Really nice setting on the beach and booked a deluxe sea view room, which also was also very nice. However, we had a horrible first night due to the noise. Located near the bar, there was very loud music in the bar until 2 am and then once that was finished, we were left with the hotel's beer garden which... More

Lovely quaint hotel. Very clean and staff very nice. The menu is extensive, but if you are coeliac there are only 2 choices of starters and 3 main courses. Chef did not appear to be willing to make a gluten free sauce. You have to accept that you can only have a,b or c... Be careful when you book it... More

Best stay in Ireland, from the warm greeting by the concierge, who showed us to our room herself ( first time here in Ireland), to the staff in the bar and restaurant and the wonderful food that was served. ..Oh..did I mention the views from the rooms......

This is a brilliant place for a relaxing holiday,suitable for every sort of age, with or without families. The location is terrific. Donegal is a must for those who haven't been there. The hotel is located on an extensive sandy beach and their boast that you can always find a quiet place is quite accurate. The hotel has a lovely... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel over the weekend and loved the old feel of the place. The view of the beach was stunning (I would definitely recommend requesting a sea view room when booking). The Glasshouse restaurant served fantastic food although with the main attraction of the room being the view of the beach, it would have... More

A lovely quaint hotel with great character right on Rossnowlagh beach is an ideal location to relax, surf, explore Donegal .......the worlds your oyster. I spent a night with my family in a family room (2 interconnected rooms). This worked out really well. The service was pleasant, efficient and we had a great time. Breakfast was top class and the...

The Sandhouse was the highlight of our stay in Ireland. We were there midweek, and although Rossnowlagh was busy the hotel was not crowded. The hotel is located on the beach. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern, but this hotel is about more than just the rooms. The food we enjoyed here was the best in 2 weeks of... More

The hotel is situated right on a beautiful beach in easy driving distance to Donegal. We had very large room with a beautiful view. Good food, service and facilities. A good place to stay either when touring or also with a family.

Great hotel. Fantastic staff, food and location. Current owner has been there for the last couple of years and doing a great job. Updating bits and pieces as and when. There were hundreds of people using hotel last Saturday during the morning and afternoon but by 6.00pm everything had been cleaned polished and was spotless. Booked again for next year.
