Lonely Planet review
This country house might be large and luxurious but the welcome from the family owners is so warm that you feel like you’re staying with friends. Sprawled over wooded gardens on the shores of Lough Swilly, the original house dates from the 1780s, but extensions are sympathetic and stylish. Higher-priced rooms have claw-foot baths and some open to balconies or terraces. There’s a tennis court, two genteel bars, and a glass-paned restaurant, the Weeping Elm, utilising organic produce from the property’s walled gardens (menus €45 to €55).
Our independent authors have visited Rathmullan House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Fanad Peninsula.
