Fabulous boutique hotel in the heart of Killarney. Decadent decor and beautiful bedrooms. All round luxury. The restaurant is well worth a visit. We even had tea and sandwiches made for us on our return from the nightclub! I would highly recommend a short break at The Ross.

We visited The Lane Bar as the waiter in our hotel recommend it for cocktails. The prices were a little naughty and I was left waiting 10 mins at the bar for mine.. Great location and very trendy. The cocktail menu was very large and Mojitos seemed to be a speciality. I ordered a Blackberry Mojito ... I wasn't disappointed,...

We held a small gathering here for close family and friends. The finger food supplied was beautiful and well above the standard of what is normally given in local bars. The manager, Eleanor, ensured the service we received was perfect just like their amazing cocktails!!

We stayed in The Ross for just one night (something the receptionist good-humouredly admonished us for!) and wish it could have been longer! The room was lovely with big comfortable beds and a massive bathroom. We ate in the bar and tried some of their lovely cocktails. The hotel is quite central so I would say at weekends it could...

Recently stayed for my partners 40th birthday- there were 15 of us that stayed at the hotel and 4 that came for the dinner only.
