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.

Jackie and Husband Richard are not only marvelous hosts but also truly, genuinely lovely people. Comfortable beds pillows and linens. Great night sleep.Modern bath and electric.Lovely antique furnishings. Stayed in upper Tower room and was worth the climb.(no big luggage put necessities in overnight bag). Our hosts were very knowledgeable in regards to the history of the property and surrounding... More

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
