Spa & Leisure

The relaxation experience at Lough Eske Castle is not limited to the spa; in fact the destination as a whole is something of an extension to the spa experience. Activities include horse riding, fishing, surfing, golf, and simply enjoying the great outdoors.

Providing the final flourish however is the Spa Solis. In a dedicated building in the hotel grounds it has a gym, pool, jet bath, sauna, steam room, ice fountain, sanarium, experience showers, infinity pool, and seven treatment rooms including two couple’s suites, offering therapies using Anne Semonin and Yon-Ka product lines.

Hotel & Accommodation

In a storybook location, with a history dating back to the 1400s and the founding fathers of Donegal, Lough Eske Castle is a five star hotel on a secluded lakeside estate just outside Donegal Town. The castle itself was opulently renovated in 2007, however it retains its sense of Tudor-baronial grandeur, adding a unique twist to a world-class hotel.

It is all about quality produce and a carefully crafted ambiance at the castle, and nowhere is this more evident than when it comes to dining. Both in Cedars Grill Restaurant, and the Gallery and Oak Bars, hospitality combined with contemporary interiors and locally sourced produce make for an elegant setting, perfectly completed by views of the grounds.
