“The perfect Stay-cation!!! Highly recommended!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband & I stayed at Tara Lodge in July this year and had an amazing holiday.The house is clean, beautifully furnished and has everything you could need. The 3 bathrooms are brilliant, especially if you have a lot of people staying at the property.

A short walk will take you to the beach, the golf course, the local cafes, pubs and restaurants. My husband loved the links golf course, where you can play either the 18 hole championship course or a very challenging 9 hole course!

If you like going for longer walks from the house, I would recommend Mussenden Temple and Downhill Castle ruins. Not forgetting Castlerock beach itself - we took a walk down to the pier and saw porpoises swimming in the Bann estuary!

The surrounding area also has plenty to offer, with Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle and Inishowen just a short drive away. The nearby towns of Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine are also worth a visit with lots to do with the family.

We will definitely be returning!

We were in Northern Ireland for our son's wedding; people were coming and going, with the house full on the wedding day itself. Tara Lodge suited us very well indeed, close to the venue, quiet and with bedrooms and reception rooms able to accommodate our changing needs perfectly.

Furnishings were excellent and in good condition. Lots of helpful information before our arrival and in the house itself.
