Stayed here for a wedding. The room was massive with a good bathroom. The staff were very good at their jobs. The food was great. The steak is amazing. The setting of this property is second to none. Very relaxing. I would go back definitely.

We stayed for 2 nights during our drive along with Wild Atlantic Way. The location is superb... a quiet property just up from a secluded beach. We had a lovely big room with a balcony overlooking a beautiful garden. Lovely common rooms with cozy fireplaces, perfect for a glass of wine and a book or a chat. Excellent selection of... More

Stayed here for one night during our 2 week trip to Ireland. Rathmullan House is very historic and beautiful. Rooms were very clean, the gardens are pretty, and having an indoor pool was an extra bonus, espicially if you are traveling with kids. We ate at the hotel's restaurant which was very good. Overall this is a nice place, but... More

we had 2 nights here, just to relax...and despite horrible weather, it's exactly what we did. The staff are all charming, and go out of their way to make you comfortable and nothing is too much trouble. The room was comfortable and had most of what you would want. There is also a nice pool. The grounds are well groomed... More

Rathmullan House has a fantastic location with a short walk onto the beach. Excellent rooms with great views and fantastic food. It's a 19th century building and therefore it has a more vintage character than most modern hotels. Staff were excellent and we had a great weekend.

Rathmullan House is a fabulous hotel. Right across from a beach and only a short distance from Rathmullan village. We stayed in a superior room which was so spacious with a lovely outdoor seating area and a beautiful free standing bath. They even have a separate dog room in case you want to bring your pet! The Tap Room serves... More

We had a wonderful weekend at Rathmullan House. Our room was large and very pretty. The only complaint would be the lack of a safe in the room. The food in the restaurant was excellent both in the evening and at breakfast. The pizzas in the Tap Room bar were delicious. The staff are the hotels greatest asset, friendly and... More

....tucked away on the shores of Lough Swilly. Every corner of this 19th century house holds a surprise for anyone who appreciates the elegance of days gone by. Add to this an excellent standard of hospitality and service along with mouthwatering food and beverage menus (which make good use of local produce) and you have an experience that you will... More

We were traveling as a group of 18 and they were great on accommodating all of us with great service. The grounds of the property are stunning with so much open land and just a short stroll to the ocean. The flowers were in full bloom and just added to the beauty of this place. The inside has a lovely... More

Stayed here overnight for a wedding and only wish that we could have stayed longer. A very comfortable, homely hotel. Lovely grounds and walks, stunning situation and lots of history. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms large and comfortable, we had a balcony that looked onto the lough. The food from canapes, wedding meal to breakfast was gorgeous, the hotel... More
