“Lovely well run hotel”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Eight of us stayed in the hotel for two nights to play golf, the food was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful. The golf courses were challenging but the weather was sadly terrible. The setting was stunning and if the weather had been nice it would have been a memorable experience.

Three wet and weary golfers decided to try the Vardon Restuarant in the Rosapenna Hotel and Golf Resort and were certainly not disappointed. The food was perfectly matched in both of excellent quality and plentiful quantity. Even though the restuarant was full the service was attentive, warm and friendly. The wine selection lacked little for options and for the most part was reasonably priced. Enjoyable evening when it all comes together like this.

A party of eight golfers go each September for three nights and as we keep going back to the same venue, need I say any more! The rooms are large , comfortable and warm with excellent large bathrooms.. Bar and dining room service is extremely professional and friendly and the cuisine is out of this world. Whilst not cheap, it is worth every penny to get the standards which we can rely on each year. Congratulations to the owner and staff.

Room Tip: All rooms excellent but you could ask for an ocean view room.

We stayed on a weekend golf break here in September the hotels is good. The room had all the mod cons including a small fridge and we large enough for two people. We stayed hnalf board the breakfast was okay but dinner was better four courses with good variety. There is a pool sauna etc and a drying room which is important as the weather can be bad as we found out on the Saturday. It has a nice bar and prices we reasonable just over 4 euros for a pint and a bit less for a short. All the staff were polite and helpful and it is next door to the golfcourse. All inall a good spot for a trip away.

I have organised a golf trip for 20 plus people in the first week of June for 8 years. The staff are helpful and able to accommodate our late arrivals at dinner from the course without a problem.
The food is plentiful, the new wing superb accommodation.
The ultimate commendation is that everybody re books as we leave.
Roll on June 2014

Room Tip: The new block is the place to be-looking out over the sea
