At the end of our mother/daughter Ireland vacation, we had one night booked at Ashford Castle- and it just wasn't enough!!! The castle and grounds are beautiful, every staff person kind and sincerely courteous, it was simply exceptional. So sad we could not stay longer to really explore all Ashford has to offer!!!! However we had a wonderful evening watching...

Reviewed 13 March 2017 via mobile

Just returned from a three night break in the Castle, it is absolutely amazing! Hard to find the words to do it justice. The castle itself, the bedrooms and all the amenities are superb, but I have to say it is the staff that make the castle extra special. From the minute we arrived we were treated so well, the...

Ashford Castle is a beautiful building set in its own extensive estate. Both grounds and building are very well maintained. The staff are very friendly (in fact, over-friendly); I met one staff member who was quite natural in her chat and polite exchanges. This is a personal skill that rehearsing a few lines cannot replace. On arrival, check-in was very...

We stayed at Ashford Castle for 7 days in March of 2017. What a wonderful experience! I have stayed in some great hotels but never had the level of service that the staff at the Castle offered. We had one of our party come down with a cold and the Maitre d sent up a lemon drink that helped her...

While planning for a family trip, I really wanted to give my kids the experience of staying in a castle while in Cong. Ultimately, we decided to stay in Cong village and use the savings to participate in activities on the castle grounds, namely the incredible hawk walks offered by the falconry school. The staff helped me make those reservations,...

This place is too beautiful for words...but I'll try. Amazing gardens surround this old castle that is decorated inside like nothing you can describe. Each room is stunning and the food is fabulous as well. I think the most impressive thing about Ashford is the service...they cannot do enough for you. It is the most memorable place I have ever...

My wife and I treated ourselves to a night at Ashford Castle and wish we could have stayed longer. On arrival we were greeted with a welcoming drink while checking in and than a brief tour of the property. We were booked for a Falconry walk that afternoon and were not disappointed. Our handler had recently worked at "Wingspan" in...

Lovely castle but it's also a hotel so unless you are staying overnight I wouldn't go especially to visit. Everything is really expensive (soup of the day was cheapest thing at €9.50). You're better off heading to Kylemore Abbey. However, it is located in the village of Cong where "The Quiet Man" was filmed.

My husband, myself and my teenage daughter and her friend spent two nights in Ashford Castle which was definitely not enough time. This property is absolutely amazing. We had two rooms with a Lough Corrib view. Each room is decorated different and fully electronic. Our rooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfortable. The bathrooms have heated floors if...
