Ashford Castle is a historic castle.
From the moment you are greeted at the front gate the staff park your car and your bags are taken to your room and you are living the dream. It was the first visit for us and it was not a disappointment.
The staff are genuine and attentive and you can see they work well together, everyone is very professional.
When we arrived and signed in we were given a hot punch drink. The bedroom was immaculately decorated with fabric on the walls.
One of the high points of my stay was meeting the Irish wolfhounds, Cronan and Garvin. That was fun as they are my favourite dogs.
The Irish Falconry School was very special. We had a private guide who explained all about hawks to us then we flew a hawk called Inca around the spectacular grounds. It was a wonderful experience.
For a little pampering we visited the spa and it was a treat to unwind in such lovely surroundings.
The George V dining room with panelled walls and Waterford Crystal chandeliers is beautiful. The cuisine is very good and Ashford Castle is the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
I take this opportunity to wish everybody a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.
I will be working up until 23rd December and then closed for Christmas through to the New Year and back on Thursday 5th January 2017
