George V Dining Room

Dine like royalty

Ashford Castle has been hosting distinguished guests for almost 800 years – one of the most prominent being the Prince of Wales, who subsequently became George V of England. In honour of his visit in 1905, the Guinness family built a special dining room which still bears his name proudly to this day.

The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe. 

Whet your appetite 

Choose from dishes such as our Slow Roasted Rib of Beef from our carving trolley served with a homemade béarnaise sauce and a red wine and shallot jus. To end your meal an array of tempting desserts await including Nyangbo frozen chocolate mousse served with estate grown crabpear gel, chocolate cremeux and pear and vanilla sorbet and salted chocolate crisp. 

Please note a dinner jacket is required for Gentlemen and tie requested for the George V Dining Room.
