Where do we begin? The time we spent here at St Columbs Cottages was so enjoyable, start to finish. Everything from Susan's sweet hospitality and help to the clean, comfortable, conveniently located cottages all made for the perfect place to ring in the New Year. We will certainly come back!! Thank you Susan
WOW was our first thought as we walked in to this fantastic cottage and we wasn't disappointed in and around the cottage every time you walked in. Everything was spotless and comfortable home from home. Felt rural but everything you needed was within easy reach less than 15 mins to the Giants Causeway and coastal route. Would recommend this cottage it was a great find. Thank you x
These cottages live up to their description! They are NEW and they are LUXURIOUS. Every room is very tastefully decorated, all the amenities are modern, and the furnishings are of high quality. Our group of 3 adults, 2 children, and 1 infant found Cottage #3 to be a perfect size for our weeklong holiday. The downstairs master suite is quite spacious, even with the travel-cot set up for the baby.
The location along the North Antrim Coast is ideal; there is so much to see and do in this area. We never had to drive far with our kids to find fun, low-cost activities (the Causeway, coastal walks, and castles were their favorites), and we enjoyed great days out, every day of our holiday. During the evenings after each day of sightseeing, we enjoyed family-times together in our comfortable cottage. In the closets we found toys and books which entertained the kids, and on the shelves we found DVDs and books which the whole family enjoyed. Also, the 100-acre wood is so lovely, we could have spent our week just exploring on-site!
The owners/managers Susan and Georgene are simply the best. Before our travels they responded quickly to all our phone, text, and email inquiries, giving us confidence that we had chosen the right accommodation for our family trip. Immediately upon our arrival, their welcome made us feel at ease and at home. In addition to the excellent cottage furnishings, Susan and Georgene stocked the cottage & kitchen with a few extras that they knew would make our first days there even more care-free. We have had pleasant stays at other self-catering cottages before, but St. Columbs is definitely the finest and best-stocked of the holiday homes we've known.
We were lucky to be the first to book for the busy season in July when we wanted to travel. We did enough research to find that, even during this high season, St Columbs is amazingly comparable pricewise to other 3-bedroom options in Northern Ireland. But we definitely received more than an excellent value for our money; Susan and Georgene give attention to the details, going above the call of duty, to ensure that their renters receive first-class customer service. I'm glad we did not hesitate to book our holiday with St. Columbs; this is now our first choice for a Northern Ireland getaway. Thank you, Susan and Georgene!
My husband and I stayed in cottage 3 for a week in early May. The cottage is truly first class and finished to an exceptionally high standard with everything we needed to enjoy a lovely week with our nine month old daughter. We used the downstairs ensuite bedroom and found it very roomy with plenty of space for the provided travel cot. The living areas are comfortable and beautifully fitted out, the décor is bright and modern. The kitchen has all the modern appliances you could need, everything is brand new. There are two further bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs, all are spacious and of the same high standard as our room was. The rear garden of the cottage is enclosed and would be an ideal area for children to play in.
The location of the cottage is perfect for exploring all the attractions the North Coast has to offer, we visited the Old Bushmills Distillery (literally just a few minutes drive away), the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, Ballycastle, Portballintrae, Portrush, Coleraine, Portstewart, Castlerock and the Dark Hedges.
The woodland adjacent to the cottage is lovely for a walk and Susan could not have been more welcoming.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone considering a stay in the area, it was spotless and beautifully finished - you really won’t be disappointed. We will definitely be back!

Within a 10 minute drive you can visit the local seaside towns of Portrush, Portstewart and Ballycastle where you can take the ferry across to Rathlin Island. At the west of the island is the renowned RSPB Seabird Centre, where puffins, guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes can be viewed during the summer months and in Mill Bay there is a colony of seals.
Close by there are 8 golf courses. The most famous of these courses is Royal Portrush Golf Club which is hosting the Irish Open 2012 from the 28th June to 1st July.
The North Coast hosts many high profile events each year such as the world's fastest motorcycle race, The North West 200, in May; the RNLI Portrush Raft Race in June; the N.I Milk Cup for junior footballers in July where many international footballers are present; the Auld Lammas fair in August and the N.I International Air show in September.
Explore the Causeway Coastal Route which is an outstanding scenic drive and visit the Glens of Antrim with their beautiful views, nature reserve and spectacular waterfalls.
The capital city of Belfast is approximately one hour by car or train from Ballymoney and is well worth a visit. The newly opened Titanic Belfast is an unmissable visit in any tour of Northern Ireland. It is located in the heart of Belfast, on the slipways where RMS Titanic was built. Inside the building, visitors will re-live the entire Titanic story from her birth in Belfast to the fateful maiden voyage and her eventual discovery on the seabed.
