Holiday Rental House
O'Neill Cottage, Rockport is the perfect place to leave the world behind; nestled right beside the sea at the north end of Cushendun’s wide sandy beach, looking out to the Mull of Kintyre across the Irish Sea. The Georgian house dates back to 1813. Built by Lord General O’Neil as a hunting/bathing lodge, the two cottages were once the quarters of the Generals gilly and house servants. Our stables offer secure garaging for cycles and motor cycles. The cottage offers you the chance to relax on your own garden terrace, kick back by your own open fire or wonder at the ever changing seascape right outside your windows. The cottage has panoramic views and its own private outdoor space to connect you with the dramatic landscape. Relax in our garden, take a walk or explore further into village ...O'Neill Cottage, Rockport is the perfect place to leave the world behind; nestled right beside the sea at the north end of Cushendun’s wide sandy beach, looking out to the Mull of Kintyre across the Irish Sea. The Georgian house dates back to 1813. Built by Lord General O’Neil as a hunting/bathing lodge, the two cottages were once the quarters of the Generals gilly and house servants. Our stables offer secure garaging for cycles and motor cycles. The cottage offers you the chance to relax on your own garden terrace, kick back by your own open fire or wonder at the ever changing seascape right outside your windows. The cottage has panoramic views and its own private outdoor space to connect you with the dramatic landscape. Relax in our garden, take a walk or explore further into village and beyond. The bedrooms custom-crafted beds offer luxury mattress, Hungarian goose down duvets & pillows, and 600 percale soft and crisp organic bed linen hand choosen by Secret Linens. Hand-woven throws and cushions complete the luxury welcome. The bathrooms include showers with rainmaker showerheads and local organic seaweed products. The lounge/dining area in the cottage offers you the chance to read, relax, listen to music, play board games or simply sit and look out across the dramatic Irish Sea....you may spot a pod of dolphins and look out for the seals .... (the dining room table doubles up as a full size pool table too!!). A short stroll away is the pretty seaside village of Cushendun hosting the famous Red Caves (Game of Thrones) and Mary McBrides (once the smallest pub in Ireland) and further along the coast Cushendall . On all other sides we’re surrounded by sea, beach, cliff, forest, gorse, heather and hills.  Fair Head, Torr Head and the magical Murlough Bay. Within a short radius of Cushendun Bay we have ancient forests, the Giants Causeway, Gaelic Crosses, medieval castles, historic houses, wonderful historic gardens, breathtaking views and our special corner of the Irish Sea with its soaring views over the McMillan Race to the Scottish Western Isles. Enjoy a hike on foot or trek on horseback; a unhurried game of golf at Cushendall or Ballycastle, or challenge yourself by taking on the world leading courses at Portrush and Portstewart; or a peaceful morning sitting on the rocks by the sea waiting for cod or pollock to bite. A short distance along the coast you’ll find surfing or swimming in the bracing Atlantic in Benone and followed by a slow lunch in front of a log fire in Harry’s Shack on the beach in Portstewart. A hearty dinner just a short walk away in the seafood bistro ‘The Little Black Door’ at Mary McBrides. Soaking up culture, art, music, poetry, from small galleries and vibrant local festivals. The landscape changes from bright sunshine yellow to dusky heather purple with the seasons, and above us is a never-ending sky that hosts sunsets, storms, stars and the northern lights. Wake late, take your fill of the clean Glens air, eat a leisurely breakfast. Wander the countryside and watch the landscape change with the weather and light. This is the perfect place to set a subdued pace and let the busy everyday fade away. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 93634More
