Ashford Castle is a top notch destination in western Ireland. We were treated like royalty throughout our stay and the facilities are great. They could advertise that it’s used as a backdrop in the show Reign but I noticed it in the show and thought...More
Ashford Castle is absolutely stunning on a majestic point on the lake. You can understand why it was chosen the location of the castle 800 years ago! History comes alive. We enjoyed the walks and engaged in the ancient sport of Falcon hunting (not really...More

We had a two night stop here as part of our tour. Having never stayed at a castle we did not know what to expect. We arrived by boat and were escorted across the bridge by a piper up to the entrance where we met...More
This was for a weekend getaway with my wife and it did not disappoint. The staff were courteous, the food was amazing and the room was at a very high standard. Better than a number of 5 star locations I have stayed in within Ireland.

The atmosphere in the castle is stately and elegant but also friendly and accommodating! I don't know that I would take children there that are quite young as they may not appreciate the decor and furnishings which are period and very lovely. There are areas of cushy comfortable furnishings where one might sit for music presentations or reading that are cozy and relaxed. The pool area is quiet and formal and not a place whereI should bring rambunctious children who might prefer a more lively setting. Patrons seem to be seeking quiet and privacy. There are bed and breakfast accommodations in the area that would still give you access to castle visits that might be easier with children.
The castle is so unique and well preserved, and must be handled with a certain care. Every staff member is very welcoming and able to assist with anything needed with grace and smile. Nothing stuffy or rigid at all. Just respectful. Of course, ask a travel agent familiar with the setting and also, ask the hotel for suggestions before you totally eliminate a stay there with young ones. Might work out just fine.
