We had dinner in the Dungeon after having had tea upstairs at Ashford Castle. Note: have either tea, or dinner; the servings are generous for tea, and you will still be full when you go to dinner!

If it wasn’t for the fact that the Dungeon is in the same venue as the George V restaurant, you would think you’d picked a place to eat that could not be beaten for miles and miles around. The food is outstanding and the service...More

Well every castle had a dungeon right?? Naturally it was located in the cellar with a lot of colorful banners & armor suits. Overall the food was very good as well as the service.

Dining in the dungeon room of one of the great hotels in the world is a fine experience. You can find equal or better food for less at other places, but dining in the Castle is what you’re paying for.

Description
As its name would suggest, the unique setting located on the lower ground floor of the castle invites diners to enjoy a range of satisfying dishes from the bistro-style menu with a focus on traditional Irish cuisine beneath the historic curved stone ceiling. Together with a relaxed ambience, it makes for a wonderful and memorable dining experience.
