Our peaceful setting, overlooking leafy parkland, offers the feeling of a quiet seaside retreat, and yet we are just a short stroll down the gentle hill to the heart of St Peter Port, known as one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns.
Our luxurious hotel offers the perfect location in this charming seaside town, with magnificent views across the sea. Savour exquisite dining with fresh local seafood in stylish surroundings, as our dedicated team ensures your memorable stay exceeds your highest expectations.
The Duke Of Richmond is temporarily closed due the current travel restrictions. During this time, our team will be working hard to ensure the hotel is at its best, and ready to welcome you back soon.
Exceeding expectations at every turn, our historic hotel has a team who take genuine pride in delivering impeccable service. Set within the enchanting Ashford Estate, enjoy delicious cuisine in Wilde's Restaurant, a host of exciting estate activities, and relaxing moments looking across Lough Corrib.
Every team member is empowered to make a genuine difference to each guest’s day, offering an authentic Irish charm and considerate attention to detail. A favourite warming drink after a day on the lake, romantic, candlelit turndowns – these all create a cosseting country house experience that keep guests coming back time and again.
As part of the celebrated Ashford Castle estate, we benefit from an extraordinary collection of activities, from Ireland’s first and finest falconry school, to horse-riding, golf, fishing, tennis, off-road driving, zip-wiring and tree-climbing. Our in-house team also has long-standing relationships with local artisans and can arrange a variety of bespoke experiences that bring this beautiful corner of Ireland to life.
Our passion for delicious, creative cuisine is showcased in Wilde’s, run by Executive Chef Jonathan Keane who was recently named the best chef in Ireland by The Good Eating Guide, and makes the most of the freshest, organic ingredients from local artisan suppliers, as well as home-grown produce from the grounds of the estate. The vibrant Quay Bar and Brasserie offers innovative cocktails and laid-back comfort cuisine with spectacular views from our al fresco terrace.
The Lodge enjoys the feel of a relaxed rural country house hotel while being an intrinsic part of the truly remarkable Ashford Castle estate. Once home to the Guinness family, the historic estate has won countless awards and covers 350 acres of formal, manicured gardens and wild, rambling woodland rich in wildlife – all right there on our doorstep.
