“lovely castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We didn't go inside as there was to many people around, but this is understandable as it was bank holiday, but the grounds of the castle were good too. It is located on the lake and it make it very special and beautiful.

“Great castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

it is a must to visit, with guided tour you learn a lot of the castle, and see inside the rooms which have been very well restored. Very good young lady guide who was very knowledgeable and entertaining, got narrow steps but this was how castles was built so to be expected.

the tour guide did an excellent job. we learned so much. the castle had a lot of intersting furniture and facts to learn about.
it didn't take long either. It was kind of a bummer you couldn't take pictures.

“Best Casttle in Ireland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

We visited several casttles in Ireland, but Ross is the only one that truly gives you a sense of life at the time the casttle was functioning. The way the tour is conducted, the furnishing, the knowledge of the tour guide, were all great values to our visit. If you only see one casttle it should be Ross

“Excellent tour in this castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is a must-see in Killarney. The guided tour is excellent, and don't neglect the shop where you can purchase wool scarves, caps and many other handmade items.
