Ashford Castle, Ireland
The magnificent five-star Ashford Castle is set in 350 acres, on the picturesque shores of Lough Corrib. Dating back to 1228, the former home of the Guinness family now enters a new chapter in its history, having been recognised as Ireland’s first Forbes five-star hotel. With 83 guest rooms, a wealth of activities and thoughtful touches, enjoy acclaimed Irish hospitality on a grand scale.
Each of the 83 rooms, suites and Hideaway Cottage at Ashford Castle represents traditional elegance and finesse. Following extensive refurbishment in 2015, many of the rooms and suites have been individually and lovingly designed, combining the castle’s original features with the latest modern luxuries. Some of the rooms and suites offer magnificent views over the picturesque lake Lough Corrib.
Enjoy award-winning gourmet food in the George V Restaurant, Traditional Lord and Lady Ardilaun's Afternoon Tea, a light snack in the Drawing Room, a casual dining experience in Cullen's at the Cottage or The Dungeon or pre-dinner drinks in the Prince of Wales Cocktail Bar.
While vacationing on the estate, the broad choice of activities will keep you entertained. Take on the challenge of the castle's nine hole private golf course, visit the Ashford Equestrian Centre, practise falconry or fish on the great lake and rivers that pass through the estate.
