The Castle is beautifully decorated, the rooms are spotless and full of character. We stayed in one of the tower rooms, it was really lovely, with en suite bathroom and a gorgeous four poster bed! There was a group of us, we had a beautiful meal and sat around a roaring fire chatting into the wee hours. Would totally recommend... More

The HISTORY talk about the HISTORY - commissioned by King Henry VIII for 11 Pounds. The tower room were two... More

First, the people who manage the castle are fantastic! The food was great, the room was very clean and the grounds were charming. My husband asked to spend a night in a castle and this is the place I picked. It is a bonafide rustic medieval castle- stone walls and lots of animal mounts. The experience of staying here was...

We had a fantastic night here last weekend, a group of my friends went down on Saturday night and had a beautiful dinner. I stayed in the top tower room (Sabina's) room which was amazing as you can see from the picture. You can see Lough Sheelin from the bathroom window! Excellent stay in a castle steeped in character and... More

My wife and I stayed here around Halloween. We stayed in the Upper Tower room which was amazing. Vanessa and Jackie were great hosts and the castle is a very special place to stay. It has a very interesting history and is the most authentic castle hotel I have seen in Ireland. Highly recommend for those looking for something different.

We wanted to stay in a castle one night of our Ireland trip and this was the perfect place. We wanted a place that looked like a castle both on the outside and inside and this delivered. The rooms had stone walls and castle details. The surrounding area was also beautiful. Jackie was a gracious host and she provided a... More

I, my two daughters, and four grandchildren ages 10-15, stayed two nights at Ross Castle and it was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. We booked the upper tower room and two first floor rooms and were very pleased with the accommodations. The entire castle was beautifully furnished with antiques and both the private and public areas were comfortable... More

Warm and welcoming, Jackie was a lovely hostess and served us a spot of tea upon arrival. We stayed in the tower rooms and the accommodations were stellar, well maintained and furnishings were quite nice. I loved reading in front of the fireplace, the fire burning,nice and cozy I should have booked for a longer visit. Kimberly D.

We arrived late at night to the Ross Castle. We met Jackie our host who quickly pointed us in the right direction for a nice meal. We were disappointed we did not make dinner. That was our fault. The castle is fascinating. Especially if you enjoy history. Our room was on the third floor and accessed via a small spiral... More

Excellent experience! We stayed in the top tower room. Great views, very spacious room and bathroom. As the walls are concrete, the room was a little damp, but we expected that having previously stayed in a similar place - did not deter our satisfaction of the room at all. Entire place was beautiful. Manager Jackie offered tea upon our arrival... More
