We enjoyed the atmosphere. The place look very cute, and the waiter staff is very kind. We had a steak, bottle of wine and dessert, all of these was very high quality and they have also a wonderful whiskey selection.

Such a gorgeous restaurant, tucked away at the top of a narrow road. Really friendly and helpful staff with a menu to die for. I highly recommend the scallops and the tiramisu. Really delicious food and a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Rolfs is a family-run business established in 1979 by the Haffner family. Originally an old farmhouse, with a courtyard surrounded by traditional stone build outhouses and set in 4.5 Acres of mature grounds and gardens.
The buildings, dating back several hundred years have been carefully restored and renovated in its original style and character, providing beautiful Bedrooms, Holiday Cottages and an award winning a la carte Restaurant and Wine Bar.
Located on Irelands south coast, amid spectacular scenery and unspoiled nature.
Overlooking Roaringwaterbay and with magnificent views of Carbery's hundred isles, the Village of Baltimore is situated along the most southern west cork coast amid some of Irelands most spectacular scenery.
The almost subtropical climate of the region is due to the effect of the Gulf-stream sweeping in from the Atlantic, influencing plant and marine life making this a paradise for gardeners and water sports enthusiasts alike.
