Red Carnation Hotels is part of the TTC family of brands and works in proud partnership with its TreadRight Foundation to #MakeTravelMatter.
At The Lodge at Ashford Castle, we support charities such as WE Charity and are dedicated to eliminating unnecessary single-use plastics. The Red Carnation family was proud to restore the Ashford Estate to its former glory and we continue to work closely with the local community to preserve it for future generations.
Last Straw Campaign
Did you know that the world uses over 500 million unrecyclable plastic straws a day? Plastic straws are one of many types of plastic polluting our earth and harming our wildlife. We are passionate about eradicating single use plastics. The campaign strives to educate the public about its effects on our health, our environment, and our oceans.

Polytunnel to plate
We launched our third polytunnel at The Lodge, which enables us to enjoy fresh produce on site and guests can be involved too.
A polytunnel tour commences at 11.30am each morning alongside our chefs, to pick vegetables and forage other herbs that will then be prepared for their evening meal.
