We did not stay in the hotel but spent a lovely evening in the Cellar Bar, tasting the Kinnegar beers and eating delicious pizza. We tried to book on a second night during our holiday but sadly there was a wedding on and the house was closed to the public. Well worth a visit.

Rathmullan House, located on the periphery of town, is a beautiful, quietproperty and lovely hotel. The hotel provides spacious accommodation with views of the grounds, which are quite large and secluded. The bathrooms are notably comfortable with a separate bathtub and shower and I must comment on the excellent water pressure here as this is such a rarity in historic... More

Great evening with friends sampling the Kinnegar beers and wonderful pizza. A must stop if you are staying at the hotel or in the Rathmullan area on holiday. Be sure to arrive in early evening so you can watch the sunset.....

I seem to come here every year now, on the annual pilgrimage "home" from Oz to Ireland. Every time, the cellar bar seems to have changed. In its current incarnation it's the outlet for "Kinnegar farmhouse beers" and wood-fired pizzas. Nice pizzas, slightly limited choice. Ice creams for desert. The beers are probably better suited to a connoiseur review rather... More

Went for a wedding recently and stayed 2 nights. On arrival, staff couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent level of attentiveness, but not to overbearing. Food in the cellar bar on the Friday night was great, and the staff looked out, to make sure all got what was required, and nothing seemed to be a hassle for them. The room... More

Visited again, excellent staff, room fine. Breakfast great too, it will keep you going for the day. I only wish the chef [s?] realise that just because you source excellent produce, you cant pop a premium price on it! A scallop starter, €15, for 3 small nicely cooked scallops, little bit of greenery, overpriced and the fish main course was... More

Stayed for a wedding recently and loved it. The staff, the old style rooms and the whole layout of the place is excellent. The meal considering it was for 120 guests was outstanding and that view was shared by everyone. Didn't make use of the swimming or tennis but the walled garden, grounds and beach were lovely. Thanks to all... More

As an American couple touring Ireland on our own, one of our goals was to escape other Americans. At Rathmullan house, we succeeded! For two days and nights there, we enjoyed everything about the place, from the breakfasts to the peat fires in all the ground floor rooms, walking on the beach, the rabbits on the lawn, the swims in...
