Explore the highlights of the north coast:

The bustling seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart are within a 25-minute drive of the barn, with Portballintrae, Ballycastle and County Donegal all within reach.

Golfers will be spoilt for choice, with world class golf courses including Royal Portrush, Portstewart, Castlerock and Ballycastle all within reach.

Further afield the capital city of Belfast is just over an hour away, making visits to the many theatres and award-winning restaurants, the Titanic Museum, W5 and the Ulster Museum all achievable.

Contemporary cottage in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 1 Barn Lane. The home was designed and decorated in a stunning yet welcoming fashion.

The location was perfect for touring, Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-rede bridge, Glenveagh National Park Doungal, Royal Portrush, Glenarrif Forest Park and Bushmills.

The house was very clean, and well supplied with nice towels, your typical kitchen appliances and everything you would need for a comfortable stay.

We were also greeted with a plate of the richest brownies a very welcome touch after a long drive.

Thank you –

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful and is in a gorgeous setting. We used this as a home-base for travelling around Northern Ireland and it worked perfectly. The home was very nicely furnished, and our stay was very enjoyable.

Stunning property and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous property for 7 nights to celebrate our daughters 40th birthday, what a stunning property it was. Kim and her family were there to greet us and had baked a rocky road cake for us which was a lovely touch. Everything you needed was catered for, the home was clean and well maintained the description of the home was accurate as were the photos. It was a perfect location to come back to after a day's sightseeing, and close to some great places to explore. We all had a fabulous time there and were sad when we had to leave. I would have no hesitation to recommend this home to anybody. It also had lots of information and recommendations as to what you can do and see around the area.
