Castle Ashford

Rating: ★★★★★

Rooms: 57  Suites: 4

Facilities: Golf Course, Fishing, Falconry, Equestrian Centre,  Restaurants, 

History:

From the laying of the first stone in 1228 by the de Burgo family through the philanthropy of Lord and Lady Ardilaun in the 19th century, there has been a fluent joining of ancient history with a luxurious manor. This is what has made Ashford a byword for excellence throughout Ireland – and beyond. The very pinpoints of light that glint from the glorious surface of Lough Corrib, Ireland’s second largest lake, seems to reflect not only the story but the personality of these blue waters. The view across the Lough has not changed in six thousand years. The castle has it own challenging golf course, and for those wishing to learn the Art of Falconry the hotel provides this special experience in addition to archery, clay-pigeon shooting, and from the equestrian centre, cross-country riding may also be enjoyed.
