Stay with an ocean view

Boasting the most picturesque sea-views that Northern Ireland has to offer, we truly are in a prime location by the bay.  Wake up in the morning and draw back the curtains and be greeted with Rathlin Island in the distance, a little further you will see the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland. Watch the morning waves crashing in on the shore while you enjoy your morning coffee – there really is no better way to start your day

“Stylish decor and rooms furnished to a modern standard. We chose to stay in one of the Executive Rooms and our expectations were exceeded on every level”

“A splendid surprise was walking into the room and the discovery of being able to enjoy the views out to the island and Fairhead. A large glass of wine in hand being able to relax just looking out the window was just perfect. Super comfy mattress made for an uninterrupted nights rest”

A break away for all the Family

The beach house offers extra privacy with its own entrance, accessible by fob key allowing you to come and go at your own leisure. Storage facilities available for sports equipment including bikes, golf clubs (even big enough for the kayaks and surfboards)

“the room had everything a family of five could need. It had a huge double bed in the main room, as well as a desk/dressing table. There was a wardrobe, kettle with all your tea and coffee requirements. There were two side tables, plug sockets with USB ports [love those] and a good-sized TV.

The second bedroom had three single beds, one was a high loft bunk [which my teenager happily claimed] The bathroom was just off the main room and it was nice and spacious too. [The shower, which we all later used that evening was amazing] – SuperbusyMum

The beach house is made up of four double or twin rooms and two large family rooms.
