This is amazing for any nights that you feel like dressing up and having a fancy dinner. I am a vegan and they had no problem accommodating me and did so with one of the most delicious meals I have ever had.

The George V Dining Room serves breakfast at Ashford Castle and converts to fine dining in the evening. Breakfast is a broad buffet as well as individually prepared hot dishes. Dinner is a classic continental menu with locally procured Irish ingredients. Service is superb.

There is only one menu with just 4 or 5 choices for each course. This is the menu for both guests and those who are only dining there.

The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe.
