Ashford castle has been entertaining guests long before the Castle became a hotel, playing host to many private parties from the time of the de burgo Family to the Guinness Family to today’s guests, thus establishing the George V Dining Room as one of the premiere Castle Restaurants in Ireland.
Located in the Beating Heart of the Castle is the George V Restaurant built by the Guinness family to host evening dinner parties for the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1906. Here one can sit under the soothing light provided by the 11 magnificent Waterford Crystal chandeliers and dine like Lord or Lady while listening to the harmonious notes floating through the air provided by our resident pianist.
