    Travelers rated Fools Haven Thatched Cottage one of FlipKey's best .
    Our great thanks to you all - we are very proud!

    This gem of a thatched cottage is over 250 years old and is situated at the start of the Causeway Coast & Glens Route, opposite the Andrew Jackson Cottage and US Rangers Centre on the shores of Belfast Lough. This quaint Irish Cottage has been sympathetically restored without loosing any of its Old World Charm.

    Fools Haven Thatched Cottage is self catering approved by Northern Ireland Tourist Board and has been awarded 4 stars.

    We are approx one and half miles from historic Carri...
