Outstanding hotel
Absolutely amazing from start to finish From the welcome, the staff greeting and service was the best we have ever experienced. The food was outstanding, rooms so luxurious and the grounds were out of this world ! We experienced the hawk walk to which my husband has not stopped talking about. The river cruise so informative, horse riding and the spa. The staff made you feel so comfortable and treated us like a king and queen. A unique experience I will never forget. Thank you to each and every !! Member of staff at Ashford Castle We cannot wait to return some day.
