About Etta Halliday

Belfast born and bred and currently living in another small fishing village with lots of history in Co Down. I love the rugged Co Antrim coastline just as much - particularly the great first gasp of 'north coast' sea air every visit - wonderfully restorative!

Etta Halliday purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Etta Halliday chose Northern Ireland

It's walking distance to the places I love most - Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle. I'm a 'Chronicles of Narnia' fan and if this landscape could inspire CS Lewis, it's inspirational for this writer too.

What makes this cottage unique

It's a home from home - for me, my family and it seems our guests love it just as much. I love that our little cluster of homes is surrounded by fields and hedgerows yet walk for just a handful of minutes and you're at the restaurants and stores in the village. Perfectly peaceful and perfectly positioned.

Great location

Thanks for a great stay in Bushmills. The house was perfect for our family of 4. The location was great to explore Giant's causeway and surroundings. Thank you for the milk and cookies upon arrival. Nice!

We have 3 small children and the house was perfectly equipped for us. The house is close to many amazing sights and Etta was a wonderful host.

A perfect house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a great location. I believe Etta, the owner, thought of everything, things often missing in other rentals we have had. For example, there were showers in both bathrooms and really good reading lights. The house had a nice patio and garden in the back. The area was extremely quiet and peaceful. It is within walking distance of the Bushmills distillery, an advantage if you are tasting, and grocery shopping. We loved the little town and had an amazing Sunday lunch at The French Rooms. Etta was very responsive from the very first contact. We were close to all the wonderful attractions of the area, such as the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. Really, we could have stayed in this house for a month. I highly recommend it.

Lovely cottage at the heart of the North Coast. Clean and well organized.

  • 5 of 5

My three adult children and I had a wonderful stay at the cottage. Everything was exactly as described or even better. The decor was simple and attractive. The bedrooms and baths were spacious and modern. The kitchen was completely fitted with appliances and utensils, and everything was well organized. The little town of Bushmills was at the centre of our north coast tours in a rented car. The town has a few good restaurants but don't wait too late! Etta provided a few things to eat when we arrived after hours. I would highly recommend this property.

Great location and wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

The property matches the description in regards to location - it's 10 min drive from the Giant's Causeway - and it has a well equipped kitchen. The bathrooms were good and the beds are comfortable. Etha was amazing - we had a fuse issue and she sent somebody to fix it right away. I would recommend it to my friends and it's a place I would stay again if I come back to the Giant's Causeway.

The restaurants close very early, so we drove to Tesla (supermarket) which is open until midnight. It is around 25 min from the property but worth it.

Bushmills is just one hour from Belfast International airport, yet it's another world. We're right at the heart of the stunning Causeway Coastal Route - the essential Irish journey. With nine breathtaking Glens of Antrim to cycle, walk or drive, Eagry Cottage is less than a handful of miles from the main attractions: it's just 2 miles to the Giant's Causeway (World Heritage Site), Portballintrae beach, Dunluce Castle, Royal Portrush Golf Course, great surfing, and we're right on the doorstep of the famous Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery - 'legally' making whiskey since 1608!

There are great restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and craft nooks just an easy, short stroll away as well as seaside towns, fishing villages, National Trust properties and tiny, peaceful harbors to visit.

Pony trekking, the Old Llammas Fair in Ballycastle (August), the North West 200 road race (motorbikes) and Bird Sanctuary on Rathlin Island are all within easy reach of the house.

Golf: Links golf is the game played on a course designed by mother nature with as many humps and bumps as you like with a view unequalled for it's beauty! At Eagry Cottage, we love to boast one of the word's top links courses almost on our doorstep. Royal Portrush - just 3 miles away and home to the 2012 Irish Open! ('Home' to Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell - GMac, Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington - if you have to ask.... you're not a golfer!)

The Royal County Down Course is easily within driving distance too, though by the time you've tested your skills on the marvellous Portstewart and Castlerock courses as well, we think you'll have enough travellers tales to tell of the game at it's best, along one of the world's most spectacular coastlines.

All courses have specific information on their respective websites - easy enough to find on the web.
