Pets

A warm welcome awaits

Here at The Lodge at Ashford Castle we love pets and treat them like VIPs (Very Important Pets). We are delighted to be able to cater for your four legged member of the family and you can be assured your pet will be treated like royalty from the time they check in until departure.

With the vast Ashford Estate on the doorstep, your dog will love the never ending walks in the countryside as much as you will!

Our dog friendly rooms can cater for a maximum of two dogs per room. On booking we would request the sizes of the dogs (small, medium or large) in order to make sure we allocate you a room which will be comfortable for you and your dog.

For the duration of your stay we will provide a comfy bed, fluffy towels, food and water bowls and their favourite treat. Please feel free to bring your dog’s own food or alternatively we have a special dog and cat menu available from the kitchen including:

  • Scooby Doo Snacks
    Roast Marrow Bone Stuffed with Peanut Butter €6
    (unsalted peanut butter is a good source of protein & contains hearty healthy fats)
    Bangers & Mash with Carrots & Gravy €8
    (carrots are low-calorie, high in fibre & great for dogs teeth)
    Yoghurt Bread & Butter Pudding €4
    (yoghurt is high in calcium & protein & can aid the digestive system)
  • Garfield’s Grub
    Salmon on Toast €6
    (oily fish will keep your pet's coat healthy & shiny, whilst supporting the immune system)
    Lasagne Bolo €8
    (Garfield’s favourite, high in protein and antioxidants)
    Milk Choc Cappuccino €3
    (hot milk, a little chocolate, froth, good for the bones!)

Dogs are welcome at a cost of €10 per night per dog and we will retain a €500.00 deposit on check-in that is separate to any pre-authorisation for your room. We will retain this money until the day of departure once your room has been inspected by our Accommodation Manager and the money will be refunded if no damage is found.
