We are blessed in many ways, and getting the opportunity to stay in the world’s most beautiful hotels is definitely one of those blessings. Lough Eske is a picture-perfect-romantic-getaway-hotel just over the border in Ireland. In fact, it’s a castle with huge fireplaces, a fantastic spa – that uses local produce for their creams – and rooms that could cover our complete Amsterdam neighborhood.
Well, almost. You would expect an old antiqeue-style interior, but they chose comfort and luxe over old, with softness surrounding your whole room. From the colors and the carpet to the kingsize bed. Even more spectacular than the castle are its surroundings. Woods, rivers, lakes and a beautiful beach. But more about that next time! For now, we opt to stay inside with a nice glass of red wine next to that gigantic fire. Aaah!
