Ashford Castle, Ireland's most historic five-star castle/hotel, is commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Academy Award-winning movie The Quiet Man. A festival in County Mayo's quaint village of Cong, where much of the movie was filmed, will kick off the local festivities on the weekend of August 26-28. Maureen O'Hara, who starred in the movie alongside John Wayne (both of whom stayed at Ashford Castle while filming), will be present at the festival.

Ashford Castle is set on 350 acres in County Mayo, on the shores of Lough Corrib and the River Cong, with a spectacular backdrop of woodlands, lake, river, and mountains. It features 83 guestrooms and is renowned for a range of country sports including an equestrian center, fly fishing, an exclusive nine-hole golf course and Ireland's first school of falconry. Several dining rooms and bars, along with a gracious afternoon tea service are among the amenities.
