Ross Castle

Historical landmark
8 km away
Ross Castle was constructed in the late 1400s by one of the O'Donoghue Ross Gaelic Chieftains. Built on a rocky outcrop on Ross Island by the shore of Lough Leane, this imposing castle offers a typical example of an Irish keep and has proved to be a highly effective defensive stronghold throughout the centuries. In fact, it was one of the last castles to surrender to Cromwellian forces in the 17th century. An old Irish prophecy said that Ross Castle would never be taken "until a ship should swim upon the lake". Many years after the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland, the Castle was for the first time occupied by the Browne family. For his loyalty to King James II, Sir Valentine Browne was given the title, 1st Viscount Kenmare - predecessor to Thomas 4th Viscount Kenmare - the acknowledged founder of Killarney Town (1754) and the father of Irish Tourism. The castle subsequently served as an Army Barracks until it was ultimately vacated in 1825. Although "deteriorating", the famous Killarney landmark spent the next 150 years under various owners. In 1970, it came into State ownership and has since been skilfully restored by the Office of Public Works (OPW) and refurnished in the style of the 17th century. It stands on the shores of Killarney’s largest lake and looks out at the legendary monastery on Innisfallen island where Brian Boru, High King of Ireland, is said to have studied. Ross Castle is now open to the public by guided tour only – and offers a Killarney experience that is not to be missed.

Meet and chat with the farmers and their wives as they go about their daily work in the houses, on the land, and with the animals. Visitors can also enjoy a complimentary trip aboard the Muckross Vintage Coach which circulates the farms.

Innisfallen Island

Historical landmark
1 km away
Innisfallen island can be seen in the distance from Ross Castle out in the heart of Lough Leane, which translates as the “Lake of Learning”. A monastery was founded on Innisfallen in the 7th century and it became a seat of learning; hence Lough Leane. It is said that King Brian Boru studied there along with many from the noble houses of Europe, as Ireland was seen during the so called “Dark Ages” as a beacon of learning and education. On the island are the remains of the extensive 12th century Augustinian priory and a small 11th -12th century Romanesque church. The annals of Innisfallen, a major source of early Irish history and now stored in the Bodleian Library in Oxford were written there. There is also a small herd of deer on the island. Boat trips to the island can be arranged from the hotel's pier.
