This hotel has got real basics right - great service, quality, great staff. Truly recommended hotel. Nice simple swimming pool, great bar serving local 'craft' beers, (so nice I bought 2 cases to take home!) large lounge rooms giving proper country house feel and yet only a short walk to the beach. The restaurant had a great menu and food... More

Beautiful hotel in stunning setting. Food and service flawless. Very relaxed comfortable feel, not at all showy and not glitzy but oozes charm and character. Pricey but we felt as if we had enjoyed value for money as it is somewhere quite special.

Great for kids too - swimming pool, beach and tennis court were made use off. The staff are brilliant - very friendly/relaxed, but professional/experienced too. We... More

Loved the dining room and the way the ceiling was lit up with tiny lights through fabric. The food was great. It is set in fabulous grounds leading to beautiful beach. The... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Rathmullan House. Full of character, stunning surroundings with beautiful gardens leading to a lovely sandy beach. We had the doggy room as we brought our labrador with us and it was great to just open the doors onto a great little garden/patio area which was very safe away from cars. Fabulous food... More

What more can be said of Rathmullan House other than perfect! It's home from home with the most attentive, fabulous service. Faultless! From the situation on rolling lawns to the proximity to the beautiful beach, Rathmullan House is a real treat. The food is homely and standards are nothing short of first class. Having just returned from a stay in... More
