Set on a beautifully idyllic site overlooking Lough Corrib, The Lodge at Ashford Castle is a stunning 4 * hotel venue for a Wedding Day you will treasure forever.

The Setting
On a fine day the front lawn is a lovely place to enjoy drinks and canapés after your Wedding ceremony. There are also several areas indoors which are suitable for the drinks reception before your celebration dinner.

The Harbour Ballroom This spacious and well appointed Ballroom can accommodate up to 180 guests and is filled with natural daylight with stunning views of Lough Corrib.

Adjoining the Harbour Ballroom is the Harbour Bar, a generous reception room which can be opened or closed to the main room. There is also a formal garden terrace leading out from the Harbour Room.

Junior Harbour Room For smaller more intimate weddings, the front of the Harbour Room overlooking the lake can be closed off to accommodate 30 guests on three round tables or 24 guests on one large table.

A Menu tasting will be arranged four to six weeks before your Wedding, your perfect opportunity to taste the food as it will be on your Wedding day and wines which best suit your Menu choices.

Our day was wonderful from beginning to end with every aspect of it covered so professionally and personally by Mairead and her team. All the guests raved about the food and the friendliness of the staff at The Lodge. From outset I said if we just arrived on the day, I had the confidence that Mairead would have everything arranged as she is a true experienced professional as well as easy to deal with and very quick to respond. The Lodge itself was like a home away from home and is well run and very well kept. A huge thank you to all there and I can't wait to go back for years to come.

We had the most wonderful wedding reception at the Lodge in the midst of storm Desmond. The weather conspired against us but Mairead and all the staff at the Lodge pulled out all the stops to make our day so special that the wind and rain outside only made the Christmas fairy lights twinkle even brighter. In the run up to the wedding we had no worries or stress regarding our venue, Mairead was always very responsive to our questions and kept us up to date with a summary of all decisions. In the year before our wedding we stayed on two different occasions at the Lodge and aside from the beautiful setting and building, the friendliness of the staff is something that we noticed, which was important to us for our wedding. The food on our wedding day was amazing, and vegetarians, vegans and children were all accommodated. The bridal suite was gorgeous with a copper bath in the room (luckily we decided to stay an extra night after the wedding so were able to relax and appreciate it all). Many of our guests had travelled from Dublin and had not stayed often / before in the area and I know that after staying at the Lodge many intend to return. I'm so glad we chose this venue for our wedding, not only because everything went so well but also because we have somewhere so special to return to for wedding anniversaries etc. In a nutshell, if you are looking for somewhere magical for your wedding reception - this is the place!

Dear Aishling & Ciaran, Thank you so much for your review. I have to say storm Desmond was not casting a shadow over your day. It felt quite cosy being inside with the mulled wine and blazing fires. I really appreciate your feed back, I will share this with the rest of our team, it is so important to us that your day is perfect. I really believe in a warm friendly west of Ireland welcome. Aishling & Ciaran, I wish you both Health & Happiness in your new life and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Lodge for your anniversary. Kind Regards Mairead Geehan Wedding & Events Manager

Staff were extremely helfpful..all our requests were accommodated as well as the room laid out exactly as we wanted with our own table settings. Guests were all delighted with the food. There was a bad storm that night and some guests had to be moved to different rooms but it was all dealt with quickly and discreetly.
