      Fantastic place, could not recommend more

      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!

      We would like to thank you and all the staff for making our day special. Everything from the ceremony to the meal was absolutely outstanding. The staff were excellent and very attentive to us and all our guests. The feedback we received from our guests the next day was unanimous, they found the ceremony relaxed and intimate, the venue spoke for itself and the meal was delicious. Thank you again for all your help and for making our day so memorable. We look forward to visiting Solis the next time we travel home.

      Perfect venue to have a wedding!

      Lough Eske castle is the perfect venue to have a wedding. The grounds and main building are stunning, the staff are phenomenal and everything is designed to make the wedding day as stress-free as possible for the bride and groom. Probably the best aspect of the wedding there is having Stephen Bell as the organizer - he is at once highly organized, efficient and extremely nice and generous with his time. He was in contact with us for at least a year before the wedding and was even helpful to us after the wedding was over. We felt like we were in very good hands at all times. The castle and surrounding areas (e.g the lake) give numerous opportunities for photographs. And despite how good everything is - and despite their countless awards - the price is extremely reasonable compared with comparable venues at other locations across the country. I have no criticisms of Lough Eske Castle whatsoever and my wife and I plan to go back there many times in the future.
