Best stay in Ireland, from the warm greeting by the concierge, who showed us to our room herself ( first time here in Ireland), to the staff in the bar and restaurant and the wonderful food that was served. ..Oh..did I mention the views from the rooms......

This is a brilliant place for a relaxing holiday,suitable for every sort of age, with or without families.
The location is terrific. Donegal is a must for those who haven't been there. The hotel is located on an extensive sandy beach and their boast that you can always find a quiet place is quite accurate. The hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Rooms set aside for families with pets is a good example. We loved our room with its huge bay window seat overlooking the sea and impressive period furniture. And what's more, the pub served us magnificent coffee!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel over the weekend and loved the old feel of the place. The view of the beach was stunning (I would definitely recommend requesting a sea view room when booking). The Glasshouse restaurant served fantastic food although with the main attraction of the room being the view of the beach, it would have been great if the windows had been cleaned! Great for families/ couples or friends, the beach is breathtaking.

Room Tip: Would recommend asking for a sea view room.

A lovely quaint hotel with great character right on Rossnowlagh beach is an ideal location to relax, surf, explore Donegal .......the worlds your oyster. I spent a night with my family in a family room (2 interconnected rooms). This worked out really well. The service was pleasant, efficient and we had a great time. Breakfast was top class and the table service was a novelty these days. No buffet...full service and very quick. If I was to have a little niggle I'd say the wifi could be better and a couple of extra sockets in the rooms. But these are small niggles. We will definitely be back. Thanks Sandhouse Hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view....you will not be dissappointed!

The Sandhouse was the highlight of our stay in Ireland. We were there midweek, and although Rossnowlagh was busy the hotel was not crowded.

The hotel is located on the beach. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern, but this hotel is about more than just the rooms. The food we enjoyed here was the best in 2 weeks of travelling (with some stiff competition). The lamb rump was tender and flavourful, the hake delicious, and the portion sizes were perfect for indulging but not over doing things. The view over the bay from the evening dining room was spectacular with the sun setting and the tide coming in.

Service was friendly and efficient and we enjoyed the lovely beach and the Surfers Bar.

The hotel is situated right on a beautiful beach in easy driving distance to Donegal. We had very large room with a beautiful view. Good food, service and facilities. A good place to stay either when touring or also with a family.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the beach. It can be a little noisy in the daytime, but at night it's...
