  • We are so very grateful for a wonderful wedding reception at Lough Eske on the 25th August 2017 and I cannot recommend this venue and the staff highly enough. We attended a wedding open day at Lough Eske and from the first moment we stepped foot on the grounds of Lough Eske we knew we wanted to get married there. The Castle, lake and grounds are breathtaking. It is a truly special venue. When we discovered there was a bank holiday date available 5 months later we booked the date. On our first meeting we met Stephen who was honest, friendly, warm, very professional and organised. Stephen gave us great advice and was such a great help in the organisation of our big day. We also worked closely with Caoibhe who was fantastic. Given we were organising our wedding in such a short amount of time there was a lot to do in a small amount of time. Stephen was always on the other end of the phone or email to assist us in whatever it was! With over ten years’ experience with the organisation of weddings he was such a great help. Our venue was never a worry for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our pre-wedding visits and tasting menus at Lough Eske. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious. Lough Eske is a five star venue with impeccable standards but with a friendliness and warmness I have never encountered elsewhere. On the day itself we were overjoyed with the venue, food and staff. The bridal suite was AMAZING and accommodated a room full of family, friends and stylists on the morning of the wedding. The staff in particular were superb and our guests raved about the five star service. Everyone commented on the service they received, how personal it was & how they wanted for nothing. The food was out of this world - we had big numbers but every single meal was served to the same high standard.The day was professionally organised and the day flowed perfectly. Lough Eske will always be a special place for us both. Thank you Stephen and Caoibhe for our dream wedding.

  • Our wedding day at Lough Eske Castle was absolutely perfect in every way. The room was decorated exactly as we wanted, and was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. The staff were perfectly attentive, the food was amazing, and our guests cannot stop talking about the "best wedding ever!" I was hesitant about planning a wedding from so far away, as I hadn't even seen the venue before we booked it because we live in the US, but our leap of faith could not have been more worth it! We truly cannot thank Stephen and the Lough Eske staff enough!

  • We just wanted to pass on our sheer delight at how well our big day went, all thanks to you and your amazing team. From the initial booking, to the planning stages, to the day itself, everything went smoothly. On our wedding day we were made feel special, we were really happy with how everything was organised and how you and your team managed to understand the ideas in my head and helped make them come to life. We can only imagine all the work that goes on behind the scenes. Special thanks to MC, she did a great job and everything was timed well, and she kept us right, and to the waiter and waitress looking after myself and my husband during our meal, they're attentiveness didn't go unnoticed, and it added to us feeling special. The meal was amazing, as was the wine, thank you to the Chef and his team, thank you for sharing your talent. All hotel staff, hotel reception, waiters, bar tenders were all friendly, attentive (but just the right amount, not over the top), helpful and upbeat! All our guest have been raving about the wonderful venue two months on! And last but certainly not least, Stephen, you are so good at your job, you know what's best, and every bride should listen to your advice! You are always good humoured and approachable and try to make special requests happen. I thank the heavens that we had you to coordinate our big day. Thank you. We truly had the best wedding day anyone could wish for. I will be recommending Lough Eske Castle as a wedding venue, not only is it so picturesque, but the staff make dreams come true!
