Visited Ross Castle and took the tour; glad we did. The guide was first rate and as we moved up the five levels of the tower, we learned so much about life in a tower castle; and not all of it glamorous. Each floor was decorated as it might have been in the 1400's - as each floor had a purpose. From servants quarters to guard quarters, kitchen, parlour, bedroom, and main dining and parlour. Even featured a rudimentary toilet. Amenities were limited and life in the castle would not have been easy. Situated on the lake the castle provides a good history of life in Ireland during this time. Provided a good overview of Irish Chieftans at the time and how they influenced the early history of Ireland.
