A stop on our Jaunting Car Drive with Dennis Ferris (who is does an awesome job of touring Killlarney National Park), we liked strolling the castle grounds. It is great stop for some photos!

We like our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the castle and Irish history. You climbed up four floors of the castle. It was owned by a wealthy landowner and in those old days his extended clan lived on his land. It was sparse inside but comfortable for this period of history.

This is over-rated and not good value for money. Ross Castle is nothing special. Nothing much to see and even half an hour is too long there.

Scenery is beautiful and castle is in wonderful condition! The landscape is amazing. Castle was closed but the bike ride there was still worth it!
