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...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 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...

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...

I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. Although we were only there for one night I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an amazing experience. The staff goes above and beyond to make your stay memorable. My husband attended a falconry class while I got a massage in their onsite spa. We finished the day...

I had the pleasure of returning to Ashford castle but this time it was for a family wedding. With relations joining us from America, it gave me pride to show off such a beautiful piece of Ireland. Wonderful attentive staff and customer care sets this majestic castle apart from others. It's what will ensure that we will all return. Thank...

Ashford was my first stop on my visit to Ireland. What a wonderful warm place to start my journey. The property is a medieval castle that has gone through a number of different owners through the years. It is currently run as a top notch hotel in Cong, County Mayo, about one and a half hours from Shannon. The first...

Family of 4, kids 11 and 7. The castle and grounds are majestic, and the service by all staff members is excellent. Shane Brett from guest relations had reached out to us before our arrival to assist with the booking of activities, restaurant reservations, etc. He continued to look after us during our stay and was attentive through-out. All staff...

We had an amazing time. Lots of fun, warm, wonderful people. Very attentive staff who would seem to always remember our names. The grounds, rooms, service, beverages, and additional experiences were amazing. We are already planning our return trip!
