Lough Erne Resort Unveils Latest Phase In Multimillion-Pound Upgrade

The team at Lough Erne Resort – in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh – has announced the completion of the latest phase of a multimillion-pound upgrade programme.

This latest phase of a long-term investment commitment represents a greater focus on guest well-being and mindfulness.

It is part of Lough Erne Resort’s largest capital injection since it came under the management of US-based TRU Hotels & Resorts.

Natural Assets

As part of the programme, the refreshed interior was styled with the aim of reflecting the natural assets of the resort’s 600-acre private peninsula.

The design seeks to harmonise with the water, wild countryside, and landscaped grounds that surround Lough Erne Resort.


The 53 revamped luxury guest rooms, 25 luxury lodges, and communal areas were designed with this in mind.

‘Visual Impact’

“I really believe we have achieved that and have been successful in creating a wonderful interior colour palette that mirrors the glorious natural external tones and shades that envelop the wonderful hotel building and lodges,” said Ciara Ní Laoi, Irish-based interior designer.

“Lough Erne Resort is a truly unique and beautiful location, with the lake, in particular, playing such a huge role in the overall visual impact.”


Lough Erne Resort first opened in 2007.

The luxury destination features two championship golf courses, as well as a Thai spa and four restaurants, one of which is the three-AA-rosette Catalina.


‘Modern Regency’

“The resort has been truly transformed, with our former old-world interiors now aligning with the beauty of our countryside setting and the pursuits which we offer on Lough Erne,” said Gareth Byrne, general manager.

“Guest feedback has been really encouraging, with many referring to our freshly designed Garden Hall as ‘modern regency’, which makes us very proud.”
