What an idea location for a stay in Ireland! The food is amazing, the grounds and room beautiful, the staff polite and helpful!
We were greeted by Henry, the owner, who showed us to our room, and explained the times for breakfast. The butler, Joe, dresses in a bow tie and jacket in the evenings, and a tie and jacket for breakfast. Joe was also very helpful with directions for our trip the following day to catch the ferry to the Aran Islands. I can't say enough good things about this charming 1815 building and staff!

We stayed here and just loved the beautiful setting ! Henry and Elaine were wonderful hosts and the house itself has so much history. We really enjoyed the full Irish breakfast the next morning in the very nice dining room. All the staff were very friendly !

Big and clean rooms. The owners gave us a warm welcome and were helpful during our stay in the hotel. We also had diner in the hotel on our last night, which was a very nice experience. Great food! The area around the hotel is also very beautiful.

I just read the review saying this feels like staying at a rich friend's mansion. We agree completely. Hotel was beautiful, grounds amazing, dinner was beyond compare and Joe's award winning Irish coffee was a highlight of our two weeks in Ireland. Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Our beautiful room was directly up the stairs from the check-in desk.

We happened upon Ross Lake House after our previous hotel cancelled on us with three days notice (a water pipe emergency, they said). I'm sure that hotel is lovely too, but boy did we luck out and come out on top when Ross Lake House Hotel had one room left! I can't say enough about this wonderful country house. My fiance and I stayed this past weekend for a night and loved it so much that we tried to cancel our other hotel in Dublin and extend out trip (sadly, it was too late to cancel). If the exterior of the building isn't enough to make you fall in love nearly instantly, the instant warm greeting from Henry when you enter will really do it. We arrived just before 8, and Henry and Joe got us set up in our room, and then down to the most wonderful dinner in their dining room. Everything was perfect- from Joe's service, to the duck I had, and even down to the brown soda bread that came before our main courses. We slept in and missed breakfast the next morning, but took the time to go for a stroll around the gorgeous property, before getting on the road to Kylemore Abbey. It was exactly what I had in mind for our first trip to Ireland- like something out of a fairytale. Do yourself a favor and stay here- we can't wait to come back for more than a night!
