We stay in The Lough Allen quite often and love it. It is set in a beautiful location and the hotel itself is very clean with excellent facilities and it is especially child/family friendly although this should not deter couples from staying as everyone is equally catered for. While we love the location, hotel and food Lough Allen's greatest asset by far is the staff who are always friendly, welcoming and will always go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best it can be. looking forward to staying many more times.

We had a lovely 2 night stay, from start to finish was very good. Prompt checking in to checking out. Had dinner in the bar both nights & was enjoyable if a little expensive. Swimming pool was very good but had outdoor Jacuzzi and it was raining so didn't get to try it out. Nice big room with comfortable beds & adequate bathroom. We would definitely return to this hotel

We stayed 2 nights midweek with our two young children 4yrs & 11months...we thought we would be in a family room but were given a 2 bedroom apt which was very spacious...the only thing missing was a small fridge which wud be handy for babys milk etc. My only negative were the thin walls! The noise coming from the apt above us was bad...especially with young children sleeping but the lady on reception was very helpful and sorted it straight away. The views are gorgeous and there are great facilities for kids....the playroom for smaller children...games room and our favourite...the pool! Food was good in the bistro and we took a short drive to Glencar waterfall which was beautiful! Good selection at breakfast and staff are very friendly...all in all...a nice couple of days away...

Had a wonderful break in this lovely hotel, hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful, pool is also lovely as is the spa. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of it I really can not fault this hotel and will return more often.

Excellent service and nice staff, food was top class in the bar restaurant and the buffet at breakfast was well stocked.

by Maria on Mar 19 2019 11:27

We had an amazing stay, we stayed for 2nights and had our two children with us aged 10 and 4 there was things for them both to do, the staff could not of been more help full they up graded our room to a larger family room and if they had an apartment free for the 2 night they were going to give us that, we were more than happy with our room. We ate in the bar on the first night and as a family of 4 with 2 starters and 4 mains it was very reasonable at under €60. I would highly recommend this hotel to young, old and families. We will definitely be back

Had a brilliant time hotel lovely and very friendly staff.

by White Family on Sep 11 2018 14:10

Amazing hotel, The staff were very nice and polite, the food was Delicious, very clean hotel everything was provided for us in the rooms, lovely and clean pool area towels provided, out door Jacuzzi straight from the pool, sauna and steam room. small games room on the lower floor didnt know about until last day but kids didn't need it. The view from the hotel was fabulous, mountains on one side and the lough view on the other. well wort a visiting stay we cant wait to go back again.

by Darren on Jul 24 2018 10:06

Great location for family break .. plenty to do for kids with playground, swimming pool facilities whilst also offering kids club from 6pm til 10 which allows parents to unwind for those few hours by maybe having some dinner or few drinks in bar or restaurant on site. The hotel is also very centrally located to avail of local attractions such as arigna mines, tullyboy farm, cavan & leitrim railway, parke's castle and glencar waterfall to name but a few. Finally cannot complete any review without mentioning the exceptionally helpful and friendly staff who are an absolute credit the hotel and go a long way to making this a very enjoyable family experience. Thanks to all

Lovely hotel, we’d a balcony do it was fab especially as the weather was so good.

by dan on Jun 19 2018 11:03

Fantastic stay, very friendly staff, stunning room and location, would highly recommend to all

by Lorraine on Jun 2 2018 08:28

We really enjoyed our stay, room, staff and pool were all excellent. Although the breakfast was good and the staff were great, it would be 100% better if the cold products were actually in a chiller, and if the hot vegetarian products (ie potatoes, hash browns, beans) were kept with each other rather than beside meat products!

by siobh on Mar 20 2018 13:00

The stay was quite nice, although, the food was not good. It served carvery vegetables with the dinner and the wine was extremely over priced (27 euro) for possible an 8 euro bottle of wine. The food was very over priced. Also, the water for the shower and bath was luke warm. The swimming facilities were good and the staff were nice.

by AH on Oct 22 2017 23:18

Good for families and in quiet location. Pleasant staff at reception.

by Clare on Oct 17 2017 20:28

Just back from night away in lough Allen hotel.lovely hotel from staff to food to rooms.lovely location. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

by foggy on Oct 13 2017 06:07

pleasant stay good value, good food and all staff very friendly.

by Jill B on Oct 11 2017 09:45

A great hotel in a lovely location. We really enjoyed the weekend break in Drumshanbo, there's so much to do in the area. From just outside the hotel grounds, we walked along the canal to the new floating boardwalk on acres lake. And then we continued on along the canal walk the whole way to Leitrim Village. It took about 2 and a half hours in total. Just fabulous. The hotel was excellent value for the 2 nights b&b. Looking forward to our next visit already.

by Pauline on Oct 10 2017 11:09

Perfect hotel for a very quiet get away. Lovely walking trails, all accessible from the hotel. Leisure centre is lovely too, they have an outdoor Jacuzzi but unfortunately it was out of order on our visit. Food in the bar is grand if you are happy with burgers and chips and that kind of thing, they do that extremely well :) The restaurant food was much healthier option and really good portions and fresh food. The breakfast was good, plenty to choose from to include a healthy option if required. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is huge, the main part is in good condition but the extended areas could do with a bit of maintenance. Overall a very peaceful place, perfect getaway, on the shore of a beautiful lough which I'm sure is full of life in the Summer months, If you just want to relax and unwind with the option of walking or bike ride I would highly recommend this hotel and location. It was October when we ventured up so we were very happy to just relax, walk, sleep and eat :)

lovely Hotel and staff

by Sinead Barron on Sep 20 2017 11:53

Everything exceeded our expectations. Greeted with a warm welcome. No family rooms available to our complete joy we received two apartments, it made the stay all that bit more comfortable. Amazing views and walks around the area. We ate in the bar and the food was lovely, great barman made us very welcome too. Our waiter that evening went above his job looking after us and had a word for young and old. He even sang happy birthday while talking out the cake to my dad for the laugh, great addition to the hotel. Swimming pool was lovely and warm and clean albeit a bit small, hot tub great too. Playground and pool tables a great addition to amuse kids although pool table not allowed to be used after 9. Suggest a better area for those games to allow use at least until 10 as they are a big asset. Thoroughly enjoyed by all and can't believe I didn't know about this hiding gem, we will be back. Thanks

by Ray on Sep 6 2017 15:06

I did'nt give this hotel top rating because in my opinion the noise volume in the bar with two monster televisions facing each other was excessive. By the way, I'm deaf and even with my hearing aids switched off and acting as ear plugs, it was still too loud for me. Ray

by Michelle on Sep 6 2017 12:32

Stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised to be offered the choice of a room or a 2 bed apartment, we took the 2 apartment which was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a 3 course meal and a few drinks in the bar which was all very nice. Breakfast was good too, a good selection of hot or cold options on offer. All of the staff were very warm and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.

by Lyndsey on Sep 5 2017 11:47

Fab Hotel, friendly staff! Great food will definitely return!

by Happy on Aug 8 2017 17:52

Spacious rooms, breakfast was super. Furniture and carpets need an upgrade.

by pat on Aug 3 2017 10:18

Very nice hotel, good clean rooms and lovely food. My main gripes are that there was no BBC 1 in either of the rooms I booked and that the wifi was dredful. I realise that generally wifi is bad in Leitrim but a large hotel should have something better than the poor quality we endured. I also found the receptionist to be quite glib when dealing with my complaints. Overall about 2.5 stars.

by Gerry on Jul 29 2017 12:17

Really enjoyed our stay. Good food. Staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Will definitely go back.

by Kirstyf55 on Jul 18 2017 20:34

Spent a lovely 2 nights at the hotel. Ate at the bar both nights and food was really nice and the staff were more than helpful, they also made a lot of effort with my 10 month old baby which was nice. Went to the pool both days and It's great, big pool with sauna and steam room and the out door hot tub was fantastic with a wonderful view. The rooms themselves are a bit dated, especially the television but they were clean and the beds were comfy, got a great nights sleep both nights. Got breakfast to the room on both mornings which was only a small charge of €5 per morning. Breakfast was lovely, arrived on time and was nice and hot. Would def visit again, maybe when my baby is a bit older and can attend the kids club which is on every evening and a great idea for parents to have some alone time.

Had a great time stayed one night loving to stay for more would highly recommend will be going again A++

Beautiful relaxing hotel for a break away

by Siobhan on Jul 11 2017 12:37

Excellent family hotel. Staff very helpful. Had a toddler with us and they were very accommodating. Food was excellent in the Bar. Breakfast was very nice but could be better organized. Will return again

by fed28 on Jul 4 2017 10:46

Hotel was average at best. Rooms were OK, nothing special. Could barely get a drip of hot water from the shower the whole weekend which was highly frustrating. Advised reception who said they would send up maintenance (probably did, we were out most of the day), but didn't help at all. Breakfast was grand, but food service in the bar was surprisingly slow considering it was during the day, pretty empty, and we only ordered two desserts. Hotel is also in the middle of nowhere really, costed us e20 to carrick-on-shannon in a taxi, and e26 back. Hot tub outside was a nice tough, really enjoyed that. And my partner got a massage in the spa which she really enjoyed. Overall, would have been pretty annoyed if I paid full price, and can see why they've got to use deal sites to fill rooms.

by Snowgul on Jun 1 2017 13:45

This is my second time with my family in hotel. Big family suite was great. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. The bar food was also good although 19.50 euro for fish catch of the day was a bit steep seeing as it was a special. 13.95euro was reasonable for the other main courses. Swimming pool was also very good. Will definitely go back again. Many thanks Lough allen

by Caolan on May 23 2017 11:32

I stayed here with family which included toddlers and children. We had a fantastic time - the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful and the hotel offers so much for children including games rooms, outdoor activities, leisure facilities etc. we will definitely return and I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

by Mar on May 2 2017 19:09

Great place for a weekend. Friendly staff, nice food and relaxed atmosphere in an untouched part of Ireland. I would definitely recommend it.

by Linda Wynne on May 2 2017 11:09

Just back from a 2 night stay in Lough Allen Hotel, can I fault it, NO. Lovely hotel, lots to do, staff are lovely, food is lovely, so much for my daughter to do with a lovely out door play area, pool & children's indoor play area too. Got a great offer through 3+ Breaks, will definitely be going back.

by Elaine on Apr 27 2017 11:24

The Lough Allen hotel is a fantastic hotel. We have been a few times and will definately go back. The amenities for the children are brilliant and the pool is so clean. The food in the bar is really lovely and its all topped off by the amazing staff that work there. I would highly recommend the hotel.

by sam on Apr 27 2017 09:18

by Sally on Apr 7 2017 12:03

A lovely hotel with a lovely staff! Service a bit slow in the bar for food but it was a busy night! Music was great. We will be back.

by gerry on Mar 28 2017 11:54

Our stay at the Lough Allen Hotel was very pleasant. We originally booked for one night ( Saturday 25th March) but were offered a complimentary stay for an additional night without breakfast. This was a wonderful offer and we couldn't resist taking it up. On Saturday night we had a lovely meal in the Restaurant. The food was superb and service excellent. We also had a number of drinks in the bar prior to after diner which we enjoyed immensely. The music was also first class. The breakfast on Sunday morning was superb and set us up for the remainder of the day. We didn't get an opportunity of using the leisure centre because we left after Breakfast to head to Omagh to a football match. Sadly we had to leave very early on Monday morning as I had to go to work. In summary this was a lovely experience and I enjoyed every moment of it. Since returning to work I have told many people of your excellent facility and I am quite sure some of them will book with you at as future date.

by Andrea McHugh on Mar 28 2017 11:16

Fantastic hotel, would definitely recommend staying here and we will be booking again in the future. Staff very friendly and helpful!!

by Patricia on Mar 22 2017 20:17

Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Great food and plenty to do including a spa, gym and swimming pool. Really enjoyed the spa treatments. Highly recommended.

by Anne on Nov 3 2016 20:25

Great family break. Very pleasant staff and good food. I would certainly recommend the hotel for a family break and there are plenty of activities nearby.

by reviewer69178640 on Oct 8 2016 20:31

The hotel was nice, clean and the staff friendly. the food in the Bar and at breakfast (especially the hot food) was disappointing , the choice for the price was poor.

by Mark on Sep 27 2016 10:58

Stayed 2 nights for a family weekend away. Very happy with the hotel. Good value for money, clean and friendly staff. The bar food was poor (wafer thin over cooked steak sandwich etc). Also the hot tub was unavailable/out of service. Other than that a very nice hotel in a beautiful location.

by Lisa on Sep 20 2016 18:08

first day we arrived they got our booking wrong when we told them they gave us a apartment and when we went to bed that night there was blood on the sheet and we said it at the desk the next morning and they said that they would send in house keeping then the second night the boiler was making awful noises all night we rang the front desk and the night porter said to turn off the boiler we did this and the noise still continued would never stay here again

by Karen Duffy on Sep 5 2016 12:30

Great value and fabulous rooms. The food in the morning was great, the bar food wasn't great though. But that was partly bad choices on my behalf.

by Missella on Aug 21 2016 16:21

This was our second time to visit this hotel and as before we could not fault it. The staff are wonderful and can't do enough to help. We will return again.

by kelly family on Jun 12 2016 07:37
