About Kate Wilkinson
We built Tara's House in 2008 - a real labour of love and we are very proud of the house and we love to share this very special place with our guests. It was designed by an architect family member and we all survived to tell the tale! We have replanted a rose that used to grow at the original cottage on the site as a memento to the history of the site.
Kate Wilkinson purchased this House in 2008
Why Kate Wilkinson chose Moville
The site has the most amazing sea views and as the locals say 'it's feels different up here in Stroove'. It's a much longer story than that - which we'll tell you if you come and stay!
What makes this House unique
Tara's House is unique in so many ways, not least it's contemporary design - a refreshing change from the usual dormer bungalows you see across Ireland. It is safe, private and best of all has completely wonderful sea views.

The views and location of the property were exactly what we were looking for!
The home is beautiful and extremely clean. Views and privacy were amazing. Kate left us some cookies, cake and a well needed bottle of wine which was very appreciated. My only suggestion to make the visit more comfortable would be for the home to be better stocked for visitors. There were no coffee filters, hand soap, napkins, only one kitchen towel and one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom which cut it very close. We did not come prepared for that. But we had an amazing stay non the less. Thank you Kate and Gavin!!
Bless you both!
Sea view house
Great house and what a beautiful location. Our hosts Gavin and Kate were very helpful with all things from where to go for dinner to all sights we needed to see. One suggestion I have would have to build in the price of disposing the garbage in the rental price as we were scrambling to find euros to take care of the trash. Quite comical really. When we come back we will stay in this beautiful house with it’s great location. Thank you Gavin and Kate our wonderful hosts.
Lovely mini break with my family
We had a great stay in this house. Communication with the hosts was great. All of our needs were met. The house itself is extremely comfortable and the view is beautiful. With small children, it was nice to walk down to the beach and then relax in the house afterwards with plenty of space for them to play. Thank you!
Thanks for your lovely review Jeannine and we hope to welcome you back in the future. All the best. Kate
A great house in a good location
Tara's house is of impressive modern design, very comfortable and well equipped, with lovely sea views through the large double glazed windows. The owners were very helpful. We visited wonderful beaches on the Inishowen Peninsular and the house is well placed to visit Northern Ireland too. We would happily return.
Property in a beautiful location overlooking Lough Foyle to Nothern Ireland. So relaxing.
This house had everthing you need to experience home from home! Lots of light and big windows to bring the outside in and enjoy those wonderful views. Quiet location and a great base for exploring around us. Beaches also superb. We had a great break and would 100% stay again.
A wonderfully comfortable home away from home.
Kate and Gavin were fantastic hosts who were helpful and attentive. We very much enjoyed our stay in their beautiful home. Highly recommend it.
HI Michelle, Thanks for your lovely review and we're delighted you had a good time. We hope to welcome you back in the future. All the best. Kate
Tara's House is a 10 minute walk from a Blue Flag beach, a 2 minute drive to a links golf course (Greencastle), and is approx 3km from the fishing village of Greencastle, and about 8km to the seaside town of Moville. It is an ideal base for family beach holiday in a safe and peaceful environment. The house also serves well as a touring base for the Inishowen peninsula and Northern Ireland. The historic city of Derry is 30 minutes drive away and the Antrim coastline and the Giant's Causeway can be reached via the Greencastle-Magilligan ferry. The house is a great place for families, couples, friends, golfers, artists and anglers, and also for those just wanting a quiet and beautiful place to relax. Activities that can be enjoyed in the local area include sailing, kayaking, shore walks, beaches, shopping in Derry, Millenium Theatre in Derry, Summer Festivals, Sea Angling, Golfing (Greencastle, Ballyliffen, Redcastle), Hill Walking and Scenic Tours.
