Not to be confused with the concrete eye sore known as Lough Erne Resort this is not the Ritz or the Dorchester however it is not Fawlty Towers or Bates Motel. Food was of a high standard and well presented. Room was satisfactory with a very comfortable bed. Staff were very pleasant although under pressure due to budget restraints. Hotel...

Refurbishment is ongoing and the work that has been completed so far is first class. Very comfortable rooms and a nice family atmosphere overall. great to have guaranteed...

Have visited this hotel for many years and have been let down in recent visits. My family and I used to stay in the homely cottages until they were unfortunately unavailable. As we were so impressed with the cottages we decided to give the main hotel a chance as we loved the surrounding area. The hotel was average overall but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lough Erne townhouse hotel is a little locally run 16 bedroom building with a small but key staff who deal with our guests on a daily level, providing a more personal service that certain guests love time and time again. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Fermanagh's lakeland on the banks of the Glendurragh River 1 mile from Lough Erne itself, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you on your arrival at the Lough Erne Hotel. Our Riverside lounge and Bridgewater restaurant offers an excellent choice of menu. Regular entertainment, weekend and midweek breaks throughout the year. The Lough Erne Hotel began life as a Royal Irish Constabulary barrack in 1862. It was built by the governors of the Vaughan Charity who then owned the village of Kesh. The building cost £650 and the police paid £30 per year for rent. A year after the barrack was built it was burnt down in an accidental fire. Some repairs were done immediately but further work was carried out in 1921. For example stabling for horses that was provided behind the hotel in what is now the Glendurragh Suite. One of the RIC officers stationed in Kesh, Constable McCormick, was a very famous boxer. In fact he once fought the British Heavyweight Champion, Billy Wells. Another local man, Bob Irwin, was also a famous boxer in those days, once beating the Welterweight champion of the Rhine Army. ... more   less
