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!!

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've been going to Rolf's for many years now before kids where we had wonderful dinners and drinks at night. And now with two young children where we are now experiencing superlunches. The staff are very welcoming and are happy to accommodate some picky kids 😀 . Today I had the chicken tandoori salad which was delicious and tomato soup... More

Subject: rolfs I have had the pleasure of staying in many country houses in Ireland in recent years and regret to say that Rolf's establishment, although described as one, does not in my opinion come within that description. We stayed in one of the rooms (as the cottages are only available on a weekly basis). Our room (although we were... More

Travelled from Clonakilty for 1 night & in a word Rolf's is "perfect". This is what the hospitality trade in Ireland should aspire2. Simple food, nice acc, friendly service all done extremely well while staying authentic to its identity!!

My sister my dog and I stayed here on the 4th and 5th of June. We loved the tranquillity of the place and how the owners made us feel very relaxed and welcome especially as I had my dog with me. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean. To dine at Rolfs is a must. We will be back hopefully... More
