Ireland 5 Star Castle Hotels

Welcome to

The World's Best Castle Hotel, Steeped in History

Lough Eske Castle, a five-star castle hotel located on a secluded lakeside estate just outside Donegal Town, has a rich history dating back to the 1400s being associated with the O'Donnell Clan, the founding fathers of Donegal, a county in the north-west region of Ireland.

This is an historic building set in a storybook location delivering superior hospitality and comfort and is the ideal place for those who simply want to relax and unwind; for the business traveller who wants modern-day comforts and solitude to brainstorm; for the wedding couple who want a WOW venue for their special day; for those who want to explore the great outdoors and the many attractions of this beautiful region; and for the company that may want to impress clients or motivate employees.

Lough Eske Castle is the only Irish hotel to claim a World Luxury Hotel Award and has won the World's Best Luxury Country Hotel title for the past FOUR consecutive years (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009). It has also been named No. 1 Hotel in Ireland by MyGuideIreland; voted Wedding Venue of the Year 2010 & 2011 and Castle Venue of the Year 2009/2012 and wedding coordinator of the year 2012 by Ireland's largest wedding website: Lough Eske Castle has also been recognised among the World's Best Castle Hotels  by global travel expert Stephanie Abrams and is the only five-star hotel in County Donegal, Ireland.
