Potterheads unite, Ashford Castle has launched a Wizard School to rival Hogwarts itself!

Ashford Castle, which is celebrating its 800th year of luxury hospitality, promises to transform its hotel and grounds into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for one week only this Halloween. From October 26th until November 3rd, the hotel will utilise its forests, passageways and turrets to hold Forbidden Forest treasure hunts, house elf cookery classes, a chamber of witchcraft and wizardry and visits with Dingle the owl.

The in-house cinema will also hold a Harry Potter movie viewing, including complimentary popcorn and sweets, so the little ones can wind down their magical day in style.
