Our stay at Ross house was great! They were very kind, friendly, and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and she had coffee and tea for us. When we arrived we were greeted with coffee and tea as well as freshly baked cookies. The breakfast was also excellent. We really enjoyed our stay there!

We very much enjoyed our brief visit at the Ross House! It's an older place, very homey. Oriel and her daughter, Gemma, were both very kind and helpful in offering tips and suggestions on places to visit. Also, the area around the Ross House is so serene. I don't think you could possibly stay there without relaxing! This is a great place to stay.

Wonderful stay! Highly recommended . Warm, comfortable, quiet, well stocked for our stay. Very quaint rural setting, very soothing for the soul. Oriel and Nicholas were charming hosts, very knowledgeable about the area with several great suggestions for us as weary travelers in their country. I'd definitely return,. Perhaps for a longer stay.

A perfect stay! We spent 5 days here last july, and we were very sad when leaving. Oriel and Nicholas are very kind and welcoming. All the family is lovely and gave us a lot of useful suggestions about places to visit / pubs etc. Everything was easier, thanks to their precious advices. The farm is lovely, peaceful and surronded by a beautiful garden. It is very clean. The rooms (2 double rooms) where we stayed are beautiful and comfortable, the bathrooms are modern and spacious, equipped with soaps, warm towels and bathrobes,even cottonwool! Breakfast is delicious, we tried everything and everytime it was a wonderful discover. Undoubtely the best we had during our 30days-long trip aorund Ireland. My children frequently mention the beautiful days we spent there. So, I highly recommend to stay at Ross House, and enjoy this lovely place

We got to this house right around 6 in the evening. It was kind of far out of the way from our planned track, but that was my own fault for not choosing a closer one. The house was nice, but older and the room and bathroom seemed... tired? The tv didn't work and no amount of troubleshooting that my [technologically savvy] husband and self would turn it on. It wasn't a huge deal though because we didn't need to watch tv anyway. The bathroom was fine, but had a tub with a folding wall to keep the shower spray in (maybe this is common in Ireland but I've never seen it before). Breakfast the next morning was good and we had nice conversation with a couple from Australia and a woman from Canada. The hosts were very welcoming.
