So this was my first time in Donegal and wow, wow, wow! Rathmullan house is the perfect base from where to explore this amazing county. A short stroll through the garden takes you to the beach and what a view! Every direction you look is just a feast for the eyes and the soul.

Spent 4 nights here end of July. Reviewed it last year but didn't want to be too enthusiastic in case it got booked out. Rooms in the newer wing are spacious, comfortable, excellent beds. Best breakfast anywhere. Excellent dinner choices, changing middle of each week.

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!

"If there are sea view rooms --- ask for them as the scenery is lovely. We had a garden view to front which was lovely as well."
"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."
