After a day of golf or touring the region, visitors can treat themselves to fantastic food and drink at the hotel’s Vardon Restaurant, named in honour of professional golfer Harry Vardon, who visited Rosapenna in 1906. The restaurant, which serves breakfast, dinner and Sunday lunch, specialises in local seafood, with freshly caught lobster, scallops and crab often on the menu. For a quick snack or round of drinks, people can also drop into the Old Tom Morris Bar, which is open daily and regularly features live music.
The hotel is situated 16 miles from Glenveagh National Park as well as on a safe, sheltered bay ideal for water sports with a four mile sandy beach affording views across to Ards and Muckish Mountain.
