The cottage is close to excellent walking and is also an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful North Antrim coast and the Glens of Antrim.
Horse riding is available at Sheans Horse Farm, a riding school and trekking centre on a 400 acre family farm just about five miles from the cottage.

Spend a day walking the Moyle Way, exploring ancient Breen Oak woods just half a mile away or touring the stunning North Antrim coast - then return home and relax in front of a crackling log fire or watch the sun set on the west facing patio.

There is also good surfing and body boarding at Whiterocks beach about 20 miles away near Portrush -equipment can be hired locally. Watch the NITB video for a glimpse of what you can do in the area.

Location description from owner

Northern Ireland region

County Antrim is the most famous of the counties of Northern Ireland, most probably because of the Giant's Causeway one of the great wonders of the natural world and now a UNESCO world heritage site. It is also home to the stunningly beautiful Nine Glens of Antrim and the Antrim coast road is recognized as one of the worlds great road journeys with its rugged cliffs, beautiful beaches and pretty fishing villages.
From waterfalls to rivers to Forest Parks as well as historic sites and lots in between, County Antrim has it all!

There is a golf course right by the beach and opportunities to take in some deep sea fishing.

“Magical”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

My husband, a neighbor and I stayed in this cottage near Ballycastle for a week. It was the second week of our trip, one that I had wanted to go on for many, many years. This cottage was so home-like, with a great modern kitchen, warm and welcoming fireplaces that were sorely needed during the damp evenings, and best of all the ever present lowing of sheep lulling us to sleep. We enjoyed the convenience of the cottage to Ballycastle and all points of interest. We loved the Diamond Bar for the excellent food and staff (Robin, especially), we loved the people we met, the ferry ride to Rathlin, the sights that we saw in our drives: the Glens of Antrim, Giant's Causeway, Carrick a Reed, the walled city of Derry, and the Titanic exhibit in Belfast. We appreciate the patience of the Irish people who gave us directions, dealt with our unfamiliarity of their money, loaned us a cell phone (our phone did not work there) and gave our neighbor an unexpected gift. Now? We are home. Happy to be here, but already thinking of returning to Ireland. I have a dear friend who will be visiting Ireland on her second trip within the next couple of weeks. I only hope that she has as wonderful a trip as we did.

“Good base for North Antrim”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2011

We had a lovely time at this cozy and comfortable cottage. It was ideal for our little trip at Easter. We had beautiful weather, which made it even more pleasant. It was clean, well equipped and had all the mod cons needed. I would recommend this little quaint cottage to further couples or a group of 4 people. We really enjoyed sitting in front of the turf fire in the evenings as well. Good value for the money. You'd definitely want a car or bicycles to explore the north coast.

“Fantastic Cottage full of Character, Highly Recommend.”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

This cottage has everything anyone could need. It is isolated enough from the local town but close enough to get those bits and pieces you run out of. Excellent home-made jam at the supermarket. The snug room is so cosy with it's real fire, the dining room offers fabulous views from it's window. The kitchen is extremely well equipped as is the bathroom. Upstairs is just a dream. If you like the real antiquated feel then you will not be disappointed! Two old iron bedsteads, one with original spring, in each of the bedrooms means you are spoilt for choice! We bed hopped, one night in one room and the next in the other room. The bedroom with the original sprung bed in it was so cosy and comfortable it just swallowed you up. The sad thing was that we had to get up the next morning! I think you must be getting our drift by now we really could not fault Breen Cottage and would highly recommend to anyone! There is a lot of information on walks, days out and a host of other information. The owner has pulled out all the stops to provide you with a wonderful holiday. The Antrim coastline is just breathtaking. This is a definite for Honeymooners.
