Owner description: This 15th-century castle is the subject of numerous historical myths, including that of a ghost who still makes appearances at the castle.

Not much to see in the castle itself, but the sunsets from the castle over the water are beautiful. The castle itself, basked in the setting sunlight is also worth the visit.

Unlike Kilkenny Castle, which has been refurbished in Victorian style inside, this one keeps the more authentic medieval interior of such a fortress. Your guide will tell you everything you need to know.

We really got a sense of what living in a castle might have been like. This castle is not all updated in today's furniture etc. The guide told us about the life and times of the people who lived in this castle. Very, very interesting and well worth the time to visit.

I use this castle all the time for wedding photography and its stunning. The light changes all the view with it.
Love going there

The view from the Ross Castle out towards the waters was my favorite. And the higher you go in the Castle, the better the view gets. I loved this place and all the history behind it. They do have a guided tour within the castle that I think is about 4 Euros but we didn't take it and decided to just take a look around on our own. You will get some sweet shots here and if you'd like you can even take a boat out.
