I'd like to think I'm fairly experienced having enjoyed a variety of hotels throughout the years, from at times basic hovels to top class 5 star establishments and everything between. Though as I get older, now mid 30s, I have a penchant for the latter. This brings me to Ashford Castle. It is no secret this location is not for...

Just visited Ashford Castle and must say it far exceeded all my expectations. Staff is unbelievably attentive, cordial and genuinely interested in its guests. The food is wonderful too. The castle is an eye popper and can not be described in words. It must be experienced. I have been all over the world and Ashford Castle rates as one of...

I came here very recently, having been dying to see the place. Walked through the grounds and had DELICIOUS afternoon tea. I've never met such kind, pleasant, warm, friendly, alert and enthusiastic staff. I could go on and on. The grounds are simply stunning. It may be expensive, but once you experience the castle and soak it all up, you...
