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.

Our arrival began with a tour of the castle - which you will definitely want as the additions to the original property have complicated the transitions from one area to another (not insurmountable - but...

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....
