“Fabulous Donegal retreat”

Spent wonderful long weekend at Fort Royal with family & friends. It has an idyllic, tranquil setting just beyond Rathmullan village. The setting is truly breath-taking, elevated lawns & woodland looking out over Lough Swilly to the mountains of Inishowen.
There are endless possibilities for good old-fashioned family fun to be had. We played rounders on the central green, revived ourselves with G&Ts on the patio, then strolled through the dunes onto the beach.
The village of Rathmullan is about 1/2 mile along the beach and is another jewel in the Donegal crown. Lovely pubs, cafes and quirky shops. We all found the locals very friendly and accommodating, even the fishermen on the pier after our boys spent a few hours jumping off it!
Following a BBQ on the patio, we returned to the village for live music as part of the Rathmullan festival. There was a great atmosphere and a real community spirit.
Loughview House is a modern build and has been newly furnished to a very high standard. It is comfortable and spacious with wonderful views over the grounds and lough.
The space and relaxed atmosphere left us all with a sense of calm, which made it feel more like a week away from home than a long weekend. We look forward to our return and would highly recommend to all.

“Idyllic location, great accommodation”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed here with a group of friends for an idyllic weekend away. You can't beat the location - direct access to the beach, fantastic views over the estuary, and wonderful grounds.

The accommodation was excellent - really up to date with good quality furnishings and really light and airy. A great place to spend a weekend or a week.

“Luxurious Modern Living in Timeless Surroundings”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed at Loughview House with a group of friends and their children. The accommodation was luxurious. Whether spending time in the spacious kitchen, with a glass of wine, chatting with friends or slouching in an opulent leather sofa looking through mature trees at Lough Swilley - the choice was yours. Some of our party went for a twilight stroll along the beach, while the others spectated at a teenage tennis match. The weather was changeable but there was plenty to do. The little ones could run around in a traffic free area or make sandcastle a on the beach, as the water lapped on the shore, while the older ones climbed trees or just "explored". Perfect for artist or writer retreat. I'll be back (without kids!) next time for more.
