Really enjoyed our stay, the house was perfect for the four of us. The house was spotless, beautifully maintained and so cosy. We had fabulous scenery and accessible walks. Our host couldn't have been nicer.. There is pretty much no phone signal which is obviously a plus & negative. But for us an option of a wifi connection would have...

This is probably one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in, both in terms of the quality of the decor of the place, but also its stunning and unique location. Just absolutely gorgeous in every way. The manager Pam Stewart was most welcoming and gave us some good tips. It's mid way between Belfast and Giants Causeway -...

This place is such a unique hideaway and perfect for a weekend away from everything. No television and a pretty poor phone signal mean you have to detach from the real world and totally relax. There is a lovely cliff walk that brings you into the nearby town of Whitehead and well worth the walk. The accommodation is perfect, no...

This is a truly unique place . It is not posh, not in the thick of any city, and it would not be an easy place with toddlers. But if you've got kids in the 4+ range and want to treat them to something out of the ordinary, I encourage you to consider these lighthouses. .we had a 6 year...

Had a fantastic reunion with old friends in this lovely period light keepers house. The house is warm and cosy and the beds really comfortable. As you would imagine being in a lighthouse the views do not disappoint. Would love to return with my family sometime.

We booked the cottage for a girl's reunion (6 of us) and it could not have been more perfect. Days spent walking in the glens and the coast walks, nights spent all sat around a real fire, catching up on old times. The cottages are beautifully restored and surprisingly cosy, given the dramatic winds outside and it really feels like...

This is a fantastic getaway in a remote - but not too remote - section of the Northern Ireland coast. The house stands sturdily and warm in the brisk, windy weather. The views are fantastic and you can see Scotland in the distance. It's a refuge and a haven. The house though old has everything you need sans WiFi and...

This is a truly unique place and one of our two faves during our recent trip. It is not posh, not in the thick of any city, and it would not be an easy place with toddlers. But if you've got kiddos in the 4+ range and want to treat them to something out of the ordinary, I encourage you...

Stayed here previous times and loved it. As of 2016 there is a minimum stay of 3 nights. The trust that manages the property will not budge. Not all of us have a ton of vacation time and an extra 200 US to stay the third night. Had to book elsewhere. Was going to be where I spend my 40th...
