The Space

Fort Royal lies in an idyllic location on the shores of Lough Swilly in North Donegal, in the picturesque harbour village of Rathmullan.

Garden Cottage sits in a beautiful location within the mature grounds of Fort Royal Country House, formerly one of the county's most well-known hotels. Part of the property's original stable block, the cottage offers a dining area open to the minstrel gallery above, and with access out to a private, secluded kitchen garden. Kitchen is fully equipped, and leads through to a snug sitting room with TV and DVD. The gallery landing above leads to a double bedroom, and bathroom with bath/shower.

The real magic though lies in the beautiful grounds outside- you will step out of the door into 8 acres of wonderfully mature parkland and gardens, with direct, private access onto one of the best beaches in County Donegal, with 2 km of unbroken sand sloping gently down into Lough Swilly. Your private tennis court (shared between the four residences on site) has among the best views of any court in Ireland!

The shops, restaurants, pubs and amenities of the village are a few minutes' stroll along the beach or road, and the local area is an ideal holiday destination for walkers, cyclists, golfers and watersport fans alike- everything you need is on your doorstep. Alternatively, there can be no better place than Rathmullan to simply change down a few gears, kick back and relax...
