This hotel has a superb location facing out onto a wide sandy surfing beach about 10 miles South of Donegal Town. There is free car parking outside the hotel. This is a holiday area and there are a lot of caravans and holiday homes around. The hotel is the best place to stay and probably the focal point of the... More

I had been really looking forward to a two night stay at what I thought would be quite a luxurious hotel! How wrong was I? We were graciously greeted and welcomed on arrival and taken to our rooms on the 2nd floor. We had wonderful sea views. However the furniture was ancient, mismatched and heavily marked with water stains. The... More

The wife and I stayed here three days in early August. Loved the hotel. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was charming and had a great view of the ocean. Beds were comfortable and well maintained. We loved everything about this hotel. Breakfast was more than we could eat and actually had to ask to reduce the... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant midweek three night break at the end of August. The bed was extremely comfortable, our room had a stunning sea view, facilities were spotless including the windows of which there are numerous. Some feat for a hotel overlooking a sandy beach. Food, both breakfast and evening meal, was consistently beautifully cooked and nicely presented. Would... More

We spent hours just looking out at the sea as the sun set and again in the morning before we left. We had dinner in the restaurant, and arrived at... More

Conducive to rest and reflection, great location by the beach and friendly staff. Secluded setting but not boring. Meals at breakfast were delicious with a fine selection on the menu to suit all tastes. I will come back.

My extended family had a weekend reunion in Rossnowlagh. The Sandhouse Hotel was brilliant! Lovely dinner, excellent staff, terrific rooms with super sea views. And a lovely fire to sit round! Can't praise you enough - thank you.

We stayed for three nights in a beautiful spacious superior sea-view room to join a large family gathering. The event was a great success due in a large part to the friendly, efficient service by all staff at the hotel. Lots of space for relaxing, excellent breakfast and dinner menus and comfortable seating throughout. The highlight was a special dinner... More

We have just returned home from our relaxing break at the Sandhouse Hotel. From when we arrived we felt at home, the lovely friendly and efficient staff welcomed us and showed us to our room. When we opened our bedroom door we were blown away. The view that met us as we entered our room can not be explained in... More
