We splurged for a night and stayed at Ashford Castle and it was awesome. It was fun to explore the castle and the grounds and I highly suggest afternoon tea. I am still dreaming of lemon curd and fresh scones. Our room was spacious, high tech, and luxurious. We were on the first floor in the old castle section and... More

Everyone, from the concierge, Sean, to our waiters the gracious Martin, Niall and Bridgee, to name a few, made us feel like very special guests and part of the... More

Staying at the Ashford was like being in a movie. Oh, wait - it *was* used in the TV series 'Reign'. What a gorgeous place and everything about it is top-notch. The rooms, the spa, the quality of service and every meal and beverage consumed there was fantastic. The rooms are beautifully appointed with comfortable beds and thoughtful extras such... More

The Castle and grounds are spectacular and the staff is incredible. Ashford Castle is not to be missed. If this isn't in your budget, then splurge, because it's worth every penny. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

For me it was love at first sight... I loved everything about Ashford and was so to leave. While the Castle, the surroundings and the rooms are fabulous, I thought the Staff made it even more attractive. They are such an asset, nothing was a problem. A special mention for Goran in the Dining room for breakfast, he was so... More

I visit Ashford many time a year as I live locally - usually for lunch. There is a huge difference since the hotel was taken over. No longer a bit tatty - very luxurious indeed. The staff are simply excellent - welcoming, friendly and service is excellent!

The facilities themselves are very special and all recently updated to the highest standards. But the staff is even more wonderful. To a person, they all make you feel welcome and special. From the welcome from the gate guard, to the bellman, to the front desk manager who escorted us to our room, to the maids in full costume officiously... More

The staff is great, the beds are comfortable and grounds are gorgeous. The Red Carnation group recently spent a lot of money updating the hotel and therein lie the issues. The room door and bathroom door are extremely hard to open from the inside. If you have any issues with your hands you may get stuck and have to call... More
