Ashford Castle…. March 2011

Hey Guys,
The week of my birthday was beautiful weather-wise so my parents, Aunt and myself decided to visit the Beautiful Ashford Castle in Cong on the mayo/Galway border as I’d never been before and it has just recently been opened up to the public to unlimited access to the stunning grounds. As it’s a hotel and an extremely swanky one at that, the interior of the castle is off limits to non patrons.

Here are a few pictures I sourced from the internet, various tourism websites showing some of the inside!

And here’s an Aerial picture of the magnificent grounds….

And with that, here’s a video of all the pictures I took on my exploration on the day ^_^

Anyhow, hope ye enjoyed this.

It was a beautiful place to visit and I will definitely return sometime soon!!

      Yeah, Ireland is covered in stunning castles of all types. A lot like this are hotels and there are also loads of beautiful remains dotting the landscape! I plan on visiting more during the summer! x
