Solis Lough Eske Castle
Donegal's historic Castle Hotel & Spa Resort
Myself and two friends had a bottle of wine and a light Snack in the Gallery Bar.
The service was attentive and friendly and the Crab Croquettes, with smoked Tomato Coulis, were superb and so was the wine and the ambiance!
We didn't stay there but found it a beautiful hotel, with a beautiful garden with interesting bronze sculptures ( a dragon beside an big old tree, a little dog on the front steps and a deer among others).
I've known this place as ruin for over 15 years and to see it rebuilt in such a stunning way, is just amazing!
The staff are friendly and attentive but not stiff (like one is likely to encounter in a 5-Star Hotel
Unique Quality: The Hotel is in it's own gardens, surrounded by a natural, old cedar forest. Adjacent to Lough Eske.
There is a Spa attached to the hotel and a 12 m pool (use of swimming pool for hotelguests only)
The hotel has two bars (the Oak Bar, Gallery Bar which is built on the same spot where the ballroom in the old castle was (the old castle burnt down in 1939), a Restaurant, two opulently furnished lounges, where one can sink into very comfortable sofas (one in the theme of green, the other red with antique looking paintings on the walls)
Directions: turn off for Lough Eske Drive from the N15 Donegal to Lifford Road, till you see a small chruch to your right and a signpost for Solis Lough Eske Castle, turn right and follow the path along the lake through forests to the front of the castle.
