Constructed in 1539 by The “Ferocious” O’Flahertys, one of the most distinguished tribes of Galway, the property was later acquired by the Martin Family who built the present manor house upon the former castle’s foundation. After two fires and much neglect, the McLaughlin family acquired the property in the 1980s and have spent the past several decades restoring the estate to its present splendor.
Guests are invited to enjoy all of the amenities: indoor heated swimming pool, Billiards room, tennis court, lake with boat/canoe/fishing gear, gardens, and trailed public forest at the estate’s periphery. Ross is just 9 miles from Galway City and less then an hours drive from The Aran Islands, Cliffs of Mohar, salmon/trout fishing, golf courses and horseback riding.
