One of Ireland’s leading country house hotels has joined the Original Irish Hotels Group of almost 60 traditional and boutique hotels, castles and country houses and manors across Ireland.
A hotel of unique character that embodies the very best of genuine Irish hospitality, The Lodge at Ashford Castle is perfectly placed to be part of a collective that represents Ireland’s most welcoming and interesting hotels.
It’s the individuality of the Original Irish Hotels group’s members that sets them apart. However, they are nonetheless united by their passion for a warm welcome, outstanding service and all of the little extras that let guests know that they are not just another room number.
Niall Rochford, general manager of The Lodge at Ashford Castle said; “There is a certain strength that comes from being part of a group of like-minded hoteliers that are focused on bringing unique and unforgettable experiences to guests, in beautiful locations and settings all over Ireland. When searching for a break that will exceed expectations, guests can have confidence in choosing an Original Irish Hotels Group member.”
Mr Rochford explained that membership also provides an additional platform for hotels to engage audiences both in Ireland and overseas, which is particularly important as the hospitality industry rebuilds following the pandemic.
Stephen Belton, Chairperson of Original Irish Hotels added; “We, as Ireland’s largest collective of privately owned Hotels, Castles and Country Houses, are absolutely delighted to welcome The Lodge into our group. The Lodge mirrors exactly our ethos of offering quality, unique Irish hospitality to our guests from home and abroad. The collaboration among the collective has been particularly helpful over the last few challenging years.”
The Original Irish Hotel Group is an invaluable source of information for leisure and business guests to use to inspire their next trip across Ireland, which can now incorporate a visit to The Lodge in Cong, Co Mayo.
