We stayed before the recent renovations. The staff was friendly and the morning breakfast was incredible. We enjoyed just walking the beautiful grounds and my husband enjoyed the Falcons. It is an easy stroll to downtown Cong. We cannot wait to come back. We visited June 2012.

What a great hotel ! Magnificent setting with very manicured gardens and pathways. A river on one side and a lake on the other side make views very unique. The common areas are lovely and very castle-like. Our room for 2 people (423) was exquisite, with 3 bathrooms (yes !), but be aware that it is split-level with narrow stairs... More

From the moment we arrived at Ashford Castle till we left, the staff was very attentive, pleasant, and went above and beyond in every way. The castle and grounds were absolutely beautiful. Our rooms had recently been remodeled and were gorgeous with breathtaking views. Walking the grounds was one of the wonderful activities offered at Ashford Castle with the gardens,... More

What a wonderful time we had staying in an old castle. It is beautiful and the people that work there are wonderful. The rooms are large and the food was great I would recommend this to any one going to Ireland

This castle and its grounds are AMAZING! The castle is HUGE and quite a site to see! The grounds are kept up beautifully with a golf course and old bridge. We were glad we made the trip! We didn't go inside but the castle is now a hotel. We could have and should have spent more time here.

We ended our trip with a one night stay and it was well worth it! The staff was friendly and very accommodating, the grounds were well maintained, and the dining experience was stellar! We also got to see two Irish Wolfhounds brothers at play on our departure. Truly a memorable experience all around. Highly recommend a night or two...or a... More

This place has everything! From a boat ride through the lake with an amazing captain to flying Hawks in the forest during falconry. The rooms were spectacular and the dinner at king George V dinning room was the best. Everything about this is great for anyone, any age.
