Lough Eske Castle launches mid-week breaks perfect for a romantic getaway

Book me in ASAP!

As much as I love a family holiday it's also lovely to get a breakaway for just myself and my spouse.

If you're thinking along the same lines and want to book the perfect little break just for two, look no further.

Donegal’s Lough Eske Castle has just launched its new “Midweek Gourmet Getaway” breaks and they look so romantic.

Donegal’s only five-star hotel Lough Eske Castle has just launched their new “Midweek Gourmet Getaway” to tempt you to the North West this summer and as I'm concerned they're succeeding.

The Midweek Gourmet Getaway package is designed with foodies in mind who wish to come to Donegal, kick back and enjoy world-class cuisine in a beautiful setting.

Lough Eske's package starts off with a tempting “Floral Afternoon Tea” for two in one of the castles regal drawing rooms, where you can sample some of their sweet delights along with a cosy cuppa.

Then guests can dive into the newly launched summer menu at Lough Eske Castle. New additions to the menu include dishes such as Donegal crab with apple, avocado and green goddess dressing begin and roast Irish rump of lamb, sweet bread, artichoke, pea, hazelnut and mint.

Speaking about the new menu head chef Richard McKee says;

“Guests will see the changes in the menu with a different style of cooking and lighter options influenced by international styles from the Nordic and Asian regions in time for the summer season.”

It's funny that McKee mentions the Nordic influences because browsing the menu reminded me a lot of the food I ate in Finland.

The Midweek Gourmet Getaway includes:

· Two nights' accommodation with full Irish breakfast each morning
· A sumptuous three-course dinner in Cedars Restaurant on one evening
· Traditional Afternoon Tea for two people in one afternoon
· Complimentary use of swimming pool and fitness room at the Spa
· 20% discount on all spa treatments of 60 minutes or more

Prices start from €549 in a Courtyard Guestroom, midweek (Sun – Thurs) and you can book through the Lough Eske website https://www.lougheskecastlehotel.com/castle-hotel-special-offers.
