This was the first time at the Ross for all of us. I am the travel agent as well as one of the guests in our party. I found the service to be uniformly outstanding. Well done to all concerned, but in particular, Keira is a treasure. She is personable without being overly familiar. Very helpful, bright and just an...

What a stylish boutique hotel, to rival any we've seen in North America. Killarney itself was sort of a predictable tourist town, but staying here made the trip worth it. Bar prices for a martini a bit outrageous, but the room price was very reasonable, so I suppose it balances out. Complimentary parking close by. Would recommend!

The Ross was a remarkable place to stay. Great location, excellent service, beautiful and comfortable rooms. My mother and I traveled all over Ireland and this was by far our favorite place we stayed. We both would not hesitate to stay here again!

This hotel is just stunning, the decor and design is out of this world. Very edgy and relaxing. I spent two nights here for my sister's hen weekend, they don't encourage the usual hen party with all the 'dress up' etc which suited us down to the ground for our meal in their restaurant.
