I don't really have the words to describe this place, Downtown Abbey meets Harry Potter? (for those who knows this shows) you staying at a "real castle" with 800 years of history, the Guinness Family home, wonderfully renovated by the Carnation group, with the amenities of a modern hotel, with super friendly staff, gorgeous furnishings and yet not stuffy or...

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...

This place is amazing. We were there for 2 nights but the memories will last a lifetime. The staff seem to anticipate your needs and any requests are promptly attended to, going over and beyond, without suffocating you. The only word that can come close to describing the rooms is "sumptuous". The beds/bedding are the most comfortable I have ever...

Spending a night in this magnificent castle is a once in a lifetime experience. Our room was modern while maintaining the look of a 1,000 year old fortress. The service and food was fit for royalty. Only Ashford Castle was comparable.

Amazing! Everything about our stay was top notch. The staff is awesome and attends to your every desire. And the castle and grounds were breathtaking. I feel that everyone should try to experience a stay here at least once in their lives. I myself will be returning.

Ashford Castle has been meticulously restored, with no expense spared. The details are fabulous, if you are into such things as upholstered walls, beautiful drapes, preserved fine silver and opulent pillows. Our room, a lake view king, had a great view, but was very small in size for 785 Euro. The marble bath was beautifully done, with all the amenities,...

We arrived a little early but our table was already waiting for us. Every mouthful from savoury to sweet was delicious. Niall our waiter provided us with exceptional service. I could not fault our experience in any way. Can't wait to go back!

From check-in to departure, Ashford Castle was a dream come true. The accommodations overlooking Lake Corribe, the amazing beds, the technology to accommodate US electricity without converters, the food, the activities, it feels like you have entered another world not unlike what Downton Abbey must have been like. The service, food, attention to detail, and wine selection were "other-worldly". A...

Yes, this place is magical and worth the splurge. It is not cheap, but my goodness is it beautiful. From the hotel rooms, to the grounds to the food, everything makes you feel like you are living a fairytale dream. Definitely do Afternoon Tea and the Falconry School.

Superb! I can't say enough wonderful things about our highly memorable two night stay at Ashford Castle. The castle is a medieval castle located on the banks of loche corrib, just outside of Cong, a short drive from Galway. When the Tollman family purchased the estate in 2013, they invested quite a large sum of money in refurbishing the castle...
