Lady Margaret's Lodge is a mile North of the lovely village of Rathmullan in Co. Donegal, with direct access from the house down on to the stunning Kinnegar beach via a private garden path. The large spacious house is incredibly versatile and has great views over Lough Swilly and Inishowen. It is extremely well set up for all guests, but especially for families with young children/babies or bigger groups. Perfectly located for people attending events at Rathmullan House or Drumhalla House.

Boendet
The large open plan living space is incredibly versatile. It is upstairs in the lodge to allow you to relax, eat or socialise whilst enjoying the stunning views of Lough Swilly, Inishowen and Kinnegar beach. The Swilly is known as the 'Lake of Shadows' and it can be mesmerising to watch the changing colours as the sun hits the water. There are very few houses in the area where you do not have to cross a road to get down to the beach but Lady Margaret's Lodge is one of them. There is a path through the gardens of Lady Margaret's right on to the golden sands of Kinnegar and so it is perfectly safe to let excited little ones or dozy dogs run on ahead to get on to the sand! There is a dedicated patio areafor the Lodge and guests with table and seating for 8, as well as a large and smaller charcoal BBQ available.

When you get back from your sight seeing or trips down to the beach, the real fire upstairs is perfect for those more chilly Donegal days but the central heating also warms up the house nicely.

Downstairs are the bedrooms and three of the four bathrooms. All of the three main bedrooms have a large wardrobe, large chest of drawers, bedside lockers and lamps. Bedroom 1 has an en-suite with a large bath. Bedroom 2 also has an en-suite, this one with a shower, and we have a cot bed in this room to. There is also a wet room with shower opposite bedroom 3. Bedroom 4 is accessed by a door off Bedroom 1 and with its' bunk beds is ideal for kids sharing with their parents. There is also a utility room where the washing, drying and cleaning stuff is stored and a very large Hot Press/Airing Cupboard downstairs. Whilst obviously not top of your to do list whilst chilling by the sea, there is also a really good iron and ironing board if you need to look a bit smarter for attending a wedding, party or event at Rathmullan House or Drumhalla House.

As well as the main living, eating and cooking space upstairs, there is a small lounge which doubles up as bedroom 5 as there is a sofa bed in there. There is also a full bathroom upstairs which has an electric shower. The kitchen is fully kitted out with an American style fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser, integrated split oven with built in microwave, induction hob, 4 piece toaster, kettle, etc. etc. There is even a slow cooker to allow you to get dinner cooking whilst you are out exploring the countryside!

Gästers tillgång
You will have access to the entire house and all that it contains. We have endured the 'joy' of travelling with small children and so have tried to limit the amount of stuff you'll need to bring with you. As well as necessities such as a high chair, potty, a toilet seat and step, a McClaren single buggy and a Phil and Ted's double buggy, a full size cot bed as well as a travel cot, babies bumbo floor seat, kids dishes and cutlery etc. we've added some nice to haves such a selection of kids toys, DVD's and even a carrier to allow you to explore the amazing countryside.

Adults are well catered for too however! The house is fully kitted out for all you should need for a week or twos stay, let a lone a couple of nights. The kitchen has all of the mod cons you would want and there are washing and drying facilities in the downstairs utility room as well as a couple of clothes lines. There are two TV's to allow you to satisfy different demands, one has a built in DVD the other has a seperate player and we have left a really large selection of films and comedy DVD's to suit all tastes. It also has a Sky dish and 2 points for Sky boxes. If you have a Sky box and card at home, feel free to bring it/them with you and plug them in and you'll get the same service as at home, that's what we do. For clarity, there is no Sky box in the lodge, it is set up for you to bring your own and plug it in should you wish.

If music is more your thing, there is a selection of 100+ CD's, but don't get too excited unless you are an 80's or 90's fan! There is a small hi-fi/CD player but also a more modern music system which allows you to play music off your phone as well as incorporating a DAB radio and CD player/stereo too. The TV's also have Free/Soar View and so there are Radio stations on there to. Finally, there is a telescope to allow you star gaze or look further along the Swilly or across to Inishowen.

Andra saker att notera
There is an awful lot of car parking space outside the door of the lodge and the property is surrounded by fencing and gated so you should feel very safe to let little ones or dogs wonder around a bit. Most of all, we stayed in the lodge for quite some time ourselves, so have tried to make it feel like a home from home, we hope you agree.

Rathmullan, County Donegal, Irland

Rathmullan is a beautiful seaside spot in the far North of the country. Co. Donegal is famous for its beaches and you can view and access both Kinnegar and Rathmullan beach from the lodge. The house is 1 mile North of Rathmullan village and slightly closer to Rathmullan House Hotel. It is also the closest place to rent for Drumhalla house which is a 2 minute walk or maybe 5 minutes at the end of the night!

For some reason, we can't get our Guidebook to display on our listing properly but key things to note would be:
Shops - The closest shop is in Rathmullan village, the local supermarket has all essentials and can provide most things you'd want. There is also a Post Office and Pharmacy in the village.
However, there is a superb supermarket in Ramelton (10-15m drive) called Whorskeys which has almost anything you would need as it includes a diner, deli, bakery, ATM etc. Also try the butchers in the village to as its very good
Letterkenny is 20-25 mins drive away and has everything you could want inc. a Tesco, 2 x Aldi, 2x Lidl, M&S, Dunnes, Penneys, Homebase, Halfords, Argos, etc.

Food - we've two young kids old and like the following:
Sarah's on the beach front in Port Salon (10 miles North of the Lodge) is a great spot and also serves some good food, very family friendly and a nice lunch and dinner spot
Belle's Kitchen in Rathmullan is a real treat for the family, its a cafe that our kids love, especially the pancakes. Next door is the Salt 'n' Batter take away which splits opinion in our house but is an option for fast food or fish and chip supper.
The tap house at the Rathmullan hotel (1 mile from the Lodge) does some excellent pizzas with beer from the local Kinnegar brewery. Not cheap and a tad pretentious for some people's taste but no doubting how tasty the pizzas are! The main hotel restaurant is also popular with visitors though not many locals are there.....

Things to do/Places to See - Just a few miles up the road is the amazing blue flag Ballymastocker Beach which is simply stunning. Before you get there you will pass Otway golf course, one of the oldest 9 holes courses in the world and just past Ballymastocker is Port Salon golf course, a real links test and a gem of a course!

Slightly further field but within an hours drive is the beautiful Fanad Head lighthouse where you will really see the power of the Atlantic. You must try to find time to visit Ards Forest Park. As well as several forest walks, there is an amazing and vast beach walk leading to several smaller beaches. The views are incredible, as is the wildlife (we saw seals on our last visit) and when you throw in the picnic tables, really good kids play park and views to die for, it is a great day out.

A little further still is Glenveigh National Park which is another trip well worth making and will easily fill a day.

Jill's family are all from this area of Donegal and she is immensely proud of its beaches, scenery and general friendliness/welcome. We bought Lady Margaret's House and Lodge to retain our children's link to the area and whilst we currently live in Manchester, we are already counting down the days til we can retire to the house. In the meantime, we spend all of our holidays there and would love to have others share and experience what we both believe is one of the most beautiful spots you'll find.
