    The house is designed to help you make the most of your holiday time, focusing on relaxing and taking in the natural scenery. The living and kitchen/dining areas are free-flowing and mostly open plan, and combined with a cathedral ceiling with exposed oak beams (from which the boat used to hang), allows for a relaxing experience.

    Railway: Derry: 38.0 km
    Ferry: Larne http://www.portoflarne.co.uk/: 110.0 km
    From Derry, follow the directions north to Moville, along the west bank of the river Foyle. From Moville, follow the road to Greencastle, and through the village toward Greencastle golf club. Go past the entrance of the golf club for approximately 1.4km, passing 2 mobile home sites on left (one wooden, one regular), and one (regular) hidden on the right. The entrance to the Boathouse is on the right hand side of the road, with metal crafted gates. If you arrive at night, then it is marked by an orange streetlight on the right hand side. There are four other well-spaced houses in the area, but ours is distinctive and easily identified as the converted RNLI boathouse, just 15 metres from the water's edge - you can't miss it!

The boathouse offers a cosy equipment with a gorgeous view on the sea. Being located off the road (which is not frequently used) it offers a nice environment to reflect and enjoy the calmness. more

We stayed in the Boathouse for two nights in May and wished we could have stayed longer. It is next to the waters edge and is peaceful and relaxing, it has everything you need and watching the wildlife is joy.
