Lough Eske Castle          

 Lough Eske F94 HX59 Donegal Town − Ireland

A castle has been located on the hotel site dating back as far as the 1400's. The current castle was built in the 1860's and was completely destroyed by fire in 1939. The castle, as a focal point of the hotel, has now been completely renovated and enhanced to create the Lough Eske Castle.
