Running out of options on a Saturday afternoon in Donegal and lucked upon the Sandhouse which had one room left. A Victorian masterpiece right on the ocean (although we passed on the ocean view due to the disco), this is a great hotel. The restaurant was excellent both in menu choice, staff and price. Breakfast the next morning was also...

This hotel is right on Rossnowlagh beach. An area of unspoilt beauty. Afternoon tea is delicious and the scones are the best I've had. Recommend a visit. Great beach for surfing and views are fantastic.

My friends and I stayed at the Sandhouse and enjoyed every minute! This jewel is well worth the trip: beautiful views, genteel, relaxing spacious rooms, and fine dining. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and make you feel at home. There is also a spa that is very good as well. I wish we had stayed longer!

Living less than an hour away from Rossnowlagh we are quite familiar with it as a stunning beach location perfect for a bracing walk. This was our first time to stay in the Sandhouse hotel despite our many visits to the beach over the years. The older lady on reception was very pleasant on our arrival (early but this was...

Looking out onto Donegal Bay,sandy beaches for miles. Well maintained hotel. Nothing too much trouble for staff. Superb restaurant with great views. Accommodation reasonable priced. Personal supervision by the proprietor. Good parking. If you are a surfer, it's paradise. Spa attached to hotel,prices reasonable. Watch nat nav instructions to find hotel, can be misleading.
