The place is 30 mins from Galway and well signed posted of the main road. For some mysterious reason no taxi driver seems to be able to find it. Once you leave the main road you follow a couple of narrow lanes which make the place secluded and set in a quite romantic and beautiful place. The rooms are decorated... More

We booked the Ross Lake from Australia as we were having a lot of trouble getting accommodation in the area. What a fantastic surprise. Of all our accommodation in London and Ireland this was by far the best. We only stayed 1 night but wish it had been longer, would have loved to explore the gardens and surrounding area. Henry...

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
