I wish I could give this hotel 10 stars - it certainly deserved it. We visited the castle during the first week of January, and from the moment we were greeted by the front gate staff, it was a visit set apart from all the rest. I have travelled Europe extensively, and never have I felt more respected and at...

Went with my new hubby for a little minimoon in January last!! Have to say the place is out of this world- from the guard on the gate of the grounds to the friendly concierge to the mulled wine on check in everything before check in was perfect!!!!

We stayed at Ashford for 2 nights in the family suite. The home and grounds are nothing short of phenomenal. We adored our daily visits with the Wolfhounds, were fascinated by the falconry walk, and truly enjoyed the educational boat tour. The staff was 1st class and really made you feel like you were a special guest. If we are...

Had the opportunity to have afternoon tea here last summer. It was magnificent. there where scones, sandwiches, tray bakes and a dessert, While it was expensive for afternoon Tea at approx. 38 euro a head I would still say it was well worth it as the food was delicious and the service was excellent in fabulous surroundings.

An absolutely stunning property. My family & stayed here in Aug-2016. From our arrival to our departure, the staff, service, and accommodations were top notch!!! Our arrival began with a tour of the castle - which you will definitely want as the additions to the original property have complicated the transitions from one area to another (not insurmountable - but...

My girlfriend and I are quite acquainted with the Ashford Estate, having stayed numerous times at their sister hotel (The Lodge) and dined at Ashford Castle. This time, after our annual trip to SE Asia, we decided to mix things up and stayed at Ashford Castle. We were not disappointed! We stayed just 1 night due to our own constraints....
