Yes, this place is magical and worth the splurge. It is not cheap, but my goodness is it beautiful. From the hotel rooms, to the grounds to the food, everything makes you feel like you are living a fairytale dream. Definitely do Afternoon Tea and the Falconry School. I've done over 20 Afternoon Tea's in my time and this topped...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 March 2017 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...

Superb! I can't say enough wonderful things about our highly memorable two night stay at Ashford Castle. The castle is a medieval castle located on the banks of loche corrib, just outside of Cong, a short drive from Galway. When the Tollman family purchased the estate in 2013, they invested quite a large sum of money in refurbishing the castle...

First off the place is amazing. Amazing rooms, amazing grounds, amazing food, but if I am going to pay 600 euro for 1 night at a castle in ireland then I want to be treated like a king. You could pay 300 for a castle, with nice grounds and great food, there are castles all over Ireland. The reason why...

Decided to spend a couple of nights in Ashford Castle. There had vacancies as I checked on line but decided I would not book until I arrived. Couldn't understand the queue of cars driving up to the gates , reversing , then leaving, until I was top of the queue. An elderly man in green livery said there was a...

Everyone if you have not added The Ashford Castle to your bucket list, add it it is absolutely without a doubt the most fabulous place I have ever stayed. I cannot fault the service, the property, or the rooms. It goes without saying that the staff and the town of Cong are the friendliest and most accommodating of anywhere I...

What is there to say about this place!! The stay was wonderful, the help offered their services even before you realized you needed anything and the food was wonderful. The only negative thing was the rain and I don't know of anyone who can control that!!

The nearest major city is Galway, about 45 minutes away. Hotel: exquisite! Warm welcoming with friendly professional staff. Check in is efficient and informative. A welcome drink was offered. Room: very generous size. Our room overlooked the Corrib...

I'm not even sure where to start with this place. Everything was absolutely amazing and if I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Every single detail has been thought about. I stayed at this hotel with two other friends. As we drove up to the gates of Ashford we were greeted by a wonderful gentleman that made...
