Lough Allen Hotel
As its name implies, this sprawling and contemporary 4-star hotel sits on the southern shore of Lough Allen at the edge of the idyllic village of Drumshanbo, known for its rich musical traditions. It is off the usual tourist track, but well worth a detour for a relaxing and pristine setting. The 59 guest rooms and 24 two-bedroom suites are contemporary in design, and many have balconies overlooking the lake or Sliabh an Iarann mountain. Facilities include a restaurant, bar and leisure centre with swimming pool, gym, steam room, sauna, outdoor hot tub, and a spa.
