This hotel upholds all that is best in hospitality service and comfort that can be provided by an hotel. The staff many of whom have been at Rosapenna for years go out of their way to ensure first class service. The food is excellent traditional fare served in one of the nicest dining rooms in Ireland. The rooms are clean... More

This is a lovely hotel with nice staff, huge bedrooms, good food and an fab location. We booked the hotel as it was close to the golf course and offered a pool and leisure facilities. However I was very disappointed when I arrived to learn that the leisure centre has very limited opening hours. It opens for a few hours... More

I have posted over 100 reviews from all over the world and readers will know that the internet access provided by a hotel for me is an absolute key issue.

Fantastic large rooms overlooking the beautiful beach. The food is plentiful and tasty typical Irish resort fare. Bar is a bit too modern and sterile and not in keeping with the balance of the property and does not take advantage of this stunning location. Given that this is a golf resort the hotel should consider having a shuttle to the... More

This was our second vista, but will not be our last. We spent 5 days here on a golf package and played 2 rounds at Rossapenna's Sandy Hills (as good a links course as any in Ireland), a round at Ballyliffin's Glashedy Course, and one at Rossapenna’s Old Tom course. Frank Casey and all his staff really have the hospitality... More

Visited as a family at end July/early August. Busy area and the hotel seemed full. We received great personal service with exceptional attention to detail. One staff member in the bar even allowed our youngest to borrow his phone charger.... Now that is service!!!

Had a recent 2 day break in Rosapenna at this hotel with a couple who have been going there since 1981. I can see why - beautiful loughview room and fabulous food which I would describe as old-style Irish with modern twists and plenty of it.You must try the scallops, when in season, as they are delicious and all 4...
