Dating back to 1228 and once the estate of the Guinness family, the legendary 5-star Ashford Castle Hotel is one of Ireland’s grandest castle hotels, with a history going back to the early 13th century.  Situated in 350 acres of manicured gardens and beautiful parkland, this is probably Ireland’s most romantic hotel. Panelled walls, oil paintings, suits of armour and magnificent fireplaces adorn public rooms which have magnificent views of Lough Corrib, the River Cong and wooded parkland.  Ashford is renowned for a range of country sports including one of the largest equestrian centers in the country, fishing on Lough Corrib and River Cong, an exclusive nine-hole golf course, Ireland’s first school of falconry and sport clay shooting.

Within a few hours you can sample magnificent mountain vistas, enchanting seascapes, and the broad expanses of wild and colourful countryside for which Connemara is famous.
