Culinary adventures

At Ashford Castle we make mealtimes fun! We understand that sometimes eating in a restaurant with little ones can be a challenge, so we do our utmost to accommodate the needs of the whole family, from adaptable seating to special cutlery and thoughtfully designed children’s menus. If your children have a favourite dish that isn’t on the menu, please let us know and we’ll be glad to provide this wherever possible.
