Property description

Traditional Irish country cottage hidden on the beautiful causeway coast close to the Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Royal Portrush Golf Club and the Carrick a Rede rope bridge. Secluded and close to miles of beautiful National Trust sea shore walks. Sea Fishing trips where the Irish Sea and the Atlantic meet offer great fun days and fresh water salmon fishing on the Bush river are available by arrangement. Visit Rathlin island to see one of the most important sea bird nesting areas in western Europe. Rent fast sea going RIBS in Ballycastle to tour this magnificent coastline. See the Giants Causeway from the sea or visit Robert the Bruce's cave on Rathlin the choices are endless. From your base in Ballintoy self catering will be a pleasure, fresh fish off the small boats fishing these waters and good resturants in abundance. Fine wines may be ordered in advance and be ready for you when you arrive at your self catering cottage. Please request details when you book.

Car: Recommended

The Causeway coast is rich with natural beauty and good places to eat. Only a few minutes away from your traditional Irish cottage you find such wonders as the Giants Causeway, Whitepark Bay, Torr Head, Rathlin Island,

The White Rocks Portrush and the Bush river that feeds the famous Busmills Irish Whisky Distillery. Great resturants and traditional pub fare helps to replace the calories lost on the beautiful coast walks. The National Trust has protected many miles of beautiful walks along beaches that join cliff tops to headlands from where you can watch the flow and ebb of the great tides that sweep in an out of the Irish sea from the North Atlantic. Fishing is rich as is the sea bird life on Rathlin, reached by regular daily ferry crossings or with fast RIBs that offer tours of the area. Some of Ireland's most famous golf clubs such as The Royal Portrush are only a few minutes away from your base in Ballintoy. To the south the majestic 7 Glens of Antrim are only half an hour away.

Other Activities: coastal sea trips, nature trails.

Golf: Ballintoy is located between the world renowned Royal Portrush and Ballycastle Golf Club. The beautiful Bushfoot Golf Club is a few minutes drive. All three clubs boast North Atlantic beach fronts. There are some 7 Golf Clubs in the area.
