We really enjoyed our stay with Rosaleen & Denis, it was one of the most enjoyable B&Bs of our holiday around Ireland and the UK. Rosaleen provided us with tea and scones on arrival which was greatly appreciated after a day in the car driving to Killarney. The breakfasts were a real treat and enough to keep us going til...

This was one of the best bed and breakfasts we stayed while on vacation. The landscaping was very inviting. The location was very convenient to downtown. Rosaleen and Denis were very friendly and accommodating. They made you feel right at home. The breakfast was very tasty and filling. The beds were very comfortable and we were very well rested to...

We stayed at the Ross Castle Lodge. RCL, for 3 days starting from 6-19. It is located on the road to Ross Castle and is very quiet, except for the occasional horse drawn carriage that goes by on it's way to or from the Castle. That first night we were running late and called ahead to let the proprietors, Denis... More

This B & B is a great place to stay. Why? Rosaleen & Denis run the Ross Castle Lodge and are great hosts.They are so pleasant and helpful, this is the third time we have been there (last time 2008) and they treated us just like part of the family.For breakfast you have a good choice and all tastes delicious....

If all of western Ireland seems to be a land out of a fairy tale, then Ross Castle Lodge and its grounds are the fairy tale within the fairy tale. It's a lovely cottage surrounded by lovely gardens. The owners(?) are extremely kind and presented me with tea and a scone upon my arrival. They were also very helpful with... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Ross Castle Lodge and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The room was the most luxurious of all the b&bs we stayed in, including down comforters, Avoca mohair throws and a bathroom I can only describe as "enormous". The room was filled with lots of thoughtful touches too. Also the room... More

I can't imagine any B&B being ranked any higher than this. It was immaculate and rooms were large and wonderful. The location is quiet and near the castle and downtown. The grounds are colorful with flowers and gardens. The best though was our hostess Rosalie. She was an absolute delight and very friendly. This was the best B&B on our... More

My husband and I stayed at Ross Castle Lodge in May of 2012 for 2 nights. It is a delightful house in beautiful grounds on the road to Ross Castle. After travelling around the UK and Ireland for 5 weeks and negotiating many steep flights of stairs it was really nice to be in single storey b and b! The... More

This was a great place to stay, staying with my wife, 2-year old daughter and parents-in-law for 2 nights. Dennis and Rosalie were able to accommodate us at the last minute even though we had no reservations (having thought we did previously). We are grateful to them and the place itself was great, rooms are very clean and comfortable. Location... More

We stayed two nights, wished it had been longer. The B&B is a 15 minute walk from town on a lovely pathway directly out the front of the lodge through the National Park. Ross Castle a 5 minute walk down the road, with a great narrative tour. Being a gardener, having a large window out of our room onto Proprietors'... More
