We really love dining in the George V dining room. Getting dressed up as a family for this meal was a new experience for the kids, which made it all the more special. My only gripe with the George V is that Ashford Castle doesn't insist on all gentlemen wearing a jacket & tie - this has always been a... More

Dinner here was spectacular. From the wild atlantic plate, rabbit, and soup we had to the most gorgeous beef and wild hake for our mains, down to our desserts and coffee, every bit was an experience to be had. For breakfast, there was an amazing spread and we ordered the traditional Irish breakfast and porridge. Same with dinner the night... More

This is truly a five star restaurant plus! As a resident of the hotel, breakfast is served in this dining room, and of course a wonderful dinner. The breakfast buffet is so extensive, surely something to please every palette, but if not, they have a menu so that the chef may prepare special items according to your desires--such as a... More

We enjoyed a five course meal in this superb setting, where each course was well explained and more than exceeded expectations. Don't be worried if you think five courses is two or three too much, whilst this is not a tasting menu the flavours are subtle and the portion sizes not too big. A must do during you stay.

The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe.
