Wonderful, spectacular so much to see and do. The movie Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara was made here in 1951. Afternoon was perfect, beautiful view of the grounds and lake. Can ride a horse, take a falconry lesson, play a game of golf.

I wish I could give this hotel 10 stars - it certainly deserved it. We visited the castle during the first week of January, and from the moment we were greeted by the front gate staff, it was a visit set apart from all the rest. I have travelled Europe extensively, and never have I felt more respected and at...

We stayed at Ashford for 2 nights in the family suite. The home and grounds are nothing short of phenomenal. We adored our daily visits with the Wolfhounds, were fascinated by the falconry walk, and truly enjoyed the educational boat tour. The staff was 1st class and really made you feel like you were a special guest. If we are...

Had the opportunity to have afternoon tea here last summer. It was magnificent. there where scones, sandwiches, tray bakes and a dessert, While it was expensive for afternoon Tea at approx. 38 euro a head I would still say it was well worth it as the food was delicious and the service was excellent in fabulous surroundings.
