First of all the website we used to book the hotel didn't complete it properly ??? I don't know why... but the lady in reception was brilliant and the room we got was fantastic plenty of space.. the chowder was fantastic 5***** . Really enjoyed the dinner and breakfast was brilliant ... to be honest can't wait to go there again... staff very nice and friendly... allover experience fantastic stay and beds are so comfortable.

Hi there Brendan,

Great to hear from you and thanks a million for your review.
Delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the 5 star chowder review ,chef was thrilled. We are so lucky to have excellent food suppliers here in the hotel and our seafood suppliers are top class! As our head chef Mareks says " It has to start with the best locally sourced ingredients" that is the key to a good chowder!!
We look forward to seeing you again soon- next time book direct with us and you will get the best value and we will make sure you have the same room. Contact our reservations manager Mary on reservations@loughreahotelandspa.com

See you soon
Victoria

I booked this hotel for my boyfriend and I as we had a wedding and we were staying the night. We checked in and got a friendly hello and a big welcome. We were given our room and off we went. We landed in our room and to be honest I was very shocked our room was so nice and had a lovely view. The room was spotless. I was very impressed. We headed down to the wedding reception and ha da few nibbles and drink that were delicious. We headed in awhile later into the room. The meal was vey nice and I was full after it. The portion sizes were very generous. The room was done really well. The staff were brilliant. The next morning we headed down for the breakfast and we went up for our breakfast and the chef was there placing it on a plate for you which I thought was very handy. I would recommend this hotel to stay in.

I just wanted to say thank you to the wonderful and lovely staff who made our stay such a success. It was my sister’s hen party and they kindly gave us three rooms near each other. Mary in Reservations was a delight to speak to and really helpful. Donna and Ciara on reception were so kind and helpful, and sorted us with tape for the decorations and toothpaste when we forgot ours. Cathal in the bar did our cocktail class and it was such a great ice breaker and he even made a cocktail that wasn’t on the menu, at the request of the bride to be. Dinner was served by Abby and Sophie (I think!) And they were so sweet and helpful, as we had two vegetarians in the group and there wasn’t a veg option on the menu. Very understanding.

The girls were all raving about their spa treatments too, so that was a lovely success as well.

Thank you so much for making my sister’s celebration a night to remember.

From start to finish the Hotel was excellent. From reception drinks & nibbles, the wedding meal, service & staff, it was a great experience. I have to mention one staff member in particular, Donna McInerney, on reception. I forgot to bring my glasses & Donna helped me & got me a spare pair of glasses to get me through the day. If it was'nt for Donnas help, i would not have been able to take or look at any wedding photos. Thanks for your help Donna, it was very much appreciated
