The Hotel is excellent, the people are first rate, the location is to die for and golfers will welcome the comforts after battling Sandy Hills. The view from the room's veranda was outstanding, see below. The room itself was very nicely appointed, and the bath was elegant. I only ate the Irish cooked breakfast, and it was fine. I'm a...

Two nights stay at Rosapenna hotel, weather good and lovely hotel with excellent staff, courteous and efficient. Used swimming pool and sauna which were clean and refreshing. Room was spacious with balcony view over bay. Food good. Played 18 holes at Old Tom Morris course, very challenging but when coming to the tenth tee box two adults and two kids... More

Nice hotel, definitely suited for golfers and older couples. Not one for young families. Hotel website and comparison sites said it was full. Called in on the off chance as we were in the area and the place was half empty! Got a room straight away. Room was clean, tidy and with modern amenities. Shower was very good. View over... More

We were the first group to tee off of the Sands Course. The layout was fair,the winds and rain were normal for Ireland (20-30 mph with intermittent showers) and we had all we needed for an enjoyable round. We had purchased course books for $5 Euro's each. They were ok yet the drawings did not really show bunkers in a... More

I have to agree with all that was said below in reference to the Interprovincial Golf Championships stay. We were there also and with a team of 8 players and 2 Officials it is rare that you get complete satisfaction from everybody with every aspect of this beautifully located and presented hotel. The rooms, the staff the welcome and in... More

This is a return visit and it is a hidden gem - we just love it. The links golf is a challenge but coastal views make up for it! The food and service were both superb. We stayed four nights and the menu changed every evening with local produce used in all dishes. A vegetarian option was also available. We... More

The hotel is well located, a 2 minute walk from the beach & 5 minutes from the village. Reception staff very unhelpful and I felt I was putting them out & definitely would NOT stay again due to this reason. You expect more considering it's €180 a night for two people.

Stayed in this very grand hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Of course the amazing Donegal coastline and fantastic golf courses added to the experience. Hotel was well run and the staff were brilliant.

Went here with friends for a golf break. From the outside didn't expect much from the hotel however when inside it was absolutely 1st class. The food was excellent and the staff very efficient and friendly. The rooms were large and comfortable with decent TV and good wifi. I would definitely visit again. Golf courses were both good but loved... More
