What a lovely two days we enjoyed staying at the Lodge and exploring Cong and the grounds of Ashford Castle! The entire staff, starting with Niamh at Reception, were so friendly and helpful.

Hard to find fault in this Country Manor type Hotel on the grounds of Ashford Castle (to which you have some access). First class rooms (go for a 'Quay' suite), 2 great restaurant choices and what a breakfast! Add to that, down home hospitality from a Staff that knows what they're doing and how to do it. Beautiful grounds too...

Had a really lovely one-night stay in with dinner in Wildes. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food in Wildes was beautiful and our room was lovely and very comfortable. Very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. We also did Clay Shooting in Ashford which was really enjoyable with a great guide.

The Lodge is beautiful with stunning views. The accommodation is outstanding, each room is uniquely decorated to a very high standard. The venue was perfect for a wedding and felt very luxurious. Upon arrival my husband noticed the beds had down comforters and pillows, which the staff were happy to change, as I am allergic to duck feathers. The morning...

Beautiful surrounding and location. Arrived on a Friday for a quiet weekend. My wife and I had lunch and dinner here on the first day and found the service quite slow despite an empty restaurant. The staff were quite inexperienced. I'm now standing at a queue for breakfast for the past 15 minutes. Not good at all and not what...
