Cosy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This was out second stay at Iona Cottage. It is very comfortable and with the wood burner on, it is indeed very warm and cosy - even in February. The dogs loved it especially as it is so close to Downhill beach which is just an amazing place.

Wonderful cottage and great accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

Met promptly by the owner who showed us around and then led us into town to get some food and drink from the only shop open. A little far from sights and shopping for a short stay but we loved it! We would go again for a longer stay.

Fabulous little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful cottage that is full of charm. It was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Really enjoyed all aspects of our weekend and we had small children so the garden was great for playing in. Views fab and a brilliant location for touring. Would highly recommend a visit.

The Beautiful and majestic North Coast Of Northern Ireland is on your doorstep. Famous for our golf courses, restaurants, stunning beaches and breathtaking scenery. The North Coast area is truly wonderful for golf, it offers both links courses to delightful parkland.

Surfing is the ideal sport for Irish weather and the North Coast is a great area for all watersports. With several Award-winning Blue Flag beaches the surf on the North Coast of Ireland is widely reported to be some of the best in the world. Surfers can expect swell in excess of 18ft in the winter and up to around 8ft in the summer. Within Northern Ireland you will find some of the most stunning beaches in Europe. The natural formation of the coastline provide long stretches of golden sand and impressive sand dunes. Several of our beaches have been awarded with the prestigious Blue Flag award. Activities on local beaches include surfing, body boarding, sea kayaking, surf kayaking, wind surfing, sub aqua and sea angling. Every region has it must see attractions and the North coast have so many on offer, your family will never run out of things to do. With Dunluce Castle, Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, Mussenden Temple and Bushmills Distillery to visit you will have the perfect excuse to come back.

There are lots of opportunities for Angling on the North Coast with a local Salmon fishery called Moorbrook Lodge only a minutes drive away. Walking is a popular activity with many North Coast visitors. Some wish to simply take a gentle stroll along the resorts seafronts; others prefer a brisk walk along the beach as stimulating exercise surrounded by fresh air and fantastic scenery. Many people like to walk the coastal routes or venture inland to the hills.
