Northern Ireland region

County Derry, officially know as Londonderry, is perched on the northwest coast of Northern Ireland. Covering an area of some 798 square miles, the Derry landscape is varied and breathtaking. To the south are the forested glens of the Sperrin Mountains while to the north and east is the spectacular coastline of Portstewart, Castlerock and Benone Strands, some of Ireland's best beaches, with miles of wide-open sand and surf.

Derived from the Irish 'Doire' meaning oak grove, Derry has long been a sacred place for early Celtic and Christian settlements. In the 6th century, the Irish Saint Columba founded a monastery beside the River Foyle in 546 AD, where the oak tress grew. The City walls of Derry are amongst the best preserved fortifications in Europe. The layout of the city reflects the original town plan set out several hundred years ago. In 1609, an agreement was made with the Corporation of London for the rebuilding of Derry, hence the introduction of the name Londonderry.

Derry has some fine architecture across the County including the Georgian town of Limavady and the folly overlooking Downhill Strand, Mussenden Temple, built by the eccentric Earl Bishop of Derry. Other cultural attractions include Bellaghy Bawn, a 17th century enclosure, containing a permanent exhibition on the locally born, Nobel laureate poet, Seamus Heaney. The Earhart Centre at Ballyarnet commemorates where Amelia Earhart (the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo) brought her plane down in 1932. The first recording of 'Londonderry Air' was by Jane Ross in 1851, which was later affectionately known as 'Danny Boy'.

Visitors to Derry can also enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities from first-class golf to hill walking and excellent river angling. Roe Valley Country Park near Limavady is a superb place for salmon and trout fishing, canoeing, rock climbing and walking through miles of magnificent, preserved woodlands.

Portstewart

Named after the family whose 18th Century estate included the harbour - Portstewart is a relaxing and sedate resort. It is linked to its neighbour Portrush by road and the Port Path, a three-mile coastal walk. The town has a picturesque harbour and promenade and to the west is the sweeping two-mile stretch of Portstewart Strand. This was once home to Neolithic and early Iron Age people whose flints, arrowheads and pottery shards have been excavated from beneath the sandhills.

Portstewart is an attractive town for shopping and eating out and has a flourishing arts and cultural scene with the well established Arts Centre, Flowerfield, as well as art galleries and shops situated along the Promenade. Famous for it's ice cream, visitors can sample a variety of home-made flavours at a number of ice-cream parlours, the famous 'Morelli's Ice Cream' among them.

A simple fishing village until the early 19th century, Portstewart, under the new ownership of John Cromie, set about developing it as a ‘watering place'. He built ‘good houses' to accommodate summer visitors and when the railway arrived in 1855 the expansion of Portstewart really took off. Local landowners however glad of the business the railway brought, did not want the railway lines to cross their land so the station was built a mile away from Portstewart, with a steam tram linking it to the Promenade.

Increasingly popular as a holiday centre during the 20s and 30s, Portstewart also remained a busy fishing port right up to the Second World War with a new harbour being built for the fleet. The sight of the fishing smacks setting off with the sun sinking behind the Innishowen hills in Donegal helped inspire the songwriter Jimmy Kennedy to pen the poignant ‘Red Sails in the Sunset'.

A prominent feature of the town is O'Hara's Rock Castle, built in 1834 and later converted into a school, still in use today as part of Dominican College School. Beneath this building begins a magnificent cliff walk leading to Portstewart Strand and a holy well from which St Patrick is reputed to have drunk (Tober Patrick).

At the crescent youngsters and families can enjoy a superb play pool and outdoor entertainment complex, complete with bandstand and tiered seating. There is an artificial lake, climbing frames, slides and see-saws. Other recreational facilities include bowls, tennis and football at The Warren and there is a 9-hole and two excellent 18-hole golf courses.

The Causeway Coast Way, one of eight Waymarked Ways throughout Northern Ireland, is an exhilarating walking route following the dramatic north Ulster coastline from Portstewart to Ballycastle. The 52km waymarked route incorporates the Port Path (Portstewart Strand to Whiterocks, Portrush) and the Causeway Coast path. The route passes along sandy beaches, rocky bays, high cliffs, seaside resorts and small fishing villages, offering a great variety of coastal scenery within the designated Causeway Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2015

Its was a very very nice house it had everything we needed. The house overlooked the sea, it was a great view to get up to in the morning. The town was very nice and within walking distance. It was our first time in Ireland but it wont be our last and we will make sure we stay at the same house.

“Great house, in great location”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2011

Used the house as a base for a golfing weekend with 3 friends, found the house and location to be excellent for exploring the coast of northern Ireland. Around an hours easy drive from Belfast airport. Enjoyed a great view across the strand when we arrived, followed by a few pints of Guinness in the Ship (less than 3 mins walk at the end of the road) on the Friday evening. Saturday had great weather again, and enjoyed a round of golf at the nearby portstewart course. Saturday night we took advantage again of the ship, but took it easy and enjoyed the houses dvd collection . Sunday, another round of golf, this time at Royal Portrush, followed by a nice dinner in one of the restaurants in portstewart, again only a short walk away. Left early on Monday am to catch a plane, after having a great weekend in beautiful location, everyone agreed that the house was perfect, and had a high class, yet homely finish. Would recommend to everyone looking for a great place to stay.

“Lovely house in super location”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2011

My wife and I, along with our 2 children had a lovely time this house in Port Stewart. The house has been tastefully modernised and the owners have managed to retain the original character of the house. Furniture and fittings are of superb quality and the kitchen has everything you would expect of a modern kitchen. The bathroom excelled in having a large bath to relax in if you desire and a shower cubicle to allow for an invigorating shower as an alternative to bathing. A second toilet on the ground floor helps in those moments when some one else needs the loo. Superb views from the front rooms across the sea with magnificent sunsets gets eveyone running for a camera to take photos as no two sunsets are the same. At the rear a private garden with a large lawned area invites lots of fun games and there is a patio with BBQ. Watch out for the sunburn! A short walk in one direction takes you into the delightful town with lots of shops and restaurants to cater for all ages. There is wonderfully organised play area with a variety of inflatable bouncy castle type play equipment along with climbing frames etc for children of all ages. If you prefer to relax on the beach then take a short walk in the other direction from the house where you will find beaches to relax on and rock pools to investigate. A very short drive of a couple of minutes takes you a National Trust beach with drive on access where there are literally miles of beach to drive on, find a spot, park up and spend the day surfing, paddling, picnicking, snoozing, anything you would wish to do for all the family. I haven't even mentioned the pitch and putt, 9 hole and many 18 hole golf courses that are all within a few minutes drive frim the house. All in all a wonderfull place to stay in a fantastic location We will be booking again!
