Between the canopy beds, the upholstered chairs and the crystal chandeliers, one almost has the impression that a crowned head will emerge around a corridor…
For its little guests, Ashford Castle is also full of surprises. Depending on the corners and corridors, they love to discover the castle thanks to the orientation map provided by the establishment. A real treasure hunt! Even more surprising, the « Lego Menu » is an exclusive service of Ashford Castle, which allows your child to choose different types of Legos.
