Ross Castle Stately Home in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland


century towerhouse and is a typical example of the stronghold of an Irish chieftain in the Middle Ages

Ross Castle is the ancestral home of the O'Donoghue clan. It is located on the edge of Lough Leane, in Killarney National Park, County Kerry, Ireland. 

This Castle may be considered a typical example of the stronghold of an Irish Chieftain during the Middle Ages. The date of its foundation is uncertain but it was probably built in the late 15th century by one of the O'Donoghue Ross chieftains. It is surrounded by a fortified bawn, its curtain walls defended by circular flanking towers, two of which remain. Much of the bawn was removed by the time the Barrack building was added on the south side of the castle sometime in the middle of the 18th century. The castle contains 16th and 17th century furniture. 

Access for people with disabilities to the ground floor only by prior arrangement. 

Please note that this site is a very busy site and visitors may experience a delay during the summer months.
