For hundreds of years, the grounds of Ashford Castle have provided space for thrilling estate activities for its owners and their friends. Successive generations of the de Burgo, Bingham, Browne and Guinness families have created one of the finest sporting estates in all of Ireland, if not the world – which is proudly continued to this day.
The expansive 350-acre Ashford Estate lends itself perfectly to a range of activities, from country classic pastimes such as horse riding, fishing, falconry and shooting, to more modern activities such as golf, cycling and kayaking. So whether you are the active type or prefer to relax and soak up the scenery, you are spoilt for choice at Ashford Castle. Michael and Fiona, our dedicated Activities Coordinators, are on hand to advise, and even have two Go Pro cameras to capture all the action!
