We had a three night stay at Rathlena in May and everything was just perfect. The rooms are spotlessly clean with very good quality furniture and fittings. Breakfast was varied and excellent choice even for quests on a special diet. We will defiantly return.

Sea views peace and tranquility, yet minutes walk to town make Rathlena a real find. In recent years extensive refurbishment has ensured comfort and elegance throughout. All bedrooms enjoy private ...More balconies taking advantage of the spectacular sea view outlook, superb en-suites and all thee added extras one comes to expect from a four star establishment. We provide breakfast of the highest quality and standard. Rathlena is situated in its own grounds providing safe off round parking. Less
