This is a stunning new 5 bedroom house set in private mature grounds with exquisite views of the sea, golf course, Rathlin Island and Glenshesk. There is a main bathroom, 2 ensuite bathrooms and downstairs toilet. There is a fabulous sunroom with vaulted church style mahogany ceiling. Family and dining areas are open plan providing a wonderful space with double doors leading to the kitchen.

The exterior is lit by floodlights and recessed ground lighting forming an arc. There is a large fully landscaped garden area with space for helicopter landing. The property benefits from double glazing, a fully monitored ADT security alarm system, a beam vacuum system, a luxury hand made kitchen with granite work surfaces and American style fridge-freezer. Outside there is a double detached garage with room for boat storage.

Lots of walking (beach, forest, hill), cycling, mountain biking, horse-riding, jet-skiing, kiting, water-skiing, swimming and of course - golf! Several nearby courses (Ballycastle, Royal Portrush, Portstewart, Bushfoot, Cushendall to name but a few). A dozen tennis courts (grass and cement), fishing, bowls, and badminton all available locally. Arts and crafts a speciality.

Carrck-a-Rede rope bridge and world heritage site of Giant's Causeway 20 minutes away. Bushmills Distillery 15 minutes. Several top quality restaurants are near to hand and traditional Irish music sessions can be enjoyed over a pint of Guinness in one of the nearby pubs. All your shopping needs are at your doorstep.

Island Hopping!: Enjoy a high speed boat trip across to nearby Rathlin Island and visit the seals in their natural habitat or the seabirds at the RSPB Bird Sanctuary. Also available - whale watching! Go a little further to the Scottish Isles and enjoy tours of the distilleries of Islay. Visit for the day or spend the night!

Beaches: The local area boasts several stunning award winning beaches with miles of golden sands. There is of course Ballycastle beach, Cushendall, Cushendun, Portrush, Portstewart, Portballintrae and Whitepark Bay. These are child friendly and safe for swimming from.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a truly spectacular holiday home! We had a wonderful time in gorgeous Ballycastle, with both adults and children promising to return! The house is exquisite, meeting all the needs of our family and the surrounding area is full of activities and surprises. We have travelled across the globe but feel that the scenery and hospitality in this gem of a place is unrivalled!

A fantastic holiday home in beautiful Ballycastle

  • 5 of 5

A really comfortable and well equipped house a short walk from Ballycastle. We were a large group of extended family and there was plenty of space for everyone. We had a wonderful week and I would definitely recommend this house.

Ballycastle is a great place to base yourself to explore the north coast. It is a lovely unspoilt town with a real sense of character great shops, bars and restaurants.

Clean, modern, very well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the house there were 10 of us and the house still felt like it had plenty of room. It is a great base for exploring the area from the Glens right round to Portrush and we even went on a trip to Rathlin Island for the day, definitely a must. Ballycastle is an easy walk from the house with a good kids playground at the sea front.

On one occasion we needed to speak to the owner and he was easily reachable. It's a great place I definitely recommend it.

Thoroughly satisfied and will return asap

  • 5 of 5

It has hard to find a vacation rental that checks all the boxes - location, price, quality, size; etc, but this place did it for us, and then some. It sits up high enough to really get a good view of farmland, cliffs and, most days, Rathlin Island. 10 minute walk downhill takes you to the town, restaurants, bars, shops, the harbor, beach, children's playground, buses; etc. The walk back uphill can be a little bit harder some days, especially if you have already been hiking or walking all day. However, great exercise in fresh air meant we all lost a few pounds whilst we enjoyed the scenery on the way back.

I'm from Northern Ireland (now living and working in Atlanta), and grew up along the North Antrim coast, so I wanted to show my wife and 7 year old daughter the sights and beauty of this area. They fell in love with Ballycastle and really felt totally relaxed staying at the property.

We had family staying with us the first week and some friends during the second week, but it never felt cramped because there are 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus a sun room, living and dining room, big garden for the kids to run around in. The house felt spacious, airy and was always really sunny and bright. The kitchen featured a gas stovetop, big "American" fridge and came with all the coffee machines, toasters, silverware, cups, bowls; etc you'd ever need.

Neighbors were quiet and friendly - my daughter made friends the first day she arrived and played every day with them for the next 2 weeks, so she was really happy.

We took a couple of ferry day trips to Rathlin Island which I highly recommend. Very unique place - book tickets 24 hours in advance though. We also travelled a fair bit along the coast to the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge; etc and really appreciated how easy the drive was to get to those areas. Very short journeys along quiet country roads with spectacular scenery. Great base for anyone coming over on a "Game of Thrones" sightseeing tour as you could easily check out 7 or 8 within 30 miles of this house.

Overall, we loved every second of staying here and can't wait to come back. The owner, Ronan, was very responsive and friendly. 100% trustworthy, which is important to me when making transactions with someone new. Ronan was always available by cell call or a quick text and he really made us feel at home and relaxed. Very happy memories of this house and Ballycastle that will tide us over until we return - hopefully next year.

This is a great house and awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we expected! We had an extended holiday in the North and this was a great home base! The house is very well appointed and we truly felt at “home”.

We were an extended family from Canada and had lots of room in the house. The house is well kept and very comfortable. The view and location are awesome. You can find everything you need in Ballycastle. The owner is very attentive and very quick to respond to any questions or inquires.

We had a gathering of the family clan and this house was perfect for that occasion it had lots of room in the house and yard and our guests had no issue parking.

I would recommend this home and would certainly return if we get another opportunity to visit!

Ballycastle
Car: recommended

Ballycastle is a quiet and peaceful seaside town surrounded by some of Ireland’s most well known tourist attractions. With the Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery and Carrick-a-Rede Rope bridge on one side and the scenic glens on the other, what more could anyone ask for.

Apart from being surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty, Ballycastle is one of the few remaining towns on the North Coast unaffected by commercialism. As a conservation area it has retained much of its original character offers much flair and charm.

The property is only a short stroll from Ballycastle town centre and can be described as a paradise for sports lovers with its well known grass tennis courts, bowling green and superb 18-hole golf course flanked by the River Margy on one side (known for it’s fishing qualities) and picturesque long sandy beach on the other.

Enjoy a scenic boat trip to Rathlin Island or the whiskey distilleries on Islay and marvel at the seals and whales en route!
