Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Northern Ireland - Apt 8-Harbour View Apartments

This is a newly built, luxury 2-bedroom ground floor apartment in Ballycastle

This apartment is situated on the seafront in Ballycastle on the world-renowned Antrim Coast. The apartment is centrally located in a small, gated courtyard across from the popular marina and beach. It is with in a minute's walk from everything that you will need for a great family holiday or a well-earned short break. From the apartment you can take an evening stroll along the beach, or walk in to the town centre where you will experience local hospitality and shopping.

In the immediate vicinity there are excellent local restaurants and pubs offering tantalising local delicacies and great craic!

The 18 hole golf course which is a few minutes away, overlooks Rathlin Island where the famous Scoto-Norman Nobel, Robert the Bruce, fled in 1306.

You must, of course, head due west from the apartment and visit one of the wonders of the world, the Giants Causeway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have travelled all over the South of Ireland 20 yrs ago, but decided this time to head North. Fantastic Scenery and the locals are really friendly. There is so much to see and do. Giants Causeway was amazing as was the Whiskey Factory at Bushmills.

I was one of 4 Adults staying in the Apartment, which was very modern and comfortable. No complaints...

Great location and facilities, excellent manager.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at this great Ballycastle location and Conor, the property manager, was easy to connect with and very helpful to get us settled. After one night, a pipe water burst and Conor was very responsive and accommodating by providing another apartment to cook and shower while they prepared another property for us to move into that same day.

The location is ideal for families with public park across the street and stores/cafes and restaurants within walking distance (on the same street). We had a car rental and drove to The Giant Causeway and Derry from Ballycastle and thought is is an ideal hub to visit Norther Ireland.

Would recommend to anyone wanting to explore the northern coast of Ireland.
