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...

I wish I could name all of them but every single one of them were warm friendly and very genuine. We had dinner in Cullens on the first night and again the staff...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in September 2016. What an amazing experience. Great service, extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Extremely comfortable rooms. There was so much to do and enjoy. The falcon experience is well worth the money, and horseback riding was fun as well. The food was absolutely fantastic, the gardens were amazing to walk...

I stayed at Ashford Castle for a 2 nights midweek break with my boyfriend. It was simply amazing, we were treated like royalty, with a level of service I had never experienced before in Ireland. The castle's interior is plush and welcoming, and we loved exploring the library and the other different areas. The bedroom was amazing and equipped with...

We stayed at Ashford Castle in Hideaway Cottage when alternative arrangements fell through. It was a last minute booking made about an hour and a half before we arrived. Despite that, staff were superb, even checking us in at the cottage itself (you can drive right to your front door and park on your private jetty). It is a converted...

From the moment you drive (or are driven in one of Ashford's fine deluxe cars) on to the property, you know you'll be in for a special time. The grounds are alive with activities..fishing, falconry, riding, climbing, garden walks....all in a pristine setting. And oh, the CASTLE! This is luxury....every room uniquely designed and appointed by legendary hotelier Bea Tollman....
