Why Nicci Millar chose Portrush
Copperpot Cottage is a traditional-style Irish stone cottage and picture-postcard pretty. It's in the heart of peaceful countryside - you wake up to only the sound of the birds singing. Yet, just a mile and a half away is Portrush. The beaches are all soft sand with magical views towards the Scottish Isles and the coastal drives are spectacular. It's a lovely part of the world.

Lovely cottage for a family holiday
We had plenty of room for our family of four in this lovely cottage. Located just outside of Portrush and Portstewart, it was a short drive to local attractions. The cottage was very comfortable and well appointed and we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay again!
Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely to welcome you to Copperpot Cottage. We're glad it had everything your family needed and we'd be delighted to welcome you back when you are next in this part of the world!
Had a wonderful time, Nicci was very friendly and gave us a very warm welcome. Copperpot cottage had everything we needed and was perfect for our little one. Cannot recommend it highly enough, we hope to be back!
Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure to have you all stay. We’re delighted you had fun on the North Coast and got to catch up with relatives and we really hope to welcome you back one day soon.
Enjoyed our time with friends in your lovely cozy and comfortable home.
We enjoyed a few days spending time with friends and exploring the area. This home offered a wonderful opportunity to enjoy our evenings together sharing a meal 'at home' and relaxing.
We are so pleased that the cottage felt like home and you had a relaxing stay, enjoying good food and great company. Thank you for the kind words and for taking the time to review us.
It was the perfect place for us
Nicole was so wonderful and the house so awesome.We had a wonderful time.
It was a pleasure welcoming you to Copperpot Cottage and we’re so happy you had a wonderful stay.
Lovely welcome. At Home.
All that we needed and more - just the two of us staying over but you could tell there was ample room for 6. All you needed supplied - from machines to cooking... and if you did need something in addition, Nicci was not long away.
It was a pleasure to have you stay and we're so glad Copperpot Cottage had everything you needed to feel at home.
Lovely family cottage
Nicci was great, cottage is very nice and well stocked. Great location. the cottage was cold for the first couple of days, as the weather was bitter, but as soon as we contacted Nicci she sorted it.
Great to hear you enjoyed the cottage and its location. We hope to welcome you back one day.
We’re roughly an hour's drive from Belfast and 3 hours from Dublin.

Portrush Harbour: There's a wide choice of eateries at the Ramore Complex.
For Summer season family fun, try Barry's amusements or Waterworld.
The East Strand, West Strand and Whiterocks beaches are all in the heart of Portrush.
Nearby Portstewart strand has a beach you can park on and a great eatery - Harry's Shack.
Here are some of the big local attractions:
Giant's Causeway: Legend has it that the giant, Finn McCool, created this geological marvel. It is a World Heritage Site and now has an impressive visitors centre to match. Tip: car parking charges might take your breath away, so park across the road at the Heritage Railway (also worth a ride).
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge: Spanning a chasm eighty feet deep, it is an exhilarating experience peering down through the wooden slats into the clear waters below. The coastal path offers stunning views of Rathlin and the Scottish Isles, as well as a noisy seabird colony.
Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery: Join a tour of the distillery to observe the craft of traditional Irish whiskey making and sample the goods too.
Ballintoy Harbour: A picture-postcard pretty harbour with a pocket-sized tea room and magical views. Much-loved by walkers, this is the most celebrated part of the Causeway Coast.
Whitepark Bay Beach: The spectacular sandy beach forms a white arc between two headlands including the tiny salmon-fishing village of Portbraddan. The beach is backed by ancient dunes rich in bird and animal life. Enjoy lazy summer days, picnics, making sandcastles and long walks along this truly beautiful beach.
Portrush is well known for its three sandy beaches, the West Strand, East Strand and White Rocks (blue flag), just a mile and a half from the cottage. They are popular with surfers and have several surf schools.
From personal experience, the bustling Ramore Wine Bar offers a broad, well-priced menu (children welcome) and 55 Degrees North is a good option for afternoon tea with great views (children welcome). Further afield, Tartine in Bushmills offers delicious food and an interesting wine list.
