By far, the finest hotel in all of Eire. Many visits over the years with spouse and family and every visit is like coming home to see old friends. The BEST of the BEST. Its hard to imagine how Ashford could improve.

I can’t recommend Ashford Castle highly enough. It has it all- it’s set in stunning grounds, it has great walking trails, the staff are some of the best I’ve ever encountered (truly, they couldn’t be more kind or helpful), our suite had an amazing view over Lake Corrib AND we got to walk the wolfhounds through the woods in the morning. We even got to watch a Christmas movie in their private cinema, complete with popcorn and pick&mix! A really special place and a wonderful experience. I can’t wait to go back.
