Ashford Castle


One of the other great local attractions in the area is Ashford Castle. For centuries Ashford Castle has overlooked the shores of Lough Corrib, as one of Ireland’s most magnificent castles and one of the most luxurious resort hotels in the world.

Ashford Castle’s long and distinguished history dates back to 1228 when the Anglo Norman de Burgos family founded it. During its time Ashford Castle has hosted Presidents and Princes, Ronald Reagan in 1985 and Prince of Wales George V in 1905. The then future King of England was so enamoured with Ashford that he extended his original stay of a few days to 3 months.
