Adventure Awaits

This luxurious property sits at the cusp between two of Europe’s best driving routes; The Causeway Coastal Route and the Wild Atlantic Way. Everything you need for the perfect stay is right here: relaxation, vibrancy, culture, adventure and history this area is steeped in it.

A 15 minute drive from the farmhouse in one direction will bring you to the Magilligan Ferry and for a 10 euro fee per car the ferry will transport you to the beautiful picturesque peninsula of Inishowen set in county of Donegal in a matter of minutes - here you can sample fresh seafood, rugged beaches and cosy Irish pubs with traditional Irish music. A 15 minute drive in the other direction will bring you to Derry/Londonderry City of Culture, where you can catch an array of events such as The Foyle Maritime Festival or The Halloween Carnival (voted the best place in the world for Halloween by USA Today.) The city also has unique history which you can explore at every corner and it played a focal point in the ‘Northern Ireland Troubles’ ‘World War 2’ and ‘The Spanish Armada’.

Game of Thrones fan?

Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Hop into your car and drive 10-30 minutes and you will find yourself at one of the following locations:


The plateau and steep cliffs extend for over six miles across the peninsula of Magilligan, dominating the skyline over the villages of Bellarena, Downhill, Castlerock and Benone beach. It appeared as the Dothraki Grasslands in season five when Daenerys Targaryen was rescued by her dragon, Drogon, while fleeing from the Sons of the Harpy in the fighting pits of Meereen.

Downhill Beach

Located in the very north of Northern Ireland, the beach is part of a seven mile stretch of sand offering a wealth of activities including water sports and scenic walks. Above the beach is the prominent Mussenden Temple, one of the most photographed buildings in Northern Ireland. In Game of Thrones, Downhill Beach appeared in season two when Stannis Baratheon rejects the Seven Gods of Westeros and allows Melisandre to burn their effigies as an offering to the Lord of Light.

Dark Hedges

The Dark Hedges is one of the most photographed areas in Northern Ireland and a popular attraction for tourists from across the world. This beautiful avenue of beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the 18th century and intended to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to Gracehill House. The site featured in Game of Thrones series two, doubling as the Kingsroad which young Arya Stark travelled on in the back of a cart along with Yoren, Gendry and Hot Pie - all new recruits for the Night's Watch.

Portstewart Strand

This area is owned and managed by the National Trust - sweeping along the edge of the North Coast, it is one of Northern Ireland's finest beaches with views of Inishowen headland and Mussenden Temple perched atop the cliffs. The strand doubled as the coast of Dorne in season five of Game of Thrones when Jaime Lannister was tasked by his sister Cersei to bring her daughter Myrcella back to King's Landing.

Ballintoy Harbour

Ballintoy is a village on the coast of Co Antrim with the small fishing harbour located at the end of a narrow, steep road down Knocksaughey hill which passes by the entrance to Larrybane and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. It features in season two of Game of Thrones when Theon Greyjoy returns home to Lordsport Harbour.

Don’t fancy driving - the town of Limavady has everything you need to enjoy a true authentic Irish stay. Shops, pubs, restaurants and luxurious spa venues this property really is at the heart of it all!
