#flashbackfriday + Ashford Castle

This #flashbackfriday post is dedicated to our trip last year to Ireland. Below are photos from the Ashford Castle in west Ireland. It is a stunning, medieval castle that has been expanded many times over the centuries. Formerly belonging to the Guinness family, it’s now a 5 star hotel and home to Irelands School Of Falconry. It has been called the world’s best hotel, and I would so agree! As you drive in through the beautiful decorative entrance, and over the castle moat, you feel as though you’ve truly stepped back in time to the medieval era. If you’re in Ireland, this is a must-see! We fell in love with this magical castle.

Lastly, their School Of Falconry is one of the oldest in Ireland. They offer private “Hawk Walks” – you’re given a leather glove, and your own Hawk to walk with and fly through the gardens and woods with.  As you’re walking with your instructor, the hawk will soar off of your glove, fly around, and then come back to you. Our Hawk was awesome! 🙂  It was such an incredible experience that we’ll never forget! Here’s the link to their website.
