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

We had stayed several years ago with Benita and Sam over the Christmas holidays. We had a incredible time and Benita and Sam treated us like family. We knew that when we returned to Ireland(and that took too many years), we had to stay with them again. We were so happy to see them and they greeted us with equal... More

Stayed at Ross for two nights with my family of 5 on our recent 2 week vacation to England, France, Ireland, and Scotland. What a unique and great stay. Very atmospheric and just the right amount of historic flavor without sacrificing creature comforts. Benita and Sam the owners were absolutely great. Friendly and warm! If you want to come back...
