Extraordinary Irish experiences

Discover and immerse yourself in these unique, authentic and intimate experiences of the West of Ireland, exclusively curated and especially hosted by Ashford Castle’s Experience Ambassador. 

During your day of discovery, you will be welcomed into the homes and workshops of three of our treasured artisan partners. Engage all of your senses with the sounds of the workshop, the beautiful landscapes, the smell of Irish rain and the taste of the finest Irish food.

We have exclusively curated a collection of Irish experiences under four themes; Irish food, indigenous craft, music and story, and the real Connemara.

This is a unique opportunity to meet the flagbearers of traditional Irish culture…
