Why Billy Rea chose Rathmullan
Renovations of the cottage have been a real labour of love and hopefully visitors will love its charm. It has a warm and cosy feel and a solitude which relaxes the soul.
What makes this Cottage unique
When the owner first arrived at the cottage many years ago he was immediately charmed by the sound of the stream and the beautiful views. The cottage itself has the charm of a by-gone era with all the comforts demanded by the modern traveller.

Homely, warm and cosy cottage with a wonderful welcome in the heart of the Fanad Peninsula
This wonderful cottage had everything for the traveller from slippers for your evening rest by the log fire to a picnic basket for your day trip in stunning Donegal. Billy kindly met us with a very warm welcome and gave us a thorough tour of the cottage and advised us of places to eat locally and he was available to us at all times if we had any queries. The house had every comfort we needed, we had endless fuel for the fire and central heating. The essentials were all provided so there was no need to worry if we forgot anything. The bed and pillows were of excellent quality and the bed linen and towels were immaculate and changed halfway through our stay. Sleeping at the cottage was a pleasure as the peace and tranquility of the location was second to none. The decking area at the back of the cottage is a beautiful chill out space that the photos don’t capture. There’s lots of outdoor furniture in a well maintained south facing garden with a lovely herb garden to the side, wonderful for evening barbecues and lounging after a day’s touring. The property is entirely secluded and therefore very private, with outdoor and covered clothes lines. The location of this cottage is ideal as a base for exploring Donegal and Northern Ireland. Thank you Billy for sharing your beautiful cottage with us.
The most peaceful holiday
We stayed at the cottage for 10 days and couldn't of picked a better place to stay. The location is incredibly peaceful, the host is so polite and informative. On arrival the cottage was clean throughout and the essentials were all provided. Can't thank Billy enough for helping make our stay so special. 5* couldn't recommend this place enough!!!!
A wonderful home from home cottage
We were met by Billy who showed us his wonderful cottage, he was very welcoming and made us feel at home. The cottage is certainly one of the best we've ever stayed, it had everything you should wish to have and more, we enjoyed cosy evenings by the fire, magnificent views and dark peaceful nights for amazing nights sleep. We would highly recommend this cottage, knowing you will enjoy this wonderful experience and thank you Billy, you've done a great job!!
Home from home on holiday!
Been visiting family in Donegal for 40+ years and this is the best-equipped let we have had - everything we needed, and quality too. A warm welcome and clear explanation of where everything was from owner, Billy, who then left us to our holiday. Plenty of space outside for entertaining, if we'd had the weather. We had a couple of good meals, at the Harbourside Inn, Rathmullan, with good views of Lough Swilly, and a lovely meal for 13 of us at Ripples restaurant at Kerrykeel, with stunning views of Mulroy Bay. The cottage is far enough off the main routes to be relaxing and peaceful, but close enough to visit and be visited easily. This is a great base for visiting Donegal, and we would definitely hope to rent it again, as would members of our family who saw it! Many thanks again, Billy!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We try to remember what it is like to go to a holiday cottage and equip ours with all those wee extras that make life easier and the stay more comfortable.
I would be delighted for you to visit again.
A very nice cottage in a peaceful spot
We had a lovely relaxing week in this very well equipped and nicely furnished cottage. The property has an impressive garden with a superb outlook from its elevated site. It really is very peaceful here and it proved to be an ideal base for exploring Donegal. Our thanks to Billy for greeting us so warmly on our arrival and for being so pleasant and professional to deal with.
It was a pleasure to have you stay in Drumacloghan. I hope you will return in the future.
This is one of the best cottages we've ever had. Billy is such a friendly guy, showed us everything in and around the house. It is so nice and cosy in the cottage, lovingly decorated and we loved to stay here. Thank you Billy, that we could live in your cottage during our stay.
The Cottage is ideally placed in a private location down a long lane, far way from passing traffic. It is set in half an acre of mature gardens with sweeping views of Lough Swilly and the hills beyond.
Within an easy 2 hour drive of Belfast with its shops, museums and Titanic Quarter. A drive away from the Antrim Coast and Giant's Causeway with its fascinating landscape.
Closer at hand is the historic town of Ramelton with its peaceful meandering river and bustling Letterkenny with a wide range of shops, restaurants, pubs and leisure facilities.
If you prefer the peaceful life you will be close to some of the most stunning beaches, rolling countryside and woodland walks imaginable.
The Wild Atlantic Way is close by and a drive along this provides panoramic sea views of the stormy Atlantic waves.
Glenveagh National Park is 40 minutes away and well worth the visit. The bus from the visitors' centre winds its way beside a lake to the stunning Glenveagh Castle with its beautiful gardens. If you are feeling energetic bicycles can be hired for the journey.
Sailing, golfing, horse-riding, fishing, walking, can all be enjoyed nearby. A great location for all sorts of outdoor activities.
