Great location and views over lake Corrib. Stunning interior. Good food, but not five star. Room and bathroom very small for an expensive hotel. Staff are really lovely, thanks to David at reception, Mark and Megan at the bar and Clara at breakfast. It's not top five star quality on the food and service. Though we did enjoy our weekend...

Excellent accommodation and staff,superb food in the George v restaurant. Tour of the wine cellar with wine tasting was interesting. Only downside was the spa, it was average, my wife got a totally different treatment than the one I had booked for her! The attitude of the spa staff was not 5 star rating!! We will be returning very soon...

Arriving at Ashford Castle feels like you stepped through a movie screen and into a fairy tale! Be prepared to catch your breath. It is the stuff dreams are made of. Go inside and it gets better by the second. I was constantly feeling like I was dreaming. There isn't enough room here to describe it all, so I will...

We stayed here for my husbands birthday last year, and it was lovely. The castle itself is beautifully appointed, and the grounds are amazing. We would highly recommend the falconry and boat excursion. The town of Cong is quaint and charming, with a creek running through it. We loved our stay and will one day return with our children.
