We traveled with another couple who recommended this hotel. It was the highlight of our trip. The food and service was top rate, and the rooms clean with super comfortable beds. It is peaceful and quiet. Dinner was truly one of the best meals in my travels. If you're looking for some r&r in a 19th century manor house, this...

This was the last stop for 2 nights on our honeymoon trip before we drive back to Dublin to fly back home. First off, from the get go we got a weird vibe from Henry as he greeted us. I felt like we were being stereotyped as young party people looking to trash the place from some of the comments...

We booked this spot based on the 4 star rating and excellent reviews and were somewhat disappointed. Property is quite dated, rooms were very basic and service was something out of Monty Python. The property itself was charming,tucked down a winding country lane with fields of sheep and idyllic vistas. But the house was surrounded by a car park which...

Magnificent house in idyllic setting and perfect base for exploring Connemara. Beautiful spacious ground floor room with living area and doors opening to garden. Excellent dinner and wine selection and hearty breakfast. Owners Elaine and Henry were ever attentive, caring and friendly. Highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at Ross Lake House for one night in October 2013 and it was a really lovely getaway. The House is about 20 minutes by car from Galway city, a few miles on from the village of Maigh Cuilinn. The tree-lined roadway up to the house was beautiful, and there is a stunning river on the...

We stayed at the Ross Lake House for two nights in September, our visit was very enjoyable and we highly recommend it. The House dates from the mid 1800's (with renovations and additions since then) and some of that character remains; high ceilings, large comfortable rooms, a separate living room and bar, and attractive grounds. The House is set back...

My partner and I spent three nights in this wonderful hotel and can't fault a single thing about our stay. Our room was beautiful and very spacious with lovely views over the gardens.

We found this hotel on line whilst touring Eire and booked for two nights. On arriving at the hotel it felt right and as soon as we went into reception we knew we had made a good choice.
