I've had the pleasure of staying and playing at Rosapenna on at least a half dozen golf trips to Ireland. The hotel is wonderful and the golf is superb. The Caseys run a great establishment and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. I will visit Rosapenna twice this coming August, the first visit with a group of 20 guys...

I spent two nights in this wonderful hotel and played both courses, Old Tom Morris and Sandy Hills. We got great weather, sun with some wind, but it was fantastic. Every member of staff we met was exceptionally friendly and professional. The food and service in the restaurant is some of the best I have had.

I stayed at Rosapenna with a group of people playing bridge and have previously been on a golf break. On both occasions the service has been impeccable - nothing has been too much trouble for the staff. The food is of the highest quality - the only problem is making a choice! Breakfasts are made to order and the range...

Donegal is recovering because of peace in the North and because of its natural beauty which gets more striking the nearer you get to the coast. Rosapenna has a long history of hospitality that is family run and they have invested well in a modern resort. This was our third visit in the last 10 years an won't be our...

We arrived at the club house at 11.30 a.m. A warm welcome from Frank and his colleagues and beautiful scones and coffee for all. Nothing too much trouble. A lovely round of golf on a course in great condition. Towels were even provided for those wishing to shower. Onto the hotel for a fabulous two course meal. Service and quality...

Was at Rosapenna over the weekend for a wedding. What an experience. Staff were so helpful, and the venue is just breathtaking. Set on the beach, everywhere you look you see sky, dunes, water....really incredible. Helps that we saw it with bright sunshine. The rooms were incredible - ours had two double beds, LOADS of space and are very tastefully...

Rosapenna is a very special place. The friendliness of the staff, the location and the stunning and superbly maintained golf courses more than compensate for any shortcomings when compared to more urbane hotels. Let yourself be enchanted. I go back for the third time this year!
