Luxury Country House Restaurant in Inishowen, Co. Donegal


Renowned for relaxed restaurant dining, intimate weddings, luxury accommodation and breathtaking views, The Red Door Country House is nestled on a 4 acre site overlooking Lough Swilly in Inishowen, Co. Donegal in the North West of Ireland.

Situated between Derry and Buncrana, along the Wild Atlantic Way, the country house is easily accessible by car.

Built in 1789, the tradition of a country house is today cleverly combined with contemporary luxury and style. Beyond the landscaped surroundings are vegetable and herb gardens that provide the restaurant with delicious fresh ingredients.

The Red Door Country House stands proudly on the banks of Lough Swilly in Inishowen, Co. Donegal. This sea inlet was made famous by the hymn (Amazing Grace) penned in the 1700’s by John Newton. Newton was a slave ship captain who had a spiritual epiphany after finding refuge from an Atlantic storm in Lough Swilly and later became a Church of England clergyman.
