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.

We stayed at Ross Castle our first night in Ireland, after a transatlantic flight and a long day, so we were exhausted. I would have liked to stay up for tea, but it was all we could do to lug our things up to the top of the tower and go to sleep. In fact, it was MORE than we... More

If you are booking this B&B to experience a 16th century castle, then this is for you. Booked a stay with dinner included. It was very interesting - stayed in a tower room which is at least 500 years old, so couldn't fault it as a genuine experience. However, I have to agree with the visitors who say it isn't... More

Thank you Bonita & Sam! We enjoyed our stay with you, your Irish breakfast was wonderful, especially the black pudding. You out did yourself for our evening meals we enjoyed every bite. As for ghosts... well I saw something in photographs that my sister in law took that I can't explain but did not see anything odd with my eyes,... More

My husband wanted to stay in a castle and I wanted some sort of ghostly experience. Done! Benita and Sam are wonderful hosts. Great experience, wonderful food, fantastic people. The location worked well for seeing area sights. Can't wait to go back.

A wonderful location and lovely hostess Benita made for a special stay here. We'd booked only one night on our tight schedule but wished we could have stayed longer. Originally booking the lower room (hubby not wanting to take a suitcase to the top,) but since we were the only ones booked for the night, Benita offered us the top... More

I pre-purchased a two night stay for two persons at Ross Castle and, it is true to say Deirdre and I were filled with curious anticipation at what might lay in store for us given it's supernatural billing! We were allocated a room in the annexe to the castle proper. We left after just one night! The operational aspect of... More

I bought this night away as a present for my husbands birthday. I booked it at the last minute as the weather was so good and was very glad I did. The scenery around the castle was beautiful and we had a lovely long walk into Finea. On returning to the Castle for dinner, we met up with the other... More
