The George V Dining Room

Ashford Castle, CONG, Co Mayo, ROI,

2 rosettes

Once home to the Guinness family, Ashford Castle dates from the 13th century and sits grandly on the shores of Lough Corrib, amid 350 acres of parkland. The dining room was built to host a reception for the Prince of Wales in 1906 - hence its name. You'll find Waterford crystal chandeliers, oak panelling and classic dishes from the new head chef. Home-smoked Skeaghanore duck with heritage carrots, black garlic and fennel jam might be a good place to start, followed by scallops with seaweed gnocchi, or venison with duck foie gras. There's a tasting menu, too.
