The ancestral home of the O Donoghue clan this beautiful castle was built in 1450ad on the shores of Lough Leane just outside Killarney on the Kenmare road. It was held by the O’Donoghues until the Desmond rebellion of 1580’s when ownership changed to the MacCarty Mor clan. MacCarty Mor leased the castle and the lands to Sir Valentine Browne ancestor of the Earls of Kenmare. Ross castle was the last stronghold in Munster to hold out against Oliver Cromwells forces. In 1652 it was taken by general Ludlow but was later give back to the Browne family again. Some time after 1688 they were exiiled because of their adherence to James II of England. The castle then became a military barracks and remained so until the early 19th century. It is open to the public today
