“Wonderful, warm, spacious house with great views, close to the beach”
Reviewed February 19, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had a lovely stay in this great house. There was lots of room for our family of seven and it was very good value for money. The house is well-equipped with a very good quality washing machine and separated dryer. We didn't use the dishwasher but no doubt it is the same. The bed in the main bedroom was so comfortable that I slept better than at home! The open fire in the living room has to be experienced! The owner left us with all we needed to light it and enjoy it.
The beach is a few minutes walk away, forests and waterfall a short drive. We didn't have time to see everything so we'd love to go back! There is lots of information provided so you can make the most of your time, as well as free wifi included so you can research places to go for yourself. We were welcomed warmly and given lots of local information.

Cottage was in a ideal location for village of Cushendall, beach and exploring Antrim coast. The house was warm and very well equipped. With everything needed for a comfortable stay. The living room had a open fire and you could see the see.

The house was spotless, warm and inviting. Lots of bed linen and towels. When we arrived there was tea making supplies and a fruit cake, which was much appreciated. A very pleasant lady met us and gave us a run down on the area. Lovely area with lovely walks. Really enjoyed our stay.

“Good family accomodation near the sea and handy for all local amenities.”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Ballymacdoe cottage is affordable accomodation in a quaint coastal Irish village, we were meeting with relatives and needed somewhere central to stay. The cottage had good sized rooms and modern decor. The washing machine was great and a very quick tumble dryer as we had accumulated a lot of washing. In a quiet residential area but minutes from the sea front. Gerard and Catriona very welcoming and were very helpful , plenty space for 4 to 6 people and a pleasant living room and dining area. Garden and BBQ for the summer months.Would certainly recommend.

Liked best: Near the sea and good price for this type of accomodation.
Liked least: Garden could be more attractive, mattress in double bed a bit firm but fine. I can't have pets due to allergies and they made sure that cottage was dog hair free.
