I recently treated my mother and sister to a spa day at Cromleach Lodge. We received the back to bliss packages, we met with Celine and Ciara at reception and they were both fantastic and top notch beauty and therapeutic professionals. Both girls are credited to the establishment and we can't wait to go back !

This is a large destination hotel situated on the hillside above Loch Arrow (Arbhach), which caters extensively to an older, wealthy clientele. The Frank Sinatra soundtrack completes the retro vibe. Our room was fabulous: large, warm, well-laid out and with a fantastic view of the lake. Dinner very good, with generous portions, although a bit pricey. The owner provided very good walking recommendations. The breakfast was a buffet rather than freshly cooked, with the usual drawbacks, i.e. dried out bacon, mass-produced scrambled eggs, and lukewarm tea. However, you also can order a cooked breakfast from the kitchen if you ask for anything other than scrambled eggs. The other drawback is that you can order a light evening meal from the bar menu if you're not too hungry. However, it's served in the dining room, and the service is sub-optimal as a result. Diners who are buying bottles of wine and 3-course meals are definitely favored; we weren't even offered dessert the one night we ate from the bar menu. We got a great rate on the hotel by booking online, mid-week.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the lake have gorgeous views.

I attended a wedding at Cromleach Lodge earlier this month, and I was very impressed overall.
On approach to the venue, the road is quite narrow and winding, but the scenery is very nice if you can take a minute to appreciate it.
Cromleach Lodge appears in the distance up on a hill and is very impressive as you drive in from the road.
Reception was very efficient and had our booking details readily at hand so there was no delay at all there and the girls were very welcoming and helpful in general.
We joined the wedding party in the bar, and although the decor and view was beautiful, the bar itself was quite small and dare I say understaffed for a wedding.
The function room was beautifully decorated and staff were very efficient once again.
The bar in the function room was very adequate for the event and was well staffed also.
The food was fabulous, and plentiful also.
Our room was lovely with a small balcony but it was quite a trek away from the reception area. It was evident that this venue had been extended a few times and although was finished to a very high standard, it did tend to sprawl so as to create the extra space required, which resulted in the extra walking time, but that was very minor so don't let that put you off!
Breakfast the next morning was very good, with a self service buffet.
Staff were very attentive and it wasn't long before we had pots of tea and coffee in front of us.
Checkout was a breeze as we had paid in advance.
In conclusion I would highly recommend that you at least visit Cromleach Lodge even for a meal or a coffee, as the view from the front windows alone is worth it.
I would gladly go back, and probably will.

It was a lovely guesthouse, lovely spa, sauna, steam room and zacussi. Lovely restaurant but a bit pricey. We had a room overlooking the lake on special offer. We had a veranda. Food was excellent, bottled water and tea and coffee making facilities in room. Spa was relaxing and a nice lounge. Great view of lough arrow. I'd go again.

Attended a wedding here in January. Hotel is in beautiful setting and the rooms are very nice. Great service for our stay and the food was excellent. The best vegetarian food I've ever had at a wedding. Based on this experience I'll be back this summer for a weekend.

This is our second visit to Cromleach Lodge and again it didn't disappoint in any way. Room 110 is a lovely spacious room & has fabulous views overlooking Lough Arrow amidst absolute peace & quiet. We were greeted by Christy, one of the owners, who took us to our table, which was a nice touch. Dinner was a wonderful experience, with excellent service & delicious food. Appetizers consisted of celeriac & apple soup & choice of homemade breads served with sundried tomato & an olive tapenade, followed by scallop & trout dishes and a main course of mouth watering rump of lamb accompanying perfectly cooked red cabbage, mange tout & creamy potatoes. There was a lovely atmosphere in the dining room. Breakfast was an excellent spread, although it would have been nice to have had an egg cook on duty, as buffet-style scrambled eggs aren't nice after sitting around for a while. We only had to ask for freshly made strong coffee & it was very good. Moira, the owner, talked to lots of the guests, which was a nice touch. The cost of this very enjoyable one night stay was very reasonable and we shall be back.

Room Tip: A room with a lough view & not too far from reception, restaurant areas

We had a wonderful meal in Cromleach Lodge on Easter Saturday evening. The hotel is set in beautiful countryside with fabulous views over the lake. The building itself doesn't look particularly special on approach, but what awaits inside is a real treat. The dining room is comfortable and would appeal to all ages and expectations in that it isn't trendy or fancy...just comfortable which I would imagine puts a lot of people immediately at ease. This restaurant seems to appeal to all ages and on the night we were there there were diners from under a year to elderly couples, family groups, young couples.

We were warmly greeted by a young man and shown to our table. Our waitress was a lovely local girl who can only be described as a breath of fresh air...she was charming, down to earth and excellent at her job. There was a notice on the table that the restaurant provided their own mineral water in reusable bottles either still or sparkling, as much as you wanted for €1.50 per person. Great idea, Eco friendly, wallet friendly and great tasting water...a win win. The menu was good and covered all tastes - wine list was comprehensive and good value. delighted to see a good choice of 1/2 bottles, given that the hotel is a drive alway from anywhere it meant that one of us could enjoy a nice choice of wine while the other drove.

An amuse bouche of Curried Cauliflower soup arrived, subtle flavour of curry, nice consistency and a sign of good things to come. Homemade breads were served along with a sun dried tomato and an olive tapenade....really delicious, we tried not to, but ended up eating all the bread it was so good! Starters for both of us - Fresh Donegal Sea Trout - delicious...really delicious. Main courses Wild Atlantic Salmon for me and a chicken and polenta dish for him .....both really good. Accompanying vegetables, amazing.....who knew cabbage could taste so good, and as for the mange tout and the sinfully creamy potatoes. Whoever is cooking in the kitchen at Cromleach certainly knows what they are doing....this is one of the best meals I have eaten anywhere.

As the rest of the meal was so good we just had to try the deserts.....Creme brûlée tart...and a lemon tart....both fantastic. We ended our meal with coffee and petit fours. Throughout, our waitress was attentive and friendly. The owner or manager came over to speak to most tables during the evening which was a lovely touch. This restaurant is a real gem, its a totally Irish experience from food to friendliness of staff, quality of ingredients and commitment to local quality. This message was reinforced when I went to the ladies and immediately could smell the fabulous aroma of Voya seaweed products from the nearby village of Strandhill.

I would highly recommend the restaurant at Cromleach Lodge and I would love to return there again in the near future.
