Ashford Castle Given Five-Star Rating By Forbes Travel Guide

Co. Mayo's Ashford Castle has been given a five-star rating by Forbes Travel Guide in its 2020 Star Rating Guide.

Ashford Castle is now the first ever Irish hotel to be given a five-star rating - the highest possible ranking - by the annual rating guide, and is also the only hotel in Ireland that was selected by Forbes to be included in its 2020 Star Rating Guide.

"Over The Moon"

Ashford Castle general manager Niall Rochford commented, "We're over the moon at Ashford Castle to be the first and only hotel in Ireland to ever achieve a five-star rating in the Forbes Travel Guide annual awards. It's probably the most meticulous and internationally recognised hotel rating system in the world, so it's highly sought after, and I'm immensely proud of our loyal and long-serving team for delivering such consistently warm and polished service and generous hospitality. This accolade is a huge testament to their dedication, hard work and attention to detail, and, of course, to the passion and values instilled by our president and founder, Mrs. Tollman. We couldn't be more delighted."
