Seventeen members of our family from the US gathered at lovely Ross Castle for Christmas this year. The rooms are so beautiful and the hosts so gracious. The location is about 20 minutes outside of Galway City - far enough to feel very remote and close enough to get in and around easily. We went on day trips to the Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, the Aran Islands and others almost every day and enjoyed pints of Guinness at the pub at the end of the road - walking distance for the youthful. Elizabeth was very responsive to numerous emails getting us sorted out in rooms by family groups, ordering our Christmas turkey, and generally helping with finding things we needed. We had a delightful stay.
