The Lodge @ Ashford Castle, Mayo

Hello Lovelies

I hope you are all keeping well

Have you ever gotten to some point of the month where you are sick of sitting around, going to cinema, wandering around aimlessly through town or the closest shopping centre, hit up living social for one of their weekend getaways.

We struck gold one weekend last October where we found The Lodge @ Ashford Castle for the weekend, including breakfast on both mornings and dinner on one night.

We sampled their Michelin Star Oscar Wilde Restaurant, that was absolutely fabulous. Check out their sample menu here.

These are hand painted chocolate marbles – each one have a different flavour inside of them.


The grounds around Ashford Castle are so vast, with gorgeous walks through beautiful gardens, falconry and a multitude of activities to keep everyone busy.

We choose falconry, it was amazing.

With only a 3 and half hour drive from Dublin, I would definitely go back
