From the moment we checked in we were made feel really special. The Receptionist personally showed us to our room which was a lovely personal touch. We had a Sea view and what a view - the sea view was truly magnificent = we were so close to the beach. In the foyer there was a log fire burning all... More

We went here for a family Sunday lunch and it was excellent. For a €25 menu there was a great choice of quality food including plenty of seafood. Everything looked and tasted fresh and well-prepared, the service was excellent, kids were well looked after and the panoramic view of the crashing waves of Rossnowlagh from the first floor dining room...

A big thank you to all the lovely staff who made our stay at the hotel on Saturday night so special. We gasped when we saw our interconnecting rooms which were perfect for 3 children and 2 adults and were just thrilled with the views of the Atlantic beach. Having three kids, we were a little sceptical that this hotel... More

The hotel is situated directly on the beach which is extensive, clean and beautiful. Those who love the surf will delight in the opportunity to surf, windsurf and much more. The staff are welcoming and attentive and... More

Our family took cheap flight to Knock, hired Eurocar and direct road to the Sandhouse Hotel. One hour later we arrived at the hotel. Cold January morning improved with open fire in welcoming reception, beautiful room for three plus baby, overlooking the sea and fabulous beach. Spotted surfers, families and dog walkers enjoying themselves. Ate in the bar area and... More

My partner treated me to a spa treatment at the Sandhouse Hotel Spa and I would say it was one of the best experiences I have had. We were booked in for a 1hr full body Swedish massage and were able to use the jacuzzi and sauna room beforehand and then again after our treatment. This was in a small... More
