The Lodge at Ashford Mayo

Is this a courting or a donnybrook? Have the good manners not to hit the man until he’s your husband and entitled to hit you back (The Quiet Man). Set in Cong and its environs over half a century ago, the film was a roaring success.

Nearby Ashford Castle estate, home of the Guinness family until the early 1900s, is set on 375 acres with spectacular views overlooking Lough Corrib, on the grounds of which The Lodge at Ashford was built for the estate manager just after the Great Famine.

The estate activities include golf, archery, clay pigeon shooting, Lough Corrib cruise, fishing, bike and walking trails, falconry and horse riding.

Situated close to Galway and Connemara, the boutique 4 star Lodge at Ashford in Mayo is perfect for a break in West of Ireland. The hotel offers plenty of space to relax and unwind, cleverly maintaining the tradition of a fine Country House combined with the contemporary luxury and style of today.
