The house was very large, with so many beautiful rooms! The living room was really cozy with the fireplace (although it was May, it was nice to warm up). The location was perfect, with space outside to park our car. I cannot recommend this place enough for anyone visiting the area !
8 of us spent a week at Tara Lodge in May and the house added to our enjoyment of a beautiful part of Northern Ireland. It is well placed to visit the beaches, the mountains, and all the other attractions Tara Lodge lives up to its 5 star rating yet provides a cosy retreat after our long walks.
Well designed and maintained, this is a beautiful, roomy, well equipped house. It is within walking distance of the train station and the beach and a good restaurant, The Rock, next to the station. Couldn't ask for more.
We had an amazing time in Northern Ireland. Tara Lodge was the perfect base for our daily trips to visit the historical sights. The house was beautiful with excellent facilities. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We were within walking distance to the golden sands of Castle rock and the local shop.
I would definitely recommend Tara Lodge to my family and friends.
My husband and I spent last weekend at Tara Lodge and it was one of the best times we've had away. The house itself has everything anyone could possibly want including a lovely wood burning stove in the lounge. The kitchen was fully equipped with quality appliances although we only used it for breakfast as we ate out in some of the wonderful restaurants in the area.
On Friday night, after a walk on the beautiful Castlerock beach and a drink in the adjoining golf club, we ate at The Tides in Portstewart at a window table overlooking the sea and across to Donegal, watching the most amazing sunset. The food and service were great. Exceptional value with three courses for the price of the main as well as offers on cocktails.
On Saturday we visited the nearby waterfall and craft/coffee shop and then we took the train to Derry (station is a five minute walk from house). This stunning railway journey is classed as one of the world's most beautiful by Michael Palin and Michael Portillo among others, and it didn't disappoint!
In Derry we walked across the famous Peace Bridge, visited the Guildhall, sat outside and had great coffee and cakes watching one of the many events in the square. We walked the famous walls, taking in the history of this beautiful city and did some retail therapy in some of the great shops. We rounded it off with cocktails and fabulous food in Browns in Town, another fantastic restaurant with great value high quality food and drink and exceptional service.
As we headed back on the train we watched the most magnificent sunset over the city. We rounded off the perfect day relaxing with a glass of wine in front of the lovely fire. We can't wait to return and visit some of the other magnificent beaches and restaurants which the north coast is famous for.
Brilliant weekend in Castlerock for my sisters 50th birthday weekend. Tara Lodge is ideally situated and is very well equipped with everything anyone would want. Very clean comfortable house ensuring the six of us had a lovely time. Would definitely recommend this holiday rental. Thanks to the owner Diane for all your help. Thoroughly enjoyed.
