Irish country-house charm
Within the magnificent 350-acre estate of Ashford Castle, overlooking magical Lough Corrib.
County Mayo, Ireland
Originally built in 1865 for the Estate Manager of 800-year-old Ashford Castle, our elegant white-washed Lodge has views to rival the best in the world. Windows frame inspiring vistas out over placid Lough Corrib, one of Ireland’s largest lakes, backed by the rolling, emerald hills of Connemara.
The Lodge offers country house charm, fine dining in Wilde’s Restaurant and an exceptional collection of estate activities. This is one of Ireland’s finest wedding destinations, pairing warm Irish hospitality with a modern appeal.
The Lodge has reopened, we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Ashford Estate.
