Stayed in this hotel as part of a wedding and I cannot wait to get back! The staff truly make you feel like royalty, and the castle itself is absolutely breathtaking. Food is to die for and the boat tour is also something I'd highly recommend. Ashford is everything you want from a 5 star experience and more. Worth every... More

I spoke to the waitress about the incredible afternoon tea we had just eaten. She then quietly arranged for me to visit the kitchen to learn how to make some of the cakes! What was so spectacular was that it was the opening day of the hotel. The Taosiach (Irish President - poor spelling!) was visiting and yet they made... More

We were in Ashford Castle for only one night, July 19th, after having visited the Knock shrine. The only word to describe it was - WOW! First, the setting is breathtaking, as it sits at a narrow bend in Lake Corrib. It's a huge grounds, with very extensive sculptured walking paths and forest trees allowed to grow where it didn't...

I was here with my boyfriend for just 1 night, and it made such an impact I'm still longing to go back and visit. The grounds are incredible, you know you're somewhere very special when you're walking around or doing the cycle tours. The staff are exceptional and attentive. The drive from the gates to the castle winds through the... More
