Baron Ashbourne, of Ashbourne in the County of Meath, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1886 for Edward Gibson, the Lord Chancellor of Ireland. His grandson, the third Baron (who succeeded his uncle), was a vice admiral in the Royal Navy. As of 2010 the title is held by the third Baron's son, the fourth Baron, who succeeded in 1983.

John George Gibson, younger brother of the first Baron, was also a distinguished lawyer. The Honourable Violet Gibson, who attempted to assassinate Benito Mussolini in 1926, was the daughter of the first Baron.[citation needed]
