Every superlative I was going to use in my review seems to have been used, so I will simply say that I agree with most of what has already been said. The grounds are spectacular, the rooms are sumptuous and the service is extraordinary. Very elegant, very formal. Our room had a lovely view of the water and the bridge... More

We recently spent four nights at Ashford Castle in Cong, County Mayo, Ireland. This was a family vacation with six adults and a one year old. Everything was absolutely perfect at Ashford Castle. After driving for six hours touring Killarney, Lahinch, and the Cliffs of Moher, we arrived tired and a bit disheveled. We were warmly greeted by the doorman... More

Our one-night stay at Ashford Castle was the high point of our 8-day Insight Vacations bus tour of Ireland. The tour company made it an incredibly special experience, as we arrived by boat to be greeted by a bagpiper. The grounds are impeccable with a number of different activities, but what really made our stay (beyond our sumptuous room) was... More

This place needs no introduction, if your reading this it's because you want to experience the worlds best castle hotel, and it certainly is that. Ashford castle is set in immaculate grounds and the castle itself is as regal as it gets with the exception of my mate Wills grans house. I had a lake side suite, which was opulent... More

Incredable place. Castle and grounds are first rate. Service and food were amazing. I can't say enough about Ashford. We all loved watching The Quiet Man in the cinema then playing a round of pool in the Billard Room. Would love to return.

What a breathtakingly beautiful castle! We were in Ireland for a week and stayed 2 nights at Ashford Castle. We didn't want to leave. The room was beautiful, the service was excellent and we can't wait to come back someday. Next time we visit Ireland we will be sure to stay at least a week here at Ashford Castle. We... More

It doesn't get better than this. The rooms are exquisite. The staff is phenomenal. You've got to try high tea... Unbelievable! The grounds are perfect for quiet strolls. Gotta say this is the most fabulous place I've ever stayed.

It is a privilege indeed to be able to stay in such a unique and luxurious setting. The largest castle in Ireland, with its 350 acres of property is expansive yet extremely welcoming. With only 48 rooms, there is still a feeling of intimacy. The service is unparalleled and the food, as in much of Ireland, is delicious and beautifully... More

Wonderful experience at Ashford Castle! Felt like a princess in a beautiful castle with my prince beside me. Treat of a lifetime especially since my sister and brother in law were traveling with you. Extra special. Don't pass up the falcon walk!
