The old stables building was initially used for the housing of the carts and carriages of the main house, but was latterly a working farm which fed the hotel most of its dairy produce years ago. It is now our beloved Stables Spa and houses a range of luxurious leisure facilities. Upstairs in the spa we have the Balcony Bar with access to the first floor panoramic balcony overlooking the golf course and the Firth of Lorne. Next door is the Veranda Restaurant offering lunch from 12.30pm - 14.00pm daily - a combination of light healthy snacks and the best local produce.
Working out in the mini gym located on the ground floor of the Stables Spa building could not be more inviting. Enjoy exclusive views over our 9 hole golf course and Lismore Island as you work out on the 5 fitness stations, including cross trainer, tread mills, rower and cycle. In addition, there is a free standing multi-purpose weight centre along with fitness balls, to help you maintain your fitness regime whilst away from home. The gym is small and compact but makes for a great work out as part of your stay at Eriska.
Alternatively, make use of the island's outdoor grounds for your morning/evening run or vary your training program with tennis, badminton, bowls or just a kick around football session with the family in the new Indoor Leisure Facility, located a short walk from the Stable Spa building (advanced booking required). Whatever your fitness level, we have sports facilities to help maintain your fitness targets and burn off some of those calories.
The indoor sports hall is open year round for a whole host of activities and functions. Hotel Guests benefit from complimentary access to the sports hall, booked through our Spa Reception for one hour sports sessions 7 days a week. Sports equipment can be hired from our Spa Reception at a nominal cost - please ask at reception for further details. Activities available inside the sports hall year round include; tennis, table tennis, badminton, 5-a-side football and bowls.
