In a quiet location just a short walk from the blue flag Castlerock beach and a short drive to the splendid Causeway coast with its sandy beaches and stunning views. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable with all amenities in excellent condition. The owner obviously pays attention to detail to make guests feel welcome. We enjoyed a holiday here...

Another great family holiday in Tara Lodge; we're been returning for a number of years now, as we've always found it to be comfortable, and a real home away from home. We were really lucky this year with the weather, which meant we were able to enjoy more time on Castlerock's great beaches. Already looking forward to next year.

Management response:

Delighted to have Martin & the extended family at Tara Lodge once again. Always welcome. See you 2018. Regards Diane.
