Rathmullan House


The walled kitchen garden where a broad range of soft fruit, vegetables, salad crops and herbs are cultivated for the award winning hotel kitchens. There are fine specimen trees, notably an extraordinary weeping elm. Adjacent to the Restaurant is a recently made tranquillity garden with a contemporary sculpture by Zara Cunningham-Bell. Set in idyllic wooded grounds overlooking Lough Swilly and just a few steps from a two-mile long golden beach.
