    Isobel was great though when i phoned her to see if she could do anything for me, or my son and i would have had to travel home again. She got men in to build a temporary one which done the job. Other than that we had an enjoyable time.

About the location


Letterkenny 8 miles.

The sleepy heritage town of Ramelton, County Donegal, sits at the start of the Fanad Peninsula, where the River Lennon joins Lough Swilly. Cut into a wooded valley, Ramelton dates back to the 17th century and the distinctive architecture of the warehouse buildings on the quays dominate the village. Ramelton has a colourful history as one of Donegal’s most important ports, with ships arriving from the Carribbean in the 1800s to export linen made in the village. Though quieter nowadays, an abundance of welcoming local shops and pubs still welcome visitors, and there are ample opportunities for fishermen and golfers in the region. The picturesque Fanad Head is just a short distance away, as are beaches at Rathmullan and Dunfanaghy.
