Fodor's Review

Set between two serene lakes on the small island of Ely, the manicured lawns of the Lough Erne Resort, with its backdrop of shimmering Castle Hume Lough, were thrust into the spotlight in 2013, when it played host to the G8. What those power brokers experienced was a special property with a country-house feel in a mix of reconstituted sandstone and Danish timber. The lodges come with kitchenettes and guarantee privacy, while the handsome guest rooms have an appealing warmth. The headliner is the 18-hole Faldo Course, designed by the touring pro Nick Faldo, but a Thai spa and pool are among the other delights. Diners can enjoy the elegant Catalina restaurant, or head for the Halfway House, secreted in a log cabin behind the 9th green and serving lighter bites. Golfers can choose from two 18-hole championship courses, or, if you fancy trying your hand at fishing, the services of a gillie, Jim Hoy, are on hand to show you the tricks of casting with flies.
