About Etta Halliday

Belfast born and bred and currently living in another small fishing village with lots of history in Co Down. I love the rugged Co Antrim coastline just as much - particularly the great first gasp of 'north coast' sea air every visit - wonderfully restorative!

Etta Halliday purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Etta Halliday chose County Antrim

It's walking distance to the places I love most - Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle. I'm a 'Chronicles of Narnia' fan and if this landscape could inspire CS Lewis, it's inspirational for this writer too.

What makes this cottage unique

It's a home from home - for me, my family and it seems our guests love it just as much. I love that our little cluster of homes is surrounded by fields and hedgerows yet walk for just a handful of minutes and you're at the restaurants and stores in the village. Perfectly peaceful and perfectly positioned.

The place to stay in Bushmills

  • 5 of 5
We have visited Eagry Cotage every even-numbered year since 2008 (four visits) and each time is just like the rest - well maintained, spottless upon check-in, great communication with the owner and the cottage is exactly as described in writing and photos. Since there are four separate beds in the cottage, it works well for our purpose - a 4 man golfing trip. Bushmills is within 20 miles of many excellent golf courses and is close to restaurants, pubs and the Northern Ireland tourist destinations. Eagry Cottage is a "must consider" property for your visit to NI.

Owner's Response: It's always a pleasure to have you gents stay with us. Thanks for the lovely review Mark and I'm glad the 'soft Irish weather' wasn't too much of an issue this year! I wonder if anyone's counted the golf courses within easy reach of us? Look forward to welcoming you again sometime - maybe around the time of the British Open? Thanks again for your business.

No hesitation in recommending this for a holiday.

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely week we had here (2 adults & 2 older teenagers). The property was in a good location for walking into the village, was spacious, very clean and comfortable and had all the little extras that made it a 'home from home'. We enjoyed walking the couple of miles to the Giant's Causeway alongside the railway and then back via the beach, a day in Belfast, a day in Derry and pottering around the coast with its beautiful beaches. Would thoroughly recommend the property.

A spick and span cottage in Bushmills

  • 5 of 5
Eagry Cottage is a spick and span, neat and clean, house in Bushmills. We had a very comfortable stay with everything we needed, and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. Etta, the landlady, was easy to communicate with and was very helpful in setting up our stay.

Wonderful stay in a magnificient scenery

  • 5 of 5
Our stay (2 adults + our 4 year old son) was just as good as we could have hoped for. We felt at home as soon as we stepped through the door, finding Ettas little presents for dinner as well as the fireplace ready to kindle. The house was immaculately clean and very well equipped, the supermarket and the Bushmills distillery 5 minutes away, the town centry only 5 minutes further - the perfect place to start our daily trips (Giant´s Causeway - on foot and by train-, Dunluce castle, Bushmills distillery, The Hedges, Carrick-a-rede-bridge, White rock beach, Derry/Londonderry, Glenariff Forest, Portrush, Mussenden Temple).
We had a wonderful time and can highly recommend house and area.
Thanks again Etta!!!

PS: The scones in the "Bushmills Inn" are absolutely spectacular. And don´t miss the pub "The Quays" in Portrush - the staff is very nice and the rumpsteak melts in your mouth...

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Rainer and I'm glad you had a good visit with us. Thanks too for the notes about places to go and things to do - even with a small child! You've introduced a new eatery to me too and I'll have to pay The Quays a visit.

Look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back someday!

Great spot just outside Bushmills

  • 5 of 5
This was a very nice home located within walking distance to Bushmills - both the town and the Distillery. Well kept in a nice complex of similar homes.

Booking: This was made very easy via e-mail conversations, availability discussions, review of the terms and conditions and payment through VRBO.

Communication: During the time leading up to our trip we received several e-mails with instructions, suggestions about what to do, helpful hints about the property and particulars about the surrounding area.

Day of Arrival: We received a text with instructions for entry and found the home warm, clean and just what we needed. The owner left some food for us to nibble on upon our arrival which was appreciated after a long drive from Dublin.

During our stay: The house is well situated for traveling to many of the sites in Northern Ireland. We saw the Distillery, the town of Bushmills, the town of Portrush, Giant's Causeway, the Dark Hedges, Dunluce Castle, the Rope Bridge and many other sites during our time there. Finn MacCools is a recommended local pub that we enjoyed and the Hip Chip was a great place to get Fish n Chips. There is a local grocer as well that can provide all the staples you need for the stay.

Most of the time we spent in the house, we were asleep so there were amenities like the fireplace and the entertainment center that we did not take advantage of. All in all it suited our needs extremely well, and we would highly recommend it!

Well appointed and very clean holiday home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Ettas house for five days. It is very well appointed and very clean. It is a good starting point to discover Giants Causeway and the surrounding coastline. We even did a hiking trip to Giants Causeway starting directly at the holiday home. There is a footpath along the Heritage Railway passing a beautiful beach leading directly to Giants Causeway.
Another plus is that it is so close to Bushmills distillery. So you can take a tour there and enjoy a sample of the whiskeys without the need to drive afterwards.
We can really recommend this holiday home to everybody who wants to discover the north of Ireland.

Owner's Response: We're really glad to hear you'd such a good time Jorg - and glad you enjoyed the walk to the Giant's Causeway. For just a three mile trip, it goes through some beautiful countryside!

Thank you so much for the lovely review and hopefully we'll get to welcome you back again - even if it's just for another trip across the road to the whiskey testing!

Bushmills is just one hour from Belfast International airport, yet it's another world. We're right at the heart of the stunning Causeway Coastal Route - the essential Irish journey. With nine breathtaking Glens of Antrim to cycle, walk or drive, Eagry Cottage is less than a handful of miles from the main attractions: it's just 2 miles to the Giant's Causeway (World Heritage Site), Portballintrae beach, Dunluce Castle, Royal Portrush Golf Course, great surfing, and we're right on the doorstep of the famous Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery - 'legally' making whiskey since 1608!

There are great restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and craft nooks just an easy, short stroll away as well as seaside towns, fishing villages, National Trust properties and tiny, peaceful harbors to visit.

Pony trekking, the Old Llammas Fair in Ballycastle (August), the North West 200 road race (motorbikes) and Bird Sanctuary on Rathlin Island are all within easy reach of the house.

Golf: Links golf is the game played on a course designed by mother nature with as many humps and bumps as you like with a view unequalled for it's beauty! At Eagry Cottage, we love to boast one of the word's top links courses almost on our doorstep. Royal Portrush - just 3 miles away and home to the 2012 Irish Open! ('Home' to Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell - GMac, Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington - if you have to ask.... you're not a golfer!)

The Royal County Down Course is easily within driving distance too, though by the time you've tested your skills on the marvellous Portstewart and Castlerock courses as well, we think you'll have enough travellers tales to tell of the game at it's best, along one of the world's most spectacular coastlines.

All courses have specific information on their respective websites - easy enough to find on the web.
