Sloop JP is unique and very lovely. Beautifully done up, fantastic location, very nice neighbour who brought us eggs, not to mention the goat, ponies and very traditional rooster, who delivered a perfect Cock a Doodle Doo. The lighthouse itself is beautiful and impressive, and the light sweeping across the sea and the land is great to see. The master bedroom is spacious and comfortable; two sofas in the sitting room is nice.Very well equipped kitchen - even sharp knives!. Effective heating (it was colder outside than might be expected). No TV and limited mobile signal, but who needs them whe...more
This property was the high standard you become used to with Irish Landmark Trust. Everything was in working order and the kitchen had every gadget you could ever need for self-catering including a garlic press.
We spent the weekend at Tullymurry house for my mother's birthday. It was really perfect. We sat in the sun in the garden, went for runs in the surrounding countryside, made dinner together and made use of the wellness centre. Fantastic setting!
Great 3 days, no TV, no wifi just reading, eating, relaxing and sleeping. Fantastic views, great Kitchen and amazing rooms. Lovely walks and couldn't recommend to highly
We loved staying at the gate lodge. We were a little nervous prior to our visit as this was our first break from home since lockdown but we need not have worried. This was also our first stay in a Landmark Trust property and we were very impressed with the high standards. The kitchen was very well equipped. We were particularly impressed with the extensive and interesting collection of books. The location was excellent - so convenient for walks around the coast, especially the Causeway. We will definitely be booking with the Landmark Trust again and very possibly returning to Drum Gatelodge: i...more
Lovely quiet area ..... escape from the hustle and bustle. Bring your own books and board games!, Cliff walk is great. No problems with the house, Everything in good working order. Beds very comfortable
A totally different place to stay lovely views around the countryside as far as Scotland and the North of England. Booking was made very easy and Walter was great getting us in and giving a tour of the building. Can not praise the staff and the location enough.
Such an amazing stay in such a lovely place, everything was clean and comfortable and the views over the river are incredible. Such a great location and easy to get to many of the incredible attractions close by!
I found my stay here thoroughly relaxing and because there ended up only being three of us it felt immensely roomy and atmospheric. beats a hotel hands down. By the way, there's a great big kitchen table for eating and playing card games or Ludo around. Nearly every room has a stunning view and I was privileged to experience one stormy day and one sunny day. The effects of the lighthouse beams and the full moon at night across the water is entrancing. The sparkling waters of the sea and lough by Whitehead under the sun with its coloured houses makes you feel you could be abroad. Walks around t...more
When we saw the tower for the first time and drove through the gate for parking into the palace garden, we felt very unique. The spiral staircase with the suitcases was a little bit of a challenge, but then ... The lovingly detailed furnishings in all rooms were outstanding. And also the view from the terrace to the park and the castle, sensational. We would spend the night there again immediately.
We had a great stay at this property. Its a lovely building and was warm and cosy to come back to after a day out walking. Would definitely come back for another stay.
Brilliant holiday stay. We stayed for 5 nights and were delighted with the space, quiet and the history of the building
Ballealy cottage is a real experience. It reveals itself in a clearing at the end of a long bumpy country lane, it's very picturesque and really is like a place from another time. The house itself is lovely and the wildlife was a real highlight of our stay - we had deer in the garden eating the windfall apples, a heron on the stream and grouse on the lane. The bat colony is huge - we estimate a thousand, and we sat out each evening with a glass of wine watching them fly out for the night. That was amazing. The one downside to Ballealy for us was the bat smell upstairs, it was overpowering. L...more
