This charming hotel, as the name suggests, is in the grounds of Ashford Castle; itself a large 5-star sister hotel. The original part of The Lodge is Victorian and was the estate manager's house back in the day. The first-floor restaurant (there is also a brasserie on the ground floor) offers stunning views over Lough Corrib as do some bedrooms; these are spacious, well equipped and suit leisure guests particularly well. The team are welcoming and friendly.
