Had a lovely stay in the 2 bedroom self catering cottage, plenty of room for our family of 6.. Kids aged 10 months (brought our own travel cot) to 8 years, lovely garden, very safe for kids to play.. 7 min walk to beautiful village.. Dined in Rolf's restaurant which was delightful!

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

Had a beautiful meal here tonight, it was an experience from beginning to end. Had mussels to start which we're bursting with flavour, followed by Flambé Scallops which were melt in your mouth. Dessert was Creme Brûlée which was divine. Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough, loved every minute of it!!

We, my wife and young rescue Westie, stayed here back in July 2013 and were so exceptionally received and catered for it left an imprint such that we continued to return and have stayed with this graceful family many times since. We have enjoyed the flavours and culinary skills of Johannes and his youthful Mom Gertrude and the super efficiency... More

Beautifully restored country house and gardens. Peaceful, welcoming and comfortable with great food - all only a short walk down a quite country lane to the pretty village. Excellent value and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed there about 3 years ago. Beautiful stone buildings with lots of little courtyards & beautiful grounds. Peaceful & quiet with beautiful, most comfortable rooms with the very best linens. The dinner was superb and breakfast just as good, you have to see the spread to believe it. If you cannot stay then at least go for a meal.... More

Great place to relax, rooms are quaint and cosy.The food at Rolfs is excellent and service is spot on. You can tell that the owner is passiontate about good/local ingredients. Baltimore is a lovely place to escape, have a few beers and relax. Really enjoyed my stay here and can't wait to go back.

Rolfs is a great little spot! Just out of town, nestled up the back of a quiet little country road. Food and wine was fabulous, as was the service. Rooms were nice and clean. Beautiful white bed linen. All in all a great stay. Would visit again in a heartbeat! No where but Rolfs in Baltimore!
