We had a great experience both dining and staying at Rolfs. The service, food and overall quality was a fabulous experience. At all times we felt safe & very comfortable during our stay. The oysters are to die for. The team looked after all our needs. We will be back.
What a fabulous hotel. We stayed for two nights in mid-September & fell in love with Rolf's. Federica & her family & staff were absolutely wonderful, welcoming & treating us like old friends. The food is just superb - local ingredients cooked by chefs with a real passion for the food. You MUST have dinner here at least once during your stay! The breakfasts are brilliant - filling & set you up for a day of exploring Baltimore, Sherkin Island & the beautiful surroundings of West Cork. We will definitely be back, as soon as we can! Thanks Federica & all at Rolf's!
My fiance Maura, her sister Eleanor and I spent a wonderful week at Rolf's in Baltimore. We were just delighted with the cottage we stayed in and in particular the wonderful people who made us feel so welcome to include Friederike, Johannes and Stephen. We dined in quite a few lovely restaurants in West Cork during our trip but we all agreed that the dining experience in Rolfs itself was absolutely second to none. Hats off to Johannes and Stephen in that regard two outstanding chefs and Friederike for her professional and very friendly service. All the staff at Rolfs were a pleasure to deal with. If you are thinking about a trip to the wonderful Baltimore look no further than Rolfs for a 5 star experience. David MacMunn.
We have just returned from a 2 night stay in Rolfs Country House. This is my 3rd stay - over a period of many years and it exceeded my expectations. Improvements seem to be constant and this was reflected in our beautiful, simple and uncluttered bedroom. Our location was central to the Restaurant, garden and car park, yet quiet and restful. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a drink in the serene garden. The peacefulness of the location - yet the convenience of a short walk to the Village makes it perfect for a visit to West Cork and explore the locality. We enjoyed a boat trip to Cape Clear & The Fastnet - returning for a delicious meal in the Restaurant, cooked and served with a smile. The breakfast was one of the best we have enjoyed in any Hotel/B&B for some time - the perfect start to our day. The staff were helpful, always polite and despite the wearing of masks, we could see those smiles..... We cannot wait to come back in 2022 and just wish we could have stayed on a little longer.... LOVED IT - thank you!…
We booked this hotel for a week in mid July. We booked early in the year and hoped that things would have been opened up in July. We were given a warm welcome by Steven and Fredrica. The room was lovely with subtle restful colours, and a good ensuite. Coffee and tea facilities available at all times. The weather was glorious and this facilitated eating in the beautiful gardens. I could write a book about the food. A great choice of menu and cooked to your taste. Coming back in the afternoon facilitated a cooling drink or a glorious ice cream. Would I stay in Rolfs hotel again? A resounding yes.
My fiance and I stayed at Rolfs in July 2021, we had never stayed in west cork before and my god we could not have been luckier to stumble across probably the most enjoyable stay we have ever had in Ireland. With personal touches galore, professional and friendly staff who seem to genuinely care about their establishment, this place is magic from start to finish. The food is not just good, it is utterly spectacular, from the fresh Crevettes, and the most tender venison and many other options it is unforgettable. I could not recommend this place any higher, all the staff and owners should be so so proud of everything they have achieved in creating this intimate slice of paradise nestled just up the hill within walking distance of beautiful Baltimore. Thanks so much again guys we will definitely be back. Gary and Sarah Mitchelstown Co Cork…
We have stayed at Rolfs Country house on two occasions ; in Sept 2020 & in June 2021. We found the welcome and personal touch absolutely wonderful. The food (breakfast in particular) was delicious. The dinner experience was unforgettable also. The lovely gardens and surrounding countryside just adds to the sense of peace & tranquility. The location close to the village of Baltimore is also just great. A good base to explore the lovely West Cork area. We look forward to our next visit.
My wife and I stayed at Rolfs for two nights and loved every minute. From the moment we checked in till we checked out we were treated to some of the highest quality service we have ever encountered. We had dinner there both nights and the standard of food was excellent, as was breakfast both mornings. Honestly can’t fault the place. Thanks to all the lovely people working at Rolfs for a lovely couple of nights. We have every intention of returning.
Lush gardens, impeccable service and tranquil atmosphere makes Rolf House the perfect location to sit back and chill. The team work very hard and the hospitality is genuine and warm, the food tasty and accommodation homely and comfortable . We are already planning a return visit .
We had a beautiful meal here last night. Steak and lamb were cooked perfectly. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and we will also return. A lovely setting in the garden where we ate our meal and the staff were so nice. If in baltimore its a great spot.
