New Year's Day lunch

Fantastic location overlooking Rosnowlagh Beach, very quaint interior, cozy, excellent food and wine. Enjoyed the tiger prawns, chowder and fish and chips, all very good, generous helpings. Friendly staff.

We stayed here for one night and we had to come on here and comment how well we were looked after. We got the room to the front with a sea view and a balcony which is well worth it. The owners go above and beyond to make you welcome and well cared for. Will be back for sure! The... More

Hosts were wonderful. Room clean. Breakfast great. View was superb. We would give all 5+ if the internet worked in room. Had to go downstairs to use. After long day of travel and great food I just wanted to chill in room but had go to lobby downstairs to use. Don't hesitate to book this great hotel.

We had a first class day up at the Gaslight Rossnowlagh. Check it out folks. Great place for food, if ever up that direction. Stunning views and the beach is at your door step. Staff and service in general is out of this world. Its like you have never left your own home. I will definitely be back and would... More

This restaurant has amazing sea views - what a brilliant place to end the day with a nice meal and watching the sunset over Donegal Bay. The food is first class and staff could not be more helpful

Had 2 great dinners here. Some of the best steaks around and everything we tried was fabulous. The view cannot get any better, right on the Atlantic cost. The owners were lovely and very accomodating. Our second night there we asked them to join us and then the "craic" started. Some great storytelling!!

What a gem! I was visiting the area for a surfing weekend with my friends last weekend (September 26th to the 28th) when we were pointed in the direction of the Gaslight. After a long 6+ hour drive to get to Rossnowlagh, it was such a treat to be served here. We had a surprise birthday cake for one of... More

We decided to pop in on a Sunday afternoon and were not disappointed! A friendly welcome and we were seated straight away, the helpful staff got a high chair for baby almost immediately. The menu had many tempting dishes. He had the Chowder for starter which was delicious and fresh, we asked for a small bit of mashed potato and... More
