Leading up to our dinner experience at George V last night we were quite excited. The reviews for food and service sounded wonderful and it seemed a perfect send off on our last evening in Ireland. The trip was my treat to my mother to celebrate her retirement from forty years of nursing. Service in George V is wonderful. The... More

Food was very good but not quite Michelin in terms of overall experience. Dining room is highly ornate as you may expect from such a castle. However, the room is vast and we felt a little lost in a sea of tables as the restaurant was quite quiet during our visit. Wine was good and recommended ones go well with... More

With a really special anniversary to celebrate we chose the venue very carefully. Ashford Castle has for a long time been our favourite destination, but under comparatively new ownership would it still be of the highest standard? It turned out to be better than ever and nowhere more impressive than in the GeorgeV dining room. The food, most of which... More

We dined here on Tuesday night and will say the service, wine selection and food choices are excellent! The food was great but not what I would expect for a Michelin rated restaurant. Disappointed . Again service was exceptional!

George V did not disappoint. Our party of six had a lovely table at a window to experience a four course meal (mine with wine pairings). Each course was delightful, from the partridge breast with risotto starter to the trout amuse bouche to the lamb main course and on and on. I was reluctant to order a red meat dish... More

Don't eat all the delicious bread provided or you wont have space for the very nice food. Very attentive service, and some of the dishes were excellent. Great for a special event

I dined in George V dining room last month. After requesting the bill it became apparent there was a problem with their card machine.After much embarrassment we agreed that they could take the sum out the next day we left. The following morning I checked my bank account to ensure the transaction had been processed only to find that the... More

If you are staying at the Castle, it should include the fine dining in The George V Room (make sure to make a reservation before you arrive if possible, to assure the availability). Although it's a bit pricey, the food is excellent, and so is the service! We ate at the Dungeon at the Castle on another night, and really... More

During our stay, we had dinner in the Castle. Let me say, we knew it was not going to be inexpensive, but if your staying there, it is worth the experience. I suggest making a reservation. You need a jacket and tie for men, therefore, women should dress accordingly. We started out with champagne, 100 Euro. Ouch! Has some different... More

We had breakfast and it was ridiculously expensive for what was offered, and that was not very good. I'd say, skip it and go into Galway for dinner.
