Constructed more than a century ago and dating back to the time when the estate was owned by the Guinness family, our enchanting, stand-alone and lovingly restored boathouse is perched on the edge of Lough Corrib, a few minutes from the castle.
Originally used by the Guinness’ to store Italian Riva boats which the family used on the lake, today The Boathouse is an exclusive sanctuary-like suite for two – out-of-the-way of prying eyes and screened by security gates – affording its guests incomparable seclusion and a unique place to relax and unwind in splendid isolation.
Enjoying uninterrupted lake views to the front and surrounded by private gardens and terraces, guests enjoy peace, quiet and total privacy, with just the soothing sounds of the gently lapping waters for company.
Inside The Boathouse, no expense has been spared to create a deluxe retreat brimming with architectural and interior design detailing, including handmade timber parquet floors, original art and plush fabrics. A bespoke Murano glass chandelier hangs above a king-sized bed laid with the finest Egyptian cotton linens. Meanwhile the sumptuous, marble-lined bathroom – itself the size of a small bedroom – features a palatial tub for two and an oversized walk-in shower.
Standout pieces in The Boathouse include a rare French Empire period chest of drawers; a 20th century European canvas screen; original works by celebrated French painter Louis Icart, and a late 19th century pair of walnut armchairs covered in beautiful tapestry by Brunschwig & Fils.
Once through the gates, unlock your own front door and you’ll surely feel at home in no time. Relax on your private lakeside terrace and soak in the panoramic water vistas. Dine à deux inside or al fresco on the finest cuisine West Ireland has to offer. And if you can tear yourself away from your charming home-away-from-home, a pair of bicycles are at your disposal and a 24-hour butler is at your beck-and-call to personally showcase the very best that the spectacular Ashford Castle Estate has to offer.
