My wife and I attended a wedding in Rosapenna in late September and had a fantastic stay.
The location is superb - the hotel divides the spectacular tramore beach from downings bay. When the sun shines, there is no more beautiful place in Ireland.
The hotel itself has so much going for it. It has two fantastic links golf courses, with a really impressive club house. Ahead of us, were a group of four Americans who had heard great things about the golf and couldn't believe the quality of the course.
The food in the restaurant is full of quality, full of really fresh fish. Everything is done with an air of old world charm - silver salvers, wait staff in white shirts and dickie bows, dessert trolleys and after dinner drinks. It has the feel of gracious living from a hundred years ago.
If you can - make sure you book one of the "bayview suites" in the new wing of the hotel. We had a huge room which had a balcony looking out over downings bay. In truth, I don't think I have stayed in a nicer hotel room.
I would highly recommend the Rosapenna Hotel. It has it all and is everything a hotel should be.
