Charming and Quiet with Wonderful Food
Ross Lake House is a charming guest house in the countryside north of the bustling Galway. We enjoyed our stay, particularly the evening cocktails in the small room off the parlor and a really, really delicious dinner. Our suite was very spacious, which is great for a family traveling together. The furnishings are a bit dated and there is not much to do without driving, however, we found it to be an excellent value and enjoyed talking with the very friendly and gracious proprietors and strolling the grounds. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path with charm and character, this is a great choice.
