The cottage is situated right across from the beach and the perfect location for a nice family visit. We have a 2 year-old baby and loads to carry so were relieved to know that all the rooms and the toilet is downstairs. The owners are nice and friendly and have thought of everything, from travel cots and extra mattress for the baby, to a welcome kit with a comprehensive visitor’s guide. The place is tidy and spotless and the kitchen cupboards well stocked. All in all a kid-friendly place in a relaxing location.

I stayed at the cottage around the May weekend holiday period. Summer is approaching and this house is the perfect location to be, with the ocean view and nearby natural scenery. The resort feel reminds me of San Diego!

Perfect location, friendly hosts and stylish interior design. The rooms are downstairs so quite convenient for elderly visitors - I will come back next time with my in-laws.

About us

A self-catering accommodation which was awarded a 4-star rating from Tourism Northern Ireland, Downhill Seaside Cottage is located across the road from the renowned Downhill Beach; it offers visitors unbeatable ocean views, immediate beach access as well as plenty of beach activities (such as surfing and kite surfing) and hiking possibilities. Downhill Beach was used in the filming of Game of Thrones as Dragonstone, where the Seven Idols of Westeros were burned and Melisandre, flames dancing into the night sky, proclaimed: “For the night is dark and full of terrors.”

Downhill is a Blue Flag Award Beach and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering opportunities for nature walks and sightings of bird life amongst a backdrop of cascading waterfalls, cliffs, extensive sand dunes, and the prominent Mussenden Temple, one of the most photographed buildings in Northern Ireland and viewable from the living room windows.
