The Dungeon at Ashford Castle
We had high expectations but overall nothing about the meal really stood out as spectacular. Then again nothing was really poor either. We just expected more. Are you
It was my daughter Birthday! The staff was great food was excellent.
Excellent all round.Our waiter Stephen was a total gentleman ..10/10
Make sure to make a reservation early, this place gets booked up fast. The oysters were incredibly fresh and their steak was MOUTH WATERING. Highly recommend if you are staying at Ashford.
The tables were very close and the room is too small. I thought it would have had a more "dungeon" look. Our order was incorrect - didn't receive everything we ordered. Food was okay, nothing spectacular as I would have expected at Ashford Castle.
Casual themed dining with a good menu, efficient staff, and tremendous deserts. It is a small location so if you plan on dining there be sure to make a reservation days before.
Nice ending to a wonderful vacation
Our dinner at The Dungeon at Ashford Castle was lovely and delicious. The ambiance was very clubby, in a good way. The service was unobtrusive yet attentive, and always friendly and kind. The oysters were amazing, as was my filet and accompaniments. My husband's fish was outstanding. A lovely evening with a walk outside on the lovely grounds of the castle. Highly recommended!
Service was very attentive and excellent. We both ordered filet mignon and both were outstanding and prepared exactly as we had requested. The atmosphere is dark, with candlelight, which we loved. We also liked the casual attire (no jacket required) since we were traveling and had not packed 'formal' clothes for the other dining room at the castle.
The Irish Wagyu ribeye steak was very poor. Tesco finest ribeye steak is a far superior product.
The creamed spinach was bitter and stalky and the chips were a poor quality oven chip.
Really not a good meal. Very very Dissatisfied and disappointed.
Amazing! Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone
A very nice and unique setting for a meal. Ashford Castle is an amazing place.
Service is second to none
Ashford Castle is an experience and lives up to even the loftiest expectations. We went horse back riding followed by dinner but we had a 2 hour gap between the 2. They allowed us to lounge at the bar (a separate room with its own fireplace and leather club chairs) while dinner time rolled around. Allow is the appropriate word. This is an exclusive hotel, very protective of its guests privacy and comfort. Although you can enjoy all the activities offered on the property of the castle (at a cost), access to the hotel and its immediate grounds is only if you are a registered guest or have an advance reservation at one of its restaurants. Your name is checked against reservations before you are allowed over the threshold. Even with all that and knowing the scrutiny, I am happy to abide by the rules to experience something so steeped in tradition and history. And to top it all off, the food was excellent, the offerings varied and tasty. The service was on par with any of the best restaurants in NYC without a snooty attitude anywhere. This is there more casual restaurant but I don't think I could have enjoyed the formal one more. It's my second time at the castle, my first time dining but it is not my last time visiting. I am already planning my trip for next year. A new family tradition :)
Best restaurant in the castle
Excellent service in this small restaurant... food was very good.
lovely setting, relaxed despite the grandeur of the hotel, fantastic food and service, would definitely eat here again were the opportunity to arise
Great Atmosphere! Everything at Ashford Castle is top notch! Everyone is so friendly and accommodating! Food is delicious!
Pretty expensive for a basic menu.
Thought main course (Cod) was rather cold.
The matcha gimlet cocktail was excellent. Service was attentive and quick. Food was well-prepared, hot, and tasty.
The Dungeon at Ashford Castle is as nice as it gets! Actually, every little detail at Ashford Castle and the Dungeon is looked after. I had the filet mignon and it was fabulous, my wife had the salmon and again it was over the moon excellent. The service here is as good as it gets, the ambience outstanding and this is a top notch restaurant. Don't miss the if you're in for a treat!
Great setting, great service and amazing food. Highly recommended
The food, staff and service was outstanding. The setting a bit kitsch. i would prefer the decor of the George V dining room.
El lugar es alucinante. Un calabozo medieval que fue acondicionado como restaurante. La atención extraordinaria, la selección de vinos por copa muy buena y la preparación y calidad de los platillos inmejorable. Un lugar inmerso dentro del Castillo de Ashford. Mejor imposible
Excellent food and service once again. Great ambiance
Amazing experience at Ashford Castle!! Such a unique setting with delicious food, superb service and ambiance.
Fantastic food. Great service.
Tended to not care for us until they realized we were staying at the hotel. Since I booked through open table and now the hotel.
Not only a lovely dinner but we got to see some of the rooms in the Castle.
The Dungeon restaurant was a real treat! The atmosphere was wonderful, the service was amazing. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I requested a special birthday cake and asked the waiters and waitresses to don masks when serving my husband...all which they did in good fun! The food was excellent...we would definitely recommend it!
The castle itself is worth the visit! We took my Mom there and she absolutely loved it! The champagne by the fire before dinner was such a great touch. The service was on point and the food was very good and worth the price.
This restaurant was an exceptional experience. A perfect blend of absolutely delicious food (we had the sea bass) and friendly service.
Food and service were outstanding. We were only disappointed to find out that it was not an actual dungeon. This was not in a dungeon-like lower level of the castle. The server said the restaurant used to be the castle kitchen. :/
From the moment we drove up we knew we were in for a special evening. We were greeted at the door and led to the restaurant. During our meal, at least five people served us in various capacities. Everyone was friendly, gracious, and personable. The food was memorable, to say the least. Each course was thoughtfully prepared and presented. The atmosphere was calming, quieting - not pretentious. A lovely space to enjoy an exceptional meal.
Loved the restaurant and service was wonderful. The only negative I can say is, a big business party came in and we were no longer able to converse and hear each other.
While staying at The Lodge at Ashford Castle, we dined in three restaurants and visited the bar in Lodge. All our meals were excellent, as was the service.
Delicious food in a casual atmosphere. Outstanding service!
The food as excellent as was the service
The food was phenomenal.
I had the fresh catch of the day and it was the best meal I had in Ireland. Fiancé had the filet and it was also delicious. We had an early reservation and it was not too crowded or noisy. We received excellent service. And the bread—was to die for!!
We got engaged at the castle and had a wonderful dinner in The Dungeon with champagne to celebrate.
