Drumcovitt House
Reviewed August 3, 2010

We had a week's stay in the delightful Foyle Cottage which was perfect for us. We had two teenagers and a toddler with us and all were happy. The garden's delightful, the cottage has a homely feel to it with everything we could need. My husband particularly liked the wood burning stove and the ample supply of logs across the yard. The rooms were all clean and appropriately furnished with plenty of storage and a well-resourced kitchen. The family who own the cottages were very welcoming and friendly and were more like neighbours. We were in the area to watch a football tournament based around Derry so we travelled to various locations in the area. We also visited places such as the Giant's Causeway, Portrush and Benone beach; all are within a reasonable drive of Drumcovitt House. It was always nice to return to the cottage for a peaceful evening. The countryside is beautiful and we are looking for an excuse to return some time in the future. Highly recommended.

We stayed in Roe Loft for 3 nights at the end of March. We were warmly welcomed by Sarah and the dogs - I am a bit nervous of dogs but they were lovely friendly tail wagging pets! We were visiting relations in the area so were not around the farm much but we did walk up to the "glen" and made friends with the sheep and wee lambs. The setting of the house is beautiful and from Roe we could watch the birds and rabbits and the snow falling! We had a quite exciting stay really with blizzard conditions on one of the days. The power was off next morning and Sarah appeared with a flask of boiling water for our morning tea! The apartment is warm, comfortable and peaceful and has every thing you need including tea, coffee, washing up liquid etc. You just need to bring yourselves! The bread, milk, butter, jam that Sarah provided was very welcome and a nice touch. All in all a great place to stay. We would definitely return and have already recommended it to friends.

We were in Northern Ireland visiting family, and found Drumcovitt House online. The estate itself is very big and very old. The grounds are lovely, and I am told by locals that many go there to have their wedding pictures taken. In back of the main house, which is now only for the family who operates the self-catering cottages, there is a converted stable with three "cottages", basically apartments. We stayed in Roe Loft which was the last of the three and the most private. You walk in to an entryway and there's a half bath and a washer/dryer on that floor. Then you go upstairs and there is a full bath, two bedrooms and a kitchen/living area. We had everything we needed and more. They loaned us a laptop and we had free wireless access. There is a nice flat screen tv with cable tv. Our hosts had tea, bread, homemade jam and cookies for us when we arrived...much appreciated! It was so quiet and beautiful there. The birds sing and the flowers bloom.We felt ourselves just relaxing and enjoying our time.
My husband and sons did some hiking right there on the estate. There is lots of natural beauty, and we were able to get to the Antrim Coast and do a great day trip from Drumcovitt by car. We went to Portrush for late breakfast, then Dunluce Castle, Giant's Causeway, and finally Bushmill's Whiskey - all in one day! Made it back to Drumcovitt in time for our evening meal.

Stayed at this beautiful farmhouse for a few days to explore the sites of the north west of Northern Ireland. I stayed in a self-catering unit in converted farm buildings. Had a great welcome on arrival and was shown round the flat and explained all the essentials. I was only there three nights, but the owners had been kind to provide me with a loaf, a pint of milk, some butter and some raspberry jam. Tea, coffee and sugar were all provided as well, meaning there was no need to buy this during the few days I was there - not something I've seen many self-catering place do for you. The fact I could also stay a few days, as opposed to a full week, was a big bonus as well. Well worth staying here and good value.

We stayed in two of the self catering apartments (Faughan and Foyle) at Drumcovitt house over a long weekend. There were 11 of us total (7 of them kids ranging from age 4-13). The apartments were exceptionally clean, the fireplace made it extra cozy, and the hosts, Chris and Sarah, were extremely friendly and helpful. The kids loved the dogs and the playroom with the table tennis. Chris directed us to a great pub called John T's, (in Dungiven I think- about 10 minutes away) where we had great food (large quantities of it), and friendly service. A very kid friendly establishment. The grocery in Feeny is less than 5 minutes away and has everything you'll need to stock your kitchen during your stay.

Feeny is a pleasant drive to the Bushmill's area (about an hour away) where we visited the distillery and of course the amazing Giant's Causeway. A definite must see if you are in the area.
We did not have the opportunity to explore the farm much as it was late November and rainy. Should we find ourselves in the area again, we will definitely stay at Drumcovitt House.

Self-catering apartment with two bedrooms (one upstairs, one down), nice kitchen and den. Lovely grounds, gardens, farmland. They have a big playroom for kids with a pool table, ping pong, and some toddler toys. There is a really nice path you can take from the "cottage" that runs along a field with sheep, cows, and meanders down by streambed. A grocery store is nearby that has everything you might need. Friendly dogs.

We have stayed at Drumcovitt several times with the first time in the Summer of 2000 and the most recent in November 2003. Both times we stayed in the self-catering cottages, the old barn converted into spacious and comfortable apartments. Florence and Frank were our hosts both times and we were sad to see that Frank passed away. They were both wonderful hosts who insured that we had a roaring fire in the fireplace to greet us with each stay. All cottages come with a kitchen, living room and several bedrooms and bathrooms.
The Antrim Coast, Bushmills, Derry and Belfast are short drives from the Inn.
