Ashford Castle Welcomes Irish Wolf Hound Pups

Co. Mayo’s 350-acre Ashford Castle estate has welcomed two Irish Wolfhound pups.


The five-star hotel, which is located in Cong, Co Mayo, has announced the addition of Murphy and Mulligan to its Irish Wolfhound pack.

The castle estate has long been synonymous with the Irish Wolfhound, and visitors to the pet-friendly hotel are already be familiar with the estate’s Irish Wolfhounds Cronan and Garvan.

With Cronan and Garvan moving into semi-retirement, Mulligan and Murphy will take on the older duo’s stately duties at the castle.

Guests can join the hounds for a walk in the woods surrounding Ashford Estate at 8.30am each morning. Following their walk, the Irish Wolfhounds visit Ashford Castle from 10am to 11am where they meet and greet with residents of the hotel and pose for Instagrammable moments.

Ashford Castle is part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection.
