County Mayo, Ireland
As Ireland's first and only Forbes Five Star Hotel and the former home of the Guinness family, Ashford Castle is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The hotel has reopened, we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Ashford Estate.
The availability of these experiences will be updated in line with government guidelines on visiting private homes and the rollout of vaccines amongst our experience partners.
Ireland has a rich history of artisan craftsmanship, and the west of Ireland in particular has drawn these craftspeople as a place of inspiration and work.
The enthusiasm and passion of these food producers is infectious and all the more intimate when they welcome you into their homes.
Travel back through the annals of time and meet the experts who carry the art forms of ancient Ireland into the present day.
Meet the people who have been shaped by this exposed landscape and learn about the skills and crafts that have allowed this resilient race to survive here over the centuries.
We are proud that these experiences have been selected as a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. Chosen for the positive impact they have on the traveller and communities we explore, they directly advance the United Nations Global Goal 11 'Sustainable Cities and Communities' by preserving local traditions, natural and built heritage and promoting cultural vibrancy.
