    Travelers rated Fools Haven Thatched Cottage one of FlipKey's best .
    Our great thanks to you all - we are very proud!

    This gem of a thatched cottage is over 250 years old and is situated at the start of the Causeway Coast & Glens Route, opposite the Andrew Jackson Cottage and US Rangers Centre on the shores of Belfast Lough.
