The setting as beautiful for starters. You are nestled in to beautiful green hills on the edge of Loch Sheelin. The Castle itself is quite the experience if you are a lover of history or interested in the rumors of friendly ghosts. You wont be disappointed. The service was the most personal and warm we received, and that is saying... More

I was lucky enough to be the only guest booked at the castle during my stay. I was in the lower tower room and the newly renovated bathroom was exquisite. The carpet made the room cozy and the bed was more comfortable than all of the other B&B's I stayed at. I highly recommend a stay here, even if you... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely evening at the castle last week! We weren't quite prepared for just what a unique experience this old castle was. The place was immaculately kept with gorgeous and unique antique touches all around, and Vanessa took such good care of us. Breakfast was a wonderful spread - the kind where you keep eating... More

Originally I was looking for a place to buy around Lake Sheelin and at that time Ross Castle was for sale. For just private use it seemed too big for us, but since I liked the place very much I came back here many times. We never stayed there over night, but it is a fascinating place inside and and...

Our stay at Ross Castle was perfect from start to finish. We felt so welcome and had the run of the whole castle tower. It's the real deal, renovated to be comfortable and authentic. Highly recommend adding the dinner package to your visit. Ours was delicious and better than any five-star restaurant. Vanessa and her team also catered perfectly to... More

It you want to stay in an old castle that still looks rustic, but is comfortable, then this is it! Jackie is so friendly and helpful...she sent us to visit Loughcrew and Fore Abbey and they were well worth it. We also saw a fox!

We stayed at Ross castle on a whim as a stopover in our drive north. I wish we had more time to experience everything they offered. It is a real castle, beautifully maintained and the interiors are fabulously curated with old dramatic furniture and decorations. The proprietor was fantastic, eager to offer advice and cooked a delicious Irish breakfast. Everything... More

Such a fun experience! We were able to stay in the castle by ourselves and had a lovely breakfast the next morning. I would highly recommend staying here if you are in Central Ireland. Nice beds, wonderful views, and fun history.

We have been going to Ross castle for around thirteen years, we have enjoyed every visit. Our last weekend trip on the 24th and 25th of June was no exception, Jackie and Richard have updated a lot of the rooms, everything done to blend in and compliment this historic castle. Don't waste time going to another castle, Ross castle in... More
