What an absolute pleasure it was to stay and eat here over the past week. The Owner's were always smiling and welcoming and busy. The 2 bedroom house was a home from home with every conceivable modern utilities. A Comfortable, Quiet Retreat with stunning shrubs and flowers in the garden and yet only a few minutes walk from Baltimore Village.... More

We just recently returned from our first family holiday with two small children (4 and 15months). We stayed in one of the beautiful houses in the courtyard of Rolfs Country House. Firstly the hosts were very accommodating around our desire to stay for 4 nights only (although it being peak season 7 nights minimum booking). When we arrived we were... More

Last minute decision to go to West Cork. We were lucky to get a cancellation for one of the cottages for the weekend. The cottages are spacious and comfortable. Two large bedrooms, would accommodate 5 easily. Nice and clean, tea, coffee, bedding and towels provided. Well equipped kitchen. Easy walking distance from the village. Friendly staff. Only flaw- the curtains... More

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!!
