Menu in lower bar very restricted- you need to like pizza and probably not suited to older people.some rooms are a little bit jaded and could do with refurbishment.main restaurant and food excellent. Service good as we were in large partyy

This was our second visit having fallen in love with the place last year. We are two ladies travelling together and so we have single rooms. The ones we had were once again lovely and spacious on the ground floor near the swimming pool. We had access to a patio and the gardens of the hotel. The rooms have everything... More

After being recommended the exceptional pizza at The Taphouse @ Rathmullan House we were eager to try it. After calling to check opening times we arrived a 2.50pm to see mouth watering pizza being delivered to the adjoining tables. After waiting - not knowing if table service was provided we went into the bar only to be told pizza service... More

Rathmullan House and the town of Rathmullan were delightful discoveries. The maor is only a few yards from the sea, and we enjoyed walking to town along the water and returning on a path through the green foliage. People at the manor and everyone we met in town were incredibly gracious. Someone even offered to drive us back to the... More

Love this place! Have never personally stayed in the hotel, family members have, I stay in the holiday cottages in the grounds. But I have enjoyed all the hotel has to offer and it is home from home. Main restaurant cuisine is delicious, using a lot of local produce and fruit and veg from their own walled garden. Wood fired... More

Three of us had dinner in the restaurant. The food here is great. We had lamb, brill, and a mixed fish dish as mains. Dishes are creative and imaginative. Price wise mid €20 for most mains, half that for starters. Wine list reasonable. The house itself is beautiful and on exquisite grounds with great beach access and a lovely working... More

This was an amazing combination of 5 star hotel and bed & breakfast. The rooms was spacious with a very comfortable bed. The food was excellent. The vegetables are grown on site and the meat is bought from local farmers. The staff is very friendly, attentive and by the end of the first day they know your name and room... More
