My twentysomething daughters and I stayed for three days in August and we all felt that clearly Rolfs Country House was our favorite place to stay on our two week trip. The Haffner family are fabulous hosts and the restaurant on the grounds prepares top notch meals. We loved the grounds and our simply furnished rooms and were so reluctant... More

What a wonderful place, truly a home away from home. My friend and her six-year old and myself with my 4-year old had a great weekend in West Cork, staying in one of the two-bedroom cottages at Rolf's. Immaculately clean, spacious rooms, comfy beds, a kitchen equipped with everything you'd need for self-catering and a cozy livingroom with an open... More

Rolfs Country House is by far THE place to stay in West Cork . I have travelled the entire West Cork coast line in recent years and stayed in various B&Bs and Hotels none of which would touch this splendid establishment. Set on rise overlooking the must see village of Baltimore it is quite simply breath taking This is a... More

Our simple, cosy little room overlooked a vista that stretched across a garden and over rolling fields to Roaringwater Bay. We awoke to the sound of birds singing and the scent of fresh breezes off the sea. This alone provided the relaxing juxtaposition we were seeking after our urban explorations of Dublin and Cork. Rolf's is up and away from... More

I first stayed at Rolfs over 10 years ago and have wanted to return ever since. It was very special to go back with my husband and my son. The self-catering cottage where we stayed was well appointed and many small details were attended to. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens, drinks at the wine bar and the wonderful food at... More

It was a perfect lunch on a gorgeous day perched atop the charming village of Baltimore. We have been coming to lunch at Rolf's for years and it just keeps getting better. We sat on the garden terrace and were warmly greeted by Frederika, one of the proprietors, who also waited on us most attentively. The lunch special plum tomato... More

Short walk uphill from the town itself but lovely and quiet. Property a little dated but staff lovely. They couldnt do enough for us. We didnt eat there but it seemed to be very busy for food in the evening. Lovely grounds for chilling out. Breakfast good. Three wild geese worth going to see - if only for them.

Good staff, good accommodation, good food, good location, good price. I can't say much else. I could not find a thing to complain about if I tried. I know from looking at previous reviews years there has been some bad press, but they are from a long time ago, big changes have taken place for the better and I would... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Bed and breakfast booked in advance but we had dinner there both evenings also, prompted by a fabulous cooked to order breakfast. Both meals were above average, cooked well with fresh local produce but the Lamb was particularly gorgeous. The evening meals were well priced and good value. The owners were lovely... More

Recently stayed in Rolf's... what a find. Relaxed comfortable atmosphere, clean accommodation (the self cater houses are fab), the restaurant has great food and wine menu. Breakfast was delish with healthy and hearty catered for. Walking distance to village and lovely early morning walks to blow away cobwebs and work up breakfast appetite. I will def be back! Thanks guys... More
