with bespoke wood furniture, 32-inch flat-screen TVs, bathrooms with separate showers and tubs and robes and slippers. On-site, guests can unwind at the spa, which features an indoor pool overlooking the grounds, or take part in a variety of adventure activities that can be arranged by the hotel, including golfing, fishing, equestrian activities and even archery, among many more. For dining, visitors can sit down at the Cedars Restaurant, a more upscale option great for a romantic meal, or head to the Gallery Bar, which serves a bistro menu for lunch and dinner, as well as a traditional afternoon tea.
