“Great weekend at the Boat House”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2018

The Boat House has an idyllic setting if being close to the beach & very peaceful surroundings is important to your vacation. Our late teens to twenty something big kids loved it! The accommodation was well equipped and excellently clean. The house was cosy not long after we put the central heating on. Lovely fire equipped with fire lighters & fuel too. We had everything we needed & would recommend it without any hesitation...even though we would like it to remain Greencastle's best kept secret! We'll definitely be booking again!

Owner's reply: Thank you. Glad you liked the Boathouse.

“Boathouse Holiday”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2017

Very relaxing two weeks! Eating breakfast each morning to the view across the sea to Sweet Nelly's Bay. Once tide receded, we walked across and explored all the beaches. Would recommend eating in The Golf Clubhouse. Their menu is varied and well priced. Very friendly Staff as well.Also, would highly recommend The Boathouse Restaurant in Redcastle. The Boathouse has a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable settee and chairs but the upstairs bedroom needs somewhere to hang clothes. The location is perfect for sightseeing along the Wild Atlantic Way. We did all of it over the two weeks, despite the weather. Would definitely recommend The Boathouse.

Owner's reply: Thanks Shirley. Glad you had a good time and enjoyed the house.

The boathouse is about 3km from the village of Green castle and 1 km from Shroove Lighthouse which has a beautiful beach beside it . Kinnegoe Bay, Another beautiful beach is about 7 km away . Really enjoyed the stay and would definitely go back.

“Amazing would go back today”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2012

Just back from a long weekend in the boathouse, the sun made it feel like being abroad. I went with my father, sister, brother in law , my brother (13)and nephew's (9 years & 6 months) and we had a great time. The 2 older kids had a ball and loved being able to go off on adventures and were never bored once. The beds are so comfortable I would love to have one like that at home.Waking up to the sea on your door step was a great experience, cant recommend this highly enough.

“A very nice house with 'character' beautifully located, a pleasure to stay.”

Reviewed 27 May 2012

This is a very nice place to stay, the boathouse history gives the place a special character and positions it on a fantastic place, with great view on the bay and its birds and seals when sitting in the living room. For those that appreciate such a setting, the small disadvantages of an older building are of minor importance. The region is great for walks and drives. In early May, the bay in front of the house was very quiet, a thing that we highly appreciate. During the summer season, nearby caravan parks will probably make it somewhat less quiet. The house is well equipped, but furniture and decorations probably make it less suitable for families with a wild bunch of children.

“Idyllic setting, unique cottage, total relaxation.”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2012

We have stayed at the Boathouse with our 2 dogs on several occasions and found it to be one of the most relaxing breaks we've ever had. Columb and his mum are excellent hosts, the cottage is spotlessly clean and has everything you need. As it says in the advert it really is 15ft from the beach, step out of the patio doors, a few steps across the grass and you're there. I can't recommend it highly enough.

“Unique, homely and cosy”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2012

Great few days in the boathouse. Perfect for us. 4 adults and 2 children (age 7 & 9). Kids were able to play on beach in front of boathouse while we tidied breakfast things away, made packed lunch or prepared the evening meal. No nagging and the kids never once said they were bored!! Lovely open fire and good central heating - rooms got hot quickly, especially the birds nest room. Bedrooms were a nice size and beds were comfy, Nice hot shower, large cubicle ;) The beach is perfect and we saw the seals on the rocks on our first night. Nearby, the beach at Kinnagoe Bay was like paradise. We would all go back tomorrow!!!
