My husband took me to Ireland for my 40th birthday day, and I fell in love! We spent four nights at Ashford Castle. It was an absolutely amazing experience. From the castle itself, to the amazing staff, we felt like kings and queens. Our rooms were beautiful, the food was delectable, and the staff went above and beyond to make... More

I have wanted to stay here for decades and finally did for 2 nights. Would recommend at least 2 nights there. Great building great people. If you take an equestrian ride and actually know how to ride a horse do not admit it or you will be given an old horse. The stables are run seperately but that was my... More

Not that this place needs one more excellent review but I am compelled. This hotel has it all. Beauty, history, opulence, service and luxury. We visited with four other couples and had an absolutely marvelous stay. We travel frequently and stay in great hotels but Ashford Castle is definitely on the top of the list. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I have stayed in many excellent hotels in the past but nothing as amazing as Ashford Castle. From the moment the guard greets you at the gate to every single person we encountered we felt like royalty. We were upgraded to a lake view room with a corner window which was not huge but just right and... More

Ashford Castle is the top of the list. It's expensive, but you pay for what you get. You are staying in a truly magnificent structure with lots of natural woodwork. The castle has been updated and it now has A/C. Good restaurants, I have stayed in many 5 Star hotels, but this one has the best breakfast you will ever... More

My wife and I had the most wonderful time here. The staff and the grounds are wonderful. You truly feel like your stepping back in time and experiencing Ireland at its core. We are both Irish and it's awesome to see Irish castles at its best.

Ashford Castle is a legendary property that recently was bought by the Tollman family from the great country of South Africa. The family has done a full scale investment and renovation so if you have been before 2013, the property is now utterly changed, to quote Yeats. I can only add in my praises for this place. Setting is spectacular;... More

It has to be seen to be believed. We came to Ashford Castel by ferry. You can really appreciate its grandeur that way. The grounds and accommodations are spectacular. We walked around the grounds. My husband took falconry lessons. There is nothing they don't have. If you get the chance, go to this hotel. It really makes memories.
