Luxury Donegal Stays




Retreat to a luxury Donegal stay in one of the top five-star hotels in Ireland this year. I’ve had the pleasure of staying at Lough Eske Castle at the foothills of the Bluestack Mountains in Donegal and enjoyed a fabulous visit.

The “Revival Spa Package” is designed to help you switch off, reset, and take time to yourself in the luxurious settings of the five-star Lough Eske Castle From €415 pps – offer ends April 30th 2023

More than ever, we need self-care and a refreshing change of scenery as well as something to look forward to in our lives.  Retreat to Lough Eske Castle, Donegal’s only 5-star hotel, voted as one of the top ten hotels in Ireland for 5 consecutive years by the readers of Condé Nast.

Lough Eske Castle

Enjoy the new Revival Spa package at Lough Eske Castle by switching off and feel revived this spring, with an overnight stay including breakfast, a 30-minute ESPA treatment in CARA Organic Beauty Spa, a 3-course meal in the award-winning Cedars Restaurant and with complimentary use of the hotel’s leisure facilities.

Journey past the winding shores of Lough Eske itself, and check into a spacious and luxurious bedroom.  Lounge by the open fires in one of the Castle Drawing Rooms. Arrive at CARA Organic Beauty Spa for your bespoke treatment where you will be bathed in light and overlooking the lush gardens. The Spa is known for its award-winning holistic treatments using organic products from the hotel’s spa partner, ESPA. Located in the footprint of the original Victoria Glass House, the Spa’s thermal suite includes a sauna, steam room, sanarium and jacuzzi – the ideal way to melt away your troubles and relax prior to a treatment. Choose one of the 30-minute ESPA treatments (Express Facial, Foot and Leg Massage or Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage).

Relish a gastronomic experience with a three-course dinner at the castle’s own award-winning 2 AA Rosette Cedars Restaurant. Savour some of the most popular dishes including pan seared scallops with garden pea mousseline, followed by slow braised short rib of beef with a potato mille-feuille and pepper crumble. A varied vegan menu and gluten free options are also available for all guests to enjoy.

Wake up to a leisurely full Irish breakfast, then explore Lough Eske with complimentary use of the castle bicycles and a complimentary history tour of the hotel with one of the experienced team.

Why not discover Donegal during your time at Lough Eske? Visit the majestic Sliabh Liag sea cliffs, only an hour away by car, or visit one of the stunning blue flag beaches within 30 minutes’ drive from the hotel.  For the more adventurous, go horse riding, golfing, or surfing within 40 minutes of Lough Eske – all open all year round. There is something for everyone in Donegal this spring!
