Ashford Castle Opens The Lodge at Ashford

Great news for Ireland-bound guests: Ashford Castle has re-opened the Lisloughrey Lodge, a 19th-century manor house on its grounds, as The Lodge at Ashford. The Lodge is only a few minutes' stroll from the popular five-star Castle.

Dating back to the 1860s, The Lodge at Ashford was originally built as the home for Ashford Castle's Estate Manager. Today, the original lodge contains the hotel's public rooms and is linked through a courtyard to the property's 24 guestrooms and 26 suites.

Cool touches: Each guest accommodation has modern features like under-floor bathroom heating and flat screen TVs.

The Lodge at Ashford has two dining options: Wilde's at the Lodge, serving contemporary country cuisine on the restored first floor of the original house, and The Quay Bar, offering informal dining and an extensive collection of malt whiskeys. Both restaurants are headed by Chef Adrian Bane.

Guests of The Lodge at Ashford can participate in all activities and amenities offered by Ashford Castle, including the castle's bars and restaurants, clay shooting, cruising Lough Corrib, falconry, fishing, golf, horseback riding and walking trails. The Lodge at Ashford also has a dedicated children's program and a summer camp throughout July and August. The facilities of The Lodge at Ashford are also available to guests of Ashford Castle.
