Working at Ashford was very different, as the standards they have for cleaning are very high. Although they give less rooms in general to each chambermaid, these rooms still take a lot to actually clean them, and it was still quite a stressful job.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Hard manual labour

For those that see their career in hospitality it's best place to work, lots of career progression opportunities. Great benefits including uniforms, food during the shift, lots of discounts for hotel products also holidays, possibility to relocate to another RCH Hotel which Ashford Castle is a part of.

You are expected to be fully dedicated to your role. It's a rural setting and most people work shift hours so can be demanding on the employee in terms of having a work, life balance.
Pros
free lunch and great training availible
Cons
short breaks and long days

Avoid this place, treats employees like dirt and terrible pay. Not worth it and HR is complete waste of time. Don't apply for the job unless you enjoy being treated poorly by management.

Got paid terribly for the work you put in. It was really social, the teams are fun but the management is rude and think they're above everyone else. Everyone you work with, you live with and socialise with.

love working here just the salary does not meet the cost off living. it is fine if you are someone who wishes to live in staff accomadation and have the perks off that but for people supporting families it is not enough

Absolutely amazing place to work. each and every person there is extremely kind and genuine. the learning gained from there is next to none. the only downside to the establishment is its location, extremely rural with not much going on around it.

I have moved to Ireland to work with this company and realized that the high expectations I had are not being filled.

I like to live in Ireland and want to work in another environment and be happy in here.
Pros
Beautiful Spa

i personally couldn't say anything bad about my experience working with Ashford Castle or the Red Carnation group. the management are your friends while still conducting them selfs to the highest level expected of them, and the people in the kitchen, and front of house are like your best friends, and at every chance they all try and keep the atmosphere professional and calm but with jokes and funny moments galore as always will be in life. bacicaly what in trying to say is they are like a family and they dont even try to hard every one was easy to get along with and always there if you had a rough service or bad day

It's a nice place to work for a while, but I wouldn't want to stay there too long because the village life is just not for me.
