Looking for a magical Christmas getaway to ease away the stresses of the season, then look no further than Ireland.

For a luxurious retreat in true stately style – Lough Eske Castle in Donegal is offering 3 nights for the price of two for guests wishing to see in Christmas at the hotel. It is also the only 5 star castle Hotel in Donegal. The spectacular sight of the castle in full glory lit by Christmas lights is enough to take your breath away.
Nominated the ‘Best Luxury Castle Hotel in the World’.
A majestic Elizabethan castle and Solis spa, Lough Eske was given an extensive refurbishment in 2007 but thankfully none of its original features were compromised. With open fireplaces, sandstone walls and a spectacular oak staircase, you are invited into a tapestry of grand living. Originally an abbey, the baronial quarters house numerous rooms, including a grand library and an impressive drawing room affording views over the 43 acres of landscaped gardens and forest land that the castle sits in.
The castle’s turrets bear testimony to battles fought and the turbulent times of the Middle Ages, when the lineage of the O’ Donnell’s lay the foundations to the Treaty of Mellifont. It marks its own moments in Ireland’s history, when the O’Donnell’s were forced to flee to Spain to retain their independence from English power in the 15th century.
The castle also boasts a Solis spa and beauty centre using the natural healing benefits of Aromatherapy Associates products. There is an exercise gym, and hot and cold therapy suite, with jet showers and steam baths to keep you refreshed after a dip in the 17m indoor heated pool. In fact, there is nothing that won’t ensure you enhance your physical, and emotional well being during your stay. The surrounding area also lays host to some of the finest golf courses in Europe.
