Rosapenna Hotel


We are sorry, there are no rooms available at this accommodation at the moment


Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort, Downings, County Donegal 

Four-Star Links Golf Resort. Country Location

Located in a stunning part of the country, as a visiting golfer you are in Rosapenna because of their two wonderful links golf courses. Due to its northerly location on the adjacent peninsula to Ballyliffin, its not always easy to fit Rosapenna into an already hectic golfing schedule but it’s certainly worth the effort. As for the hotel itself, there are a variety of rooms available and we would recommend that you choose one of the Bayview Suites, offering views over Sheephaven Bay. Like Ballyliffin, it’s possible to play one of the two links courses from Letterkenny or Derry but if playing both courses, it makes sense to put down roots for a night or two.

Sightseeing & Tourist Attractions in West & Northwest Ireland

The main attraction of Ireland as a golf destination may indeed be its great golf courses but the overall experience is influenced by many other factors including great accommodation options, restaurants, pubs, people, and not least it’s stunning scenery and superb visitor attractions. Each region offers something very different and with all locations being quite close together, it’s very easy to mix the stunning countryside and coastline with more urban attractions.

We work closely with our clients to recommend what suits their trip best. You may have a full day to spend sightseeing or you may prefer to squeeze in a quick scenic stop on the way to or from the golf course but we will make sure that you maximise your experience at all times. The below is intended as a very general guide to sightseeing in West and Northwest Ireland Ireland.

Often the path less travelled in Ireland, the region has much to offer. Galway is a vibrant city with excellent restaurants, shops and pubs and it’s a great base from which to explore the the area. Moving west towards Connemara and the beautiful town of Clifden, you will encounter some of the most ruggedly beautiful scenery in Ireland and should include a visit to Connemara National Park and take a hike up Diamond Hill. Other recommendations include Kylemore Abbey (pictured below), the scenic Renvyle Peninsula, Aran Islands and the Quiet Man Museum in Cong.

Kylemore Abbey

Travelling north from Connemara, Westport is another lively, picturesque town from where you should make sure to visit Westport House and Gardens, while the more energetic amongst us will enjoy a hike up Croagh Patrick, known as Ireland’s Holy Mountain (pictured below). Another interesting stop is the Ceide Fields Visitor Centre near Ballycastle, while the towering Slieve League Cliffs and Glenveagh National Park should not be missed when in Donegal.
