It was a perfect lunch on a gorgeous day perched atop the charming village of Baltimore. We have been coming to lunch at Rolf's for years and it just keeps getting better. We sat on the garden terrace and were warmly greeted by Frederika, one of the proprietors, who also waited on us most attentively. The lunch special plum tomato...

Short walk uphill from the town itself but lovely and quiet. Property a little dated but staff lovely. They couldnt do enough for us. We didnt eat there but it seemed to be very busy for food in the evening. Lovely grounds for chilling out. Breakfast good. Three wild geese worth going to see - if only for them.

Good staff, good accommodation, good food, good location, good price. I can't say much else. I could not find a thing to complain about if I tried. I know from looking at previous reviews years there has been some bad press, but they are from a long time ago, big changes have taken place for the better and I would...

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Bed and breakfast booked in advance but we had dinner there both evenings also, prompted by a fabulous cooked to order breakfast.

Breakfast was delish with healthy and hearty catered for. Walking distance to village and lovely early morning walks to blow away cobwebs and work up breakfast appetite. I will def be back! Thanks guys...

We had a fantastic stay at Rolfs! The staff was always friendly and smiling and the owners made us feel like we were a part of their family. The food was fantastic, especially the home made bread. We stayed in the three star rooms which were small but comfortable. The kids had a great time with the donkeys and running...

We stayed in Rolfs for a night. It was a nice bright room and a good breakfast menu. We ate dinner in the restaurant. We both had fish and were a bit disappointed as felt the fish was under seasoned. However the medley of desserts (the chocolate tart and mousse) was delicious.

The food was fantastic!! Don't leave without some bread and make sure you have the cheese! The hosts were fantastic and the food was some of the best we had in Ireland. My only critique would be that the rooms are a wee bit small and I could hear my neighbors. Other than that, beautiful and clean accommodations.
