Had the pleasure of an overnight stay in Ashford over the last weekend the location of the hotel is absolutely stunning and we were very fortunate to get a room overlooking Lough Corrib which was just beautiful. The room was extremely well appointed and spotlessly clean, the attention to detail was second to none. From our welcome at the Gate... More

From the moment the gate keeper poked his head around the corner of his guardhouse, the experience my 90 year old mother, sister, wife and I had at the best Ireland has to offer could not have been imagined. Attention to every detail from check in to anything we needed was just perfect. Other castles speak of being a five... More

I've never been treated like such royalty! Upon arriving the staff was very accommodating and showed me to my room- which was not what I was expecting. It was nice- but nothing compared to the rooms I saw online. I asked for an upgrade, which I got- but for 300 euro more. It was worth it- 4 poster bed, bathroom... More

There is actually so much to do there. We did the cruise on the corrib which gives you fab views of the castle. When we go again we will def... More
