Have been here before and hence my reason for returning was to relive my experience. Just didn't hit the same level I'm afraid. Had to wait for our room to be ready. Not acceptable when you are after driving for almost 3 hours. Bar was covered in dust where a basket display with wine in it hadn't been lifted to...

As you approach the Lodge the outdoor area is beautifully lit up with lights in the surrounding trees. It makes for very romantic views and evening strolls. The staff are warm and welcoming. The Lodge is decorated boutique style. It...

Booked a overnight with dinner. Room was really nice and the food was excellent - the chef is full of surprises. Spent the next day out walking around the hotel woodlands and around Cong village which is a lovely little village.

We spent a weekend at this lovely hotel recently.The room was really nice and the food in both the bar and Wildes Restaurant was excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient and the grounds around the hotel were splendid.

Just back from a fantastic weekend here. It was about 8 years since my last visit, and As I knew it had changed hands since I had last been there I was worried it mightn't have been to the same high standard- but I needn't have been. It was a Christmas present for my other half and we were on...

Great Hotel, Staff and good is excellent. Rooms are modern, clean and very comfortable. Very good value for money. The only improvement would be the service in the bar. Restaurant staff are very knowledgeable and well informed as to the menu and explains it very well. We will definitely return.

We only stayed one night, a Saturday, but were there for almost a full 24 hours: check out time is not until 12 noon. Really a stay at the Lodge and its sister (or probably more appropriately mother) hotel, Ashford Castle, should be for a minimum of two nights to get the benefit of the rest and an appreciation of...
