Part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection
It is with great pleasure that we will open our grand, 800-year-old stone gates once more on 2nd July. As Ireland's only Forbes Five Star hotel and a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, we are a family of passionate people who are as deeply committed as ever to giving the very best in all we do.
We are proud of the many reasons to love our exceptional Castle on the beautiful 350-acre Ashford Estate, from our serene, restorative Spa - voted Tatler magazine’s Spa of the Year and drawing on ancient, holistic healing practices - to our collection of authentic experiences that bring this verdant corner of Ireland to life, including visits to the studios of local craftspeople and a private recital from Ireland's most prominent traditional piper.

Our Executive Chef Philippe Farineau and his talented team have been busy foraging on the Estate, picking wood sorrel, violet flowers, wild garlic and Irish strawberries to use in our signature dishes and expertly mixed cocktails. Our gardens and ancient woodland have also come alive with the colours of summertime, with many exceptional Estate activities to enjoy, and the calm waters of Lake Corrib are yours to explore by boat, kayak or stand-up paddleboard.
If there is anything we can do to make your next stay with us extra special, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. We are so excited to welcome guests once again at Ashford Castle, where an especially warm Irish welcome awaits...
