My wife wanted to spend a night in a medieval castle during our trip to Ireland. So we booked a night in Ross Castle, a 500-year old structure 50 kilometers from Dublin. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Vanessa, whirling dervish full of smiles and Gaelic charm. She told us all about the castle and showed us to our... More

We stayed for one night and regret not staying for longer. The castle itself is wonderful, the location is peaceful but the hosts make the stay. I highly encourage opting for the farm to table dinner. Vanessa made an amazing dinner that my husband and I agreed was the best meal of our entire trip. Jackie and her husband gave... More

Jackie met us there when we arrived and we enjoyed a fun visit with her. There was only one other couple staying at the castle when we were there and we hit it off with them immediately. We stayed in a room in the tower, which was very comfortable and nicely decorated.. I slept good so if there was any... More

No visit to Ireland would be complete without a stay at Ross Castle, County Meath, Ireland. Manager/Hostess, Jackie, provides an exceptional experience that will not disappoint! Be sure to get Jackie's suggestions for local attractions and don't miss dinner at the castle!

A visit to Ireland wouldn't be complete without a castle stay but because of our limited budget, we didn't expect a lot from this little castle out in the countryside. We were so wrong! It was amazing! You actually feel like you're in the castle instead of an old stone structure turned into a modern hotel. Jackie was wonderful, she... More

Ross Castle was the end of our stay in Ireland, and this was a great ending. The Castle was picturesque and amenities were modern. Loved our room - first floor of the tower - beautiful shower with rain head, and the best bed/linens in all our Ireland stays. Super quiet, worth the drive to a remote Irish experience.

I was a little nervous going because of the stories of the ghosts, etc. In fact, I didn't want to go at all. When we arrived, I realized we were the only ones staying that night and staying in the top room of the tower (Slasher room). At that point I wanted to run. But then I met Jackie who... More

Ross Castle is centrally located and easy to get to and Jackie & Vanessa are true experts in the hospitality and culinary departments. We booked the top floor room in the castle/tower and what a perfect choice it was - soaring ceilings, canopied bed, big bright ensuite bathroom with terrific water pressure and views over Lough Sheelin. I won't go... More

I have stayed in Ross Castle a few times and if it's possible anywhere can get any better it is here in this wonderful historical castle, Jackie is a fantastic host making sure your stay is comfortable, plenty of logs and turf to keep the great open fire burning in the evenings, spotlessly clean and a fresh cooked breakfast dished...
