The Sandhouse Hotel is beautifully positioned on the Rossnowlagh beach. We had a beach view room which had magnificent unspoilt views of the Atlantic. The room was beautifully decorated and had a very comfortable bed. We slept with the window open so we could just hear the waves of the Atlantic whilst going to sleep☺. The breakfast room is also...

This place really has something special. We stayed on Easter Sunday as we were celebrating a family wedding anniversary with a meal here. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough for us, most of whom seemed to be people from the area who take serious pride in their workplace and are only too happy to help.... More

Staying in another part of Donegal we were driving about and came across this hotel and decided to have dinner here as the views were spectacular. The restaurant is on the first floor and has marvellous views over the atlantic and the surfers. Very comfortable chairs, white linen table wear and thick carpet gives this restaurant a very luxurious feel.... More

We were looking for a dog friendly hotel in donegal. Lucky for us The Sandhouse had were happy for us to bring our dog, and we're glad they did. What a great find. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We had a couple of treatments in the spa, which was a great way to start the break.... More

This hotel is magical, I wish I could give it more than just an excellent rating. As my title suggests, we booked another weekend here as we were checking out and we can't wait to return. Our stay was over 2 cold, wet, windy and quiet nights so any hotel that can make such a positive impact through such dull... More
