This hotel has been able to retain the feel of a traditional Irish hotel with none of the questional attributes of an international chain. It has that great Irish cozy feel which is missing in many new hotels and backed up by a spectaular view, large clean rooms and attentive well trained staff.
The food is straight forward, if unspectacular and is well cooked and well presented.

This is an ideal place to relax, play a round of golf, walk on the sandy beach, take the Atlantic Drive or just read a book and enjoy the views of County Donegal.

My husband and I stayed in a bay view suite which has a balcony overlooking the beach. What a breath taking view! Room itself was large and luxurious with a lovely bathroom. Food in the dining room was great; lots of choice in fresh sea food expertly cooked, service also excellent throughout the hotel. Swimming pool which has a sauna and steam room is fine but I think in need of updating. We don't play golf but it is a beautiful area of Donegal to explore with lovely walks, scenic drives and a great pub in Downings which is within walking distance of the hotel along the beach and up some steps. We had a great break here and can't wait to return in the near future.

Room Tip: Balcony suite definitely worth the extra cost if you are looking for something special

My time at the rosapenna hotel was quite good. It was a pit posh and not really family orientated. The rooms were fabulous and had beautiful views of the beach! There was limited availability of food especially for younger children

Travelled here on a golf weekend with a number of friends. We stayed in the hotel and played both golf courses. The package included 2 rounds of golf, a meal and b&b for 125 euro which seemed good value to me. The golf courses are tough especially sandy hills but well maintained and a pleasure to play.
The meal was absolutely fabulous with no extra cost for a steak which was excellently cooked to order. The bar is a little quiet in the hotel but we visited the town where we found an excellent lively bar with a great band.
There is also a pool, sauna/steamroom which were quiet when i visited and very relaxing after a few hours trekking around after a little white ball.
All in all a nice hotel in a quiet location which treats its guests well. Not somewhere I would go for a long stay but definitely worth visiting. One thing to note is how remote it felt - when we got as far as Letterkenny there was still another 45 minutes drive to get to the hotel.

Room Tip: There are some great rooms with beach views - see if you can get one - mine had a view of the beach...

I'm the bridegroom from the aforementioned wedding at the Rosapenna. I don't think I need add much to my guests review but cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff, owners and service from the hotel were all superb. What a wonderful first impression of Donegal and indeed, Ireland, for all our German friends. I would highly recommend a Bayview Suite if you decide to stay here - the rooms (bathrooms to die for) and views stunning. This is a Golf Hotel but not just for golfers! There's lots to see in the surrounding area and you won't find nicer beaches ...
