A little out of the way, but so worth the trip, from the moment we arrived until our departure, which sadly was only a single night. We were lucky enough to have the castle to ourselves which was awesome. wandering indoors and outdoors observing the scenery and the awesome collections behind glass was amazing. A fabulous fresh organic dinner made... More

We had a great stay in August. We had booked for two nights however our original flight from Canada was canceled and we eventually arrived a day late. Jackie graciously offered to let us stay another night at no additional cost, and even upgraded one of our rooms for one night. She made some great suggestions on places to visit... More

We were stuck in Kells without a place to stay and found this B&B almost by accident. The castle itself is really amazing - we were "upgraded" to one of the rooms in the tower, which was a lot of fun to stay in (if you don't let the ghost stories get to you). Jackie and Richard were charming and... More

I could not recommend Ross Castle enough. The castle is one of the most stunning and unique settings that I have ever stayed in. Jackie, Richards and Staphanies hospitality was exceptional. My friends and I also enjoyed a beautiful evening meal which was absolutely delicious. We stayed in the top tower that had beautiful views and was very warm. I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in Ross Castle and could easily have stayed another night. It was an enchanting experience in a truly authentic Irish Castle. We booked last minute and did not know what to expect particularly after some rather negative reviews we had read. We stayed in the upper room of the Tower and found our... More

I went here with a group of friends, but before going I had heard some horrible stories, but knew it was under new management. I cannot fault this place, it is so clean and an amazing location. We had a bbq in the back the first night ourselves. breakfast both mornings was delicious, fresh and just what you need. The... More

A little out of the way, but worth the extra few miles. This lovely 500 year castle was sympathetically extended some years ago to provide 5 bedrooms and it was really charming place to stay. We were skeptical after a few bad historic reviews on here, but after seeing that new management had taken over recently, we decided to go... More

Our stay at Ross castle was magical! We would love to go back as soon as we can swing it! The castle is beautiful, in a lovely, country setting. Jackie and Richard are the most friendly, accommodating hosts! I needed a vegetarian dinner, they made it happen. Thank you so much! And the food was superb! The room (master bedroom,... More

"How cool to stay in a castle while we're traveling in Ireland", you think to yourself. And, so, you begin searching for lovely one. And some of them look all dark and spidery and a little TOO castle-y. And some of them look like posh hotels that aren't at all castle-y enough. And then, if you're lucky, you stumble upon... More

We stayed one night here in the upper tower and had the entire castle to ourselves. It's a beautiful, rustic old castle with clean and modern accommodations. The owners were very nice and serves a delicious breakfast in the morning before we left.
