This property is everything one could ask for when traveling through Northern Ireland. The views are spectacular. The green house is so inviting and we almost spent the night because of the views of the ocean and the landscape and the sheep :)

The owner was so helpful and easy to get in touch with. I have to say this was our family's favorite stop during our stay in Ireland. We will return to this cottage on our next visit and spend even more time exploring the amazing Antrim Coast.

Outstanding VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a wonderful Christmas in Lisa and Turlough’s cottage. The setting is beautiful, the cottage is well equipped, warm and cozy. Fantastic hikes, right out the front door - a perfect base for exploring the Causeway Coast and area. Stayed 9 days and still ran out of time - there is so much to do in this area. The waterfront location is unbeatable!

Lisa and Turlough are superb hosts, providing the thoughtful extras that make for great memories.

Thank You!

Lovely cosy cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few days early November with our daughters aged 4 and 6 and had a wonderful time. The location is amazing, set right in Ballintoy harbour, with the Causeway Way right on your doorstep for great walks and lots of exploring for children. The cottage had everything we could possibly need and is a great base to visit so many local landmarks. A lovely place to cosy up and light the fire when settled in for the night. Would definitely recommend this place.

Absolutely Perfect for our Family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an absolutely amazing week-long stay! The house is in a beautiful location, to say the least. The kitchen was very well stocked, the beds were comfortable (all rooms had extra blankets and pillows available), the bathroom was large with unending hot water and plenty of towels. The washer and dryer were very handy for our week-long stay. The owner, Turlough, is very kind, helpful, and quick to respond to any questions. Our children (9yr, 9yr, 8yr) said this was their favorite VRBO ever! They loved the bunk beds, upstairs playroom, and all the places there were to explore right out the door!

Amazing beachside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at O Rourkes Cottage. It is well equipped with everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. The sunroom is such a bonus. Lovely to sit up there with a book and watch the sea. The location could not be more perfect with amazing views and walks straight from the door. We had lovely peat fires in the evening and were very spoilt with great weather for our stay. Very cosy and quiet. Lisa and Turlough were very generous hosts. Thank you so much. It was much appreciated. We will be back.
