I stayed there this April in one of the cottages it was very clean and warm and a short walk to the pubs and restaurants in the village. It was also an ideal base to discover Sherkin Island and most of west cork, I'd highly recommend it to anyone expecially if you're looking for somewhere pet friendly. Thanks for making...

What a lovely stay. We enjoyed 4 great days in Rolf's Country House, the ideal base from which to explore the islands and the charms of West Cork. Dinner on our first night was a special treat in a warm, relaxed setting - fresh scallops with seasonal vegetables - wild garlic growing in their own garden ! Freshly brewed coffee...

The accommodation was quite underwhelming. Neat but a very small room. More like a hostel. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was excellent. We had a beautiful meal. Breakfast also was terrific.

Thank You for your lovely Comment, Rolfs is built into buildings over 400 years old and our rooms are cosy, however they all have high speed wifi, High Pressure showers and are set in gardens that have matured over 200 years.

Rolf's has been a favourite dining spot of ours on trips to Baltimore over the last 10 years, but tonight the kitchen and the welcoming Haffner family surpassed all expectations. This is a 5 star dining experience.

Lovely spot Baltimore and Rolfs is off the beaten track slightly and as there were no Taxis readily available at any time over the weekend it was a bit of a trek uphill at the end of the night (loads of people told us that it was impossible unless we booked one from the nearest town which wasn't worth it...

My twentysomething daughters and I stayed for three days in August and we all felt that clearly Rolfs Country House was our favorite place to stay on our two week trip. The Haffner family are fabulous hosts and the restaurant on the grounds prepares top notch meals. We loved the grounds and our simply furnished rooms and were so reluctant...

What a wonderful place, truly a home away from home. My friend and her six-year old and myself with my 4-year old had a great weekend in West Cork, staying in one of the two-bedroom cottages at Rolf's. Immaculately clean, spacious rooms, comfy beds, a kitchen equipped with everything you'd need for self-catering and a cozy livingroom with an open...
