We have just returned after a lovely family holiday down in West Cork where we rented out one of the holiday "cottages" at Rolfs to stay. The cottages actually consist of five attached houses hanging off the main guest house in a court yard configuration. There is a lovely garden with Palm trees and plants in the centre that all...

The staff are very welcoming and are happy to accommodate some picky kids 😀 . Today I had the chicken tandoori salad which was delicious and tomato soup...

Subject: rolfs I have had the pleasure of staying in many country houses in Ireland in recent years and regret to say that Rolf's establishment, although described as one, does not in my opinion come within that description. We stayed in one of the rooms (as the cottages are only available on a weekly basis). Our room (although we were...

My sister my dog and I stayed here on the 4th and 5th of June. We loved the tranquillity of the place and how the owners made us feel very relaxed and welcome especially as I had my dog with me. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean. To dine at Rolfs is a must. We will be back hopefully...

Had a beautiful meal here tonight, it was an experience from beginning to end. Had mussels to start which we're bursting with flavour, followed by Flambé Scallops which were melt in your mouth. Dessert was Creme Brûlée which was divine. Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough, loved every minute of it!!
