Nestled in an amazing place. Near a beautiful beach, just down the street from the village center - golf course, Ruth’s Bakery, COSTCUTTER grocery, a nice gift shop, a pharmacy, a butcher shop, a delightful place to eat (Caruso’s), the train station (to Londerry 10 minutes before the hour - to Coleraine & beyond 10 minutes past the hour). New Coffee Hut has just opened. Have not tried it yet. Being without a car, this location is ideal for me. The house itself is very clean and well stocked. This is my 5th year to return. It is truly my home away from home.
We loved the house ! All conveniences at hand !
Central to many tourist places of interest. The weather did not cooperate, but, just whets our appetite to return when the weather is better.
Great to have you as a guest. May through September are usually the best months for weather in Castlerock. We will look into ordering better weather for your next visit.
Comfortable, well equipped, excellent base for exploring
We loved our stay in Castlerock, a sleepy seaside town. The house is very close to a long sandy beach, a bakery and a shop. There are walks along the beach and walks along the cliff, I loved seeing the sun setting over Mussenden Temple and Donegal.
The house itself has everything you need. It is much more spacious than I thought it would be and clearly much more than just a holiday rental for the owners. The house is comfortable and practical, it felt like a home rather than a holiday rental. We would definitively recommend it! Thank you Robert!
Wonderful stay in a TOP house near beach
Tolles Haus , dass mit seiner Lage und Ausstattung überzeugt. 3 Schlafzimmer, grosses Bad, Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine und Trockner. Von Castlerock kann man schöne Ausflüge machen. Nordirland bietet wirklich viel !!!

Fantastic house and great location
We had a lovely holiday here. Great house with excellent furnishings and all necessary household equipment. Garden was lovely and secure for our children. The location is superb - 30 seconds from beach and a very well stocked local shop a few minutes walk up the road. Would highly recommend.
Many thanks for the review. So glad you enjoyed staying at our home. Hope you have the chance to return. Tell your friends about the hidden gem of Castlerock and Mullaghard.
