My girlfriend and I are quite acquainted with the Ashford Estate, having stayed numerous times at their sister hotel (The Lodge) and dined at Ashford Castle. This time, after our annual trip to SE Asia, we decided to mix things up and stayed at Ashford Castle. We were not disappointed! We stayed just 1 night due to our own constraints....

Cong is beautiful and Ashford castle is absolutely stunning. We stayed in the lodge which is a separate hotel on the castle grounds and the room we stayed in was huge and luxurious. It really was an amazing place and the walks were stunning, it has to been seen. People were fishing in the crystal clear river catching salmon. The...

We got engaged at Ashford Castle before Christmas and would like to thank all the staff from the gate-man that greeted us right through to the porter that brought our car around when leaving and everyone in between for making it an unforgettable experience. In particular I would like to thank events manager Shane Brett for going the extra mile...

Ashford Castle is without a doubt the finest hotel we have ever stayed in and deserves all its recent accolades From the minute we were greeted by Paddy and the concierge team on arrival we knew our three night stay was going to be special. Perhaps because we were repeat guests celebrating my birthday and our 35th wedding anniversary, we...

We just spent a few wonderful days in Ashford Castle with the family, and the recent renovations and improvements have made the Castle an even better place to visit. As usual the staff go out off their way to be friendly and helpful, but the Castle facilities have improved and the addition of a billiards room and cinema make the...

It might be that I was at a disadvantage, being Irish, where this hotel portrays an overly romantic and nostalgic view of Ireland. The castle and its surroundings were, of course, spectacular and our room was 'quaint'. The food was excellent and in particular we enjoyed the Afternoon Tea. That all said, there were elements that were less than satisfactory....

This place is amazing, from the second we drove through the entry gate we were in heaven - we didn't want to leave! The rooms are simply spectacular they still hold their old world charm whilst having all the latest technology you could possibly want. The food is spectacular, we had breakfast, lunch in the drawing room and dinner in...
