We were a party of 19 visiting Rosapenna to play Old Tom Morris. We received a great welcome, including 2doz balls for prizes on the day. The course was a true test of links golf and the watching the dolphins in the bay was a great bonus. The view from the club house of the 18th was stunning. We ate... More

Had to have been recently renovated for it had a very clean and modern feel. Golf courses are in great shape, all 3 are links type courses....what you would expect... More

We called into this hotel on Sunday 10th July for a few drinks and some food as we have done almost every weekend. Everything was always fine and there were never any problems. However, today while standing at the bar there was a young man who had served us many times before with a black waistcoat and an English accent.... More

Had dinner with family and friends on a Saturday evening in a restaurant that has an old style charm. The dining room has the most magnificent views over the hills and harbour. We had crab, salmon and croquettes for starters and Lamb lobster for mains all served with a mountain of vegetables. The meal was delicious, with excellent service. Teas... More

Here for the golf so we just booked a package not knowing anything about the place except from the website. My review of the two golf courses is under that title. Our arrival was low key as we checked in quickly then dashed over to the course for a late afternoon round before dinner. We made it back for our... More

For the last 20 years, I've made annually multiple trips to Ireland from United States for golf. The Rosapenna Hotel and golf resort ranks right up there and exceeds the best places I have ever stayed. Their attention to even the smallest detail was phenomenal. The staff was welcoming, friendly and went out of their way to make sure anything... More

This hotel is big. It has very spacious rooms and shower. We had a twin room with a small kitchenette. After playing golf you can have an great dinner (nog always cheap) in the dining room and after that close the day with a pint in the bar. You can walk (200 - 300 meters) to the golfcourse.

I have been coming to Downings for over 30 years and was back recently to pay golf again. I played with friends on Saturday on the Sandy Hills course. It was in great condition and some of the recent changes have improved it and made it more playable. Thankfully it wasn't to windy and we had a great game. On... More
