Stayed here for a wedding. The room was massive with a good bathroom. The staff were very good at their jobs. The food was great. The steak is amazing. The setting of this property is second to none. Very relaxing. I would go back definitely.

Rooms were very clean, the gardens are pretty, and having an indoor pool was an extra bonus, espicially if you are traveling with kids. We ate at the hotel's restaurant which was very good. Overall this is a nice place, but...

Rathmullan House has a fantastic location with a short walk onto the beach. Excellent rooms with great views and fantastic food. It's a 19th century building and therefore it has a more vintage character than most modern hotels. Staff were excellent and we had a great weekend.

We had a wonderful weekend at Rathmullan House. Our room was large and very pretty. The only complaint would be the lack of a safe in the room.
