Ashford Castle has been hosting distinguished guests for almost 800 years – one of the most prominent being the Prince of Wales, who subsequently became George V of England. In honour of his visit in 1905, the Guinness family built a special dining room which still bears his name proudly to this day.
The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Head Sommelier Paul Fogerty.
Recently, George V Dining Room earned Wine Spectator’s 2020 Best of Award of Excellence.
Please note: This restaurant is currently only open to residents of the castle.
If you are unable to spoil your mother in person, join her virtually in a beautiful afternoon of celebration and indulgence. In proud partnership with Lanson Champagne, we are delighted to extend an invitation to join us for an intimate series of masterclasses.
Be transported to our stunning Noel Coward Suite, where our General Manager Andrew Pike will virtually welcome you, before you embark on a Champagne tasting session with a representative from Lanson. Before the event, we will send your mother a beautifully packaged gift with a half-bottle of Lanson Rose Champagne, a 50ml bottle of gin, and homemade Champagne and white chocolate truffles.
Our signature cocktail, The Milestone Smoking Old Fashioned, follows the traditional New Orleans recipe, but we've added something special at the start, and a theatrical twist at the end.
Rather than whisky straight from the bottle, ours has been barrel-aged for 60 days in Canadian maple syrup and vodka. And then there's a final flourish that elevates it from a drink to an experience – your cocktail is presented in a glass dome filled with shisha smoke, releasing hints of apple and orange when you lift the lid.
