Horrendously expensive for what you get.. rooms are fine. Very squeaky door handles, every trip to loo wakes the entire room up. Very loud road outside. The host was nice but super chatty to the point of oversharing and intrusive. Other than that it was fine.. boy was it eye wateringly expensive for a B+B though.
Rowanville Lodge had clear, uninterrupted, and breathtaking close views of Benbulben just over the fields. It is in a beautiful location with lots of things to see in the area. The accommodation itself was warm, very comfortable, clean and well presented. The breakfast was fantastic and really sets you up for the day. It had free, on site parking and fast wi-fi. Everything about Rowanville Lodge was great but the best was the very warm and sincere Irish welcome we received from our host Patricia. She clearly loves the area in which she lives and a full of tips for local sightseeing and restaurants - some we might have missed if not for her. Excellent value for money. Thanks again for a great stay!
Fabulous location in short driving distance of lots of attractions. Beautiful comfortable accommodation with lovely garden & great views of Benbulben. Pat is a very warm friendly host who couldn’t do enough for us. Enjoyed a perfectly cooked breakfast the next morning. Only small drawback is little or no wifi signal in the downstairs room although, we were next to the sunroom & could get full signal in there. Maybe a wifi booster plug in the too. would help.
We stayed for one night and couldn’t fault the place! Patricia was so friendly and welcoming. We travelled with our 10 week old baby and nothing was too much hassle. Our room was really spacious and fit our travel cot with plenty of room to move around. At breakfast Patricia offered to get us a Moses basket for the baby while we ate but our little girl was far too nosy for that! We would definitely stay again if we’re in the area!
Lovely place BUT horrible experience. Had booked the place for 2 nights, arrived everything was fine and the owner seemed quite polite at first. After our first night, right before breakfast we were told that she could not keep us for another night due 'double booking' someone else, and just walked away and acted as if nothing had happened. There was no real apology or any kind on sympathy from the owner since we had travelled for over 3 hours to get there, which she was well aware of, and had no where else to stay on such short notice. We later heard her speak to another guest about her family just arriving that same morning. I would strongly avoid staying here, especially if you don't want your birthday weekend ruined.
This was our second time to stay with Patricia and Mattie and we weren't disappointed. Our room was lovely with very comfortable beds. The full Irish breakfast was super and the kids had homemade pancakes with fresh fruit. Patricia even made scones for us on our last morning. Nothing was any trouble for them to assist us in making our stay in Sligo a more enjoyable one. Looking forward to our return trip. Definitely 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I stayed in this B&B overnight with my family en route to Donegal. The bedrooms varied considerably in size. My partner & I had a standard double which was definitely cramped but ok for an overnight stay. Two other family members had a twin room which had lots of space. Both rooms were en-suite with ample toiletries and were absolutely spotless. Breakfast was served in the Conservatory overlooking the beautiful views across the Ben Bulben mountains. While the house is located on the main Sligo road it was remarkably quiet.
What more can you ask for than breakfast with a view of Benbulben! Our room was clean and spacious if a little on the dark side. Phone signal was very bad as we were at lower level room, however it was a nice break from technology! Our hosts Patricia & Mattie were very welcoming, the little King Charles was also very friendly especially if you let him in the front door, friend for life ;) They were very helpful in recommending places to see nearby and places to eat in the evening. I'd love to come back sometime.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rowanville Lodge B&B! Pat was delightful and provided wonderful tips and communication. Rooms were clean and cozy with comfy beds and a wonderful seating area provided for our family of 5. Breakfast was amazing and the view of Ben Bulben from the breakfast dining area was perfect! We were not disappointed and definitely recommend Pat and her hospitality at Rowanville Lodge! We would not hesitate staying again if we find ourselves back in Sligo!
In our regular trips to Ireland we always end our visit with four or five days at Rowanville Lodge, and it is always such a treat. This time we brought our cousins who had never been to Ireland and took them to all our favorite places. They totally agreed with us that Rowanville Lodge was a terrific stay, and they so enjoyed getting to know host Pat who puts so much into making this B&B a pleasant, restful, fun, and totally enjoyable place to stay. The breakfasts with amazing views of Ben Bulben through the room-long picture windows were a delight. New on the menu was Pat's special awesome porridge slathered with fresh raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. We ate it every day along with her wonderful home made bread and so much more We loved our daily walks to the sea with happy Lucki, and it was a delight to see a new born Rowanville calf from the breakfast room windows on our second day. We will miss this fine B&B until our next visit.…
