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.

The Wedding Dinner
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.

As an added bonus should you choose to have your wedding at The Lodge at Ashford Castle, we offer an overnight stay along with your menu tasting.

On the day of your wedding, Tables will be dressed with crisp white linen and our florist will provide seasonal fresh flowers as centrepieces.

All 26 suites and 24 deluxe rooms in The Lodge at Ashford Castle are located in a Courtyard setting linked to the Main House and are individually designed and equipped with the latest “comfort” technology. Rich deep pile carpets, super-king beds with goose down duvets and pillows, bespoke furniture and the latest flat screen technology are featured through-out.

The Day After

On cooler or darker evenings enjoy an indoor Buffet and relive the events of the day before.


We recently got married at The Lodge at Ashford Castle and really cannot recommend it enough. It was a truly fantastic experience in every way, from the idyllic setting, delicious food, professional and attentive staff to the really comfortable accommodation. Our guests really enjoyed the day and all of those who stayed for the long weekend were really complementary about the hospitality of the staff, great setting and fun! If you are looking for somewhere that offers a little something different to the usual run-of-the-mill Irish wedding venue in oversized and dark reception rooms, I would choose this boutique hotel any day.
Just a quick note to thank you so much for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. We love every minute of our time spent. You are all so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We have had so many comments from our wedding guests on the venue, food and service. It was truly amazing and everything was so professional. We did not have to worry about a thing from when we arrived to when we left. You took care of everything for us so well. Wade, the food was simply out of this world. Our guests have not stopped talking about how fabulous the food was. Top quality indeed! We will definitely be back to visit you all soon and look forward to seeing you again.
Well we are now back from our honeymoon and to reality with a bang and just wanted to drop you all a line to say thank you so much for everything on our wedding day & the whole wedding weekend last May. We were so happy with the hotel, the service, food and organisation for the wedding and how well everything fell into place…as were all our guests. The three nights in The Lodge at Ashford Castle were truly wonderful and we had nothing but compliments from everyone all weekend. Please pass on our thanks to Chef Wade in particular as the food the night before the wedding in the restaurant, on the wedding day and then again for the bbq was superb. All Mairead and Carly’s words of advice were spot on and we really did appreciate all your help leading up the wedding day and over the whole weekend…as god only knows it can be stressful! The hotel really felt like ‘ours’ for the wedding and it created such a special atmosphere for everyone there. It was truly everything we had hoped for and more and we are just delighted after the whole experience and looking forward to come down to stay again and again over the years! Many thanks again to you all.
