    “My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing week at the Old Coach House!”

    The property was so tastefully decorated (by the fabulous Amy @wildandrosie) with super-comfortable beds and linens. The location was serene with picturesque gardens, all a stone's throw from the sandy beach at Rathmullan. We made use of the 2-person kayak available and barbecue (paddle boards and bikes also available for guests). It is a short five minute walk along a woodland path to Rathmullan House and a couple of minutes to the White Harte pub and Belle's kitchen too, great to have all on ...

Would definitely recommend to anyone! Our dog was devastated she had to leave! 5* Many thanks! :-)

The property

Nestled within the County Donegal village of Rathmullan is The Old Rectory Coach House, a charming, three-bedroom cottage.

Traditionally furnished, and retaining some of the home’s original features, The Old Rectory Coach House is well-positioned near the shoreline, a haven for watersports and outdoor enthusiasts, accommodating up to six guests.

Travel down and park up on the private driveway, arriving at a pretty garden, with blooms, mature shrubs and seating dotted throughout.

Step indoors to reach the kitchen/diner, fully-equipped for a self-catered stay, where you can prepare and enjoy meals, or opt for an alfresco affair within the pet-friendly outdoor space.

The sitting room offers a homely feel, with a lovely open fire to light on cooler evenings, before sloping off to sleep in one of the three bedrooms on offer, including two doubles and one twin.

A ground-floor shower room services the bedrooms, where you can prepare for your coming days, starting off locally in the village, where you can stock up on the essentials, dine out, try your hand at kayaking and windsurfing at Rathmullan Bay Beach, or hike through Rathmullan Wood.

With Glenveagh National Park a car journey away, peppered with beautiful loughs, lofty peaks, and guided trails, be sure to visit the remote grounds of Glenveagh Castle, ending your day with vistas of Astelleen Burn Waterfall.

For a hub of activity, head to Letterkenny, where you can practise your swing, shop, dine out, brush up on your local knowledge and visit the Tropical World Zoo, whilst Derry, one of the largest cities in Northern Ireland can be reached by car, with the St Eugene's Cathedral, Museum of Free Derry, and River Foyle all awaiting.

However you spend your trip, experience County Donegal from The Old Rectory Coach House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €350.

About the location

RATHMULLAN, COUNTY DONEGAL

Letterkenny 15 miles.

Nestled on the shore of Lough Swilly on the Fanad Peninsula, the quaint village of Rathmullan has a colourful history. It was from here that the last of the Celtic chieftains fled Ireland, now known as the Flight of the Earls, and there is an interesting heritage centre in the village commemorating this vital event in Ireland’s history. This sleepy seaside village offers a variety of local shops and pubs and a long sandy beach ideal for lazy days. The Fanad Peninsula is a haven for walkers, hikers and nature enthusiasts, and boasts a stunning coastline. The summer ferry crosses Lough Swilly to Buncrana, opening up Inishowen and beyond, and it’s only a short distance to the town of Letterkenny.
