“Good, but not great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We ate at the George V while staying at the castle. The service was excellent and the overall experience was very good. However, I was just a little disappointed in the food. Don't get me wrong, it was quite good, but given how exceptional everything else is about staying at Ashford Castle, I expected the meal to meet that standard as well and it didn't. It was good, but not the over-the-top experience I expected. It may just be that my expectations were too high, but I've had better at less scenic places.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

I found the dining experience at George V to surpass all that I expected it to be - although much too formal for regular dining in my opinion, this would be a fantastic way to celebrate a special occasion.
