My dad had stayed at Ashford Castle with his own father, some 40 years ago, and had loved it. So when we planned a family trip to Co. Mayo this summer, we knew we wanted to have a special dinner here, even though we stayed in Westport (about a 45 minute drive). Our evening in the George V dining room surpassed all expectations - everyone in our group of 9 voted this our favorite experience of our entire vacation! From the jaw-dropping approach to the castle, to the beautifully manicured grounds, to the elegant decor, to the wonderful food and impeccable service, we enjoyed every minute of it. Any request was cheerfully accommodated - for example, iced tea was not on the menu, but a pitcher of freshly brewed (and properly made, delicious!) tea was produced in short order, and much appreciated. One of the staff overheard us toasting Dad's upcoming birthday, and surprised him with a special dessert, complete with song and best wishes, and he was nearly moved to tears. Totally worth getting dressed up for, and worth the splurge!
