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

We stayed at Ross Castle for 3 nights, and our stay was absolutely great! First of all, the castle it self, the history and the surroundings were truly beautiful. Our hosts Jackie and Vanessa were lovely and made us a nice Irish breakfast every morning. Moreover, the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was recently renovated and very spacious. Lastly,...

I'd worried about Ross Castle B&B because I couldn't believe we would actually sleep in a Medieval Castle for 150 Euro (including breakfast). But it was AWESOME. We hadn't scheduled the dinner that was offered on the website. Figured we'd deal with food when we arrived. Vanessa suggested a nice nearby (6-mile away) restaurant at a hotel, but Jackie indicated... More

A hidden treasure in rural Ireland. Our stay was terrific! The hosts, Jackie, Richard and staff are so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious and well presented with exceptional service. Be sure to pre-order dinner if you want to stay in and have a wonderful meal at the authentic antique dining room table. The guest living room is very... More

Stayed in upper tower. Lots of stairs to climb but totally worth it. Bring small bags. The owner is great and the common area great for meeting other guests. Breakfast was really good. Be sure to hear the history of the place from Jackie. This place is in the middle of nowhere so be sure you have a good functioning... More

We spent our 20th Anniversary at Ross Castle in May 2016. Our stay there was the best part of our visit to Ireland. Since I am vegan, Jackie prepared a three-course vegan dinner for us that was fantastic. Richard entertained us with his keen understanding of the area and the history of the castle. The castle is beautiful - very... More

Beautiful grounds, wonderful people, and very, very peaceful stay. Richard and Jackie were superb hosts, making us feel right at home. The food was excellent as well. It doesn't get more authentically Irish than this!
