The world’s best hotel, located in Co Mayo, is set to become even more magical this autumn as they begin their family retreat wizardry classes.
Ashford Castle is an incredibly beautiful and luxurious hotel in the west of Ireland. This summer, it was named the world’s top hotel by online travel magazine Virtuoso.
However, never happy to rest on their laurels, the staff at Ashford are continuing to lead the way in holiday activities and weekend retreats.
The 13th century castle is now offering family weekend breaks which include the Wizard School package, which involves tutorship for children and adults in mystical spellcasting.
The package is perfect for Harry Potter enthusiasts, and allows families to spend some quality time together in a magical setting.
Ashford Castle is the ideal location for sorcery and adventure with its long winding passageways, high ceilings and mystical surroundings.
The Wizard Package is priced at €1,220 for two adults and two children sharing a deluxe family room and includes two nights with breakfast and an evening meal.
As well as learning about wizardry, guests can also enjoy a hawk walk, treasure hunt, movies and cookery classes.
The innovation is another sign that Ashford Castle is going from strength to strength. It also offers various packages for guests catering to their every need, whether it be adventure, detox, relaxation or romantic breaks.
Ashford was subjected to a multi-million Euro refurbishment in recent years and the results are spectacular.
It was a worthy winner of the world’s best hotel award earlier this year. The hotel perfectly captures the magic of Ireland and its beautiful countryside.
It is now restored to its former glory that made it the hotel of choice for characters throughout history, including legendary actors John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara, who stayed at Ashford during the filming of classic movie The Quiet Man.
