I am a little embarrassed at how long it has taken me to write a review of this truly excellent country house hotel we stayed in last year. My wife is from Belfast but I had never been to Donegal and so on a visit to family in Belfast we booked a night at this highly recommended

This is a true gem of a place for anyone seeking a secluded spot with direct access to the beach and fabulous facilities, locally sourced food and all the little touches that turn a visit into an unforgettable experience. You’ll want to return. Excellent lunch in restaurant.

Such a relaxing atmospheric place. So cosy and welcoming. Right beside a beach. One of the highlights is to read a book beside one of the open fireplaces. Food is wonderful and one of the highlights of visiting here. Staff are friendly and really good at their jobs.

Do you have a spa?
Many thanks for your question. The hotel does not have a spa. We have a swimming pool for guests but no spa facility. We recommend our guests visit the Looking Glass in Rathmullan which is an excellent award winning spa and you will be well looked after by Aoife. Many thanks Patrick Rathmullan House

Hi, Sorry, I have no connection with the hotel, so I suggest you call them for a definitive answer. I would be very surprised if any of the facilities were closed as Easter must be a prime time for them!

"I don't think there are any bad rooms."
"Rooms on the ground floor have a terrace"
"Depends on what you like."
"The new regency wing rooms are very big and have large bathrooms."
