Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
City Chic meets Coastal Haven in this luxurious yet unpretentious, high-spec Irish seaside retreat, rated 5-Star by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and Established in May 2013.
Fancy a holiday cottage set in a picturesque village, overlooking a golf course on the sea, with breathtaking views of rolling hills (cows and sheep included)? Or better yet, imagine yourself swinging open the balcony door, stepping onto your private veranda and breathing in the fresh air of the Sea of Moyle, which is located just a few yards away.
As if the stunning scenery isn't enticing enough…then sink into the cosy couches and cuddle up next to the crackling fire, with a pint of Guinness after a brilliant day on the golf course, or following a glorious nature walk courtesy of the nearby Glens of Antrim, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
You'll be living the best of both worlds in this luxurious, contemporary town house which just so happens to be located on the stunning North Antrim Coast in the heart of tranquil and quaint, Cushendall.
Aside from the spectacular panoramic views of lush pastures and serene seascapes, you'll find that luxury awaits on the inside too. The highest specifications are offered and no detail has been overlooked. Imported furnishings throughout complement the state-of-the art music and television entertainment system. Jam out to your favourite tunes (as they render in every room, all through the three level house) from your iPod, CD, TV or radio. Cook up a storm in the open plan, kitted-out kitchen and living area. Hors d'oeuvre anyone? Pass the champers, now…please!
So, sit-back, and sip your favourite wine in front of the plasma TV or after a long, indulgent soak in the spa bath. Plush bathrobes will aid the pampering process, that is, until you decide to call it a night and melt into those luscious Egyptian cotton sheets.
Rise and shine, grab a cuppa and the morning newspaper and head out to the ground floor patio area, off the master bedroom. You're literally a stone's throw from the putting green, and although it may be tempting, it's probably best to keep those golf tips to yourself.
The property can accommodate five adults and a child, with travel cots available. Other baby-friendly props include safety gates, a high-chair, rainbow cups and utensils, along with toys, games and kiddie DVDs. There are three bedrooms (master bedroom, double bedroom and single bedroom) and two bathrooms (one en-suite with bath and shower and one with spa bath and shower).
Welcome pack upon arrival will offer an array of local goodies. Expect a bottle of wine, milk, wheaten bread, fruit and jam and some chocolatey bits! Along with this hamper, you'll receive a warm, friendly greeting from Bridget, your local Guest Manager during your stay.
Antrim Abode is the perfect place for romantic getaways, family gatherings, golf excursions, or simply a base for exploring the beautiful local attractions. Amongst the charm of a little village, you'll be near world-renowned tourist spots such as the Giant's Causeway, Old Bushmills Distillery (renowned as the oldest licensed distillery in the world) and The Carrick-A-Reed Rope Bridge. And let's not forget the championship golf courses that include Portstewart and Portrush where the great Rory McIlroy plays.... and, of course, our very own nine-hole course next door in Cushendall!
Antrim Abode is within close proximity to hotels, restaurants, shops and bars. Private car parking for two cars is located at the front of the property, for your convenience.
If you happen to be travelling with friends or a larger group, please get in touch and we will contact another nearby luxury abode to check for availability.

The County Antrim region
The Glens of Antrim (Irish: Glinnte Aontroma), known locally as simply The Glens, is a region of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It comprises nine glens (valleys), that stretch from the Antrim Plateau to the coast.
The Glens are officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are a major visitor attraction in North Antrim.
The main towns and villages in the Glens are Ballycastle, Cushendun, Cushendall, Waterfoot and Carnlough.
The village of Cushendall is nestled in the heart of the Antrim Glens, below the famous Glenariff peak. Cushendall is host to the wonderful Heart of the Glens Festival in August each year, a week-long celebration that attracts visitors from far and wide.
A short drive away and guests can visit some of the most stunning scenery imaginable from Torr Head near Cushendun to the historic Giant's Causeway. Keen golfers can play on the course in Cushendall itself, or wander further afield to the championship courses at Portrush or Portstewart.

"Super house, super view"
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Antrim Abode in Cushendall. As we wanted somewhere on the coast to use as a base for seeing the area it was ideally situated, only a short drive from the ferry at Larne. The house definitely lives up to its 5 stars, tastefully furnished and has everything you could wish for. The view from the upstairs living room is fabulous, overlooking the pretty Cushendall Golf Course and distant views out to sea. On a clear day we could see all the way over to Kintyre. Bridget was lovely and very helpful (quickly sorted out a couple of mishaps for us). We thought the eating locally was only average but we had a delicious lunch at the Bushmills Inn, Bushmills and the Eurospar in the village is handy and well stocked. We would highly recommend.

"Home from Home"
We are just back from a glorius 2 day break at Antrim Abode. Being regular hotel users the main attraction of this accomodation was both the quality of the accomodation and the central location along the Antrim coast with Cushendall being a friendly little town with an excellent range of amenities all within a 5 min walk from the house including a good supermarket, restaurants and numerous bars. This being important if like us you like to spend your days out exploring and don't then want to have to drive again to go out for a meal or a drink in the evening.The accomodation itself was excellent with wonderful views and all the little added personal touches which made it so much more enjoyable and homely than staying at a hotel. We also really appreciated the yummy welcome basket and the helpfullness of Bridgit (the house manager) who accomodated us so gracefully in terms of our preferred arrival and departure time. In relation to the area Cushendall is well placed to explore the coast and within 2 days we were able to revisit all up and down the coast. For those of you like us who have grown up in NI and been to the coast innumerable times it was great to go the the less populated spots such as Ballintoy Harbour and walk right round the coast to Whitepark Bay (just make sure you have good walking shoes). Bushmills is also a nice stop and I'm pleased to say it has now some nice little craft shops and cafes which are worth a stop as well as the Distillery if you haven't been. Finally to come back to Cushendall I just wanted to give a mention to Harrys Bar where we had a lovely meal and which offered a good selection of wines at reasonable prices. We went mid week and the place was suprisingly busy so make sure you book if you plan to go at the weekend to avoid disappointment. As you can see from the length of this review we managed to squeeeze in quite a lot in our 2 night stay and came back feeling refreshed and somewhat sad to leave - which in my mind is a testament to the quality and location of this little gem. Many thanks - we hope to be back in the not too distant future.
Thank you so much for the comprehensive review of the accommodation and surroundings - this will be a great source of information and tips for future guests!

"Fantastic house in a great location. Perfect."
We arrived earlier than anticipated and phoned the Housekeeper, Bridget, who was more than happy to meet us at the house and show us around, making sure we knew where everything was and how everything worked. The Kitchen is very well presented with all modern appliances available. The view from the balcony overlooked the golf course and down to the beach. All rooms are large and well decorated, the house was warm and clean with a lot of the luxuries of a hotel with the privacy and flexibility of self catering. Being able to walk into Cushedall for a beer and a good meal (as well as a takewaway) and being close to a well stocked shop are all further benefits for this great house. We would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to base themselves in the Glens of Antrim with all the comforts of home.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review. So pleased you enjoyed the house and beautiful Cushendall. And we see you discovered some of the local gems!
