Ashford Castle Celebrates 800 Years with the Gift of a Complimentary Night

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Cong, Ireland —With more and more travelers craving authentic experiences when they travel, this is the year to discover a true Irish castle. The 800-year-old Ashford Castle, steeped in history, is located in Ireland’s County Mayo and has announced an Ashford 800 Celebration that includes three nights for the price of two, breakfast each morning and plenty of time to soak in the storied history. Few castles have the pedigree of Ashford Castle. From the laying of the first stone in the 13th century by the de Burgo family to the influence of the prominent Guinness family centuries later, there has been a seamless joining of ancient history with the luxury of a modern hotel.

Guests who book two nights in a Deluxe Room for 800 Euro (approximately US $1,113), share this history and enjoy a complimentary third night. Breakfast for two each morning is also included, not to mention luxurious surroundings and views of the estate’s lake and river. Guests can opt for the package with a larger room or suite for 1,045 Euro and 1,095 Euro respectively (approximately US $1,454 and US $1,524). The Ashford 800 Celebration is subject to availability from April 1 through September 30, 2010.

Ashford Castle is set on 350 acres of County Mayo, on the shores of Lough Corrib and the River Cong, with a spectacular backdrop of woodlands, lake, river and mountains. It features 83 guestrooms and is renowned for a range of country sports including an equestrian center, fly fishing, an exclusive nine-hole golf course, Ireland’s first school of falconry and sporting clay shooting.
