Proceeding from Rathmullan in the direction of Glenvar/Portsalon continue after Otway Golf Club (on the right) for approximately 1.5 miles climbing to the top of a bendy brae and as you begin the descent you will pass a thatched cottage on the left – turn immediately left after this and the property will be found on the left after about 50 metres.
The ever popular coastal village therefore is just 7 – 8 minutes away by car whilst in the opposite direction Portsalon can be reached in 12 – 14 minutes.
The name Rathmullan derives from the Irish name Ráth Maoláin which means ‘The Ringfort of Maoláin’. It is situated on the western shores of Lough Swilly 11 km from Ramelton and 12 km from Milford and serves as an important historical village as it was the scene of The Flight of the Earls in 1607 – a major turning point in Irish history.
Consistently one of the county`s most popular holiday destinations, Rathmullan’s expansive sandy beach with its long jetty is breathtaking.
Local amenities include 3 shops, a resource centre, the renowned Rathmullan House Hotel with it’s award winning restaurant as well as horse riding and the links golf course at Otway. The comprehensive facilities of Letterkenny are about a 25 min drive.
Portsalon is also one of the leading coastal areas of the county with its challenging 18 hole links golf course (with recent improvements by Paul McGinley – Ryder Cup Captain), magnificent sandy beach plus the ever popular Stores Bar and Sarah’s Restaurant.
Also worthy of mention are the magnificent Ballymastocker Bay (halfway between the property & Portsalon) and the Black Lakes of Knockalla (halfway between the property & Ballymastocker Bay).
