Northern Ireland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Causeway coast hide-a-way, traditional cottage on the North Coast of Ireland

Traditional Irish country cottage hidden on the beautiful causeway coast close to the Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Royal Portrush Golf Club and the Carrick a Rede rope bridge. Secluded and close to miles of beautiful National Trust sea shore walks. Sea Fishing trips where the Irish Sea and the Atlantic meet offer great fun days and fresh water salmon fishing on the Bush river are available by arrangement. Visit Rathlin island to see one of the most important sea bird nesting areas in western Europe. Rent fast sea going RIBS in Ballycastle to tour this magnificent coastline. See the Giants Causeway from the sea or visit Robert the Bruce's cave on Rathlin the choices are endless. From your base in Ballintoy self catering will be a pleasure, fresh fish off the small boats fishing these waters and good resturants in abundance. Fine wines may be ordered in advance and be ready for you when you arrive at your self catering cottage. Please request details when you book.

little gem

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in the cottage twice with my parents (from France) and daughter. It is a lovely little cottage - tiny but incredibly well organised (it makes you consider at all that badly used space at home!)- and the area is fantastic. We never tire of it. The cottage is particularly well situated because there is a lot to do around it with or without a car: there’s the harbour below .. and its coffee shop, the beach, the lovely walk to whitepark bay, to the rope bridge, it’s handy to the shop and pubs in the village, etc.

There is a lovely track along the cliffs that loops around. The cottage is just on the way and it makes for a very nice evening stroll.

Unfortunately this year every walk was punctuated by a shower.. which gave us magnificent rainbows (to my daughter's delight) but didn't allow us to live outside as much as we had last September (when we had been able to eat outside most days -lovely view of the white church, sea, sheep island and Rathlin from the table outside on the front lawn).

So lovely place... I would highly recommend it as long as nobody books when I want to go : )

Rustic and cosy

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us, it was my our first romantic break away. Cosy fire, by the sea, amazing walks and we were so lucky with the weather too, 5 days of sunshine in March. The locals so friendly and helpful, We will return again when we get the chance. Maggie and Darren, London

Wee gem on North Coast

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cosy little cottage. Great home base to return to after exploring castles, walking beaches, playing golf, hiking Rathlin Island, crossing the rope bridge. All was as described, quiet and beautiful. Recommend trying the Red Door cafe and walking from Ballintoy harbor to White Park Bay beach. If you're in need of rain gear, got to Port Stewart there's a handy Regatta outlet there. Didn't meet Clem and Jayne, but they communicated well before and during our stay. Thanks for a wonderful accommodation. Wish we had more time.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is tiny, but it contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sadly, the weather was so good that we did not feel a need to use the fireplace. Clem was very responsive when we had a minor problem with the front door, and it was fixed the next day. Ballintoy Harbor is beautiful, and the starting point for a wonderful walk around White Park Bay. Watch out for high tide at the point though. We found the nearby Red Door very good for breakfast, and the Fullerton Arms provided a fine dinner in the pub. Our stay was perfect in every way.

Nous avons passé une semaine dans ce petit cottage superbement aménagé et fonctionnel. Nous avons profité d'un temps magnifique pour visiter et randonner le long de la côte et prendre un bon bol d'oxygène. Comme les 2 autres cottages n'étaient pas occupés il y avait un calme absolu et nous avons passé de bonnes nuits!

Les balades sont nombreuses, les plages magnifiques, les villages typiques la Guiness!!! Une excellente adresse dans une région extraordinaire

The Causeway coast is rich with natural beauty and good places to eat. Only a few minutes away from your traditional Irish cottage you find such wonders as the Giants Causeway, Whitepark Bay, Torr Head, Rathlin Island,

The White Rocks Portrush and the Bush river that feeds the famous Busmills Irish Whisky Distillery. Great resturants and traditional pub fare helps to replace the calories lost on the beautiful coast walks. The National Trust has protected many miles of beautiful walks along beaches that join cliff tops to headlands from where you can watch the flow and ebb of the great tides that sweep in an out of the Irish sea from the North Atlantic. Fishing is rich as is the sea bird life on Rathlin, reached by regular daily ferry crossings or with fast RIBs that offer tours of the area. Some of Ireland's most famous golf clubs such as The Royal Portrush are only a few minutes away from your base in Ballintoy. To the south the majestic 7 Glens of Antrim are only half an hour away.

Other Activities: coastal sea trips, nature trails.

Golf: Ballintoy is located between the world renowned Royal Portrush and Ballycastle Golf Club. The beautiful Bushfoot Golf Club is a few minutes drive. All three clubs boast North Atlantic beach fronts. There are some 7 Golf Clubs in the area.
