This country inn was the perfect Irish experience in the Connemara countryside. Elaine and Henry were wonderful hosts. The food was delicious, the Irish coffees outstanding and the ambience lovely. The rooms were very comfortable with all amenities. We would love to return someday.

The Ross Lake House Hotel is extremely charming. It has old world character with important new age amenities (wifi, updated bathroom, etc). The owners are such lovely people, wonderful couple. They make you feel as if you are staying at their house, like part of the family. The hotel is tucked away down a long narrow road. Once you turn... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights 5 and 6 June. We had stayed at Ross Lake House for a holiday many years ago and it had to be first choice when planning to return to the area when touring. A lovely surprise to find it just as wonderful as ever! A true country house hotel with two attentive... More

I'm a little late with my review; we stayed back in June but even now it left a lasting impression on us. We spent two lovely nights with our hosts, Henry and Elaine, and wished we could have stayed longer. It was the 5th week of our holiday and we found our stay helped recharge our 'batteries'.

I'm a little late with this review as we stopped here end of August. Very isolated, quiet, relaxing hotel. We loved this hotel from the minute we drove up the drive. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and pleasant to stay in. There is a set routine for dinner if you dine there(very quaint), amazing food and very friendly service from... More

My fiancee and I chose to end our trip around Western Europe in Ireland, and I found this B&B on another travel site. We got a decent rate, and were not used to how things were priced in Irish B&B's as we are probably younger than their target market. In fact when we first checked in I got the vibe... More
