We stayed here on for two nights on 20th and 21st July for our wedding anniversary. We got upgraded to a deluxe room which was fantastic with a great view of the harbour and beach. Both golf courses, ( The Old Tom Morris and Sandy Hills Links ) are immaculate and the views incredible. The Sandy Hills Links is more... More

Spent two nights at Rosapenna last week to conclude our western Ireland golf trip. Rosapenna was indeed a fitting conclusion with a comfortable hotel dining room overlooking Sheephaven Bay. Food & service both excelled, with a highly-trained staff providing friendly & rapid table service. Recommend the separate bar for both pre & post dinner cocktails, where the bartenders make special... More

Have written reviews about this place before but just back from another short break there! Can't recommend it enough! I have travelled the world but rate this as my favourite place anywhere. Spoke to quite a few first timers who said they were so impressed with the whole set up that they would definitely be back - as we will,... More

The food is superb, we actually all went for a second meal there before we left. The weather was beautiful & the scenery stunning. Would definitively Rosapenna as a place to... More

Tucked away on the northwest coast of Donegal, the Rosapenna offers beautiful views and fantastic service. The scenery reminded me of the Northern California coast. We had the same table in the dining room for our entire stay and the food offerings were outstanding. We do not golf but there were plenty of activities in and around the resort to... More

If you are a golfer this is an exceptional venue and the availability of two top class golf courses makes the cost very, very reasonable if you avail of the facilities. We've played most of the top links in Ireland and Scotland and the Sandy Hills course is right up there with the best of them all. The rough is... More

The hotel location is situated between Tra Beg and Tra Mor both wonderful for walking and swimming, The hotel is pet friendly so we brought out two little dogs who were allowed in the room, but not anywhere else in the hotel. The food we had from room service was of excellent quality and piping hot when served. We did... More

The Rosapenna Hotel is a pleasant place in which to spend a long week-end. It is not outstanding in any particular facet but it is relaxing and comfortable. The building itself is unremarkable and a bit dour but it has a superb location right on Downings Beach. Our room was spacious and well equipped with a notably efficient shower unit.... More

We were in a group of 9 staying for two nights and were looked after from start to finish, including keeping the kitchen open for us on the first night as we were delayed coming from our previous location. Food was excellent in the restaurant, hotel rooms were very generous and service was impeccable. Cant recommend it enough.
