Ramelton is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after destinations in County Donegal. The town’s reputation as an artisan food destination is on the rise. Here you will find gourmet coffee and foodstuffs, traditional fish and chips, pizza, tapas and fine dining all within a short walk of the property. Ramelton is also home to some of Donegal’s most famed bars with live music ranging from traditional to rock, gypsy jazz and ukulele sessions.
Situated on the banks of the River Lennon where the river converges with Lough Swilly, relics of the town’s colourful history are everywhere.
At the top end of Castle Street is Crammond House, birthplace of Dave Gallaher, the first Captain of the All Blacks Rugby team to tour Britain and Ireland in 1905. At the lower end of the street is the Town Hall where Cassandra Jane Hill, grand-niece of Jane Austen performed an Irish song at its official opening in 1879.
Despite its small population (currently approximately 1200) Ramelton has always punched above its weight when it comes to making an impact. The town also lays proud claim to a king’s private nurse, a banker and one of America’s earliest billionaires, the founder of the Presbyterian church in America, a hatter whose creation saved the life of a US president and most recently and proudest of all, a Nobel prize winner who is celebrated with a bronze sculpture in Gamble Square.
Ramelton’s origins date to a 15th century castle and stronghold of the O’Donnell clan situated, the rubble of which probably formed the foundations of the 19th century warehouses on the quay. Once dubbed the ‘Holy City’ because of its seven churches, the town’s glory days of the past centred around a thriving linen industry, with ships trading regularly with Britain, New York and Kingston, Jamaica.
Today Ramelton is a mecca for creative people and with two great primary schools and host of sporting and other after-school activities, is an idyllic place for young families.
The Town Hall, founded to provide a place of entertainment and public assembly for all denominations equally, continues that ethos today. The building hosts a weekly country market and is also the setting for the annual pantomime which has been running for over 50 years, bringing together all ages on stage for a show that epitomises the town’s most valuable asset, a true community spirit.
