“Tara Cottage is certainly a home from home”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely, comfortable home to come back to after a day out. Comfortable beds, television in every room, plenty of crockery, cutlery & pans. Well sited base for exploring all that the North Coast has to offer. My 2 grandchildren thought it was 'cool'. The grown ups say 'comfortable & cosy'. Can definitely recommend.

“Tara Cottage is perfect”

My wife and I had a lovely break here. The location is just as described and the accommodation was perfect - roomy, well equipped, clean and stylish. We were given complete privacy but the owner emailed to make sure everything was O.K. The flowers in three of the rooms were a nice touch. The bungalow is in a quiet residential cul-de-sac and the totally enclosed garden is safe for children. Modern televisions in all rooms! For us it lacked absolutely nothing and is probably the best of this type of accommodation we have ever stayed in. We will certainly be back - this year again I hope. Thanks guys!

Stayed at Tara Cottage for one week in July 2012 with my wife and 3 children - Tara Cottage was first class with all amenities, mod cons and was totally Spotless. Wanted for nothing. Excellent Location and facilities. Will be returning. Highly recommended.

“Home away from Home”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We found out about Tara Cottage from friends who had stayed there several times previously and decided to book the cottage for a few days during our vacation in Northern Ireland. When we arrived, we were met by the owners, Trevor and Rosemary Patterson, who are the most pleasant, friendly people you would ever want to meet!! They let us in to Tara Cottage and showed us around and it just felt like we'd come home!! It is a beautiful 3 bedroom cottage on a very quiet, exclusive road and backs on to nothing but the beautiful green fields that you can only find in Ireland. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could want for your stay and we were very sad to leave. We would totally recommend Tara Cottage to anyone looking for accommodation where you can feel totally relaxed and at ease as well as being extremely well-positioned to the coast. Truly a pleasure!!
