My husband and I stayed here for a night on our first visit to Ireland. The area is so peaceful and beautiful sitting right by a lake. Jackie (the new manager) was very accommodating and made us feel right at home. She brought fresh cut flowers to our room after our arrival :) She was so kind and made a... More

If you are looking for a 5 star resort, this place is not for you. BUT if you would like to experience what it may have been like to actually live in a castle 500 years ago, you will love this place. The castle has been modernized with electrical and plumbing but the true character is predominant. The furniture, antiques,... More

Had been here before last sept and although good for our paranormal investigation, the place was very dirty and unkempt, forward to 26th June 2015 and wow what a difference. Has been taken over by new managers Jackie and Richard. Really lovely couple. On walking into the place I could see straight away the difference in the place. So clean... More

When we first arrived at Ross Castle we were enchanted by the remote, authentic castle ambience. The castle is situated in a lovely rural spot next to a lake and a small wooded area. As we entered we were greated by Jackie with tea and bicuits and then we had a tour of the castle interior. The modernization is minimal... More

We stayed in Ireland for about 10 days, in hostels the whole time except one night we stayed in the lower room of tower of Ross Castle. We enjoyed it very much! Our room was at the top of a spiral staircase--the four poster bed was comfy, and the bathroom, although small and oddly angled, was nice. The shower looks... More

We stayed here one night in the lower tower room with dinner included. This place is recently under new management and we had no complaints about the service. The new owner was delightful and the dinner and breakfast were delicious! The furnishings were eclectic and added to the experience. To get to the tower rooms you have to climb a... More

This is unique Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in one of the tower room and enjoyed the experience. We did not encounter any of the ghost as some of the other guest did. My grandfather was born and raised in a cottage located right outside of the castle wall. The stay had a lot of personal meaning.
