Thanks to a special promotion last summer I was able to come to Ashford for 3 days in August. This was my first experience staying in a castle so I was quite excited about it. After more than a month of rain, the day I arrived was a gorjeous one and right away I got on the boat "Isle of Innisfree" (courtesy of Ashford) to visit the famous Christian monument in a nearby island.
My room was very beautiful but on a hot day with the windows not working well the night was horrible. But thanks to Catherine Kenny, she right away arranged another great room for me and problems were sorted out and I could have more air in the room. I'd like to say that the best thing of Ashford is Catherine Kenny who gives her life to the castle and its guests. Her kindness and dedication is very rare to find in hotels nowadays. She makes everything possible to help you and make sure you are fine. One can see that she loves her work and really cares about people. I was very moved with the warm greetings with my name on the TV screen when I first entered the room. I found that quite unique! The rooms are beautiful and beautifully kept, of impecable taste. The estate is very large and I had the chance to relax and sit on the fields and the river bank, have lessons at the Falconary School, and get to know Cong well. The breakfast was the best I had in Ireland and the staff was really great. I'll always cherish my memories there. The whole thing was quite an unexpected surprise to me and in a way like a dream come true.
