The Old Stables is a well appointed, comfortable cottage with a lovely view over Lough Foyle. It's peaceful location is ideal for a relaxed holiday and is within easy reach of the Giant's Causeway and the wild Atlantic way. The Inishowen peninsula is beautiful and we'll worth exploring. I would definitely recommend The Old Stables if you want a quiet holiday in beautiful surroundings.

Lovely cottage, beautiful location, stunning views and friendly people. Who needs more? The The view across Lough Foyle to Magilligan point from the garden is just the best. The cottage itsel is perfect. Well equipped with everything you'd need. Its wood burning stove, though only used once during the stay, makes a warm cozy feature on those not so pleasant days.
Whatever your interests there's no shortage of things to do and see. The cottage is a perfect base to explore the Inishowen Peninsula and beyond.
Closer to home there are some fantastic walks, quant quiet beaches and spectacular cliffs. The pubs in nearby Greencastle and Moville are excellent but you don't have to venture much further than Michael Johns bar a mere 300yds from the cottage. The local taxi service is cheap should you wish avoid using the car.
Would recommend this property to anyone for a brilliant relaxing holiday.
