Lonely Planet review
This country house is large and luxurious with refreshingly non-frumpy furnishings. Sprawled over wooded gardens on the shores of Lough Swilly, the original house dates from the 1780s. The best of the 34 rooms have balconies or terraces. There’s a tennis court, two genteel bars, and a glass-paned restaurant, the Cook & Gardener , using organic produce from the property’s gardens.
Our independent authors have visited Rathmullan House Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Fanad Peninsula.
