Splash out in Cong

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 2, 2005

If you can afford it Ashford castle is well worth a visit. Fantastic food and charming staff and not to mention the spectacular setting. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore connemara(Cong is often known as the gateway to Connemara) and is still only a half hour away from Galway city. The hotel itself is beautiful. Be prepared for bats at some times of the year!
The hotel is located in the village of Cong. the village has gone into somewhat of a decline in recent years with the addtion of a flourescent wimpy burger among others! However if you take time to explore you will discover how beautiful it is. Go for a walk by the chalet(lake beach) down to the pigeon hole(caves) or just wander arounf the gardens of Ashford(theres a charge ...but try going in the back gate or approaching for m the abbey and you should find a way in for free!)

Unique Quality: The Castle has 2 restaurants, one a la carte and one table d'hote. There is a gym(but no pool) ,beauty rooms and a gift shop. Also well worth a visit is the school of Falconry,the only one of its kind in Ireland...very nice people working there.

Directions: Co. Mayo

Good enough for James Bond

by written on June 5, 2003

This really is five star luxury. James Bond actor Brosnan hired the whole place out for his wedding !

The Castle setting is very impressive with the lake behind and a 9-hole golf course in front.
One one of the holes Gary Player made it in two shots - and when you look at the severe dog-leg you realise quite what an achievemnent it was.
Just look at the website to see the quality of the place. If you ask, and you are a resident, they will also give you a tour of the place including the most expensive suite (wow!)

Unique Quality: Very relaxing location nice walking and sports including Salmon fishing right in front of the hotel.
