Excellent stay in a castle Once you have seen and listened to other castles you understand why this castle looks like it does and why it is in the wonderful condition it is in also.Ghostly experience was given which increased our stay in happiness. Then to have a breakfast of such quality and freshness was the ending to a fantastic... More

How can you visit Ireland without a stay in at least one castle? You may even find you have the castle all to yourselves. Ross Castle offers breathtaking views of Lough Sheelin from the tower of the castle. Be ready to climb a winding staircase to the Upper Tower Room. There’s also a path to Lough Sheelin for peaceful views... More

Once again Sam and Benita were great host. It was beautiful weather and to walk down to Lough was great. It was great to mingle with the ghost again and can say positive proof for me. The evening meal in hall was great and it was great to sit around and read other peoples happenings in the castle. It is... More

We stayed in the top of the tower and it was so much fun. It really had the feel of an old time castle. Benita was a gracious host. Make sure to have the four course dinner... she is a wonderful cook!

Excellent directions from Benita, found it right away. We were staying the night with one other couple there. Very comfortable and the grounds were beautiful!! We stayed in the lower tower room, very cool and a little spooky, Lovely antiques throughout and the breakfast was excellent.

Directions provided were outstanding but I still managed to get lost, I felt so bad because I could not let Benita know as my cell did not work there. Accommodations were fantastic and were definitely a highlight of our trip, my son spooked himself out reading guest reviews about ghosts lol. Benita and Sam were incredible and their hospitality was... More

I enjoyed that this castle looked like a castle inside and hadn't been "moderned up". We were the only people staying at Ross. It was comfortable, nice host, but could have used a good cleaning. Loved the location and the scenery.

My family spent a night in Ross Castle for my son's 11th birthday. He wanted to sleep in a "real castle" and it is. We slept in the upper tower room. The whole place is furnished with antiques, there are great views across the lake! The rooms are comfortable, and the place definitely has an "atmosphere." It was downright spooky... More

Want to experience a night in a real Castle this is the one to choose. The Castle originally built by the Nugent family is delightful. The tower is the place to stay, it is quiet comfortable and offers an experience that is hard to find in the day and age. Benita and Sam made us feel welcome and were very... More
