Situated 5 km from Donegal Town in Co. Donegal, the Solis Lough Eske Castle is Donegal’s one and only five star hotel and spa where guests may indulge in an authentic Irish experience and memorable retreat.

Dating back in the 1400’s, this 4 storey tower castle is rich in history and tradition. The castle was originally built in 1474 and reconstructed in the 1860’s; however, it was later destroyed by fire in 1939. The original castle has been transformed to what is now called the Solis Lough Eske Castle. To this day, a stone engraved with the year 1621 still remains on the property as a memory of the castle’s history.

Guests at the Solis Lough Eske Castle enjoy easy access to golf, fishing, horse riding, walking and hiking, and coastal sailing. It is also a premier destination for weddings, banquets, romantic escapes or simply a retreat to enjoy some of Ireland’s majestic views.
