For one of the most luxurious experiences, guests have the opportunity to stay in one of the suites. Each suite offers a king sized bed and sofa bed, as well as a large private dining space. Guests of the suites are able to enjoy views of the River Cong or Lough Corrib. The Kennedy and Presidential suites are two of the suites guests can choose from. The Kennedy Suite was named after Ted Kennedy, the US Senator, who stayed at the Ashford Castle in the 1980’s. This suite is located in the oldest section of the castle and is home to a walnut bed from the 19th century, an early Victorian center table, and an armoire that dates back to the 1700’s. For guests traveling as a family or in a group, the Kennedy Suite can be combined with the Reagan Presidential Suite which will create a private three-bedroom suite for guests to enjoy.
Guests staying in the Kennedy suite will receive complimentary champagne and chocolate upon arrival, an in-room Sherry wine night cap, which can be enjoyed in front of the in suite fireplace, turn down services every night, and access to 24-hour housekeeping and in-room dining. Also available is the Reagan Presidential Suite, which was named after President Reagan, a personal friend of a former Ashford Castle owner, who also stayed at the castle in the 1980’s. The Reagan Presidential suite features its own set of impressive antique furniture like an original fireplace, antique four poster bed, and artwork that dates back a few centuries. Guests staying in the Reagan Presidential Suite will feel like royalty in this split level suite that offers two bathrooms, and the option to be connected with the Kennedy suite for even more space. This suite also includes champagne and chocolate upon arrival, twenty-four-hour housekeeping, and in-room dining, as well as many special amenities. These additional amenities include a complimentary bar, complimentary appetizers every evening, and a daily gift to the room to make guests feel extra special while staying in the Reagan Presidential Suite at the Ashford Castle.
