    Beach was beautiful & only 5 mins walk from the property. Dog friendly places close by, as well as the best pint of Guinness at Brenda’s we had all week.

  • "The house was bright, homely and well equipped."

    The owner of the house was very attentive and helpful. We were a party of 13 - 8 adults and 5 children we all had enough space to do our own thing as well as all being together. I would recommend Seashells highly.

  • "Loved staying at seashells, 12 family members shared this roomy, comfortable and lovely holiday home."

    Everything has been thought of and if it wasnt already there we asked and the hosts Neville and Donna quickly provided it. They were friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome. It's a great base for your holiday near the beach and central to other tourist destinations. I would definitely recommend Seashells for a holday.

  • "Wow..."

    what a home.... everything is absolutely beautiful, and the location was just perfect with only a short walk to the beach. The owners are lovely. Neville is so kind and left over a bbq when a few extra friends arrived to enjoy an evening. We had the best time last week and after a year of Covid robbing us all of making memories last year, we feel this week has more than recovered them. Thank you Neville for everything.. we will be back...

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend."

    . Lovely spacious house for groups. Open plan kitchen / dining is ideal for socialising and plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The hosts were lovely and we will definitely return in the future.

  • "Could not have picked a better house for our holiday, photos can't do justice to the level of comfort and cleanliness we found."

    Spacious and bright, and the large bedrooms don't compromise the living area. Unusual in a house sleeping a large number, there is plenty of room in both dining and lounge areas. Totally enclosed garden also a bonus and walking distance to the beautiful Castlerock beach. Owner very helpful and pleasant - thank you!

  • "Neville was an exceptional host for his house."

    The house had all the amenities we required and extra. It was cleaned spotless on arrival which was reassuring due to Covid. We were located very close to a beautiful beach and shops restaurants and only a short drive into portrush. This house would definitely be somewhere we would consider visiting again in the future. Thank you
