Looking forward to visiting again!

I had the club sandwich here and it was absolutely delicious. The rest of my family got the mussels and the salmon and they said they were both absolutely scrumptious. The staff were so friendly and helpful, will definitely be coming again!

Cullens is a beautiful thatched cottage within the grounds of ashford castle. The decor inside is lovely with boats upturned from the ceiling. We had scones and tea but they serve sandwiches and hot food. on a good day it is nice to sit outside to look at the castle and the lake

We arrived back late from a long hike and went to Cullen's for a quick lunch. Since there were very few people there, we had excellent service and the menu, though limited, offered enough choices that we were both satisfied.

We actually ate dinner in the Dungeon and it was fun! The food was fantastic! The ambiance is medieval, perfect for a castle!

While staying at Ashford Castle we had dinner here. Food was excellent as was the service. Strategically located right out the front gate of the castle.

Fabulous food, great prices, and an amazing attentive staff helped make this one o the highlights of our trip here. Children's menu is a mini version of th adult menu, thankfully offering more than just sausages and chips. Our two year old loved th chicken and the crayons I he was given. Our server, Lorna, displayed his scribbled drawing before... More

We stayed at the Castle and dined here. Of a party of four we all loved our entrees, chicken and fish and ribs, all excellent. The rice pudding and brownie sundae for dessert were great. Food was well cooked, came to the table hot, the appetizer bread all came warm as well. It is quiet inside. Just a great place.
