Bit remote, beautiful grounds, terrible WIFI

Posted Jun 11, 2017
Pros: Grounds were gorgeous, great bathrooms
Cons: WIFI needs to be improved
Location: Donegal
Bit of a drive to get to Lough Eske Castle Hotel on narrow side roads, but the grounds are worth the journey. The exterior "looks" like a castle, and the grounds were beautiful, however, once you step past the lobby there was no castle feel whatsoever, felt like a typical hotel which was disappointing. The room itself was nice, particularly the modern bathroom. No A/C but they did provide a fan in the room which helped immensely during the heat spell that was happening during our visit. Unfortunately I had to conduct some business during our stay and the WIFI was terrible, mentioned it to staff at the front desk who basically blew me off with a simple apology.

Wonderful hotel near Donegal

Posted Jun 7, 2017
Pros: Staff were super professional and very helpful. The grounds--inside and out---are great to explore and enjoy. The pool/spa is an added bonus.
Cons: Add ceiling fans. The layout of rooms is odd but sort of adds to the charm.
Location: Donegal is a 5 minute ride. Slieve League is a 50 minute drive. We dined at the Old Castle Bar (VG) and drinks/music at Reel Inn was fun.
Great "newer" castle turned hotel. The grounds are beautiful and our stay was wonderful. The staff are great and rooms splendid. This hotel and our drive to Slieve League was a highlight of our trip and we had a blast in Donegal one evening. The breakfasts were great.
