Tara Lodge is an award winning detached, 1800sq. ft., 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, holiday lodge located on the outskirts of the beautiful rural village of Castlerock, in County Derry/Londonderry, which itself nestles on the shores of a stunning Blue Flag Beach, overlooked by historical Mussenden Temple & Downhill Castle.

Tara Lodge has been beautifully furnished and decorated with high quality items, and is simply superb for any party looking for a rural and seaside getaway. Excellent for those golfers wishing to access the best links golf courses on the North Coast, Castlerock, Royal Portrush & Portstewart Golf Clubs, all within 20 miles.

The beautiful modern fixtures and furnishings have been combined with traditional pieces to create a truly luxurious holiday lodge. There is solid wooden flooring and a reclaimed brick inglenook fireplace housing a cosy wood burner in the living room, while the high spec kitchen offers solid oak work surfaces, enhanced by an antique dresser with solid oak worktop. For those coffee connoisseurs there is a DeLonghi Espresso Coffee Machine. There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor one with ensuite and then a large bathroom with separate shower. Upstairs there are 2 further bedrooms and a beautiful shower room. The upstairs double bedroom also has its own lounge area for relaxing and chilling out. The outside area is perfect for alfresco dining, and the sound of ocean waves will relax you as you allow it to sooth your senses. Curl up in front of the cosy open fire, make the most of the decking areas and enjoy freshly made coffee whilst taking in the fresh sea air. Stroll down to the amazing beach, overlooking Donegal, Inishowen Peninsula, watch the dolphins & porpoise enjoying the fresh Atlantic waves and then wander up the hillside to the breath-taking Mussenden Temple. Castlerock is sure to entice and delight even the most discerning of visitors.

Within the heart of the village is the train station giving easy access to Belfast, Dublin & Londonderry/Derry, there's also a local bus service providing pick up and drop off in the village too.

"Fantastic holiday in a beautiful location"

A fantastic holiday rental with everything you could ever need (and more!) in a stunning location. Fantastic beaches, walks and attractions all within walking distance of the house. Highlights of the trip included: helicopter rides along the North Coast, dolphin watching, seeing series 5 of Game of Thrones being filmed and visiting the Giants Causeway. Would highly recommend a day trip to Londonderry on the train, a fantastic journey along the coast to visit the 2013 Capital of Culture (the open top bus tour is something you should not miss).

Hi Elaine Thank you for completing a review of your stay at Tara Lodge. Delighted you enjoyed the helicopter ride over Mussenden Temple & the North Coast. Its a real treat.The North Coast is utilized by Games of Thrones to film the series.Glad you got to see this, amazing!!! Hopefully you & you're family will be back at Tara Lodge soon. Regards Diane
