  • We came to the Ashford castle for the afternoon tea. I really enjoyed my time here, the castle is so beautiful, I felt like a royalty having tea. As in the afternoon tea, it's a bit pricey but I would say is once in a life time opportunity so is worth to try it out. Savoury treats are a bit smaller than what I've tried before, I wish they had a few more bites in to share rather than having too many desserts. Attention to detail is great, all servers are on top of their game, the entire place is very clean which I really like; the rest of the staff in the castle is also very friendly. Definitely recommended!
  • This place is too beautiful for words. The grounds are spectacular, the staff is so kind, I wish I could live here!!! The George V dining room is beautiful and food is great. The activities here are also lovely, and with so many gardens to explore there are so many great picture opportunities.
  • Beautiful castle and grounds and gardens. You are able to drive right in and visit the grounds by paying a guest fee. I wish we had planned to do a falconry experience as it looks very fun and interesting - next time!
  • One of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The accommodations are first class, the staff go out of their way, and the views around the property are breath taking. I am planning a trip to Northern Ireland and I am making it a point to return to Ashford Castle. This is a place you can't miss out. Hope to see you soon!
  • We had a lovely room with a lake view. We were treated like royalty. Every aspect of our stay was perfect including meeting the Irish Wolf Hounds , Cronin and Garvin. I wish we had stayed longer.
