Had the pleasure of waking up here on St. Patrick's Day. I think we have had the oldest room in the hotel and it was lovely with heated floors and towel bars in the upstairs (yes it had a flight of stairs) spacious bathroom. The grounds are lovely, the hotel is charming, service was excellent. Breakfast on St. Patrick's Day...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago 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...

Whereas castle refurbishments so often get it wrong, Ashford Castle got it spot on. From the mirrors in the bathrooms to the tassels in the Drawing Room, each and every detail in every room has been meticulously chosen to create an atmosphere of pure luxury and indulgence. It's quite simply the most beautiful property renovation I have ever seen. The...

I don't even know where to start. The entrance onto property was so grand, the gate keeper introduces himself and prepared you for an incredible experience. Everyone here is trained for 6 Star service. The Castle is maintained to perfection, and the grounds are exceptional. This is truly a Castle experience, and a bucket list type of visit. Like the...

No words to describe this beautiful place. On arrival at the gate we were warmly welcomed, and again at the main reception area. The drive through the grounds to the main castle is stunning, with views of the river and nearby islands. Check in is prompt and efficient, and the staff welcome everyone by name, which makes you feel very...

This was our first time to Ashford Castle and boy what a treat. Friendliness and service is top notch and as we were celebrating a significant birthday they notched it up even further. Housekeeping staff left a 'happy birthday' pillow and a present of wine glasses when we arrived back after dinner, it was a lovely touch. One thing to...

I've stayed at many 5 star accommodations around the world - which I'm mentioning because I have a comparison - and this ranks at the top of the list. Although our family arrived during a rainy spell, it was grand and breathtaking. The level of service is impeccable. Once you check in, you're lead on a brief tour of the...

Stayed for two nights over St. Patricks Weekend - wonderful friendly irish welcome from start to finish. We met the friendliest staff ever in all our travels.
