Location description from owner

Northern Ireland region

Benone Strand forms part of one of Irelands longest beaches. A Blue Flag beach, it is popular throughout the year for a variety of outdoor activities and events with great views along the North Coast, to Inishowen in Donegal and to Scotland. Downhill Beach is also nearby.Bushmills Distillery The Old Bushmills Distillery claims and is considered to be the oldest licensed distillery in the world. A licence to distil in the area was granted to Sir Thomas Phillipps in 1608 by King James I and the 1608 date is printed on the labels of the Bushmills brand.Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge Beyond the Giants Causeway, a short coastal path leads to the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Traditionally fishermen erected the rope bridge to Carrick-a- Rede island over a 23m deep and 20m wide chasm so that they could cross to check their salmon nets. In the past it consisted of one single rope hand rail but this has been replaced by a two hand rail bridge by the National Trust.It is a site of special scientific interest with unique geology, flora and fauna. Diverse birdlife can be observed at close range including fulmars, kittiwakes, guillemots and razorbills. From here, there are stunning uninterrupted views of Rathlin island and the Scottish islands. It is a bird watchers; paradise but more extensively it is one of Northern Irelands best loved attractions.There are visitor facilities. Refreshments, guided tours, access for visitors with disabilities and facilities for families. Dogs must be kept on leads and are not permitted to cross the bridge. Saint Columbs Cathedral The cathedral dominates the skyline from its prominent position inside the City Walls. It was the first of its kind to be built after the Reformation in 1633 by William Parrot in a Planter Gothic style for the Honourable The Irish Society.Dunluce Castle Dunluce castle is a medieval Irish castle sited dramatically close to the edge of a headland along the North Antrim Coast. This medieval castle stands of the site of an early Irish Fort and its history can be traced to early Christians and Vikings.Dunluce has a rich and varied history borne out of bloodshed in battles. Well known names include the MacQuillan family in 1513 and later the MacDonnell Clan from Scotland who were its last occupants. Dunluce castle served as the seat of the 1st Earl of Antrim, a title conferred by Queen Elizabeth on Randall MacDonnell.

The spectacular scenery is famed in song and story. One of its most notable poets was John Hewitt. Literary tours starting in the John Hewitt pub in Belfast take you through the magnificent locations which inspired his stories of the Glens. Rathlin Island Rathlin is an island off theNorthAntrimCoastand is the most northerly point of Northern Ireland. It has a rugged landscape that is beautiful and tranquil with breathtaking views of Donegal, the North Antrim Coastline, theislandofIslayand the Mull of Kintyre.

“Lovely cottage, excellent location”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2016

This is a really lovely place to stay. I stayed here with my wife and 3 children and it had everything we needed. On first arrival we were unsure of how to get to the cottage as it is situated to the side and behind another property. This property isn't owned by the people that own the cottage so again this was a bit confusing. Once in the cottage we were surprised to find a lovely basket with essentials to get us through the first couple of days. Throughout our stay the owners of the cottage were very accommodating and checked in on us on a number of occasions to make sure everything was OK. We had a wonderful time, the location is wonderful, with close proximity to the beach and local towns not too far away. There is the benone tourist complex nearby which offers a range of activities to do. Overall s wonderful place to stay and wonderful location.
