Hotels is comfortable, has very friendly efficient staff. The food is excellent. Both golf course are demanding and in good condition. A great venue for a golf break. Nothing too much trouble for staff. Take plenty of balls to replace the ones you will lose on both courses.

Spent two nights and enjoyed restaurant, service and room. The service at reception and the restaurant was excellent. The restaurant overlooks the bay and the food is not only top notch but quite reasonably priced. Classic service at restaurant with plenty of servers, hot plates and a reasonable selection on the menu. Coffee and tea in the lounge afterwards is... More

My wife and I have been staying at Rosapenna on golfing trips for the past 25 years. This year we decided to bring the family along, taking three rooms in total. A very enjoyable stay. Meals up to their usual exceptionally high standard and service superb.

When the sun shines, there is no more beautiful place in Ireland. The hotel itself has so much going for it. It has two fantastic links golf courses,... More

My husband and I often play on the golf courses, they are in exceptional condition and the views you encounter along the way are completely majestic. While... More

If you are looking for a little piece of heaven, golfer or not, we have discovered a real jewel in the Rosapenna Hotel in Downings, On arrival staff were friendly, welcoming and the sheer size of the lounge which over looks the bay was breath taking (not to mention the homemade scones). The room was comfortable and spacious. We ate... More

Great staff, clean rooms, nicely situated but they have that old problem that pervades through all the hotels in the South Of Ireland, namely, hard mattresses. The mattress on the bed was like a springboard and extremely painful if you suffer from back problems. This isn't the first Hotel in the South of Ireland I've stayed in with this problem,... More
