Fuschia Cottage is a special place. Nestled a few minutes' walk from dramatic Torr Head on the stunning Antrim coast, this traditional 'clachan' cottage has been recently built and furnished to the highest standards. A wonderful bolthole whatever the season - light and airy in summer with vaulted ceilings and solid oak floors, and cosy in winter with its woodburner, comfy sofas and books.
Just 7 miles from Ballycastle and Cushendun, it is ideally placed to explore the Antrim Coast and Glens.

The space
This is a perfect romantic hideaway for two or an ideal holiday base for a small family or group of friends wanting to relax or explore the beautiful scenery of this corner of the Antrim coast. In July the wild fuschia hedges are a riot of colour and on a clear day in any season, the views from Torr Head across to the Mull of Kintyre, Jura, Islay and Rathlin Island are breathtaking. This is the most easterly point in Ireland, just 12 miles from Scotland, and sometimes it seems so close you feel you could swim across. The beautiful Murlough Bay and dramatic Fair Head are just a couple of miles to the north, while the vertiginous road south to Cushendun is not to be missed. The bustling town of Ballycastle with its colourful independent shops, great pubs and restaurants and wonderful sandy beach is just 15 minutes away. From there you can take the ferry to Rathlin for the day, or even to Islay if you're feeling adventurous. Alternatively, take the coast road west to Bushmills, the Giant's Causeway, Ballintoy harbour, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and Portrush with its great surf beaches and world-class golf course, which recently hosted the Open Championship. Game of Thrones fans can visit the many filming locations in the area.

Guest access
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, guests should park at the front of the cottage just past our front gate, tucked in tight to allow vehicles to pass. Please respect the privacy of our neighbours and avoid using the grounds beyond our garden. Please use the front green door as your main entrance and exit rather than the French windows that lead to the back garden.

The scenery surrounding the cottage is breathtaking and it's impossible to mention all the places that are worth visiting. But here are a few highlights that you shouldn't miss. Beautiful Murlough Bay, better known as Slaver's Bay to fans of Game of Thrones, is just 10 minutes drive away and from the top car park the walk across the top of Fair Head is stunning. Alternatively, you can park at the bottom car park and walk along to the little sheltered cove, which is lovely for a swim, or to the remains of the church which is a perfect picnic spot. I'd also recommend Glenarriff for a walk to the waterfalls, Cushendun (both of these are also GOT filming locations) and Waterfoot beach. Ballycastle has a great sandy beach with lovely views across to Rathlin. There are lots of good places to eat and drink in Ballycastle - Ursa Minor for great coffee, cakes and delicious homemade sourdough bread, O'Connor's for gambas pil pil and seafood platter, Morton's on the harbour for fish and chips, Harbour Bar and House of McDonnell for traditional Irish music and Thyme & Co for great lunches. The Salthouse, a new luxury hotel overlooking Ballycastle, is the perfect spot for some pampering in the spa or a special meal with a view. Or try a relaxing soak in the Seaweed Baths by the harbour. Further afield, Harry's Shack on Portstewart Strand is a must, and in Portrush, there's the Harbour, Ramore Head, Neptune and Prawn, the Mermaid and Basalt. You'll be spoilt for choice.

Hi. I'm a married mum of one who teaches Spanish and French. I'm loving being back in Northern Ireland after many years living and teaching in England and Spain. I hope you love our wee Irish cottage as much as we do.
