Ashford Castle



Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

This imposing castle-hotel is located in a 350-acre woodland park on the shores of Lough Corrib, 45 minutes north of Galway. Crenellated battlements incorporate the remnants of a 13th-century castle. The 82 lodgings on the estate offer antique furnishings, rich fabrics and original artwork. The private gated one-bedroom Hideaway Cottage in a former boathouse is also available. The Great Hall, a library and lounges are accented by intricately carved mantels, landscape paintings and period furniture. The formal George V Dining Room features gourmet dishes in an opulent setting with Waterford chandeliers, while The Dungeon is a casual bistro-style dining option for classic Irish cuisine. For drinks, the Prince of Wales Bar is a delightful option. Other amenities include a spa with a pool, hammam and gym, a falconry school, tennis courts, a nine-hole golf course and an equestrian center, plus a 32-seat cinema, a billiards room and roof terraces. Fishing excursions and archery classes can be arranged.
