Ranelagh was built in 1875 for Joshua Gill who wished to accommodate his large family of 10 children. Ranelagh was built in a stately manner, which is unrivalled in Dubbo, even by today's standards, to reflect Gills status as a prosperous local merchant. Gill owned the first general store in Dubbo, The Overland Store.

Conveniently located 2 kms from cbd and Dubbos main tourist attractions including Western Plains Zoo, The Old Dubbo Jail, Dubbos 27 hole championship golf course and lots more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely oasis We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ranelagh. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and the staff lovely.The pool and the full sized snooker table were well used. Our only problem was that we didn't stay long enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely home This is a special place to stay. Beautiful garden and house. We only stayed one night but really loved it there as did our small dog. The house is spacious and has several rooms for booking. There were two other people there the night we stayed. It would be a wonderful place to stay for family reunion or similar. Recommend the house.
