First off, we were booked at "The International Hotel". When we arrived they informed us that they were oversold and had rebooked us over at The Ross. Holy cow was our room nice. I don't know if it was some sort of apology upgrade, but it was huge, floor to ceiling windows, automatic blinds, two TVs, FIREPLACE (middle of summer...

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. We had booked about 5 months ahead and during that time made so many changes to the booking, adding people in, cancelling people, changing triples to doubles etc. Not once was it a problem for...

The staff were extremely helpful throughout our stay. This was especially true when we arrived in the rain and couldn't get parking outside the hotel as there is limited parking there. (The official parking is in their sister hotel The Killarney Park hotel which is about 150m away...ok but not so good in the rain). The location is great for...

An exceptional hotel, with great service, and modern restaurant, club, and bar. Terrific service from Eileen and the staff for 8 guys going to Ireland for a special golf trip. Comfortable rooms with smart, caring, professional people in charge. I wouldn't hesitate to go back there again. Robert M.

From our first moment in the Ross to the last, we found it hard to complain. We were informed when we arrived that there were no king size beds available, but that they were putting two singles together for us. While this would normally have caused us to complain, the front staff offered us a round of free drinks in...
