Guests at Ashford Castle can enjoy a new al fresco dining option this summer with the launch of the hotel’s Perfect Picnics, made up of local and Irish produce. Named after characters from the Quiet Man, which was filmed in Cong and on the Ashford estate, there are three Perfect Picnic* menus that guest can choose from.
Priced for two people, the Michaleen Flynn picnic retails at 65.00, The John Wayne at 70 euro or the Maureen O’Hara picnic at 80 euro.
Ashford Castle intends to eliminate the use of disposable plastics by next year. Therefore only bio-degradable items are used when preparing picnics, and wherever possible, only organic sustainable produce from local artisan suppliers are used in the picnic, as are organic vegetables and salads from the three polytunnels on the estate.
