Booked in on Friday and stayed for two nights, as luck would have it we didn't snare a duplex but it made no odds, the room was amazing. The staff on reception were very helpful and even managed to blag some batteries when my camera died mid meal. The food was pure class and the lamb cooked to perfection. The... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday - a couple of nights and a fine meal in Wylde's. From the warm reception we received throughout our stay from everyone, we felt really welcome. Our room, in the main house, was very comfortable, large enough, and quiet. The bed was first rate, and the bath was very nice. Decor was bright and refined,... More

I've stayed at Ashford Castle a couple of times and now at The Lodge. I was really looking forward to returning this time and I wasn't disappointed. Apart from the amazing location, grounds, buildings, facilities it's especially the staff that make this the best in the world. Everyone from the painter to the Maitre D has one agenda...to make the... More

This hotel was quite the surprise! On arrival the friendly receptionist took us to our room - which upon entering we literally gasped; spread across two floors it is welcoming, well furnished and very luxurious. The grounds and views are fantastic and you can discreetly see the improvements the new owners are implementing. The staff are friendly and courteous, we... More

One of my dreams was to stay in a real castle one day..... I could not afford a room in the real Ashford castle, but the lodge is as good as the real thing! Exotic furniture splashed all over, creating a castle-like space. Castle personnel exeptionally friendly and capable. Spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, fit for a king! My room... More

My friends and I stayed at this wonderful hotel for the weekend and what a magical experience!! From the genuinely friendly service to the absolutely delectable food, this is by far one of my favourite hotel experiences. We enjoyed a dinner in the Wildes restaurant on our first night and even though we arrived slightly later than anticipated, we were... More

Stayed here for one night for a wedding. Room was spacious and beautifully furnished. Our room was accessed via the courtyard. Views from outside and from the restaurant towards the lake are gorgeous. Breakfast was a mix of cooked to order plus cold buffet. The restaurant was very busy for breakfast, so there was a wait for both a table... More
