A stroll around the 7 acres of gardens at Rathmullan House, will leave you in little doubt as to the level of care and attention that has been put into their upkeep over the past 50 years. From the front door you can decide between a stroll to the bottom of the front lawn for a summer picnic, a seat in the tranquillity garden listening to a soothing fountain, or a walk through our Walled Garden admiring the array of seasonal fruits, vegetables and flowers on show.
The Victorian Walled Garden forms the centrepiece of so much that we do here having been lovingly restored by Bob Wheeler and his gardening team. As the name of our restaurant, ‘The Cook & Gardener’ suggests, we try wherever possible to use ingredients in our dinner menu straight from the Walled Garden. On any given day you are likely to bump into a chef or two in the garden, picking ingredients which you will find on your plate later that evening.
At the bottom of our front lawn you will find Batts Walk which will lead you through the woods, along the beach finding all sorts of flora and fauna as you travel.
We are blessed to be situated in an area of extraordinary natural scenery. The hard work that goes into the gardens at Rathmullan House is a testament to our gardening team led by Mr Wheeler and the results are there for all of our guests to enjoy.
