AshtonS Gastropub

Modern Gastropub serving quality, fresh, honest food & a wide range of Craft Beers

Our History

Ashtons Gastropub was taken over in 2012 by Ronan Kinsella and Paul Lenehan who also own & operate Hartes of Kildare in Kildare Town and The Dew Drop Inn Kill Co Kildare.

With over 40 years experience in hospitality between them Ronan & Paul first met when they worked together as part of the pre-opening team at the Millrace Hotel in Bunclody.

Full of passion and drive for the industry, in 2005 they made the leap and went in to business for themselves. 13 years on and theirs is a friendship and business partnership that became family when Ronan married Paul’s sister.

With 7 children between them family is firmly at the heart of this business. Today their passion for the industry is as strong as it was in 2005 and together with their dedicated team they are constantly working on new ideas such as expanding their own range or craft beers and their cookery school while ensuring that they offer their staff a rewarding working environment and their customers a memorable dining experience.

In 2016 Sean Forde joined Ronan & Paul as Co-owner of Ashtons. No stranger to the business Sean had worked with Paul & Ronan for the previous 5 years as Manager of their sister pub The Dew Drop Inn in Kill.
