Rathmullan House

Rathmullan House, a four star Ireland country House, is situated on the shores of Lough Swilly, Co Donegal in the North West region of Ireland. Donegal is undoubtedly one of Ireland’s most beautiful counties and has everything from wonderful Atlantic Beaches, idyllic unspoiled lakes to rambling hills and mountains, forest walks and open friendly people, delighted to welcome you. For the sports enthusiast, superb links and inland golf courses, excellent horse-riding, hill walking and all kinds of angling – game, course and deep-sea fishing are on offer.

An outstanding feature of Rathmullan House is the glowing silk Arabian tent designed dining room where the cooking is in Irish Country House style. Where possible, organic fruit, vegetables and herbs are used from the walled garden. Locally caught fish and seafood is a specialty, as is Donegal lamb, which can be described as “pre-salé”. A gastronomes term for the wonderful flavour the meat takes on due to the grazing enriched by wind-borne deposits of minerals from salty sea air. The breakfast buffet at Rathmullan House defies description: The food is excellent and if you eat breakfast you probably won’t want to think about lunch!

This gracious Irish Country House Hotel, which was built in the 1760’s, enjoys a glorious seting above the shores of Lough Swilly in the wild and beautiful county of Donegal and is typical of the Georgian era. The Ireland country house stands amid award winning gardens with lawns and trees which stretch down to one of the many deserted sandy beaches of the area. Inside this Ireland country house, elegant sitting rooms tastefully furnished with antiques and paintings provide slumbering comfort with views over the garden and Lough. Open turf fires keep them cosy in winter and provide the perfect setting of an Irish Coffee or a pint of Guinness.
