I have always wished to visit Ashford Castle. On a family outing last week we decided to visit and were planning on having either lunch or afternoon tea. On arrival at the gate we were advised it was €5 per person in the car to enter, which was perfectly fine. The first thing noted was the plastic red rose in... More

The heat last week in Kent was intense and I managed to get a stateroom in Ashford Castle. Last time I was here was 15 years ago and it has really changed.

Dear Niknoknoknik, Your review paints a picture of a most wonderful family holiday, which I am happy Ashford Castle was the setting for. How lucky you were to catch a salmon from the Lough, and how brilliant we were able to serve this for you on two occasions. Thank you for mentioning all the fabulous food and drinks you enjoyed...

The hotel, grounds and service are really impeccable. It is not crazy "stuffy/over the top" service one might expect at a 5 star place, but "comfortably flawless". We arrived a bit early and our room was not quite ready. At "official" check-in, it was still not ready, but they cheerfully upgraded us to a stateroom (#326). What an amazing view... More

Stayed here the final two nights of our five week trip through Ireland. It was a great capper to an amazing trip. Service is exceptional. The drive through the gates and up the long long drive sets the tone. Then the checkin process is high touch and welcoming. The staff member who checked us in shook our hands (even the... More

INCREDIBLE gardens, the castle itself, the rooms, the restaurants, activities... Just perfect!!! Ideal for a romantic getaway. The Cullen's cottage (a restaurant inside the permises of the hotel, only opened during the summer months) just perfect!!! The waitress, the menu, the food, 10 points!!

Ashford Castle puts all other castles in Ireland to shame. It is beautifully maintained, with staff that is unmatched and fabulous food. We arrived later in the afternoon and were warmly greeted by all of the staff from the man at the castle gate to the doorman and reception staff. When we were informed our room was not ready we...

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ashford Castle (two nights, four rooms). The staff was exceptional. The rooms were beyond even our high expectations and the grounds pristine. We took advantage of the falconry, clay pigeon shooting, the jaunting cart and horseback riding. All were terrific, though the falconry (the "Hawk Walk") was once in a lifetime great. We... More
