Ross Castle

This 5-bedroom stone castle, built in 1536, is now run as a B&B. But beware: Guests often wake at night hearing voices and doors banging and shutting on their own. Paranormal believers say the spirit of an English lord’s daughter haunts the castle. So does the ghost of Myles “The Slasher” O’Reilly; the Irish folk hero spent his last night here before dying in battle, in 1644.
