Beautiful hotel in gorgeous surroundings with excellent staff, food and accommodation.
We had to wait an hour on our room as it wasn't ready but the staff were very nice about it all and sent us some cake later that evening to apologise.
However, the hotel isn't quite as pet friendly as it seems as dogs can only access the outside rooms leaving their owners pretty much stranded there too which means having a drink or meal in the hotel or even spending some relaxation time in it are out for those of us who have brought along their dog.
Despite this Lough Eske Castle provides a very relaxing getaway and the courtyard rooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds - next time though we'll leave the dog at home.
