Lough Erne Resort's 120 guestrooms, suites, and loughside lodges have country estate-style décor, created with palettes of red, cream, and yellow. Local artwork and antiques complement the traditional aesthetic, and breathtaking views showcase the natural beauty of the Fermanagh Lakelands and The Faldo Course. Sink into a standalone clawfoot bath, wrap yourself in ultra-soft Egyptian cotton towels, and stretch out on a king-sized bed made with lush Irish linen. Deluxe Lakeview suites have regal four-poster beds, whirlpool tubs, and binoculars for bird watching, while the Luxury Loughside two- and three-bedroom Lodge Suites are housed in striking turrets and come with a spacious lounge area, a luxury kitchen, and — a final exquisite touch — custom-monogrammed bathrobes.
As a guest, you have complimentary access to the spa’s thermal suite and infinity pool and an expert concierge team that will arrange excursions, local transport, and restaurant reservations. Six meeting and events spaces offer 11,137 sq ft / 1,035 sq m of space with golf course or castle views and custom catering and activity programs.
Acclaimed chef Noel McMeel brings his passion for local, seasonal cuisine to Lough Erne Resort's dining rooms, bars, and lounges. Sample modern Irish dishes at the three AA Rosette Catalina Restaurant, take a refined afternoon tea in the Garden Hall, or relax with a craft beer or a pre-dinner cocktail at The Blaney Bar.
The Catalina Restaurant – Glass chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate Lough Erne Resort's signature restaurant, where Noel McMeel's team creates classic and contemporary dishes from local ingredients — look out for origin and supplier noted on your menu. Expect creations such as braised beef cheek ravioli, pork loin with smoked bacon and chive sauce, and Irish pan-fried hake. Reserve a table on Monday evenings for the 7- or 10-course tasting menu that showcases the kitchen at its innovative best.
Loughside Bar & Grill – For a less formal take on McMeel's style, visit this popular restaurant overlooking the Faldo Course. Expect refined takes on steaks, burgers, and hot dogs mixed with pub classics such as fish and chips and bangers and mash.
The Blaney Bar – Find a spot on the terrace or sink into a comfy armchair near the baby grand piano with a glass of whiskey, cocktail, or craft beer. The grazing menu offers homemade soups, sandwiches, and snacks, such as Scotch eggs and lamb meatballs.
The Garden Hall – Relax in an elegant lounge with open fires and lake views, and sample Noel McMeel's unique interpretation of traditional afternoon tea. Unusual creations such as duck egg and onion brioche and caramel zephyr banoffee appear along with classic finger sandwiches, divine patisseries, and freshly baked scones, all served on local Belleek Pottery china.
The Halfway House – Located by the ninth hole green of the Faldo Course, this spot offers a casual selection of sandwiches and drinks. Open from April to October.
Book a lesson at The Golf Academy, practice your swing at the driving range or practice greens, then put your skills to the test on two championship golf courses, including the famous Faldo Course, where the 10th hole — dubbed "Emerald Isle" — is surrounded by water on three sides. For relaxation, head to the Lough Erne Spa, with Thai-inspired treatments and ESPA and Elemis products. The expansive spa includes a crystal aroma steam room, a tropical rain shower, and a light therapy sauna. Alternatively, work out in the well-equipped fitness room or swim in the infinity pool.
After exploring the resort, ask the concierge team to arrange an excursion to the Marble Arch Caves, with its subterranean rivers and rock formations, or to Florence Court, a historic Georgian house with a walled garden and native woodlands. Find out more about the exquisite china used at afternoon tea service by visiting Belleek Pottery, whose 19th-century factory has a modern visitor center and gift shop. For outdoor adventure, hike some of the trails at Lough Navar Forest and climb to Magho cliffs for panoramic views of the region.
