“Perfect lodge for a lovely break!”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Extremely welcoming, clean and spacious house that comfortably slept 6 of us. We were very impressed with the beautiful decor and the rooms were equipped with everything we could need including thoughtful extras like a fantastic coffee machine, a box of family games and even bodyboards in the guest shed! The location was very peaceful and ideal for exploring Castlerock, Portstewart and Portrush. Communication with the owner was extremely professional before, during and after our stay and we couldn't have been happier with our overall experience. We would definitely recommend Tara lodge and hope to stay again!

“Excellent accomodation”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a brilliant stay at Tara Lodge everything we needed for our stay was there and wi fi was great.So near to the beach which the kids enjoyed,very spacious and very clean. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine and two packets of biscuits which was a very nice touch as it was our wedding anniversary, would highly recommend Tara lodge and hope to return in the near future.

“A little bit of heaven in Castlerock”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This house has everything you need for a lovely little relaxing break away from home - located in a lovely quiet street close to the train station and some shops - the beach is also just a leisurely walk away.
The bedrooms are massive and i must say they went down a storm with our family of 8 especially the 2 ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms which were brilliant for my elderly parents and also elderly in laws as no stairs to climb :-)
The teenagers loved their bedroom which included a 2 seater sofa and coffee table as they used this to sit and watch tv when the "oldies" were downstairs watching telly and chatting
Really can't thank Diane enough for the lovely birthday balloon centre piece she left for my elderly mother as this just made her day - thank you so much
We all can't wait to come back and stay very soon x

“Another great family holiday in Castlerock”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Castlerock this year; we've been holidaying in Tara Lodge for a number of years, and it has provided the perfect location for our family holiday. Close to the beach in Castlerock, and within easy driving distance of all the North Coast has to offer.
Would highly recommend it.

“Fantastic Accommodation”
Reviewed 23 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Arriving late because of fog delays we were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and overall pleasant decor. We had a fantastic week walking miles exploring the coastline and best of all we had fantastic weather. Tara lodge was a comfortable home from home with lots of space, comfortable beds and good showers.
