This is a really nice place to stay. The setting is beautiful, on the grounds around Ashford Castle and a wonderful view of the lough. It was relaxing and peaceful. The restaurant was really good. the service professional, again a fab view. The food was to die for, we were impressed with the menu and the 3 extra courses we got were very tasty. It was a really wonderful experience. The bedroom was large and well appointed and the bed big and comfortable. Cong is a nice 20 min walk and also you can walk around the grounds of the Castle or down to the small harbour. Cannot wait to go back and stay for more than the 1 night. Reccommend this place to anyone, we stayed here as a couple but there were families there too.

I recently got married at the Lodge and a lot of our guests were from overseas so many stayed 3-4 nights. It was fantastic to get married in such an idyllic setting, with amazing food, friendly & professional staff who were always on hand to ensure everything went smoothly (every day!) and really comfortable accommodation. All our guests were so complementary about the whole experience and it certainly gave them a great taste of hospitable Ireland at its best. I can't thank all the staff (without exception) enough for making our weekend so special and memorable!

Room Tip: All rooms in the hotel are of a very high standard so no one is likely to be disappointed. The lake view rooms really are spectacular!

We stayed on a 3 night package in August at a really attractive rate including 3 nights bed & breakfast, 1 dinner in the formal dining room,Wilde's Restaurant and another dinner in the hotel's bar, The Quay Bar. The hotel is now called Lisloughrey Lodge Hotel and sits close to the water, overlooking Lough Corrib.
The room was good and comfortable, well serviced throughout our stay. The bar is decent, not a pub experience and has more of a 'drawing room' ambience spread over a number of rooms of the original lodge building, but is good for an after dinner drink etc. One minor irritant is that the bar is very brightly lit, too many lights!
The real winner in Lisloughrey is the amazing food served up by the chef, Jonathan Keane, and his team. The dining experience in Wilde's restaurant is just brilliant. We had dinner here on 2 nights and on both occasions I opted for the Beef & Guiness for mains. This was a piece of flank beef from the shoulder that had been braised for 4 hours plus, served up with a Guinness reduction, sitting on top of a nettle risotto. It was simply superb! My partner had home salted cod on one night which was also amazing. Deserts and starters were equally as good.
Service throughout our stay was top notch, local and friendly.
The hotel has also included a boat trip on Lough Corrib as well as tickets to Kylemore Abbey and we really enjoyed both also. There are numerous activities available in the extended locality.
We cant wait to go back and if you like really good food, Jonathan Keane and his colleagues at Lisloughrey Lodge are more than worth a visit.

We recently got married in Lisloughrey Lodge so were lucky enough to have an excuse to stay and eat there on numerous occasions over the last year. Besides being the perfect location for a wedding its an amazing spot for a weekend away; the views over the Lough are beautiful, the grounds around Ashford are really enjoyable just to ramble around through and Cong is a lovely picturesque village.
I really couldn't recommend the restaurant and food in general highly enough. The Chef Jonathon Keane is a star. The staff were consistently so friendly everytime we visited, from the manager Niall and event coordinator Aoife down to all the bar and restaurant staff, no request was a problem.
(Alloting rooms to wedding guests is a bit like doing a really hard sudoku puzzle but Saskia in reservations made it look so easy! )
All the rooms are top class, lovely decor....highly recommend the suites for an added bit of luxury! Will definately be coming back for a visit again very soon.

Just back after a one night stay. Had a great time; funky bar, lovely rooms (not huge but cosy!) and a sumptuous meal in the restaurant. A 3 course meal was included in our stay but we also received 3 in between taster coursers which was a pleasant surprise; amuse bouche, soup en croûte and a neapolitan ice-cream of beetroot, honey & parsnip and parsley and caper flavours – interesting to say the least! The food was fantastic as was the service. Breakfast and lunch were also included but we were so full after the breakfast we opted for walk of the grounds instead of the lunch. The lady at reception was very apologetic that she could not refund us the cost of the lunch – but all in all for 2 people the total stay was €170 – great value.

Only negatives ( and these would be minor ones) is the breakfast was a bit haphazard. Service was slow and 30mins before end of service the mixed fruit was gone and wasn’t going to be replaced. Plates would run out and even though the kitchen was right beside you would have to ask for more. When you asked for more butter they would place the new plate on top of the old used one instead of taking it away. Not the end of the world but nearly like two different restaurants re service etc. Also when we were in the bar the evening before a lady asked for the bar menu to be told there was no bar food as a wedding was on. Surely they could have pre made some sandwiches or soup and had a limited menu. You are out in the countryside after all and a drive from any place else to eat.

For that it gets 4/5 instead of a full 5/5… I have to say though after staying a night in Ashford Castle last year Lisloughrey is no sloppy seconds – the castle is an amazing experience but here the décor is fresh and modern and honestly we felt the food was better – less pretentious, more affordable and in less formal surroundings – having said that a stay in Ashford Castle is a must, if only once! Residents in Lisloughrey can walk the grounds of Ashford (as we did) and book into the falconry or take the boat trip.
