The castle has been completely restored and gives you a good idea how they lived. The tour guide was very informative. I visits here every time I go to Killarney.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

The tour is excellent. Guides are very knowledgeable and pleasant. Castle is very scenic and has many hiking trails. Catch the boat to Innsfallen and enjoy the lakes and views of mountains and lakes. Hiking trails back to Killarney town center and all the park lands around, beautiful.

“Excellent Restoration of a Beautiful Castle”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The guided tour of Ross Castle was excellent and it is well worth the extra cost. We learned so much about the history of the castle and how it was restored to its former glory. Don't miss this wonderful tower house castle.

“Excellent Guided Tour”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

The Ross Castle guided tour was a great introduction to the architecture of medieval castles. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the defensive features incorporated into the structure of the castle. She also explained the function of various pieces of furniture within the castle.
