Win a Night in a Ashford Castle

Win a Night in a Ashford Castle


Ireland’s oldest inland boat race will take place on August 22nd, with up to 30 sailboats taking part in the Cong-Galway Boat Race.

Ashford Castle has been announced as the 2020 race sponsor, a partnership which is made even more special through a shared connection with the famous Guinness family.

A wonderful day out for sailing enthusiasts and spectators, fans of the time-honoured boat race can line up along the Quincentennial Bridge in Galway, and watch as the racing boats are forced to capsize quickly and expertly in a bid to get their masts past the bridge’s obstruction after they cross the finish line. Sounds like fun.

The event is open to all dinghies with a PN of 1400 or below - See the RYA Portsmouth Number List HERE.

The winning Helm will be awarded a one-night stay at the iconic 5-star Ashford Castle on Lough Corrib, while the crew member will receive a luxury night away at The Lodge at Ashford at Lisloughrey pier.
