“Why cant i live here!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Tara Lodge is the perfect holiday rental for just about everyone. Booking the property could not be easier and you are kept up to date throughout the entire process until the morning of your arrival (including email updates of events in the local area).

The house is incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated and has everything you could ever think of. I have been staying in Castlerock since i was a child and Tara Lodge is and will remain my favourite holiday rental in that area. The location is perfect being a 5 minute walk from Castlerock beach and a host of local shops including a CostCutters, Butchers, Bakery and chip shop. Also close by there are a host of forest walks, Downhill and Benone Beaches, Hezlett House and The Mussenden Temple (plenty to see and do all close by).

Tara Lodge is a must if you plan to stay in Castlerock!

“Beautiful house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just got back from a lovely week in N. Ireland. We were 8 staying at Tara Lodge (myself, my husband, our 4 children aged 6-15, and my parents). The house is beautiful and with everything you will need wew even had chocolates and wine waiting for us on arrival. The location was perfect, in a quite, very clean area just minutes from a beautiful beach, a small centre with pubs, fish and chip shop, bakery, shop and more. The train station was also just a few minutes walk away. We took the train to Belfast and Londonderry. It is well worth staying here and I would go back again without hesitation. The house is on the Causeway coastline and there is so much to see nearby. Downhill demesne/Mussenden Temple is worth a visit.

“Another great stay at Tara Lodge.”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Once again we had an excellent stay at this 5 star property.
The property has all modern conveniences, including satellite TV and wifi. It is beautifully furnished and is a real home from home. It is situated close to all of the North Coast attractions.
The famous Castlerock Golf Club is a short distance away and is highly recommended.
