Ashford Castle • Ireland
PROPERTY SIZE: 82 rooms
ROOM STYLE: Classic
The 13th-century Ashford Castle is located 45 minutes from Galway City. Once the estate of Lord Ardilaun and the Guinness family, the castle opened as a luxury hotel in 1939. In 2013 it was bought by the Tollman family of the Red Carnation collection, who began a loving restoration project resulting in a “Palace inside a Castle.” The castle offers 82 bespoke bedrooms, a 32-seat cinema, multiple dining options, a library, a billiard room, a cigar terrace, beautiful public lounges and 21st-century technology, including air conditioning, throughout. The Ashford Estate offers an array of activities, from Orvis fly-fishing to Ireland’s first school of falconry.
