Downhill Beachhouse is a Victorian Villa on the Downhill Beach by the Mussenden Temple Estate. We are a self-catering guesthouse with 9 bedrooms + guest kitchen, living, dining rooms. 7 rooms share 5 bathrooms on landings + 2 rooms are en-suite.
The Beachhouse is a restored Victorian villa fronting onto Ireland's longest beach. The interior is casually elegant and artistic. Historical features such as original working fireplaces, polished wood floors, and sash windows give the house it's charming character. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering, the living room is full of toys, books and games for young guests, and there are always buckets, spades, & body boards to help you enjoy the beach.
Our concept is to give our guests use of a full house's facilities for less than the average price of a B&B. Guests have full use of a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable lounge/living room, dining room, and reading nook overlooking the sea. Once checked in guests can come and go as they please. There is one private parking spot per room. The front garden and picnic area are for guest use. Wifi access is free and there is a computer for guest use. The laundry room may be used for a small charge.

I am an artist and potter who loves to travel. My husband William and I have run our restored Victorian villa, Downhill Beachhouse, as tourist accommodation for 18 years. We love welcoming guests to our corner of Northern Ireland. We are new to Air BnB but you can also find reviews of Downhill Beachhouse on trip advisor.
We live next door to the Beachhouse in a separate space so guests have independence yet we are nearby when wanted.
