Ross Castle Demesne provides refined elegance for exceptional 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 acquired the estate and have spent several decades restoring the 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.
