Stay at Ashford Castle

Magisterial turrets, opulent antique furnishings, sparkling Lough Corrib, and sprawling lawns and gardens containing all of Ireland’s forty shades of green. The former residence of the Guinness family, Ashford Castle is an accommodation of singular eloquence.

Sip delectable cocktails in the Prince of Wales bar after an afternoon of clay-pigeon shooting. Catch a matinee at the 32-seat cinema before heading out horseback riding. Explore the property’s magnificent manicured gardens.

Escape to your own little home at the Hideaway Cottage, a converted boathouse on the shore of Lough Corrib, with a private pier and gated gardens.
