    “The house was very comfortable and it had all amenities.”

    Location was great. Really enjoyed our stay, it was a home away from home and will definitely be staying here as my No 1 choice as a regular visitor to Ramelton. Very happy with the overall stay.

Enjoying a prime position near a host of amenities and upon the riverside, whilst offering guests flexible sleeping and living arrangements, a stunning multi-level garden, and a characterful interior, the property delivers the perfect base for a family escape.

Park up on the roadside before entering into The River House and ascending up to the first floor; here you will find the light-flooded open-plan living space, offering a well-equipped kitchen, a relaxed dining area, and a homely sitting area with a balcony onto the elevated patio.

Next door you will find the charming dining room, set up for formal meals with the woodburning stove alight, before descending to the ground floor, where you can relax in the sitting room with one of the many books on offer in hand.

When sleep calls, select between a ground-floor king-size with Sky TV and access to the rear patio, serviced by a shower room, and a king-size and a twin, both set on the second-floor, serviced by an indulgent bathroom with Jacuzzi bath.

Awaken to a stroll around the pretty gardens before travelling beyond The River House to stock up on the essentials, dine out and visit the stunning landscape of Lennon River Waterfall.

About the location


Letterkenny 8 miles.

The sleepy heritage town of Ramelton, County Donegal, sits at the start of the Fanad Peninsula, where the River Lennon joins Lough Swilly. Cut into a wooded valley, Ramelton dates back to the 17th century and the distinctive architecture of the warehouse buildings on the quays dominate the village. Ramelton has a colourful history as one of Donegal’s most important ports, with ships arriving from the Carribbean in the 1800s to export linen made in the village. Though quieter nowadays, an abundance of welcoming local shops and pubs still welcome visitors, and there are ample opportunities for fishermen and golfers in the region. The picturesque Fanad Head is just a short distance away, as are beaches at Rathmullan and Dunfanaghy.

Please note : This property does not accept Stag / Hens or Similar groups.
