They obviously have a chef who is very talented together with loving his work. The view from the dining room is stunning ----overlooking the beach---we... More

If we had known how great this hotel would be, I would have planned a much longer visit! Great location from which to explore Donegal, or just relax on their incredible beach! Rooms are a little old, but clean and spacious, and you can't believe the view! Breakfast was also terrific.

I spent this weekend at the sandhouse and a very enjoyable weekend. If you are looking for a quiet few nights this is excellent. It is peaceful and a very friendly hotel. Staff are polite and courteous. Wifi was not good but that was not an issue for me. The bar food menu could do with work. The only food... More

Stayed 2 nights here during our trip. We had an oceanfront room and it was clean and nice. Onsite pub was nice for a nightcap although we did notice if you went behind the bar and around a wall there was another bar area must have been for the locals because the door going in was locked and it seemed...

The hotel was spotless and food was first rate, from fully served breakfast to 3 course evening meal and fairly priced bar menu which meant we didn't have to leave hotel. Room (family) had an ocean view, 2single and a double bed, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, TV, hairdryer and coffee making facilities.... More

The hotel is top class with plenty of facilities. It is right on the beach. The beach itself is amazing. The place is small and quaint with just the hotel in it. The surf bar attached to the hotel is great with wonderful staff. Hit the like button if I have helped you, thanks
