I'm not sure about the entrance - if there is a step it's not a big one. Toilets are to the back of the restaurant and all on the level but they may be tight for a wheelchair.

Hi Barbara! We went on a Monday night which was v sunny! So we did have to wait 45 mins (worth it) but every other night we went straight in. I'd book if it's a Sat/Sun :) Enjoy Rathmullan, it's fantastic!
