Located on the West Coast of Ireland, this 13th-century, five-star castle sits on the northern shores of Lough Corrib, half an hour from Galway City.
Your royal adventure begins when you enter through the grand stone gates of the remarkable 800-year-old castle. Discover the exquisite interiors, delicious cuisine, a passionate team, a wealth of estate activities, and a state-of-the-art spa. As Ireland’s top hotel destination and former home of the Guinness family, the hotel is exceptional in every sense.
Each of the 83 rooms, suites, and Hideaway Cottage at Ashford Castle represents traditional elegance and finesse. Following an extensive refurbishment, many rooms and suites have been individually and lovingly designed, combining the castle’s original features with the latest modern luxuries. Meticulous attention to detail can be found in the unique works of art, carefully sourced antique furniture, and sumptuous fabrics with custom-designed carpets, bespoke beds, feature lighting, exquisite toweling, and Egyptian Cotton bed linen.
Creative Irish cuisine, inspired use of the finest seasonal ingredients from the West of Ireland, and an extensive wine cellar make any stay at Ashford Castle a gourmet’s delight. Chef Philippe Farineau gives fine expression to the dishes offered in the four main dining rooms – whether it’s fine dining in the grandeur of the George V Dining Room, casual dining in the comfortable setting of Cullen’s at the Cottage or The Dungeon, or a delightful Afternoon Tea in the elegant Connaught Room.
The Spa at Ashford Castle is dedicated to restoring beauty and balance through treatments and spa journeys, personalized for each of the guests by exceptionally skilled therapists. The commitment to well-being focuses on essential ancient wisdom with modern expertise. Guests leave feeling nurtured, purified, pampered, and relaxed.
