5 Star Indeed
My family & I (husband & 2 teen boys) spent 4 relaxing nights at this very large, serene, scenic home during the month of July. The hosts were welcoming & accommodating. The location was perfect for doing everything we wanted to do in Northern Ireland & is relatively close to all of the popular destinations such as The Giant’s Causeway, the Rope Bridge, the Dark Hedges, Belfast, Derry & others. My kids both had their own bedrooms with a TV (no fighting👏🏻), allowing my husband & I to relax in the evening while finishing up Ted Lasso after our busy day. The property is vast & beautiful with plenty of sheep all around & world-class views of the Sperrin Mountains. Sadly, we’ll be downgrading when we return to our home in the US.

So comfortable and welcoming
We cannot speak highly enough of the house. It was so comfortable and welcoming. So spacious. High quality. Jamese and his family have set up an impressive place at Glenshane. We did not see the sheep this time but will be back we hope! One of sheep dogs came to say hello. We really did not want to go home. Thank you!

Breathtaking Farmhouse Experience
The photos of this lovely farmhouse don't do it justice. The bucolic views from this hilltop property will take your breath away. During our visit, we woke up to hot air balloons floating across the quiet landscape. The home is extremely clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need, especially in the spacious kitchen. But the best part is the host. Jamese is gracious, welcoming and a showman of a shepherd who excels at storytelling. Do not miss an opportunity to attend his sheepdog demonstration. It was one of the highlights of our family's two-week adventure across Ireland and left us with many great memories.

Glenshane country house
Beautiful house. Finished to such a high standard. Everything sparklingly clean. Loved our stay. Highly recommend to anyone. My 2 year old loved watching the chickens and ducks from the garden. Very kind and thoughtful of the owners to leave out toys for him to play with which he loved. Highlight was the delonghi coffee machine also! Thanks and hope to be back soon

Amazing house!
Stayed for a week. 2 adults and 4 kids. The house is luxurious, modern, spacious and decorated to very high standard with luxury extras such as a jacuzzi bath, American fridge, coffee maker etc . Can't fault the house at all. Location is a great central point for exploring Northern Ireland. A short drive into the town of Maghera for food shopping, take aways etc The views from the house are stunning. The area is beautiful and very peaceful. Felt very safe in this house. Would highly recommend Glenshane House. We fully intend to make a return visit in the future. Thanks Katie and Jamese.

Beautiful House with stunning views!!! 5 star!!!
Myself, husband & 4 children stayed at Glenshane Country House for 4 nights & what an experience! The house is just beautiful, so spacious & luxurious, even better in 'real life". What struck us was the cleanliness of the property & how comfy the beds were, we couldn't get out of them! Everything in the house is finished to a very high standard & attention to detail is second to none. Every utensil is at your fingertips and there's even a proper coffee-making machine which I indulged in! Jamese is a fantastic host, so hospitable and welcoming and there to help with anything. The views are stunning and the area's so peaceful yet everywhere is accessible & a short drive away. We've stayed in many properties but this one is top of the list, even our kids didn't want to go home, they had such a brilliant time asking 'when are we going back!' You won't regret staying here, our only regret was that our stay was too short but we'll definitely be back! Thank you Jamese.
