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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

We live in a separate home next door to the Beachhouse. After checking guests in and helping with any travel plans or local information we will be available and contactable but will give guests as much privacy as they wish.

The Beachhouse is an old victorian house directly at the beach. It's also close to Mussenden Temple and not far from the Giant's Causeway. I stopped here on my travels along the Northern coast. It was a very stormy night and it was a very cosy and warm place to stay at. The kitchen is clean and nicely equiped. I would absolutely recommend staying there for a night.

Beach house hostel located on downhill beach, shops, cafes and restaurants are a short drive away. Rooms were spacious, wifi signal strong and communal areas/kitchen well equipped and clean. Staff were friendly and informed us of all we needed to know at check in.

Great location! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The house is positioned just below the Mussenden Temple. It made for an excellent walk after dinner. The house is quiet and the host welcoming and helpful. We were very pleased.

Charming shared house a few metres from a nice beach. The common kitchen is spacious and well-equipped and the common rooms are comfy. A nice place for a weekend in the norhtern part of Ireland.

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.
