Statement By Ashford Castle General Manager
Speaking of the award, Niall Rochford, general manager at Ashford Castle, said, "Given the challenges over the past two years, this award will mean the world to our team at Ashford Castle and our owners at Red Carnation, particularly as they were voted for by Travel + Leisure’s discerning and well-travelled readers, making them even more rewarding. Such accolades really help to support Ireland’s tourism efforts and ensure our place on the international stage, particularly in the US market which is hugely important to Ashford Castle. We are in very good company in this category and given the standard of five-star hotels across the UK this is not just a win for Ashford Castle, but for Ireland Inc."
