Published 18th Feb 2024 by Karina Corbett

The Spa at Ashford Castle in Cong, Co Mayo has retained its five-star Forbes Travel Guide ranking.

It is the only spa in Ireland to have received this rating. The annual Forbes Travel Guide ranks the world’s most luxurious properties and is the only global independent rating system.

The Spa at Ashford Castle was recognised “as a modern oasis designed to pamper you like royalty, and with the white coral chandeliers of the serene indoor pool area, no luxe detail has been overlooked”.

Meanwhile, Ashford Castle also retained its five-star status, which it has now achieved for five years in a row.

“There’s a nervous excitement that permeates the castle in the weeks leading into the annual Forbes Travel Guide rating announcement,” said Niall Rochford, general manager at Ashford Castle.

“While we know we have a magnificent property and a wonderful team of people who are passionate about providing superior standards of service to our guests, each year we raise the bar that little bit higher for ourselves. We strive to inspire and support one another and to be exemplars for the tourism industry, flying the flag for five-star hospitality in Ireland.

“Along with our owners at Red Carnation, I want to congratulate the team at Ashford Castle on this award, for this is an acknowledgement of their wonderful efforts.”
