We have just returned after spending three wonderful nights at the Lodge at Ashford castle. As a treat we booked Lady Ardilauns afternoon tea in the castle on Easter Monday. To put in mildly not a five star event. When we arrived we were pushed in the bar served cold tea average food and charged one hundred Euros. It was... More

We enjoyed our stay here for our belated wedding anniversary, although reading some of the other recent reviews I'm a little disappointed we didn't get to stay in one of the recently refurbished rooms as some others have. I'm a little surprised, as I'm sure the hotel wasn't at capacity at the time we stayed, and one thing we did... More

I Really enjoyed my trip, the food was lovely, the staff were very friendly and helpful and it is just fabulous both inside and out! I went with my mother and friend and they both thoroughly enjoyed it also. I would really recommend it and would definitely go again!

We stayed here for two nights on our one week tour. It was so beautiful and a truly exceptional experience. The castle was breathtaking and the people were genuinely kind and helpful. We especially liked Michael, the young waiter in the Dungeon, the downstairs pub. He was fun to talk to and gave us a lot of information about the... More

Just back from a long weekend in ashford castle and we had a brilliant time. The building and grounds are visually stunning. The food was great and the general ambiance of the hotel is so relaxing. I went on two horse rides, one through the woods and one along the lake shore. They were both absolutely beautiful. There are so... More

The castle and the grounds are truly spectacular. Clearly there are ongoing renovations underway, however this did not really impact on our stay. What was most disappointing was that we arrived at 5pm after a long drive to find 1 of our 2 rooms were not ready. Reception could not tell us when the room would be ready, and waved... More

A wonderful step back in time on the outside, but not so "castle-like" on the inside. The inside smelled like a funeral home because of the flowers, the rooms were ok, but just expected more for the price.

On our Ireland trip we stayed in 3 different Castle Hotels. The Ashford Castle is the most enjoyable.During our stay,we were being treated like royalty, It has more exclusive feel Since only hotel guest is allowed at their property. I booked a Carib Lake room through American Express and was being up-graded to a two level suite with a lovely... More

Loved this place, amazing I mean AMAZING service. So friendly. So much fun. You have to do the falconry, it was one of the highlights of my trip and was so cool. I really loved this place. Only complaint is we stayed for 5 days and they don't change the menu and there's no real place to eat but the... More

I have given two stars to this hotel - one for the extremely pleasant and courteous staff and the other for the gorgeous surroundings. However, the five star offering itself is extremely lacking. Having booked three rooms for two nights at €270 per room per night and having stayed in many fiver star properties throughout the world at a similar... More
