With landscaped gardens spreading on the shores of picturesque Lough Eske, Lough Eske Castle is based in a restored 17th-century castle. This five-star hotel aims to provide a royal-like accommodation to all patrons thanks to rooms equipped with flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi service and four-poster or canopy beds. Those looking for an added touch of luxury can stay in an apartment with a separate, plush living room, free-standing bath and a fireplace. Peckish visitors have a choice of popping into an upscale grill restaurant or a traditional sports bar, or stay in their chambers and order room service. For the active guests, an exercise room and indoor pool present an alternative to the equally attractive option of taking a stroll around the lake. Those looking for a more laid-back break, can make use of spa facilities, including a thermal suite and a wide selection of treatments.
