    This was an amazing experience. We had a last minute adjustment to our party size (2 instead of 3) and the staff was so accommodating. They were all attentive and kind without being overbearing. The food and drinks were phenomenal, with a lovely view of the grounds. I would absolutely recommend this experience!

    Lovely setting but food was very disappointing! The potato and leek soup was more like flavoured water but the bread was very fresh and delicious. The beef brisket baguette was pleasant but better quality could easily be found elsewhere. Would not recommend or return for the food.

    It’s a fun experience to eat lunch at Ashford Castle. You feel so fancy! However, the chairs and tables are oddly mismatched and not comfortable to sit in. It felt like the table was a foot away because the chair had my knees hitting the table. And if you sit on the sofa, you’re really oddly set. The food is pretty tasty, although a bit pricey.

    The food was very good, however, the design of the tables make it impossible to sit close, which meant we had to lean way over to eat our soup so it wouldn't end up in our laps.
