About Glenn or Jacqueline

My name is Glenn and I own Drumlin Lane, which I run with the help of my sister Jacqueline, mother Rebecca, and father Jim.

I grew up about 300 metres from Drumlin Lane on the family farm, and attended school in Lisburn before studying in Scotland, Belfast and Vancouver.

Currently, I work as a Good Relations Officer, helping to build relationships between Communities in Northern Ireland.

In my spare time, I love travelling, Bikram Yoga, short mat indoor bowls and bouncing on the Trampoline at Drumlin Lane.

Glenn or Jacqueline purchased this house in 2011

Why Glenn or Jacqueline chose Northern Ireland

I came up with the idea of building holiday accommodation on family land about 6-7 years ago, I then got to work, built and finally opened Drumlin Lane for business in September 2012. I remember as a child sitting in the tractor with my dad as he cut silage on the site of Drumlin Lane, so the land itself has special significance to me.

The site itself seemed an obvious place to build because of the stunning views. The design of the houses was always meant to ensure environmental sustainability coupled with comfort. Solar panels, PV panels, rainwater harvesting, heat recovery systems, air source heat pump, triple glazing and high levels of airtightness make Drumlin Lane's demand on energy very low.

What makes this house unique

We have a 12' trampoline sunken in the ground at the front of the house. Not only is it great of bouncing on and super safe, but when the sun shines it is the warmest most comfortable place to lie down that you could imagine. Whenever guests are having a BBQ in summer months the trampoline is often the focal area for the whole family.

Amazing Stay !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Stay was wonderful, Rebecca looked after us and couldn't have been kinder.

The place was very clean and well kept. We had everything we needed for the week.

The location was perfect, we were close enough to Dublin to go for a day trip, Belfast, the Giant's Causeway etc...

The place looks just like the pictures !

We had excellent customer service from the time we booked, months ago, until the day we left. Actually the day after we left because we received a kind email when we got back home thanking us for our stay.

Jacquline answered all our emails we had prior to our stay and was very helpful in making our trip a success.

We went to two local pubs in Hillsborough during our stay the Hillside and the Plough In both were fantastic ! The only downfall was how far we were from the pubs.. even though they were only about 2km away they were not within walking distance.

There was 6 adults staying and we all had plenty of space and never felt like we were crowded.

We would all definitely stay here again if we came back to Ireland !

( We traveled from Canada)

Drumlin Lane is located a few miles from the historic village of Hillsborough, which includes the official residence of the Queen in Northern Ireland, it's own forest and lake, and some of the finest pubs and restaurants in the country including The Plough, Hillside and Parson's Nose. We have idyllic views over-looking Slieve Croob and on a clear day the Mountains of Mourne.

Another 3-4 miles will take you to the City of Lisburn, with it's own Leisureplex, gymnastics centre, swimming pool, shopping, and historical sites and activities.

We are only a 30 minute drive from Belfast where you will find the Titanic Visitor Centre and Zoo, and a mere 90 mins from Dublin. Our central location 7 minutes from the main North South - East West arterial roads, makes us an ideal base to explore The Mountains of Mourne in the East, The Giant's Causeway in the North, Lough Neagh and The Fermanagh Lakes to the West, and Carnlough and the Republic of Ireland to the South.
