Escape to Ireland’s Ashford Castle

Looking for a luxury break a little closer to home? Then the 800-year-old grandeur of Ireland’s Ashford Castle may be just the job!

Set in 350 acres of woodland on the shores of Lough Corrib in County Mayo, the multi-award-winning property, lovingly restored and steeped in history is widely recognised as Ireland’s top castle experience.

Venture through the grand stone gates and begin a royal adventure with exquisite interiors featuring unique artwork, Waterford crystal chandeliers, panelled oak walls, handcarved fireplaces, and sumptuous fabrics adorning each of the 83 individually designed rooms.

During your stay watch hawks soar at Ireland’s first School of Falconry,
enjoy a round of golf  on a course designed by Eddie Hackett and restore inner peace and harmony at the state-of-the- art spa.

Guests can take a lake cruise to explore the stunning scenery and surrounding islands or try their hand at the ancient pastimes of archery and clay shooting.

For foodies, extraordinary dining experiences await in the Dungeon, the
George V Dining Room and in the wine cellars beneath the castle, with fine Irish cuisine made from fresh seasonal produce, homegrown ingredients from the estate and sourced locally from artisan suppliers.
After dinner why not relax in the Billiards Room, watch a movie in the 32-seater cinema, or try one of the 60 Irish whiskies in The Prince of Wales Bar.

Tailored packages start from around £800 for two, per night.
