An intimate little country retreat, Ross Lake House, offers tremendous hospitality, country house charm and gracious living, that guests return to time and time again.
Hidden away in the wilderness of Connemara, Ross Lake Hotel is a charming Georgian manor house set within 6 acres of rolling lawns, colourful flowers and rambling woods at the head of a winding driveway beside a flowing stream.
A haven of peace and tranquillity, Ross Lake exudes classic country house charm. Its owners Elaine and Henry Reid offer warmth of hospitality that Ireland is famous for and has people returning to them year after year, while their friendly border-collie housedog Millie adds a touch of character of her own.
Ross Lake is delightfully set with period furnishing in its elegant drawing room, cosy Library cum bar and intimate dining room with broad bay windows overlooking the manicured lawns of the gardens.
Each of the well appointed bedrooms of Ross Lake House are light and airy and individually decorated with tasteful furnishings, sumptuous beds, some with four poster and half tester beds and are carefully set out with all the comforts necessary for a relaxed and enjoyable stay.
Dining at Ross Lake is an intimate and unpretentious affair, with traditional Irish Country Cooking and beautifully prepared food, using the best of local produce from the hills, streams, lakes and coasts of Connemara.
Ross Lake is 3km from the town of Oughterard on the shores of Lough Corrib one of the best fly-fishing waters in Europe for salmon and brown trout and boats and boatmen can be arranged with prior notice. Also in Oughterard is an 18-hole parkland golf course, while the bustling town of Galway, 22km away, is a shopper's paradise of boutiques and stores and the main cultural centre for the region.
