Stayed for two nights at the Sandhouse in July. We were lucky to get beautiful weather which really helped! Paid extra for a sea view room, definetely worth it! The hotel is fantastic, classic style bedrooms with beautiful antiques, a glass window in the lift so you can see the sea, restaurant overlooking the sea aswell, really the location couldn't be better. The food was outstanding, we had one dinner and two breakfasts there. White linen tablecloths, fantastic service, and the food was fresh, served promtply and tasted beautiful.not your usual fry-up for breakfast, there is a selection of fish, beautiful fresh pastries, as well as tradiional cooked breakfast and loads more. All served to you which is a welcome change from usual buffet style breakfast. Went to see a local band in the surfers bar which is attached to the hotel, great nights fun, all the locals were very friendly. Only downside was the bathrooms in the hotel rooms are quite dated, shower wasn't up to much, but this didn't really bother us too much. Neither my partner nor myself wanted to leave the hotel, we had a truly fabulous time and will definetely be back!

This hotel occupies a prominent position on Rossnowlagh bay and its grounds extend to the sand. We had booked for one night in advance but after our initial experience we booked for a second night. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful and although they at first said we would have to change rooms for the second night, after some reorganisation, we were able to stay in the same sea-view room for both nights. The room was spacious with easy chairs on a raised area in the window bay. There were expansive views of the coast from the room. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were served in the restaurant with a sea view. The dinner menu was very good and the food was well-presented. Breakfast was also served at your table with a wide range of choices. All the staff in the hotel were pleasant and helpful. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

We recently stayed at the Sandhouse, our second visit in two years. It is a fantastic property, operated by the loveliest people. There is very little to do in Rossnowlagh except enjoy the long beach, perfect for walking and swimming. My sons took surf lessons from the school next door, and I actually got a tan in the unseasonably warm sun. The rooms are clean, well-appointed, and functional. The food is fantastic. If I could devise a reason to go back, I'd already be on the plane.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a seaside room. The surf will lull you to sleep.

We stayed here for a family break with our 3 young children. The family room was clean and very spacious with a beautiful sea view. The staff were attentive and helpful despite the hotel being fully booked that weekend. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty. I will definitely be definitely be back.
