Ashford Castle

County Mayo, Ireland

What is not to love about Ashford Castle? Standing sentinel on the shores of Lough Corrib for over 800 years, magnificent Ashford Castle occupies an estate of such spectacular proportions, that spending any amount of time in its grounds creates indelible memories. Once home to the Guinness family and today a multi-generational resort, Ashford Castle is lovingly run by a team that passionately cares about every single guest. The estate encompasses 83 rooms and suites, a sumptuous spa and gym, an equestrian center, and a brand new leisure complex, with 20 activities on site to include Ireland’s First School of Falconry, a nine-hole golf course, an array of restaurants and bars, an authentic wine cellar and even a luxe cinema.

Defining Factor

The castle is full of character and characters – The stately architecture of Ashford Castle set against a spectacular backdrop of forests, lakes, and mountains has witnessed enormous change since its foundation nearly 8 centuries ago. Ashford Castle is more than a luxury hotel – it is a rare and precious fragment of Irish history. Everywhere you look, you see beautiful furnishings, antique pieces, and works of art. However, it is the people of Ashford that make your stay memorable – going above and beyond and offering genuine and generous hospitality. No request is too large, no detail too small.
