Exactly what we were hoping for: a quiet and peaceful place by the sea to relax. Just fantastic, we will come back one day.
Fantastic stay at JP Sloop. The cottage is lovely is with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location is amazing - watching the light from the lighthouse while relaxing was magical. Being woken by the rooster and visited by Daisy the goat all added to the experience.
We had a fantastic weekend staying in the beautiful and charming Tullymurry house. As a group of 6 we easily fitted in the space, which was extremely comfortable and warm in winter. The house is beautifully restored and full of character and history. The grounds are also lovely, in particular the beautiful big trees along the avenue (especially the magnificant oak). Lorraine met us on arrival and was extremely accommodating and helpful. We had some nice walks locally ("around the block") but also in the Mournes and on the beach near Newcastle. We hope to come back again.
We had a fantastic time. Views of the landscape and sea were breathtaking. Lovely walks. Delightful
Needs some TLC, repainting needed, kitchen upgrade, needs fire grate, coal bucket. Nice views but spooky vibes. Comfy beds. TV could be good as nothing nearby for night time entertainment, besides board games. Could be a absolutely fabulous spot if more investment was put in.
This is our 5th time at Drum Lodge which says if all. We will be back again in the summer all being well. Highly recommend this place to get away from it all and relax.
It’s always a special privilege and real treat to stay at an Irish Landmark Trust property and Helen’s Tower is no exception. Walter is a gentleman and great to deal with. The Tower is a special experience I couldn’t recommend highly enough.
What a delightful week we had in the Old Corn Mill! We loved the Mill, everything we needed was provided for (even if a few more mugs would be welcome). Very comfortable. Watching and listening to the river was a real pleasure. A heron came everyday to his favourite fishing place I'm not sure he was very successful though. Bushmills was The place to stay. Just a short walk away from the shops, the restaurants and the distillery of course. Thanks to Mary and her very good advice, we discovered the railway path which led us to the Giant's Causeway, great walk. Many places to see and visit near B...more
Amazing property which keeps true with its history. The books are older than any person alive, plus the house has maintained all its original features. The views looking out are spectacular. Who needs televisions and wifi! Highly recommended for both families and friends.
My partner and I loved our stay. We loved the building, the furnishings, and access to the grounds. Barican is a very unique property and we felt like we had our own miniature castle to ourselves. Staying there was much more than just accommodations, it was an experience. "Magical" is the word I would use to describe it. Our property manager Alison was extremely helpful as well.
A few items to note: this property does have a TV, no shower and the estate spa no longer exists. We were fine with this. We very much appreciated the hospitality of the house manager particularly in her having the lodge ready for our arrival which was very welcoming. The floor heat was very much enjoyed. The cookware, dinnerware and glassware were all of fine quality and enjoyed for all our meals. Walks around the estate were beautiful and wild deer was sighted. We had everything we needed and wanted. It was a genuine pleasure and memorable. We would love to return again.
Perfect location and base to tour the many gems of the Antrim coastline. Look forward to returning in 2020
Very beautiful place. I enjoyed the peace and quiet. No mobile phone signal which is a shame. If there was an emergency we could not be contacted. Shame there was no television.
