A family treat during these covid times .. From booking to our departure the service was nothing but exemplary. Ashford is known for being one of Ireland’s best properties. It is the staff that make your stay unforgettable- professional but personable . The small touch’s and attention to detail. Food and beverage excellent - superb meal in the George on both evenings . Thank you all at the castle for making my family feel very welcomed and looked after .

My wife and I stayed in Ashford Castle for three nights just before Christmas 2020 and was one of the best hotel stays I've had. There is something magical about this hotel, from the surroundings (it's a freaking castle after all) to the staff, who genuinely seem to love their jobs and looking after people. The food is amazing and the service is truly first class, even with the COVID restrictions in place it didn't detract from our enjoyment of this stay. I would highly recommend doing the hawk walk if visiting, it's an unusual activity for a hotel to put on. Tom our guide was so passionate about the birds and had incredible knowledge. It was a joy to be around these beautiful birds and to see them fly. This was our first stay in Ashford and I think the best compliment I can give it is that we've already booked our next stay in it, which we're really looking forward to.

By far, the finest hotel in all of Eire. Many visits over the years with spouse and family and every visit is like coming home to see old friends. The BEST of the BEST. Its hard to imagine how Ashford could improve.
