Breakfast was delish with healthy and hearty catered for. Walking distance to village and lovely early morning walks to blow away cobwebs and work up breakfast appetite. I will def be back! Thanks guys... More

We had a fantastic stay at Rolfs! The staff was always friendly and smiling and the owners made us feel like we were a part of their family. The food was fantastic, especially the home made bread. We stayed in the three star rooms which were small but comfortable. The kids had a great time with the donkeys and running... More

We stayed in Rolfs for a night. It was a nice bright room and a good breakfast menu. We ate dinner in the restaurant. We both had fish and were a bit disappointed as felt the fish was under seasoned. However the medley of desserts (the chocolate tart and mousse) was delicious.

The food was fantastic!! Don't leave without some bread and make sure you have the cheese! The hosts were fantastic and the food was some of the best we had in Ireland. My only critique would be that the rooms are a wee bit small and I could hear my neighbors. Other than that, beautiful and clean accommodations.

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
