We stayed at Ashford Castle for 2 nights as part of a longer trip to Ireland. My sister had recommended it as somewhere to visit for the setting and grounds (she had not actually stayed here only eaten) and having viewed the hotel site online I was expecting something truly special. Sadly it didn't seem to match our expectations. There... More

The grounds at Ashford Castle are exquisite and definitely the highlight. The interior is laden with 'faded grandeur' in every nook and cranny. With that said, I’d be curious to see how the interior will look once the renovations have been completed in 2015. The work taking place in the castle took away from our overall experience. Our room was... More

This was our second trip and it was better than the first (2008). The property is now owned by the Red Carnation Group and it is apparent that they are investing in the property. Service is top notch. Food is excellent. Rooms are very comfortable (beds are wonderful). Price was reasonable for a five star property. Don't miss the falconing... More

This castle/hotel has breathtaking views and is the oldest castle in Ireland. A bit dicey to navigate to from the Shannon airport ( we got lost in the roundabouts ) but once here it is well worth the effort. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with amenities. They have a host of activities to chose from as well. My... More

We booked a package including dinner and got a nice room with great view over the lake. Breakfast was excellent - try the pancakes. Dinner in the fine dining restaurant is also great. Service was very friendly and caring. A 15% service charge is always added to the bills. I recommend to book a hawk walk - we loved it... More

This place is so beautiful. Everyone is very nice and the Services we were provided were excellent! It was a bit pricey, but so worth it. We celebrated my husband's 30th birthday here. The only thing they did not do is make it a little extra special for him after I asked them to. But to their defense, they were... More

We stayed here with our friends as a one night splurge. The castle grounds are clearly the highlight here, otherwise be prepared for overdressed tourists. There were several large bus groups that were staying at the hotel when we were there. Nearly all American, like us, but annoyingly touristy. This of course cannot be avoided in places like these, but... More

Ashford Castle, Cong, the surrounding areas of Lough mask are quite simply some of the most beautiful places on earth. A walk through the woodland surrounding Ashford Castle, a little sit down watching the river flow in to lough Corrib with the sun gently setting is absolute bliss. Asford castle is very impressive with all the usual luxuries and splendour,... More
