This Thanksgiving, Ashford Castle, Ireland’s favorite five-star estate, invites the whole family for an Irish-style holiday complete with homemade turkey, stuffing and all the fixings. As an extra “thanks” to guests, the castle is also providing a complimentary third night for the holiday weekend stay.


Currently undergoing an extensive renovation project, this 13th-century-castle-turned-luxury-hotel is the perfect getaway for any couple or family wanting a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday without having to spend days slaving away in a kitchen. Instead, guests will enjoy a decadent, multi-course Thanksgiving feast in the recently renovated George V dining room, where the only fingers they lift will be to select desserts.

During their stay, guests can partake in the plethora of activities offered onsite including boat cruising, horseback riding, and the popular hawk walk at Ireland’s oldest established School of Falconry at Ashford Castle. For those who prefer to stay in and take in the beautiful woodlands, lake, river and mountains that surround Ashford Castle, guests can enjoy a lovely drink in the completely refurbished Prince of Wales room at the Cocktail Bar or enjoy a royal experience with the castle’s very own afternoon High Tea!

The Thanksgiving package is available from November 25-27, 2014 and includes:

  • Two nights’ accommodations in a Corrib room
  • Full Irish breakfast each morning
  • Table d’hôte dinner on two evenings in the George V dining room
  • Complimentary third night with bed and breakfast

The three-night package is priced at US$927 per room, based on double occupancy (with upgrades at an additional cost).

Purchased in 2013 by The Red Carnation hotel group, the castle is undergoing a loving restoration to transform the castle into the most luxurious and state-of-the-art castle hotel in all of Ireland.  Still maintaining its renowned service and its personable, long-time staff, Ashford Castle, which will be totally completed in 2015, will be more beautiful than ever and a must-stay-at destination.
