Considering the high quality of Ashford Castle overall, the dungeon restaurant was a let down. Rice with the chicken curry was under-cooked, fries with burger were mushy and cold. Considering the eye-watering €21 for a burger I was surprised at how below average it was....More

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.
