Set close to the coast, this is an excellent base for a family or friends looking to spend some quality time together and do some sightseeing in this stunning part of the province. The house has a well-equipped kitchen and dining area, providing a fantastic space to keep everyone together and prepare tasty meals while discussing the day’s highlights. After dining, why not take yourself into the cosy sitting room with an electric fire to add to the ambiance after a day out and about exploring. A second sitting room is also on offer and has a variety of books and a PlayStation to keep the young ones entertained; and there are also sofa beds for added flexibility regarding the sleeping arrangements. As the day draws to an end there are three good-sized bedrooms to retreat to. Outside you know that the children can play in safety in the enclosed rear garden while the grown-ups enjoy a well-earned drink on the patio. Head into Ballycastle town centre and sample the range of shops, restaurants and have a pint with the locals. Try your hand at a round of golf on the local course, get the ferry to Rathlin Island or visit the town’s Blue Flag beach, soak up the sun and see if you can spot Scotland on the horizon. You don’t have to venture far to see some of Northern Ireland’s main attractions, such as the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Bushmills Distillery. Northern Ireland is also the backdrop for many scenes in the popular television show Game of Thrones, so why not see how many of the locations you can find. With Belfast just over an hour away you don’t have to go far to go to be in the heart of the action. Take one of the hop-on, hop-off bus tours and discover the Titanic Museum and the Crumlin Road goal while absorbing the local culture.
