Abbeydene House is a beautiful Victorian mansion set in a quiet location overlooking Belfast Lough. It was built in 1850 and enjoys a great history when, in 1945, General Dwight Eisenhower visited the House. Your hosts, Tim and Ethy Clifford, will ensure that your stay will be enjoyable and comfortable. If you do visit us, you will be impressed by the convenience to the many beautiful places available for your interest - the Odyssey Arena for concerts, cinema and restaurants (8 minutes), the Waterfront concert hall (8 minutes), Belfast City centre (10 minutes). The Causeway Coastal route starts near Abbeydene - this will take you North along the beautiful Antrim Coast road to the Giant’s Causeway.
