Good Hotel Guide Review
Between Lough Eske and the foothills of the Blue Stack mountains, Deirdre McGlone and Marc Gysling’s traditional hotel is run with heart. Its fans love the old-fashioned care and attention to detail – plus the rare Irish whiskeys ready for sipping by a peat fire. Spacious bedrooms are stocked daily with fresh milk, fruit and biscuits; each lakeshore suite has its own entrance and a lough-facing terrace. In the restaurant overlooking the water, modern Irish dishes might include smoked lamb loin, confit shoulder, wild garlic, white asparagus, anchovy. Breakfast has buttermilk pancakes, Donegal bacon, a daily fish special. There’s much to do: active pursuits (archery, canoeing, golf), leisurely walking routes, loughside picnics. 4 miles from town.
