Absolutely faultless welcome and stay with Nicholas and Oriel, room and house were spotless and even though we had to leave early we were still left breakfast (at 5am!). Thanks again and hopefully see you next year...

We were fortunate to stay 2 nights here with Nicholas & Ouriel. A true Irish farmhouse set in the most serene, quiet, & peaceful place we've ever been. The hosts were so welcoming and kind. I will always cherish sitting in the parlor late at night with the peat burning stove & the company of Nicholas & Ouriel. The breakfasts were very nice. The highlight may have been their sweet granddaughter whose job was to offer toast & who was so excited about the chickens laying eggs. We felt like family & there may be no higher compliment or experience. Thank you so much and all our best wishes. Bruce & Rita

If we could give 11 stars we would. We spent 9 days travelling Ireland and often felt like we were cogs in the tourism machine. Ross house was our first BnB and was an exception. We were warmly welcomed into Nicolas and Oriel’s home. We were offered tea, coffee and delicious cake and engaged in genuine conversation. Gemma went the extra mile enquiring about ancestral routes. Giving us recommendations to visit and dine, and showing us the new hens. We visited the nearby cemetery where our ancestors are likely buried. It was all very memorable. We only spent one night, but could have happily spent several!

I don't think I can say enough wonderful things about Ross House, Oriel and Nicholas. This was our first stop upon arriving in Ireland and we were exhausted, to say the least. After a missed flight in the states, losing 24 hours of our trip due to said missed flight, and jumping in the rent a car to drive over 2 hours (also our first time driving on the left side) to Sligo, we had been living in the same clothes for a while and lacking sleep. We arrived around 5pm and Oriel quickly showed us to our room (which was marvelous), sliced a few pieces of cake she had made for us and let us be to freshen and take a nap. We woke up maybe 4 hours later and wandered into the kitchen to see if anyone was still up. Of course, Oriel and Nicholas (who I later learned is quite the night owl) were gathered around their kitchen table with another friend of theirs all drinking tea and eating homemade scones and cake. They welcomed us in and for 3 hours we sat, talked and laughed at all the stories that were told. That is Ireland. A perfect example of Irish hospitality and friendliness. For our short stay, we were a part of their family. The next morning, we had another marvelous time sitting in the dining room, meeting other guests and devouring every last bite of breakfast prepared by Oriel. Talk about a filling and delicious meal, I wasn't hungry for HOURS afterward. We also had the pleasure of meeting their wonderful daughter, Gemma and her beautiful daughter, as well. We were preparing to leave, as we had an hour drive to Westport to ride, and noticed that our low tire pressure light had come on in our car. Nicholas did not hesitate in throwing on his boots and rain jacket to help us fill it up with his air compressor in the rain! We were so grateful. This house is what you picture when coming to Ireland. We would open up our window and hear nothing but the sound of birds and the occasional "moo" of nearby cows. I cannot think of any better hosts to spend our first night with!!

A wonderful place to stay. We were very late arriving but a phone call to Gemma the daughter ensured us not to worry. Oriel and Nicholas made us very welcome and we sat and chatted with them by the peat fire. Oriel is a wonderful cook and breakfast was first class. The bedroom was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the venue to all travellers. Thank You.
