“Really Special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

I spent last weekend in Rolfs celebrating my Mum and Dad's 40th Wedding Anniversary with a group of extended family. I was so impressed, the location was beautiful, the food was excellent and the team in Rolfs really made our celebration really special. The restaurant has a lovely relaxed feeling, and the accomodation, while basic, is very comfortable.
A wonderful breakfast the following morning in glorious sunshine really was the icing on the cake.
Thanks to the team in Rolfs for hosting a memorable weekend.

My husband and I were in Baltimore on a cycling vacation and the tour operator arranged for our group to eat at Rolf's one evening. It was one of the best meals we had while visiting Ireland. I had fish which was fresh and delicious. My husband had steak which he also enjoyed. The desserts were also delicious and there was a good wine list. Excellent choice!

I was lucky to get accomodation at short notice in Rolf's last weekend.I enjoyed everything about it-reasonable rates,peaceful setting,comfortable bed.tasty generous breakfasts,and excellent friendly service.We ate in the restaurant on sat after a magical day walking and swimming on Sherkin Island.The main courses of Slaney Lamb and Quails served with apricots and cognac cream were first class ! Compliments to everyone who made a weekend break something really special.

We stayed in beautiful Baltimore in early June and one of the highlights was discovering Rolfs.We ate there on 4 occasions and enjoyed great food and outstanding customer service on each occasion The menu is well balanced and one of those which when you pick up you could order anything from.The Slaney lamb with mint hummus was sublime and one of the best dishes we have had in a long time. Frederike is the perfect maitre'd combining absolute competence with great charm and wit.Sitting outside in the evening sun sipping wine and devouring fresh strawberries was the perfect end to a fantastic week.

I cannot recommend Rolfs highly enough. We have just spent an amazing weekend here. Johannes, Freidreike and Stephen are amazing hosts, great atmosphere in the bar, super wine list, the food was amazing and we wanted for nothing. Rooms were clean and comfortable in a quiet rural setting. Am booking my next trip as we speak !

I stayed at Rolfs for 3 nights last week. Traveling alone can be a challenge but not here! Friederike, Johannas and Stephen were amazing! I had great conversations, fantastic food, and amazing wine. My room was clean and overlooked the back gardens which were lovely, the shower had great water pressure and parking was plentiful. I can't say enough great things about this gem of a place! If you find yourself in Baltimore, make sure to either stay at Rolfs or go in for lunch, dinner or a glass of wine.

Great place for a family event. Choice of self catering and B&B accommodation works well for family celebration and great restaurant with BIG choices on the menu.Dining room was fully booked. Staff very friendly and helpful at all times and did a great job finding our lost property after we left.! The self catering cottage was very comfortable, well furnished and the underfloor heating was great..Lovely country walks and nearby Baltimore is a great place to have a leisurely pint overlooking the harbour. Thank you to all at Rolfs. We had a ball !! Audrey and Dan and the party !
