Make a holiday rental cottage or accommodation in County Antrim, Northern Ireland your home away from home

The wild coastal scenery of Northern Ireland, Neolithic monuments, timeless fishing villages, tranquil forests and sandy beaches of Country Antrim are an absolute delight to explore. County Antrim tourism too often revolves around the admittedly astonishing Giant’s Causeway, and although it should be on every sightseeing tour from County Antrim cottages, there is just so much to explore, even before you start to head into neighbouring County Down or County Antrim

Things to do in County Antrim, Northern Ireland

Time seems to have stood still for centuries in the Antrim countryside. The landscape is still wonderfully traditional and unspoilt, offering astonishingly beautiful rural regions for exploring. Walking, cycling and horse riding holidays in County Antrim are hugely popular, allowing you to really explore, and providing the perfect excuse for regular refreshment breaks in some of County Antrim’s pubs. There are also a vast range of golf courses in County Antrim, from the windswept links courses of the coast to the beautifully landscaped park courses. Wherever you take a County Antrim cottage, you will not be far from the first tee.

The coast and rivers of County Antrim are a great asset for Antrim tourism. The beaches, although windswept in autumn and winter, are glorious during the summer months, and the reliable winds make the coastline a particular favourite for sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing. The staggeringly dramatic coastline is one of the most memorable stretches of coastline to canoe along anywhere, and the fishing is outstanding, both in the sea and on the many rivers that carve the Antrim landscape.

There are a great range of individual attractions to explore from County Antrim houses to rent, the most famous of which is the awe-inspiring Giant’s Causeway. The sublime combination of staggering natural landscapes and engrossing folklore mean that no visitor to the Giant’s Causeway returns to their Antrim accommodation without a renewed love for the country. The Bushmills Distillery is also a great place to tour, especially for those with a penchant for Irish whiskey. There are also a great range of theme parks, theatres, museums, stately homes, pre-historic monuments, cathedrals, ancient castles and even a zoo to visit from any of the County Antrim cottages available. The castles of Dunluce and Carrickfergus are particularly worth exploration.

Home from home, beautiful cottage in Bushmills

5 of 5
Well kept and lovely cottage we had a great week here in Bushmills. The cottage is in the perfect location for exploring the Causeway Coast. Very central in Bushmills no need to take the car. Especially loved the walk from the cottage to the Giants Causeway and the walk to Dunluce Castle . The cottage has everything you need while away well stocked and cosy. We will be back/recommending for a break in Bushmills. The owner is very friendly and helpful thanks for everything!!!
