Within a two-hour drive of Dublin there is a five-star Lough Erne Resort. Chosen as the site for the G8 world summit in 2013, this 120-room resort lays on a 600-acre peninsula. It is a quiet location with an easy access. Guests can arrive by seaplane on Castle Hume Lough, or they can choose one of the five hotel’s helipads.
The resort, which was built in 2008, features thick carpeting, damask curtains and burgundy leather armchairs. A library is the place where afternoon tea is served and children under 12 are not allowed inside.
In addition to a Golf Academy there is also the Faldo Golf Course. The Academy offers beginner lessons as well as advanced classes.
And, if you are not a golf fan,you can spend your time in a Thai-style spa sauna or a steam room, or you can take lake boating trips.
When you get hungry you can choose Catalina restaurant or two other dining options, the Loughside Bar & Grill for all-day casual dining and the Halfway House which offers light bites.
