Ashford Castle

County Mayo, Ireland

Escape to the Middle Ages and be treated like royalty with a stay at this majestic, medieval Irish castle, dating back to 1228. Located near the village Cong in County Mayo, Ashford was once the setting for the John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara film The Quiet Man. Hone your skills at archery, clay shooting and falconry, roam the estate's 350 acres on horseback or fish in the adjacent Lough Corrib and River Corrib. And what modern-day manor would be complete without a 9-hole golf course?
