  • "From the moment Eileen met us at the door with the keys we felt right at home here."

    Lovely house, cozily furnished and so comfortable, with fantastic views of the beach from the picture window in the living room. Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne is practically across the street, and we loved having such easy access to its beautiful grounds and well maintained walking paths. The house is just a few miles from some of the most spectacular stops on the Causeway Coastal Route (Dunluce Castle, Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge), and we had a great time exploring the area and its many wonders. There are a couple of good dining options in Castlerock (the Meatbox makes amazing burgers), and plenty of options nearby for grocery shopping if you prefer to prepare your own meals. A wonderful experience overall, would be happy to stop here again. Highly recommended.

  • "Excellent holiday accommodation."

    Good location for visits to sites along the North East Coast - Giant’s Causeway, Rathlin Island, Bushmills Distillery and locations associated with Game of Thrones programme. Castlerock is a lovely small village close to beach. Coleraine is only a few miles, away with all the facilities of a large town. Would recommend a train ride to Derry/Londonderry from Castlerock. Eileen the housekeeper was wonderful with lots of advice on ‘what to do’ in the area. Great holiday.

  • "We had a wonderful 4 days in the Seaview Apartment."

    (24th to 27th April 2023) Eileen, our host, was extremely helpful and accommodating to any request we had. The house was spotless and had a terrific view and was bright and airy. The heating system was easy to work and the kitchen had modern equipment and everything you needed. Eileen provided a welcome pack which was a lovely touch. The furniture and decor were of high quality and very appropriate to the location. Our dog, Shadow, settled in well and it was great to have the enclosed garden at the back. All in all, a lovely holiday house/apartment in a great location overlooking Castlerock beach. We would have no problem in recommending Seaview to anyone. Arlene Haslett

  • "Beautiful home and just perfect for our stay."

    Amazing sea views, the photos don’t do this justice. Stunning location with friendly locals. Eileen was fantastic and we really appreciated the lovely treats for us and our dog. Thank you again, we will be back Mary

  • "A lovely home from home with everything you could possibly need."

    Beautifully furnished and comfortable. And pet friendly too. Warm and cosy with super views. The log burner was great, although the house heats up really quickly and easily anyway. Excellent location near the beach, village, train station and lovely walk to Mussenden Temple. Suitable for a couple or small family. (The back door entrance is directly in to the single bedroom so couldn’t really be used if that bedroom is occupied.) Not a big problem. It was perfect for us as a couple with dog. Eileen, the housekeeper, was great. Very welcoming and couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating. Also a wealth of local knowledge. We would definitely recommend this property and wouldn’t hesitate to return for another stay.

  • "An excellent clean and spacious property in a great location."

    Short walk to the beach and not much further to shops and cafes. House is great for a family holiday and Castlerock feels just a bit quieter and upmarket than some of the other resort towns on this beautiful coast. House has all you need including a genuinely friendly and very helpful host Eileen who does a great job on behalf of the owners. A great holiday location.

    Spacious and spotlessly clean. Had everything we needed with the added bonus we could take our dog. Nice outdoor seating area to enjoy the good weather. Fantastic views from the upstairs living area over Portstewart and Castlerock beach. Eileen really helpful with local area information and welcome pack (including treats for our dog). Would highly recommend. Great stay.

  • "Seaview, Castlerock is a fabulous holiday home."

    The quality and high standard of cleanliness is first class and it felt like a home from home stay. Located near the beachfront, the house has great scenic views of the sea which can be appreciated from the large glass fronted lounge whilst you relax in front of a roaring fire. Bliss! Beautiful holiday hotspots are anything from 10 minutes to an hour's drive away travelling many coastal routes. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely return. The Housekeeper Eileen provides a very warm welcome and arrival basket of treats.

  • "This is a great house from which to explore the north coast of Northern Ireland and beyond."

    There is everything in the house you could need, it is very clean and the views of the beach from the living room are amazing. The village is quiet with a few coffee shops, a butcher, bakery, chocolate shop and a Spar, as well as a surf/beach shop but that’s it, no seaside trappings - we liked that but it may not suit all. Good train service to Belfast and Londonderry too, if you want a day off from the car. Lovely house and gorgeous village. Huge beach that is patrolled by lifeguards.

  • "The house at Castlerock was quite spectacular, in particular the view of Portstewart strand from the living space, which the photographs did not do justice."

    The house was immaculately presented, and every need that we may have had in terms of kitchen facilities, bedding, entertainment etc was provided for. The house is ideally located, no more than 3-4 minutes walk from the beach, and a similar distance from amazing looped walks through Downhill Forest, Mussenden Temple and Bishops Palace. There was even storage outside for our bicycles, wetsuits etc. We would highly recommend, and hope to return.
