With Hollywood stars from yesteryear on your mind, you’ll sit down to dinner in the restaurant, still decorated with 1950s telephones, a 1930s zinc bar, vintage posters and art providing an incredibly special backdrop for authentic Parisian cuisine and memories to last a lifetime.

You’ll begin your enchanting stay with a private cruise across the glittering waters of Lough Corrib to Ashford Castle which slowly appears, shimmering in the distance. As you disembark, to the sounds of a lone piper, you’ll feel moved by its haunting melody which escorts you all the way into the castle. Dating back to 1228 and an icon of Ireland, Ashford Castle is one of Trafalgar’s Stays With Stories and has housed earls, princes, celebrities, dignitaries and the dynastic Guinness family. With spectacular views and an opportunity to delve into centuries of Irish heritage, you’ll understand how a stay at Ashford Castle is a rare but never-to-be-forgotten treat, made possible by Trafalgar’s sister company, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection.
