What a wonderful post. My husband and I are planning to celebrate our 15th year anniversary at the Ashford Castle. We are coming in on the 28th of December and then flying back home, to Chicago, on December 31st. A total of three nights and four days. My husband and I have never been outside of the country, United States, and the last trip we went on was our honeymoon to Hawaii. We are looking forward to it. My husband is Irish and this is a dream for him. I was wondering, though, if travel weather wise to Ireland in December is ideal? What are your thoughts on that? We don't plan on renting a car since we have such little time, but did book dinners in the formal dining room as well as two picnic lunches on the grounds. I was hoping to schedule a horse back ride as well. Thoughts? Recommendations? Reassurances? I am hoping we aren't making a mistake to travel to Ireland in December. The plane tickets have already been purchased and the room reserved. Hoping you have some good thoughts for me. Thank you again for your wonderful post. Amy (Illinois, United States, mother to four and married to Philip for almost 15 years)....:)

December is not great time to go to Ashford Castle because there are many outdoor activities there and the weather in December can be too cold and wet for those activities. 1 picnic is enough, the food is as the same as afternoon tea. So afternoon tea is smarter option. One night in formal dining room is enough. Try dinner is another dining room downstairs and the Lodge restaurant. They are also nice. Do the boat tour, even if the weather is not great, you will learn a lot about the history. We did the walk with hawks and it was very interesting. Spa is just okay in my opinion. Pool is too small, massage was just so so.
I would like to organise a day trip and access to dining room for a wheelchair bound person is this possible
