Lough Erne Resort Review
Lough Erne is fabulous, and a gateway to the scenic northwest. It is perfect for exploring Donegal, Omagh, Fermanagh, Sligo and Leitrim. The luxury Hotel Spa and Championship Golf Course is just perfect for arelaxing stay in Ireland.
>Entry is from the Belleek Road (where you will find the pottery factory just a few minutes away). You enter through the Hiume Golf Course, past luxurious private homes and across a meandering bridge to the resort. At night the winding bridge is lit up.
The Nick Faldo designed course is the centerpiece of the resort, with its most famous hole, the Emerald Isle, jutting out into the lake. Buggies are available. Ruari(Rory McIlroy) is the professional golfer associated with the course, but resident pro Lynn McCool was happy to show us around. The half way house will shortly become a seafood restaurant. The pro shop has a great assortment of quality goods. The golf academy was in the building stages while we were there.
Round self catering units, complete with kitchen and 2 or 3 bedrooms are reminiscent of Bavaria, and are perfect for a family or a group of golfers. There is plenty of storage, large bedrooms, bathrooms, and a central living room and kitchen in each. But it is truly Irish style otherwise. The friendly and helpful staff are full of Irish wit and chat. The view from the bar, restaurant and lobby is magnificent, overlooking the golf course and Lough Erne. The Thai Spa, easily reached from the guest rooms, was relaxing a beautifull. I only sampled the pool and jacuizi. But they were uncrowded.
The hotel bedrooms are large and well designed and appointed. We had a view of the lake. On the clear sunny days we were there, life could be no finer. Dinner in the Noel McMeel dining room was top notch, the wine excellent, and the after dinner relaxation in the bar were the best. It took about 2 ½ hours to drive to Dublin from Lough Erne, traveling through Cavan, Navan and Meath.
