My husband and I (and our 3 month old dachshund puppy) stayed in Rathsallagh for 2 nights at the end of July, and we loved every minute of it!!
The staff, without exception, were very friendly and welcoming, and really seemed to enjoy meeting with and chatting to the guests. Both Joe and Kay (the owners) mingled with guests in the dining room in the evenings, stopping at every table and making sure everyone felt very much at home.
The bedrooms are lovely. We were given the "Kilbarry" room, which is in the newer block at the back of the house. We had a massive bedroom and a separate sitting room, with plenty of wardrobe space (and hangers). The bathroom was also huge, with a separate bath and wet room, and was filled with lovely toiletries and cosy waffle bathrobes.
Breakfast and dinner are served in the main house (there are bedrooms here as well, but I think they rooms in the new wing are bigger). We had dinner on both nights and were pleased that the menu was completely different on both nights, so there was no problem with deciding what to eat. The meal was gorgeous, and included little extras like pre-appetisers and petit-fours. Breakfast was an equally impressive spread, and was plenty to set you up for the day.
The trip was for our 5th wedding anniversary, and we needed somewhere that was pet-friendly, as our new puppy was too young to go to kennels, so would have to come with us. Rathsallagh has a specially converted stable, and the dog was perfectly happy there for the 2 nights. The staff were great with him, and did everything to make sure he was comfortable.
We’ll definitely go back to Rathsallagh, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. It’s worth keeping an eye out for special offers on the website. We booked the "Midsummer Madness" package, which consisted of 2 nights B&B, dinner on one night, a round of golf or massage each and cocktails on both nights, which only cost €199 per person.
