Lydon’s Lodge Hotel is another of the more popular places to stay in Cong and, like Ryan’s, it’s nice and central.

The Lodge at Ashford Castle is our favourite luxury accommodation in Cong! In fact, few castle hotels in Ireland can go toe-to-toe with this place.

It’s less than a five-minute drive from the town and it’s set in 350 acres of woodlands and manicured gardens, right on the banks of Lough Corrib. 

Now, you can stay at the castle or the lodge. There are several rooms and suites to choose from at the lodge.

All are uniquely decorated with contemporary country decor, have lake or estate views, and a modern en-suite.

The Lake View Suites are our go-to for a romantic getaway, as each has a private terrace/balcony, and a lavish bathtub and shower. This is the best of the handful of hotels in Cong for good reason.

4. Danagher’s Hotel Cong
