Just outside the coastal village of Baltimore, high on a hill is nestled Rolf's Country House. Charming and quiet, it offers a variety of room types from single to family self-catering cottages. The gardens are lovely to take a quiet walk, but the pièce de résistance is the dining. Our dinner was one of the best we had during our... More

Stayed in self-catering house at Rolf's. Very well-appointed, with comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and nice, rustic patio area. Breakfast was excellent with high-quality ingredients and Friederike and Johannes were charming hosts. It's about a ten minute walk down the hill to the village. Coming back may be more of a challenge if you've had a few. WiFi wasn't available... More

Unsure as to whether we'd booked into a three star hotel or a rather up market B&B, by the end of our weekend visit we didn't care because the friendly service and excellent food had ticked all our boxes. This very successful family run business built on quality served all our needs and we recommend it without reservation.

I stayed as a large group in baltimore for a kayaking meet. They stayed up late as we all had long drives and were very helpful and friendly despite the late hour. The cottages are terraced and modern with everything that you would need to cater for yourself. The washing machine and tumble drier in each house came in very... More

Had my Hen party in Baltimore a few weeks ago and stayed in Rolfs. Everyone has been talking about it since. I wanted a relaxed Hen party where all the girls could get to know each other. No better place to spend it but here. Food and service was fantastic. The rooms were simple but very clean. Couldn't fault it.... More

Hidden gem in Baltimore. Gardens are lovely but the service is what makes this place special. Rooms are ok everything you could need. Food is to die for. Can't wait to come back. Loved this place so much. Breakfast was such a lovely treat. Wow!!

Weather was great and we had an outside patio and use of the lawn beside the family home. Great base from which to explore West Cork. Cape Clear definitely worth... More

We have just returned after a lovely family holiday down in West Cork where we rented out one of the holiday "cottages" at Rolfs to stay. The cottages actually consist of five attached houses hanging off the main guest house in a court yard configuration. There is a lovely garden with Palm trees and plants in the centre that all...

we stayed here for two nights and Rolf's is in a beautiful location and is lovely looking house. however I did find the bedroom to be quite small for a country house. Our room was very clean but the floor was not hoovered upon our arrival and just looked unfinished. the owner did hoover it straight away when we said... More
