We stayed here for two nights during the Easter Holidays, the family getaway break - Mum, Dad and 4 boys under 6. After a four hour drive, we parked in relief and the view, with the sun shining on the lake immediately put a smile on everyone's face.The receptionist was lovely, showed us to our suite.Boys were delighted with their room, own en suite, robes, dvd's and tv on the wall - as were we when we saw our room adjoining, with an even bigger flat screen tv, beautiful furnishings. So plush, so relaxing. Champagne was there waiting for us, Housekeeping then arrived with cookies for the boys - personalised, and blinis for us -wonderful. Bar food menu varied and a proper menu for kids too.Breakfasts were a feast in themselves. Restaurant meal was five star, a babysitter was provided also, we had a boat trip on the lake.This departs from Ashford Castle, a short walk through the woods.All thoroughly enjoyed it. There is no leisure centre/pool in the hotel, but the weather was good and we all enjoyed the stay. Would love to come back ourselves as a treat. had no hesitation in recommending it, possibly if the boys were older it may not have been so entertaining, but it has certainly raised the bar in terms of standards for a family break. All of the staff were pleasant, talkative without being intrusive and calmly went about their various tasks in a most professional, yet approachable manner.
