Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort
The luxury four star hotel in Donegal is set between two sandy beaches and within 800 acres of rugged links along the beautiful Donegal coastline. An amazing place to stay and play golf.
Set alongside Sheephaven Bay, this upscale hotel and golf resort has 2 championship courses with dramatic views of Downings Beach.
Golfers have been travelling to Rosapenna since the late 19th century when the Old Tom Morris links was ranked 3rd in the British Isles behind St.Andrews and Royal County Down. It was for this reason that great golfers of their time Harry Vardon, James Braid and Tom Ball holidayed in Rosapenna.
Warmly decorated rooms and suites have en suite bathrooms, as well as satellite TV, free WiFi, minifridges, and tea and coffeemaking equipment. Some offer beach or bay views. Suites add private balconies, sitting areas and free-standing tubs.
Amenities include a 9-hole academy course, an indoor pool and a whirlpool tub, plus a spa, a steam room and a sauna. There’s also a golf pavilion featuring a restaurant, a lounge, a game room and event space.
The Rosapenna Golf Resort acquired the St Patrick’s Links in late 2012, a former 36-hole facility developed by the Walsh Family of Carrigart. The Maheramagorgan Links designed by Irish architect Eddie Hackett and the Trá Mór Links designed by PGA Professional Joanne O’Haire, both opened for play in the mid-1990’s. Discussions ensued with Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design, with Tom finalising his lay-out with lead associate Eric Iverson in March 2013. Tom & his team have breathed new life into this spectacular site along Tramore Beach in North Donegal. Originally encompassing 36 holes, Tom has fashioned 18 unrecognisable and unforgettable holes over the same tract of land. The result? A sprawling links that is destined to become a modern great. The routing takes golfers on a journey through huge dunes, to high above Sheephaven Bay, along the coast, then back over some more gentle dunes… and that’s just the front nine! With plenty of width and an eclectic mix of naturalised bunkers, the course will be unlike anything in the UK & Ireland… or anywhere else for that matter.
