Ross Castle: Galway

Synonymous with luxury group accommodation, Ross Castle Demesne provides refined elegance for rare occasions or a truly memorable vacation in Galway. The distinctive ambience of the Castle's grand rooms and self-catering cottages, accented with bespoke antique furnishings, will captivate you and up to 40 guests. The historic 120-acre lakefront estate is entirely immersed in a spectacular setting of mountains, lake, and parklands.

Developed in 1539 by The "Ferocious" O'Flaherty, one of the most distinguished tribes of Galway, the property was later acquired by the Martin Family who built the present manor house upon the former castle's foundation. After two fires and much neglect, the McLaughlin family purchased the property and invested several decades restoring this beautiful estate to its present splendour.

Guests are invited to enjoy all of the amenities: indoor heated swimming pool, Billiards room, tennis court, lake with boat/canoe/fishing gear, gardens, and trailed public forest at the estate's periphery. Ross is just a 20-minute drive from Galway City (Cathedral) and less than an hours drive of The Aran Islands, Cliffs of Mohar, salmon/trout fishing, golf courses and horseback riding.

Amazing scenery, beautiful lodging, very friendly host!
I planned a weekend at Ross Castle for my sister's hen party and everyone was so impressed with the place. We had 17 staying for two nights in The Park and it was perfect. Lovely big dining table in the kitchen and multiple sitting rooms which were perfect for hanging out for activities such as a dance class which we arranged. Marshall was such a lovely host and was so helpful. It's amazing what she has done with the place. I'm looking forward to going back and will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Great location for large groups
We stayed here as part of an extended family group for a weekend. It was great, the kids loved it, with access to snooker room, table tennis, swimming pool and boats on the lake. Great big dining room and lounge and lovely grounds.

Time stands still in paradise
We recently went to Galway Ireland because we have friends there and when ever we go over there a pilgrimage to a most sacred place to us is the sereneness the tranquil beauty and the un Spoilt ambience of a real traditional Irish Castle. We hired it three years ago for our wedding and we have been back every year since. It caters for families big families , groups , parties , most anything and like the great novel and film this well run holiday hideaway is truly Far From The Madding Crowd. The food they put on is locally sourced and the amount of rooms and kitchens and bathrooms to choose from makes you feel totally Spoilt in a incredible medieval way and when you are eating in the vaults with extravagant lit candelabras you feel you are dinning where kings dined. I could go on for ever about this non commercial dream hideaway but you need to see it for yourselves.

Quiet Manor in the Country
Ross Castle is the new home of my heart. Exploring Ireland was beautiful; nothing like the cities of Southern California. I never knew such beauty in the spirit of the land until being able to stay at Ross Castle for four days. Walking the quiet grounds at dusk was a true treat. The spry owners were extremely kind, lovely to speak with, and helpful. Having a full kitchen to cook meals was also lovely, as it saved some change in my pocket from eating out every night. I could not recommend this place enough. Come, stay. Explore. Find peace.

Ross Castle is, of course old, and is maintained nicely. Linens are fresh and clean, bathrooms are sparkling, fluffy towels are provided. Bring your own toiletries as they are not provided like at a hotel. Kitchenettes are in each wing, and are a great way to cook your own meals and save money. The grounds are huge, the landscaping is meticulously kept up, and the people who work there are incredibly sweet.
