Stayed here recently for 2 nights. Hotel is a comfortable resort hotel. The Sandy Hills course is excellent, the Tom Morris is quite good. I enjoyed both but if I returned I would play Sandy Hills twice. The food in the hotel restaurant was pretty average. We had a great meal at the Olde Glen Bar, south of Carrigart, a... More

Stayed to play the golf courses, was really pleasantly surprised by the hotel and amenities- this is an old school type of resort, a smaller version of White Sulphur Springs, French Lick, Kohlers, or Greenbrier- Excellent accomodations, country estate type of furnishings, seperate large reading lounge, comfortable bar, very nice dining room- fixed menu, but all was excellent- very attentive...

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

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
