Ross Castle Lodge
Ranked #29 of 143 Killarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2013

We had the most marvellous three night stay at Ross Castle Lodge. Our room was really large and very comfortable, with great pillows and a large bathroom. Breakfasts were excellent with a wide choice including beautiful fresh fruit and the best porridge. Rosaleen was absolutely charming, and gave us suggestions and advice on what we could do each day. Nothing was a problem for her.

The B&B is about 1 kilometre out of the centre on a quiet and very pleasant road. It has beautiful gardens and is directly opposite an entrance to the Killarney National Park. You can walk through the park to the centre or along the street in about twenty minutes. It's also very near Ross Castle where you can take a picnic on a warm evening and sit on the grass by the lake. When we saw the chaos of buses and traffic in the centre we realised how fortunate we were to be staying on Ross Road.

This was the most relaxing and overall the best of all our accommodation during our trip to Ireland.

Rosaleen was extremely friendly and helpful, she provided us with a great breakfast in the morning and a useful guides to things to do and see around Killarney. Gluten-free bread and cereal was provided without problems. There were racing-days next to Ross Castle Lodge but the city centre was easily reached by foot within 15 minutes.
The rooms were fabulous and spacious and had good quality beds.

Stayed here September 2012 and again this July 2013 again a truly lovely experience. Rooms food, location and care is superb. So relaxing. It is located very near Ross Castle which makes for a lovely stroll before breakfast. There is a lovely walk just across the road that will take you into Killarney. It is set in a lovely quiet area which makes for a great nights sleep.

My wife and I stayed at Ross Castle Lodge during the second week in June. Beautiful, comfortably sized room, very gracious and welcoming hosts and a great location from which to explore the Killarney area. Located on a quiet street. We would drive up to the end of the street (.7 mile) in the evenings, park our car (on-street, free parking) and then have a 3-minute walk into the heart of Killarney. Cannot wait to return.

Our stay at Ross Castle Lodge was perfect. Denis and Rosaleen were so gracious and made us feel like we were staying with good friends. Rosaleen's attention to detail was impeccable; she thought of everything to make us comfortable. She and Denis worked together to make our visit to Killarney unforgettable. We plan to return some day and continue to explore southern Ireland!

Denis & Rosaleen went above and beyond. They are incredibly charming people. The house is even cuter than the pictures. We stayed in the 3-person bedroom, which was roomy, clean and quaint. We received clean towels every day and lovely gluten-free food for my mother. The breakfast was delicious! When the rain decided to descend on us our last day, Rosaleen even offered to drive us to Muckross House, rather than send us off in the rain. We loved our stay and would recommend it to Anyone. The house is a rather long walk to the town center, so a car would be recommended -a 20-30 minute walk.

From the moment we arrived we were made feel very welcome with warm scones and tea in the sunshine. Rosaleen was a fantastic host and had plenty of advice for what to do in the beautiful surrounding area. She was always on hand if we had any questions but we also felt that we had our own space and were really able to relax. The room was immaculate with a very very comfy humongous bed and we loved all the tiny details. The bathroom was spotless and the shower was fantastic. We felt absolutely spoiled. Breakfast each morning was lovely. Denis kindly gave us a lift to the bus station on our last day. I would recommend Ross Castle Lodge to anyone I know and hope I'll get a chance to stay there again in the future.
