Had a lovely one night break recently. Enjoyed the old world charm of this beautiful old house, very welcoming and attentive staff. Had a very enjoyable evening meal. 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

Just back from 2 nights at the wonderful, quirky Rathmullan House where we were celebrating a wedding anniversary. Love staying somewhere with so much character (& a private beach!!) Highlights for us: - Great family service, nothing too much trouble - A serious body-pummelling-health-benefitting-body-realigning massage from Bernie - 10/10) - Beautifullly decorated, spacious rooms (ours had patio & table/chairs,a lovely...

Enjoyed a relaxing overnight stay in July. Room was beautiful, immaculately clean, bathroom was lush especially the roll top bath. Dinner was really lovely although hubbie was very disappointed they had 'ran out' of triple cooked chips to accompany his lobster. We also sampled two pizza's for lunch which were delicious. Staff very attentive but not too in your face.... More

Just back from a business meeting in Donegal stayed in Rathmullan house for my first time. What a hidden gem! A great experince from the freindly welcome to the most comfortable room with sea views. I stay away most weeks with work and hotels are so bland, not this place! The gardens are brilliant and I can see why lots... More

We recently stayed at Rathmullan House for two nights. We had not been there for a while but found it as relaxing as we had done previously. We had a superior room which was on the ground floor near the swimming pool. We had an outside space- a patio, but might have preferred to be nor the floor above for... More

We stayed here for one night only and we wished we could stay for longer. The room was lovely and spacious with a little outside terrace and a bathtub in the bathroom. There was a setup for tea and cookies, which was a nice touch. Dinner was delicious. The hotel is nice for families with children because they have an... More

Was staying in the area and was recommended to eat in the Tap House Pizza/bar in the hotel. It was a great place to eat Pizza's - simple service but quality excellent. Kids loved it and the home brewed beers were excellent - really different tastes. Hotel setting is beautiful and would be wonderful for a special event. The staff... More
