I stayed here on Saturday the 20th and was disappointed.
The food was lovely but the portions were very small. I got no side to my meal but my partner did, which made no sense. I would have been left hungry only he gave me some of his sides. The coffee was also burnt at the meal and again in the morning.
Positives: the breakfast was substantial and the service was excellent. The surroundings and ambiance was perfect.
MAJOR let down was the fact that whoever took the booking did so with NO consideration for me. They put me in a room BETWEEN 2 families. The children were let run freely and noisily up and down the corridor and in and out of rooms, banging doors. They made a LOT of noise up to 2 in the morning! IF I was put in another room this hotel would have easily gotten 3 or 4 stars. When I complained all the receptionist said was, "Oh sorry, who would let their kids do that?"
Such a nightmare for a belated Valentines present that could have easily been a DREAM.
Very good price for B&B with dinner. Nice cosy bar, could do with music on a weekend. Nice meal although I didn't like the 2nd menu for people on a deal, I would have liked two courses from the normal menu. I saw one of the waiters bullying a younger waiter, pushing him which was not nice. But then I saw another senior waiter give out to him so it must be a culture in the dining room?? The bedrooms rooms were basic and clean, I would have liked more channels on the TV. Breakfast to our room was lovely. The swimming pool area was dated, the Jacuzzi looked murky but I saw a lady cleaning the shower area to high standard. The towels were seriously small in the pool area and threadbare. Check in and out was good. The bar staff were nice although they did not have a full complement of drinks for after dinner (amaretto). All in all I was happy with my stay a few niggles, however I would return and have recommended it to my parents. All it would take would be a few nips here and there to make it perfect.
Myself and my husband had a lovely time last weekend in Roganstown. The staff, food and service were very good. We would return in the future and would happily recommend it.
Fantastic stay yet again in Roganstown. Absolutely beautiful food in a very relaxed setting.
Hotel and facilities are lovely. Pleasant and helpful hotel staff.
The restaurant was terrible. 2.5 hours until we got our dinner. Had to complain a few times to get attention. Food was average. Disappointing meal.
Very comfortable, modern facilities, would stay again. Lovely.
(Should do more with front door entrance as we weren't sure if it was the main door.)
You should note that dinner time with this deal is from 17.30 -18.45
The hotel allowed us to push that out to 19.30 as the second party was not due till 19.00
Food was delicious & the staff helpful
Don't forget a swim hat for the pool
Overall, great value for money
Very nice stay over night, lovely dinner great staff very near Dublin airport. Definitely will stay again

Stayed at this lovely hotel on the nights of 13th and 14th Dec. The spa is terrific and should not be missed! Staff are so friendly and dedicated to making guests feel right at home. Rooms are great - we had a fantastic, high-ceilinged room at the front of the hotel and there was a christmas tree right outside our window ! Room had everything we needed. We will definitely go back to repeat the experience!
Lovely stay in a lovely hotel. The breakfast was top class. Bedrooms as you would like. So near the village of Swords.
Did not like this at all. Very poor.. Breakfast was very slow only few bits out then had to wait around for more to come out. Not great menu for dinner. No hot water in shower. When we told them. They didn't offer anything in return of us having to have cold showers for nights. Very disappointed in it.
Stayed the 20th Nov 2015 with my wife for one night. We found everyone working in the hotel to be friendly and helpful . The food was nice and good value for money. The rooms were clean and well maintained, we had one minor problem with the heating which was fixed quickly. I would recommend this hotel to a friends and family.
Enjoyed our stay.

Excellent hotel for a quiet evening, Dinner was very nice, room was large,very clean, breakfast was self service but equally nice. I have used this hotel before and would again....
Lovely hotel. Really friendly staff. Clean modern rooms with golf course view. Cater well for infants. Lovely pool area. Lovely food & restaurant service Only downside was a poor nights sleep as light sleeper and had extract fan in bathroom that was vibrating!! Just unlucky with room number I guess.. But lovely overall.
We spent two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was lvely and spotless as was the rest of the hotel. The facilities were fantastic , fabulous pool, steam room , sauna and jacuzzi. The staff were brilliant and so attentive. The food was lovely also but the menu for our package was very limited over the two nights which was a pity. Breakfast was lovely. We will return.
Lovely hotel - have stayed here before. Staff are lovely. Food is really good in the restaurant.
Roganstown Country House, beautifull setting, very welcoming, rooms spacious and most comfortable, breakfast perfect and served beautifully. The only negative aspect were directions and signposting of the House - they were inadaquate. I will return. M. D. Kerry .
We really enjoyed our stay here. the rooms are lovely as are the bathrooms.
The bar and dining areas are spotlessly clean.
The staff are very pleasant, efficient and helpful.
We look forward to staying here again in the future.
Great stay,had a ball,lovely staff,great breakfast,top class golf course,nice 1
Lovely hotel and excellent value. Staff were very helpful and the location was superb. Would definitely stay again

Booked one night St Patricks day with friends. Hotel great, Beautiful location you would never think you where near
Dublin City. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Food,excellent good choice on Bar and Evening Menu. Log fires in Bar and Dining room
just lovely and comfortable chairs to " chillax". We had such a lovely time would definately recommend to family and friends.
Delicious dinner, lovely room and excellent leisure facilities. The only issue, was that they seemed to have forgotten to bring our room service breakfast so we ended up getting it quite late, but overall a really good hotel and a very pleasant stay.
Lovely, lovely place, great room, tranquil setting, nice food and friendly staff. What more do you need.
Would visit again without a doubt.
Great hotel and food was excellent, staff were very friendly. Could do with some music/entertainmnet in the evenings though
Friendly staff - very accomodating. Good quality food & very quiet room (Sat stay)
Overall, very very pleased with our stay at Roganstown house. Beautiful rural location and hotel itself was very charming and had a real country manor feel, in particular the dining room with the chandeliers, comfortable chairs and gorgeous log fire. We just didn't want to leave. The bedroom was however a little bland in terms of décor. The food both at dinner and breakfast was absolutely divine and exceeded our expectations. Service in the dining room was,however, a little bit casual but no major complaints there just little things, like having to figure out whether we would be seated or not for breakfast, as the waitress just took our coffee/tea order and disappeared to the kitchen, leaving us standing at the dining-room entrance, wondering whether she would return to seat us. Leisure centre was lovely - clean and tranquil. We will certainly return.
Overall we had a very nice time staying in Roganstown, we were there to celebrate my partners birthday. When we checked in our room was freezing, the heat had to be put on manually although it heatedup pretty quickly. We had a nice lunch and a few drinks and then some of us used the pool and jacuzzi in the afternoon, and then had a lovely meal later that evening. I wasn't expecting anything special from the included set menu but we were all nicely surprised by how good the food was, we then settled down and relaxed in the bar for the rest of the evening. The following morning everyone in our party had breakfast but I have to say the breakfast wasn't great. I chose the traditional Irish breakfast but the food was average, the sausages could have been cooked a bit longer and I would have been disappointed if we just chose B&B.
Overall our group had a lovely time and we would stay in Roganstown again.
Lovely hotel, staff were very nice, facial in the spa was really good. Would stay here again, good value.
very good value for money! But bring a fur coat!!!!!!!! It was 3 degrees outside when we got there, and our room was like an ice box. When I asked how to turn on the heat I was told the heat only came on at 4pm and went off again at 10pm it came back on in the morning but was off by 10am. All of the hotel was really cold, due to the fact that the air con was on. So if you dont mind going outside to the swimming pool, and coming back into a very cold Hotel, then this is the one for you. Food was very nice and the swimming pool was realy good. If the hotel was warmer I would give it 4 stars, but as it was not I would give it 3 stars
Stayed on 17th December for a night. Had a lovely time, the staff were very friendly and the meal we had was excellent. The bar area was very relaxing with a lovely big fire. Didn't use the leisure facilities. Would definately recommend this hotel to friends and family.
Very much enjoyed our stay at Roganstown. The place itself is lovely, the food excellent and the staff very friendly.We will definitely go back there.
Nice hotel, friendly helpful staff. Relaxed bar. Pool nice and warm. Usually go the Marriot Ashbourne with the kids and wife for a one night break and swim, but they have started getting pricey again.
My partner and I stayed in The Roganstown Country Club Hotel recently for a nice romantic night away close to home.
The Hotel was set in lovely grounds and the weather made it perfect for a nice stroll. The hotel has a very old fashion theme throughout but it is done very well and has that warm homely feel. Rooms were nicely decorated and had everything you needed. We took advantage of the amenities including the pool and sauna area which was very relaxing especially because we where the only people there !!!!!!!! Swords town is 5mins away and been minus a child for the night the cinema was a nice addition and thank god we did break the day as the only bad point about the Hotel for some people is it is so so quiet. We enjoyed a lovely dinner in the bar that night and the staff where lovely and so helpful but god was the bar quiet and even though they had numerous televisions they were not put on even with the request of many of the men as the boxing fight was on that night, but to no avail most people left for their rooms very early as there was no atmosphere. Overall a lovely quiet relaxing break in a beautiful hotel just what we needed but to stay more then one night could be too boring.
We came to Roganstown to have a few days break and found the hotel superb. The room was of excellent standard with a most appealing open view over the golf course. The breakfast was very good indeed and also the leisure facility- again was very good. Staff were most welcoming and the overall experience was first class. We certainly will be making this a 'port of call ' again.

We, a group of 8, spent just one night on Saturday last here. The hotel is beautiful, in a lovely tranquil setting and exceptionally quiet. Excellent Leisure centre and all but 2 of our group used same. Pity was we had to leave early next morning meaning we could not have another swim. Our stay was to celebrate a 'special' birthday and we had a great night, with an excellent meal in the beautiful restaurant. We will without a doubt return. All of our group commented on the high standard of the bedrooms.
Roganstown Golf and Country Club hotel is an Old World hotel. My initial impression when we drove to the enterence was orne of dismay, I hasd more than a few misgivings at the time, however when we stepped inside it was a completely different world, truely homely. The staff were all very helpful and our room was beautifully decorated inkeeping with the character of the hotel. and the beds were top quality, very comfy. Am aspect very important to me as I suffer from severe back trouble. We enjoyed a lovely mesl s erved in the Dining Room and had our coffee served in the relaxing lounge, For anyone needing to get to the airport they had a shuttle bus service.My only gripe is that it is a good distance from Dublin City so not suitable for those thinking of shopping or visiting the sights in Dublin. A must for those wanting a break to get away from stressts and strains of life, definitly a 4 star and a place I wouldn't hesitate to return to.
Excellent,clean hotel,nice pool,food good. Lounge décor a little dull,needs a lift. Over all nice place,good value for money.
Great for relaxing on a long Easter weekend break. Good food and facilities and a nice setting.
This was our second stay at Roganstown and yet again we were not disappointed... We just stayed one night mores the pity... Firstly before we arrived we received a phone call from Gillian a few days prior to arrival to confirm our dinner reservation. We were there to celebrate our friend’s birthday. They were staying in the hotel as well on our recommendation. The room and pool area were both lovely. The 4 of us enjoyed a lovely dinner in the restaurant... fantastic choice of dishes... We all decided to pay the extra for the desert and it was well worth it (Thumbs up for the chocolate fondant it was perfect) the staff put a candle in our friend’s desert and sang happy birthday to her) Really nice touch.... All in all we had another great stay the personal service in the hotel in second to none... Looking forward to our next visit which I have already booked for my birthday....
<p>Excellent value for money. We we given sa warm reception and made to feel very welcome thoughout our stay</p>
<p>i booked this nites stay for 7 people to celebrate a birthday ... i have to say that i have absolutely no complaints. The rooms were lovely and the staff were very friendly... I thought that because it was so cheap that the food would not be nice .... it was excellent....The value for money was inceredible ...
we are hoping to repeat the experience after christmas .....</p>
<p>The room was nice as was the leisure centre. The package was great value for money although service was a little slow-I had to wait 20 minutes to get a hair dryer in the room and 20 minutes before getting a drink in the bar-overall a very enjoyable stay though.</p>
<p>We had a 5-star experience at Roganstown. Very friendly staff. Fantastic food. Wonderful setting. Thoroughly relaxing. Absolute bargin. looking forward to repeating the experience soon. </p>
Hi, I stayed in Roganstown Country Club on Aug 22 with 4 of my work collegues. It was my third time staying in Roganstown. I had originally made the booking for 4 but when I called Roganstown to see if it was possible to add another they were more than accommodating. The food was excellant, as usual and the room was fresh and clean. The welcome we got was great and the receptionist who checked us out was charming and had a great sense of humour. However, the service in the bar was slow and I would say less than professional for a 4 star hotel. The night porter was rude and abrupt. There was only one waitress on for breakfast the next day and she was very pleasant but tables were left uncleared, which did not give the dining room a 4 star look. When we checked out myself and my room mate paid the expected e59 but our friends who shared a room (there was 3 of them) only paid e50 each WHY?
All said it was good value and I would go back again but one of our party would not.
<p>Nice hotel with good food. Would visit again.</p>
<p>the hotel was nice and staff as well but very dissapointed with the food there was only two choices on main course </p>
<p>Lovely stay, great value. Rooms, staff, food, leisure center all excellent well worth it, will go again </p>
<p>This boutique hotel at Roganstown was a nice find. Neslted in the woodlands of North Co Dublin, I was taken with the Georgian setting and indeed the foyer was quite impressive - it was like stepping back in history. We were blessed as it was a glorious sunny day and so could dine al fresco on the pretty terrace. The staff were very friendly and I was well impressed with the food presented. It was too warm to even contemplate the sauna, pool and jacuzzi but it was nice to have that option.
All in all, it was an enjoyable stay - and only moments away from the airport, it's one to commit to memory before my next flight!</p>
<p>The hotel was lovely but a little hard to find. Our room had a wet room as a shower which we were not used to. We found the room very hot at night and we were kept awake by the sound of a boiler/cooler which was beside our room and the wedding which was below us. We thought there would be more grounds to walk in but most was taken up with the golf course. The food was nice and when I asked for more rice it was no problem. The staff were helpful and we enjoyed our swim.</p>
