Lough Erne Resort’s eye-catching Halfway House was officially opened by Lough Erne’s touring professional golfer Rory McIlroy last month and has quickly established itself as possibly the best Halfway House in the world.

With open kitchen, seating 34 persons inside and a further 12 persons on the veranda, the stunning Halfway House is situated directly behind the ninth green, with views over The Faldo Course and Lower Lough Erne. It is a departure from the traditional log cabin style of refreshment facility.

Instead Lough Erne has produced a fully-equipped purpose-built dining experience. The refreshing concept also allows golfers to place their food orders in advance as they play the award winning Championship Faldo Course.

During the day, the advance food ordering means the light bite is ready when golfers complete the first nine holes, thereby helping to maintain a steady pace of play on the course, while demonstrating the kind of attention to detail that characterises the degree of service that Lough Erne Resort offers to all its guests.

Such thoughtful and innovative touches confirm the growing awareness throughout the world of golf, that Lough Erne is destined to become one of the major golfing destinations in the world, because of its beauty and quality of challenge that has already suggested it as a possible European Tour venue.

It is located in The Gateway to North West Ireland with easy flight connections from Belfast, Dublin or Sligo, as well as ferry services from Holyhead or Stranraer to Dublin, Larne or Belfast. And while the quality of golf provides an unforgettable experience, there is much else to discover at The Resort set alongside the lakes of Fermanagh, including Fly Fishing on the Lough.

The luxurious hotel accommodations and lakeside lodges, which offer Chef and Butler services and guests can also enjoy The Thai Spa and the renowned Irish Whiskey Bar to add to their abiding memories of Lough Erne Resort.
