Review of Solis Lough Eske Castle
Aug 11, 2010
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. So much thought had been given to the restoration that we were shocked and disappointed to see mass-produced antique-look furnitue, something one does not expect from a hotel of this class which is advertised as
a castle with real antique furniture. The spa area was a real pleasure, as was the food, breakfast in particular.
We really appreciated the surroundings with the many interesting and tasteful sculptures. The staff were attentive and friendly.
