Access to Rathmullan Marina in County Donegal is fully possible for visitors of all abilities via a gangway landing. The facility was first established in 1995 and has been developed to its current status as a safe marina with all the essential services.
Rathmullan has a long tradition of sailing and marine tourism. The first Rathmullan Regatta took place in 1833. Lough Swilly is a long, sheltered finger of water wedged between Inishowen and Fanad, two wonderfully wild and beautiful peninsulas on Donegal’s northern coast.
Rathmullan is a delightful and historic village on the west shore of Lough Swilly. Lough Swilly is an important site for waterfowl in autumn and winter. The shallow waters provide suitable habitat for grebes and diving duck, while the intertidal flats are used by an excellent diversity of wildfowl and waders. At high tide, the duck and wader species roost on the salt marshes and shorelines, with some species moving to the adjacent pasture and arable fields.
