About Etta Halliday

Belfast born and bred and currently living in another small fishing village with lots of history in Co Down. I love the rugged Co Antrim coastline just as much - particularly the great first gasp of 'north coast' sea air every visit - wonderfully restorative!

Etta Halliday purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Etta Halliday chose United Kingdom

It's walking distance to the places I love most - Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle. I'm a 'Chronicles of Narnia' fan and if this landscape could inspire CS Lewis, it's inspirational for this writer too.

What makes this cottage unique

It's a home from home - for me, my family and it seems our guests love it just as much. I love that our little cluster of homes is surrounded by fields and hedgerows yet walk for just a handful of minutes and you're at the restaurants and stores in the village. Perfectly peaceful and perfectly positioned.

Perfect Place for our Family

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful for our 2 adults/ 2 teenagers family. Very comfortable and had all of the amenities we needed. Etta was very communicative before and during the trip to provide information and answer our questions.

Spar grocery store for food within walking distance had everything we needed. Bushmills Distillery was a very short walk away and had a wonderfully informative tour. The cottage book with recommendations of where to grab Chinese takeout and Fish & Chips worked wonderfully. We easily walked to the public bus to ride to Giant’s Causeway and the Rope Bridge.

Highly recommend the cottage. And Etta, the cookies you left were absolutely wonderful!

Bushmills is just one hour from Belfast International airport, yet it's another world. We're right at the heart of the stunning Causeway Coastal Route - the essential Irish journey. With nine breathtaking Glens of Antrim to cycle, walk or drive, Eagry Cottage is less than a handful of miles from the main attractions: it's just 2 miles to the Giant's Causeway (World Heritage Site), Portballintrae beach, Dunluce Castle, Royal Portrush Golf Course, great surfing, and we're right on the doorstep of the famous Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery - 'legally' making whiskey since 1608!

There are great restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and craft nooks just an easy, short stroll away as well as seaside towns, fishing villages, National Trust properties and tiny, peaceful harbors to visit.

Pony trekking, the Old Llammas Fair in Ballycastle (August), the North West 200 road race (motorbikes) and Bird Sanctuary on Rathlin Island are all within easy reach of the house.

Golf: Links golf is the game played on a course designed by mother nature with as many humps and bumps as you like with a view unequalled for it's beauty! At Eagry Cottage, we love to boast one of the word's top links courses almost on our doorstep. Royal Portrush - just 3 miles away and home to the 2012 Irish Open! ('Home' to Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell - GMac, Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington - if you have to ask.... you're not a golfer!)

The Royal County Down Course is easily within driving distance too, though by the time you've tested your skills on the marvellous Portstewart and Castlerock courses as well, we think you'll have enough travellers tales to tell of the game at it's best, along one of the world's most spectacular coastlines.

All courses have specific information on their respective websites - easy enough to find on the web.
