It is by far one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed . It is only one of the places in the world that you can do falconry.. Also did some horse-backing ridng as well. There is also a great boat ride that goes around the lake. It is in the town where The quiet Man was filmed.... More

Absolutely beautiful castle, felt very at home. Especially enjoyed the afternoon tea where I was made to feel like a princess and not rushed at all. Also enjoyed walks around the beautiful grounds and my time in the spa was very much enjoyed

This is another difficult to rate experience. I've stayed here 3 time now, once in winter and twice in summer. Great hotel. Service is good, grounds are amazing. The rooms are just... 'ok'. Sure they are finely appointed and Queen Anne trimmings really lend themselves to the whole experience. But... they need more modern amenities. A fully stocked mini-bar with... More

We really wanted to love Ashford Castle. We had really looked forward to staying there after hearing so many good things about it. There are many good things about it--beautiful grounds, stunning rooms with all the latest electronic gadgets, and for the most part, excellent staff. However, they failed to do the one thing that is fundamental to a good... More

It's AMAZING in every way. From the moment you pull up to this beauty you feel like royalty. The service was impeccable! The castle has be completely renovated. The furnishings in my room...first rate! I was on the second floor and I would ask for a higher floor because they sold me a "lake view" and it was more like... More

For decades Ashford has always been the premier property in Ireland but since the new ownership of the Red Carnation Group has invested over 40 mill euro to completely renovate and redecorate the Castle is without question the ultimate of luxury and service in Ireland. (it just earned Top Hotel award by the Virtuoso Travel Group earlier this month). Excellent... More

What a joke! We tried to visit the castle last week.. When we drove up to the gates we were informed by the gateman that the castle was fully booked for lunch/dinner/ accommodation ... Even fully booked for a cup of coffee! We were rudely turned away from the gates. As we had driven quite a distance to visit the... More

I was here about a year ago... as a birthday treat.. amazing grounds.. & décor... got the feeling that the staff had been there for decades.. loved sitting on my own late in the evening... esp likes the Inglenook & the old Connaught Room

This hotel has some lovely rooms, and the service was good. We were a group of 6 and spent 3 nights, and ate at the hotel each day. The breakfast was good but all the other meals were very disappointing, all 6 people felt the same way. The falconry was wonderful. . So to sum it up 5 star hotel,... More

We stayed here on the second night of our honeymoon. This was our big treat, and it was worth every penny. We were greeted by friendly and welcoming desk attendants. Maria gave us a brief tour of the castle and showed us to our room which was lovely. She offered their welcoming cocktail of the day and said someone would... More
