Attended a family wedding here. Fantastic spot. Food excellent. Service excellent. Nothing to much bother for staff. Superior room great size, comfortable beds, lovely seating area and balcony. Bathroom with old roll top bath but also modern shower. One slight complaint maybe the lack of an extractor fan in the bathroom, causing smells to linger! Breakfast 5 star. Great selection... More

Lovely hotel in a lovely location. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, good food and one of the most delicious breakfasts we have ever had, particularly enjoyable after an early morning swim in the hotel's pool. We hope to go back.

My husband and I stayed here over Valentines weekend and we had a fantastic time! The staff were so welcoming on arrival and showed us to our room which was beautiful. It had a huge bed, sofa, flat screen TV, beautiful bathtub and everything was immaculately clean. We had dinner both nights in The Cook & Gardner and the food... More

We visited over Valentine's weekend and had a wonderful time. This is a very welcoming 'old style' Irish mansion. It is in North Donegal 120 miles from Belfast. The whole family owned set up suggests welcome and relaxation from the warm sitting rooms, bar, swimming pool, gardens and beach (200 feet from the front door). There's a spa as well!... More

Another wonderful weekend at Rathmullan House. We requested room 40 and got it with a complimentary upgrade. Well, we are frequent residents! After walking along picturesque Lough Swilly, a stone's throw from the hotel, we were welcomed to roaring fires in the relaxing & comfortable lounges. The house exudes character and within, the service is top-notch. Dinner, less formal now,... More

We had our wedding here a few days ago, with a party of 103. Everything was wonderful and faultless in terms of friendliness, service, quality of food, and ambience. The three log fires in consecutive rooms by the bar are perfect on winter afternoons, the fantastic local Kinnegar beer flowed freely and staff couldn't have been more responsive and pleasant,...

Stayed at Rathmullan House for a wedding early November as a family of 5,with 3 children aged 4,6,7. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough if u want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Rathmullan House is a beautiful Georgian house oozing charm and character with attention to detail being second to none! We stayed in... More
