When we arrived, we were, I admit, a bit disappointed by the curb appeal, but that disappointment quickly dissipated when we were greeted by the lovely, warm and welcoming hosts, Gerry and Sarah.
The rooms are immaculate and, while not fancy, they are comfortable and crisp and clean. Travellers expecting Ritz-style accommodation on a Motel 6 budget all seem to be disappointed by Ross House, but I must stress that the problem here lies with the travellers and NOT with Ross House.
The location is great-- a walk along Galway Bay into town or into Salt Hill is a wonderful way to start or end your day. The food was wonderful-- Sarah clearly takes great pride in presenting delicious food, prepared with love. The presentation is gorgeous and it was sweet to have our own cups and saucers with pretty Irish motifs on them. The house is lovely-- the dining room with a view of the sunroom and garden is a great place to start your day.
The best things about Ross House, however, are Sarah and Gerry. They are kind and welcoming, genuinely personable and we would happily recommend their B&B to anyone who wants a real Irish welcome, delicious food and comfy, crisp beds in a quiet neighbourhood.
Thanks so much, Sarah & Gerry-- we had a lovely time in your pleasant, comfortable, pretty home.
