I found the reception staff , bar staff, restaurant staff and cleaning staff very friendly and helpful. The choice of food in the restaurant, for breakfast and dinner, was great and the food... More

Stayed for one night in July and we were just sorry that we couldn't stay longer! The hotel oozes character and charm yet our room was very comfortable with a lovely bathroom and a fantastic view over the beach. Breakfast was served to our table and we loved that it wasn't the buffet style favoured by so many hotels. We... More

Spent 2 nights at the Sandhouse hotel, beautiful and spacious room with a breathtaking view of Rossnowlagh beach. Breakfast and Dinner were very good, great service and good food. The Manager even drove us to the nearby Smugglers Creek restaurant for our dinner reservation there. Look forward to our next visit to this very friendly and quality hotel.

A good powerful shower. We had dinner in the hotel on Saturday night. The restaurant is superb. Beautifully set with... More

I stayed last Saturday night in the Sandhouse Hotel with my 21 year old daughter and had a lovely relaxing time. We got a room that overlooked the beach which was an added treat. Weather was great so got a few brisk walks on the beach. The room was very spacious clean and comfortable. We ate in the hotel for... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here twice - once for a wedding and once in the build up to a wedding. On both occasions the staff were very helpful and the rooms spotless. The view from the beach facing rooms at this hotel are spectacular! On the day of the wedding the hotel staff bent over backwards for the bride,... More

The hotel was great. We ate at the restaurant and the seafood was fantastic. Our rooms were overlooking the beach, the rooms was very spacious and very clean. The hotel had an old time charm and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

We have eaten at the Sandhouse Hotel a few times over the summer months and each time the food has been better than the previous, last Saturday night was the best yet, they have just changed the menu and all 5 of us had the venison. With a nice bottle of wine, excellent staff and good service, what more could... More
