Overview

Historic and modern luxury amenities are available to guests
Everything is exceptionally expensive, especially the food

Ashford Castle, which was originally built in 1228 and reopened in April 2015 after undergoing a two-year renovation, is located in Cong, Ireland (roughly 25 miles northwest of Galway). Recent guests said that they felt like royalty during their stays, but they warned that even a few days of living like a king doesn't come cheap. A tourist attraction in its own right, the fully restored Ashford Castle sports an assortment of luxury amenities, including a 32-seat cinema, a state-of-the-art spa and complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the property. Visitors can also enjoy more historically significant activities, which range from exploring the castle's gardens to taking an introductory falconry course. Rooms and suites are all lavishly decorated with touches like fresh flowers, monogrammed bed linens and custom carpets. Digs are also decked out with more modern perks, including flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, electronic blinds and USB chargers. There are also three on-site restaurants for foodies to explore. The George V Dining Room provides upscale meals in an elegant dining room, and Cullen's at the Cottage serves local and international fare seasonally. Alternatively, guests can dig into Irish cuisine in The Dungeon, which features a curved stone ceiling and period-inspired decorations.
