Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Mark Foyle, the owner, has seemingly endless enthusiasm for the Rosleague project. The energy he brings to it helps make it a very special place,’ say regular Guide correspondents this year, of this pink-washed Regency manor house on the shores of Ballinakill Bay. With open fires, historical paintings and ‘uniformly pleasant’ staff, the hotel has a ‘relaxed’, old-world atmosphere. ‘It somehow adapts to the mood of its guests: you can usually find convivial company if you want it, but you can sit quietly by a log and turf fire if you prefer.’ Spacious bedrooms and suites are decorated in traditional country-house style, many with antiques; all have views of lough, gardens or forest. In the dining room, chef Emmanuel Neu cooks with home-grown produce and locally sourced ingredients – Cleggan Bay crab, line-caught mackerel, Leenane mountain lamb. Seafood, particularly, is praised. ‘We had perfect plump scallops with cherry tomatoes and asparagus, hake with butter and capers, halibut with celeriac purée.’ Breakfast on ‘devilled kidneys and fresh fish alongside more conventional cooked dishes’.
