Holiday Rental House
A self-catering accommodation which was awarded a 4-star rating from Tourism Northern Ireland, Downhill Seaside Cottage is located across the road from Downhill Beach. We offer visitors an ocean view that is unobstructed by plants, trees and hedging; you can see the sea even from the downstairs bedroom. Along with direct access to a free public carpark and a quick 2-min walk to the beach, we are favourably positioned compared to most other guest accommodations in the area. Downhill Beach was used in the filming of Game of Thrones as Dragonstone, and is a Blue Flag Award Beach and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering opportunities for nature walks and sightings of bird life amongst a backdrop of cascading waterfalls, cliffs, extensive sand dunes, and the prominent Mussenden Temp...A self-catering accommodation which was awarded a 4-star rating from Tourism Northern Ireland, Downhill Seaside Cottage is located across the road from Downhill Beach.
