    Ashford Castle, County Mayo

    Five-star Ashford Castle in the west of Ireland is a global icon of luxury accommodation. Originally built in the 13th century, and once owned by the Guinness brewing family, it has won countless awards since it opened its doors to guests in 1915. From landscaped gardens to a private cinema, world-class food to an award-winning spa, Ashford delivers the best but it prides itself on its warm Irish hospitality.

    Killeavy Castle, County Armagh

    One of Ireland’s “newer” castle hotels, Killeavy Castle dates from the mid-19th century and is nestled in the woodlands of the Ring of Gullion in Northern Ireland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In addition to the luxurious accommodation and first-rate service of a castle hotel, Killeavy has a strong sustainability ethos, with menus featuring food from the estate farm, policies to reduce single-use plastic and a programme of tree-planting to help repopulate Slieve Gullion Forest.

    Kilronan Castle, County Roscommon

    A magnificent Gothic structure on the shores of Lough Meelagh in County Roscommon, Kilronan Castle today is the epitome of castle hotel opulence, with its blend of old-world elegance and modern luxury. The 19th century castle has been beautifully restored, the 16-hectare estate boasts breathtaking lake and woodland views, and the full suit of armour that greets you as you enter the castle will reassure you that this is as authentic as it gets.
