Ashford Castle



Begin your royal adventure when you enter through the 800-year old castle's stone gates known as Ashford Castle in County Mayo, Ireland. Discover delicious cuisine, exquisite interiors, a bounty of estate activities, and a state-of-the-art spa, all managed by a passionate team.

This former home of the Guinness Family is now Ireland's top hotel destination and one of the world's best hotels. This luxury hotel is truly exceptional in every sense and their guest experiences.

About Ashford Castle

The remarkable Ashford Castle was rescued from ruin by Red Carnation Hotels. After the recession hit, this ancient castle was in a state of disrepair. Red Carnation Hotels bought it in 2013, and it was painstakingly restored to its current glory.

The team of Ashford Castle is proud to be part of this part of Irish history. The castle offers many amenities, such as the billiards room and a cinema and other options like the library.

On the grounds, you can enjoy traditional experiences like falconry, horse rides, and archery. However, if you're looking for something more modern, look for bike rides, zip-wiring, and salmon fishing along with the River Cong, among many other offerings.

Be sure to visit the surroundings since much of the grounds have been left wild or have retained their old style, such as the manicured gardens maintained by a gardener's team.

The grounds are one of the biggest attractions for Ashford Castle, and a tour is sure to be enlightening. Be sure to ask about the castle's ancient history to understand the 800 years of Irish history this castle has witnessed.

This hotel has been heavily compared to Ballyfin. Ballyfin won "Best Hotel in the World" from Condé Nast Traveler in 2016, while Ashford Castle won "Best Hotel in the World" from Virtuoso in 2015. Either hotel is a fantastic experience as a 5-star hotel should be.

Rooms and Suites

The 83 rooms, suites, and the Cottage on the grounds represent the traditional elegance and beauty found at Ashford Castle. However, an extensive refurbishment has made many of the rooms and suites a lovely combination of the castle's original features. This leads to modern luxuries geared at keeping your stay comfortable without sacrificing the feeling of staying in a real castle.

Each room or suite has its unique style, so you are sure to find one to your taste available. You can find meticulous attention to detail in works of art and antique furniture. Sumptuous fabric such as custom carpets and bespoke beds with Egyptian cotton linens that you can admire under the feature lighting will also be a wow factor.

Expect modern touches like power outlets by the bed and USB ports for charging your devices even without an international converter if you're coming from somewhere with a different style of plug. A panel on the wall controls the modern amenities like underfloor heating and lighting so that you won't freeze when in the marble bathroom with a large tub.

Make sure you request a room that will suit your taste. Some rooms retain much of their original look, and many might feel the rooms are overdone even though they match fashions from centuries past.

For those who travel, leisure is found in these rooms, and the spa is sure to restore them after a weary journey. Even the lowest level of rooms is still more spacious than many you will find, with the junior suite including a private sitting room from the bedroom. Again, this is better than what many comparable hotels offer as far as space.

Cuisine

When you stay at Ashford Castle, expect creative Irish cuisine that makes inspired use of seasonal ingredients from the West of Ireland along with extensive wine cellars sure to make any gourmet's stay a delight for their palate. Chef Philippe Farineau gives outstanding excellence no matter where you choose to dine.

Experience fine dining in the George V Dining Room's grandeur or relax in the comfortable casual dining offered at Cullen's at the Cottage or The Dungeon. Those looking for an afternoon tea can find it in the Connaught Room. Finally, enjoy a drink in the Billiards Room or the Prince of Wales Bar.

No matter where you choose to dine, you shouldn't be disappointed in the fantastic cuisine on offer. Be sure to book in advance so you can secure your table if you want to experience the fine dining available. They do book up quickly since not just hotel guests are dining at the George V Room.

The Spa

The spa found at Ashford Castle is dedicated to restoring balance and beauty through various treatments and spa journeys. Each is personalized for the individual guest by a team of skilled therapists. This commitment to their guests' well-being is achieved by blending essential ancient wisdom with modern expertise.

Guests can expect to leave the spa feeling pampered, relaxed, and nurtured. The many treatments on offer are sure to leave you refreshed. Even a stay in the relaxation pool can be an excellent way to unwind after a long day exploring the beautiful grounds of Ashford Castle.

A range of outstanding features can be enjoyed in the spa, such as three seashell chandeliers and an enthralling Tree of Life mural found alongside the relaxation pool. The state-of-the-art features include a revitalizing Hammam, a tranquil steam room, five exceptional treatment rooms, and a gorgeous terrace that offers a fantastic view of the calm waters of one of the largest lakes in Ireland.

The Spa and Fitness Centre offers the latest wellness innovations with PureFlow technology. This is the first of its kind found in Ireland. So be sure to visit if your travels have left you weary and worn down after the rigors of international travel.

Takeaway

With the team of Naill Rochford, Ashford Castle is a world-class destination sure to delight anyone who wishes to stay in an authentic Irish castle. So don't hesitate to book your room and expect a truly fantastic experience in the west of Ireland.
