Cong is a place you go for peace and relaxation, well away from the city. The grounds of the castle, the nearby town, and the views of Lough Corrib are stunning. The Lodge at Ashford Castle is a luxury hotel, with great character, wonderful facilities while still providing modern feel. We were there over Christmas, the decor, food and atmosphere...

Someone mentioned The Lodge so we figured next...

I was recently the best man at a wedding in this venue. The venue is amazing, lovely views and grounds, fabulous food but the staff make the place. They couldn't have been more helpful in all respects. Smile on the faces and got to whatever needed to be done.

Ashford Castle & grounds are well known internationally. The Lodge affords an affordable taste of the splendour the Castle itself offers. The Lodge provides an historic feel with a relaxed atmosphere. Our event was a dinner for 20 in an upstairs private room, which allowed for convivial conversation around a large table, our award presentations and even a sing/song. The...
