We decided last minute to have an overnight stay in Bundoran, but our usual hotel was booked out and the only availability was in Rossnowlagh and this proved to be a blessing in disguise .... I think we have found a new favourite! We were met by our congenial host on arrival and shown to our room. We saw plates... More

Called into the Gaslight on my way back home on Sunday night. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and despite it being packed and with reserved tables the host found us a table fairly quickly. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The view was breathtaking as the sun was just setting at the... More

We went to the Gaslight for dinner on Sunday to celebrate Mother's Day, my husband, myself, our daughter in law and our 10 month old grandson. As always we were very well looked after, and as it was a beautiful day, we really enjoyed the view, which is second to none. Anthony and Pauline are so welcoming, and their staff... More

Nice warm welcome, lovely feel in bar/restaurant, stunning views totally amazing, so relaxing, food was nice but not wow it lacked flavour, think if they simplified it made it less fussy and focused on simple hearty food with flavour it would be a wow restaurant. However I would still go back

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.
