An exceptional recreation of the last meal served on the Titanic - outstanding service from cocktails to petite fours.Poignant and thoughtful details from table settings and flowers to the beautifully produced menu booklet with historical details.Highly recommend the Titanic meal experience - perhaps skip lunch prior to the meal! Wines are additional of course but the list is extensive and it is possible to order wines by the glass to accompany each course. Reasonably priced wines also included.A taxi ride from the centre - £8 (Uber).Comfortable room with a view of the lough - decor is quirky, a modern take on Edwardian living and everything one would wish for to feel comfortable. The only thing missing was perhaps music over cocktails… there is so much attention to detail that I probably shouldn’t comment but a gramophone perhaps would be fun,.the music played during the meal was perfect. Unbelievable value for a unique and memorable evening.

We booked a dinner for 10 for our 25th Anniversary and went for the menu recommended by Conor. All I can say is that he knows his stuff - the Summer Tasting menu was exquisite and brilliantly matched to their wine list. There wasn't an empty plate returned to the kitchen. The welcome was warm and the rooms we used for the greeting/gathering and the dinner itself are beautifully presented and comfortable. The service was impeccable throughout. Bernie, Conor and family are a talented, professional and friendly team. I cannot recommend the dining experience highly enough.

We picked here to round off an amazing family get together week. Staff were amazing as soon as soon as the booking went in, with Bernie trying to get us a room with a view. We ended up with a lovely room on the top floor. It was spacious, clean and comfortable with a huge bathroom. Sleep quality was very good. The main feature here is the house itself. It is a beautiful building, finely finished with superb little touches everywhere you look. I can see what makes it a great wedding venue. And then there was breakfast. Without doubt, up there with the best we have ever enjoyed and the vegetaruan loved the exquisite options on the menu. We can only echo what everyone has said about the superb staff throughout. Wonderful experience and fine advert for Northern Ireland hospitality. Very highly recommended.

My son and his fiancé got Married last Thursday at Rayanne House and from start to finish the day was just perfect. Bernie and every member of staff were outstanding. The ceremony was outside and the space was beautifully decorated. The food and wine and cocktails just perfect and the bedrooms all different and so comfortable. Breakfast next morning once again was so good with loads of choice I would highly recommend.

I have stayed here before on business and was amazed at this place and staff. We returned for a 6 day break and brought the family with me this time. Even during the COVID 19 pandemic all of the staff strictly adhere to the guidelines. Conner and Bernie again made myself and my family extremely welcome and have gone out of their way to accommodate us on every occasion, even supplying us with items we couldn’t get on the mainland, thank you again. This hotel is a little gem and the food is absolutely amazing. The rooms are immaculate and well presented as are the dining facilities. We would like to thank Conner, Bernie and the rest of the staff for an amazing stay and look forward to booking again in the future.
