Exclusive use

Make Ashford Castle truly your own by opting for exclusive hire. Our 83 rooms and suites and The Boathouse accommodate up to 160 guests, allowing the full castle experience without interruption.

Enjoy exclusive use of all restaurants and bars including The George V Dining Room for an unforgettable wedding breakfast, our underground wine cellar for a magical pre-wedding event or the impressive Oak Hall for a show-stopping reception in the heart of the castle.

The ceremony

Hold your ceremony in a local church, in the castle’s elegant Drawing Room or weather permitting, outside in the castle gardens with remarkable views over Lough Corrib and an impressive castle backdrop.

If you would prefer a church wedding, a choice of churches are located in and around the castle grounds. Alternatively, Saint Mary’s Church is located in the local village of Cong, or Ballintubber Abbey is a 40-minute drive away.
