The Staycation Summer


Reopening in July with a smaller number of rooms, this will be the perfect opportunity to experience Ashford as one of very few guests, with 350 acres of grounds to explore and carefully curated activities for summer days, including falconry, golf, horse riding, fishing, boating, cycling, archery, clay pigeon shooting and zip-lining. One of the jewels in the Red Carnation crown, the castle has been lovingly restored by the family with carefully sourced antique pieces, exquisite fabrics, bespoke carpets, original artwork and marble bathrooms, sensitively complimenting the ambience and tradition of this iconic building while incorporating more modern technologies. A 32-seat cinema and Lego Room Service menu will keep younger family members entertained, whilst adults will appreciate the splendid billiard room, underground wine cellars and plenty of space to kick back and relax in comfort and style. Perhaps the ultimate destination for a post-lockdown break for two, Ashford’s Hideaway Cottage, right on the shores of Lough Corrib, offers enviable seclusion.
