How else to describe Ross Castle B&B... a trip to Ireland has SO many highlights... but for us, Ross Castle B&B was the highlight of them all. This outpost on the pale, built in the 1500's, is steeped in history and was everything we hoped for and more, having read all the stories and reviews. Having made all arrangements with... More

We spent last night here and it was an amazing experience. The owners were so friendly and helpful and we had the whole castle to ourselves for the night. Breakfast was very tasty and plenty of it this morning. On arrival we were offered tea and coffee. I Always wanted to stay overnight in a castle and it was better... More

My husband and I spent two weeks in Ireland for our honeymoon, and my sister told us we were obligated to stay in a castle for at least one night. Unlike many of the manors-turned-hotels in Ireland that describe themselves as castles, Ross is an actual castle, and a cozy, delightful one at that. It was by far my favorite... More

This isn't the most fancy castle you can spend the night in in Ireland, however it happened to be one of our favorites. The drive was fun, and beautiful (as most are there). We were greeted with tea, coffee and biscuits, as well as some very great conversation. Since it was a bit off season we were the only guests... More

As other reviewers have stated, it's quite a drive to find this Ross Castle. Even with a GPS(satnav), we ended up asking a local for direction. He even led us 3-4 miles to within visual range. This is a very well preserved Norman tower house furnished with antiques from earlier ages. Our hosts were great and cooked us lamb and... More

This is not a fancy castle as castles go. In Ireland, there are lots of castle hotels that are very fancy. And yes, we did stay in some of those. At Ross Castle, the manager met us when we drove up and offered us tea and biscuits (cookies). It IS a long way from anywhere, but it's worth the drive.... More

What an amazing location and rich history! We booked the room at the very top of the castle (if stairs frighten you....stay down the bottom!!!). The room was warm, airy and the bathroom sparkling clean and modern conveniences. Breakfast was delicious and the lady of the house, Jackie, an absolute delight. I truly didnt want to leave. Hopefully we will... More

This was an awesome stay and even better host....including the ghost. We did actually have orbs that showed up in our pictures. The rooms so are very romantic and we'll appointed. Just be aware that If you are staying in the tower, it is very skinny stairs up to the rooms. Thank you!

We drove all over looking for Ross Castle. When I had booked it I actually thought it was a different location (there are quite a few Ross Castles). I was traveling with my 16 year old daughter and my mother. We arrived and then found out we were the only guests for the night. The owner was was very nice... More
