This property is well laid out and beautifully presented... The building is an interesting creation following the classical farm dwellings of the turn of eighteenth century architecture.

The garden for The Coach House is west facing and completely enclosed. The patio is perfectly situated for the afternoon and evening sun.

About Clem & Jayne FitzGerald

Family home with ponies, dogs and farm cats.

Clem & Jayne FitzGerald purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Why Clem & Jayne FitzGerald chose Magheralin

Location, location , location well this is why we live here. It's an amazing central location for pleasure or business, 30 minutes from the main Airports and Ferry Terminals. Six minutes from the M1 and fast access to all the main road networks South to Newry/Dublin 1.5 hrs, West to Dunganon/Enniskilen 1.5 hours, East to Lisburn/Belfast 0.5 hrs and North to Ballymena/Coleraine 1.5 hrs.

The location is in a wooded area very close to significant sports amenities.The Coach House is quite enough to relax and close enough for work and play. Great all round location.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The 3 arched entrances which are now the guest bedrooms, the rambling main house and simple tree lined grounds give a relaxing informal feeling in keeping with country living. The frog pond (fenced) is a children's dream away from the play station and xbox.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for 10 days and enjoyed it very much.

This charming newer home has an open concept kitchen, dining and living room, three spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms (one with walk in shower and one with tub) and private parking. Most important of all, it is immaculately clean. The kitchen is well stocked, the furniture is very nice and the beds are comfortable. There is also a lovely back garden to enjoy. It was a perfect home for us during our stay there.

This home is attached to the main house where Jayne and Clem, the owners, live. This came in very handy for us as we lost electricity and heat during Hurricane Ophelia and Clem had it fixed right away. They are a lovely couple who welcomed us, gave great travel recommendations, and made us feel right at home.

It is conveniently located 5 minutes from the lovely village of Moira, 10 minutes from the motorway, 30 minutes from Belfast, and close enough to see all of Northern Ireland.

We very highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone who is looking for a place in Northern Ireland. It was so nice, we would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic place and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Coach House for 6 nights while visiting Northern Ireland. What a warm, welcoming, and comfortable home! Everything was spotlessly clean and every amenity you could desire. The beds were super comfortable as was the living room furniture. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and all in excellent condition.

The owner, Clem, was a wealth of information - advising some interesting places to visit in addition to the usual tourist spots. He even brought over his wife's hiking shoes for my daughter and me to borrow for a wet trip to Marble Arch Caves! We loved being greeted by their little dog, Spider, and cat, Cuddles. The horses on the property are also beautiful. It is such a quiet, peaceful place.

The location is perfect for exploring all of Northern Ireland. It is an easy drive to Giant's Causeway, Dark Hedges, Marble Arch Caves, Belfast, Castle Ward, Tollymore Forest, and on and on. We highly recommend this vacation rental - can't say enough good things about it!

Great base for following in the footsteps of St Patrick!

  • 5 of 5

Clem and his family were helpful and welcoming. The Coach House is light and airy with an enjoyable garden area. If you like country living with animals nearby, this is the place for you! Only drawback is only one shower--two nice bathrooms, but only one shower.

Very high standard and roomy accomadation.

  • 5 of 5

Every detail has been considered by our hosts and we had a super base to work from. Don't think I would book a hotel again when there are great places like The Coach House available. A car is necessary although everything you need is only a few minutes away. The Coach House is in the country side and there is even a very good fitness centre only 4 minutes down the road at the local country club. Moira offers a great range of food options, from delis, pub food, award winning butchers, cafes and takeaways to fine dining at an award winning, Michelin listed restaurant.

Outstanding property in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had to travel to Northern Ireland for a family christening and decided to make a bit more of our visit. We chose this charming Coach House property owned and run by Clem and Jayne purely at random. It was located centrally for us and was an excellent find.This beautiful property was just first rate. Set in a very rural area near the picturesque town of Moira, the property had everything that 3 adults could wish for. Clem and Jayne were charming hosts and made us feel very welcome and at home. We got the impression that no request by us would be a problem. The property is very comfortable indeed and in fact the photos on the website perhaps do not do it justice, particularly we felt, with the sitting room/kitchen area, which is really quite spacious! The close proximity to the M1 motorway and the little railway station in Moira (for a trip into Central Belfast) meant that we were able to travel about the area quite easily. We may well be back in that part of Northern Ireland again and if so we will certainly check out the availability of this property. We would recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet and comfortable place for a stay in this part of Northern Ireland.

The 'Coach House' is situated in the most fantastic location to tour Ulster in a series of day trips. You are never more than 1.5 hours from all the main attractions. Locally a few minutes from The 'Coach House' the area supports two historical villages, Moira & Hillsborough. Moira has won many awards for best kept village and is popular with local shoppers. Hillsborough is the official residence for the Head of State, has a castle and attracts people from far and wide to the restaurants and boutique retailers. Hillsborough is host to the hugely attended Oyster festival in September each year. Lough Neagh is the largest fresh water lake in in Ireland and Britian, nature walks start only one junction down the motorway from The 'Coach House'.

If you follow Game of Thrones we can direct you to all the film locations in Ulster.
