About the property

4 Bed Stunning Waterfront Property to sleep 8 in tranquil surroundings-Redcastle

The Shore Front Redcastle: As its name suggests, this truly superb, luxury holiday home is located at the water's edge on the western shore of Lough Foyle, along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.

The extensive deck area to the front takes full advantage of the panoramic sea views - its loungers and outdoor furniture makes an ideal alfresco dining/living area. Watch the family of seals playing on the rocks just below or simply relax in this spectacular setting.

The interior of the house is equipped and furnished to the highest standards. All bedrooms face the sea (two have balconies) The main living room has a full-length glazed wall - here you can relax on the indoor loungers and gaze towards the mouth of the lough and beyond to the Atlantic Ocean. A joy from the moment you open the front door, the Shore Front oozes a confident, comfortable sense of style. This is luxury self catering as it should be.

Children's Activities: There's so much to enjoy roaming around ShoreFront in the garden and along the small beach at the ShoreFront, from finding crabs in the rockpools to collecting mussels (Mum or Dad might do the cooking part:)) Kids can collect countless sea shells or just simply wave out to the family of seals which make regular appearances in front of the house.

To get out of the house, children can enjoy Leisureland - an indoor heated fun park located less than 5 minutes drive from ShoreFront; there's also a little playground by the water in Moville (7 minutes drive) and another good one in Muff (10 minutes drive).

Preferential rates are also offered to guests to avail of the swimming pool in the Redcastle Hotel swimming pool and spa (2 minutes drive).

There are a number of fine cinemas, bowling alleys and indoor play zones in the City of Derry (20 minutes drive).

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Why Yvonne Mitchell chose Culineen

We built our holiday home as a true 'get away from it all' on the shores of Lough Foyle with its ever changing views. Inishowen is a stunning area in Ireland which has truly welcoming locals with a lovely relaxed attitude to life. We found that there were very few holiday homes offering a true 'home from home' with a luxurious touch so we very much focused on creating something very unique which is very private and yet not remote. We hadn't factored in often daily visits from the family of seals but it just adds to the whole experience!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the outset the Shorefront was impressive... driving down to the main house you get the feeling of peace and tranquility one hopes for in a holiday home... a time to reflect and take in the experience. The house itself is beautifully decorated with the highest finishes, every need was catered for, from a coffee machine to unlimited toys for our kids, we didnt have to worry about a thing while we were there. A wonderful deck that overlooks the sea.... seriously, what more could one ask for.... The lady that welcomed us to the house was fantastic and very accommodating, nothing was to much trouble for her. Safety is not even a concern and not once did we have to worry or feel uneasy. We enjoyed our time there and by the end of the holiday, we had a feeling of sadness to leave but knew we would be back again. If you are reading this and considering the shorefront as a destination... dont think further, just book and thank me later! :)

Exceptional holiday home in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

What a great choice! Our family (party of 7 with older children/students) had a perfect time at the Shorefront, a truly beautiful holiday home situated in a private and tranquil location right at the edge of the water with paramount views of the sea, bay and shore. This well designed vacation home offers the ultimate in comfort with elegance and the luxury of a huge outdoor patio (wooden deck with high quality outdoor furniture and gas grill as well as a perfectly maintained hot tub). The house is tastefully furnished with care and equipped with every comfort, inviting you to share its cozy atmosphere in every room! The open kitchen is the perfect place to come together and sit and talk....And finally, the whole Inishowen Peninsula is awesome and definitely worth a visit, with its picturesque villages (Moville is about 5min drive - with a supermarket and don't miss "The Clock", great pub at Market Square!!) And just f.y.i.: Many Game of Thrones filming locations along the North Coast about an hour drive ;-) - Thank you so much for everything to the owner and housekeeper, we definitely want to come again!!!

Memories are made of Holidays like These!

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent 3 weeks there we didn't want to leave The Shorefront.

The Shorefront provides everything that one needs for the most relaxing, stress free holiday. Children and adults alike will find lots to do but then there's always the choice of doing absolutely nothing and enjoying the views from the house. The house is wonderfully equipped and has plenty of information on what's going on in the area. Attention to detail is obvious as the house is finished to a very high standard and immaculate throughout, giving a real home from home feel. It's proximity to the beach makes for hours of rock pooling and of course collecting mussels to steam is a must!

The owners and their local contact were only a phone call away and most helpful with any questions we had.

We look forward to visiting The Shorefront next year and would have no hesitation in recommending the house to any visitor wanting to explore Donegal/Northern Ireland. The surrounding area is just stunning and we have very special memories of a wonderful family holiday at The Shorefront.

This was the first time I rented a house while visiting Ireland instead of staying in B&Bs and I could not have picked a more beautiful place to stay. The views were spectacular and it was perfect as a base to do day trips from. Everything was clean, well-maintained and comfortable. I would definately recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in this area.

Holiday review

  • 5 of 5

The location and house were stunning. The views over Lough Foyle were constantly changing and the visits by the family of seals each day were enjoyed by all. The property was extremely well cared for and facilities were first rate. The house was a great starting point for touring around both Donegal and into Northern Ireland. Restaurants in the area were excellent. I would certainly recommend this property.
