Ashford Castle, Co. Mayo

Ashford Castle is the quintessential Irish fairytale, set within 350 acres on the postcard-perfect shores of Lough Corrib. Dating back to 1228, the castle is a true piece of the Emerald Isle’s history and with all manner of country pursuits on offer, there’s no shortage of one of a kind adventures to be had on a romantic escape. Each of the 82 guestrooms oozes classic luxury and a few nights here will leave you feeling like royalty as you indulge in the refined elegance of it all.


Touch down at either Galway or Knock airport where a friendly face can be arranged to whisk you in just under an hour to the old world luxury of Ashford Castle. With an abundance of breathtaking sights, there really are spectacular views at every turn here, so take a stroll outside, close your eyes, spin around and take your pick.

Your Room

All of the guestrooms and suites have been individually designed with meticulous attention to detail. From bespoke four-poster beds, one of a kind antiques and unique works of art adorning the walls- there’s nothing that hasn’t been thought about. So cozy up in a white fluffy dressing gown before bedding down in your Egyptian cotton sheets- the perfect recipe for a dreamy night’s sleep.

Why we like it

With no shortage of first-class luxury (and a splash of decadence), there’s no wonder why we love Ashford Castle. But its not just about the beautiful castle- throw yourself into the Irish outdoors through all the different country pursuits on offer. Home to the first school of Falconry, discover the magic of flying hawks as one gracefully lands on your arm. If birds aren’t your thing don’t worry there’s also fishing, horse riding, kayaking, lake cruises and many more adventures to fill your days with endless adventures.
