We experienced a wonderful holiday here. We received a very warm welcome from the owner with some lovely refreshments provided for us on our arrival. The cottage is in a beautiful location with attractive views of the Glendun valley below and at this time of year, delightful air displays by swallows and swifts outside the dining room window. The cottage is spacious, with lovely rooms and a very well equipped kitchen. The peaceful rural location was nonetheless well-placed for access to the stunning Antrim coast, providing you have your own transport. We especially enjoyed the causeway coastal path from Dunseverick Castle to the Giants Causeway and a visit to Rathlin Island to see the bird sanctuary and seal colonies. A visit to the waterfalls at the beautiful Glenariff forest park is also very worthwhile. We would highly recommend a stay at Drumfaskey Cottage.

Fantastic cottage and so peaceful, nice to waken up in the morning to the sound of the sheep in the valley. Host was wonderful and very friendly. Fresh soda bread with jam as a welcoming was a lovely touch as from Northern Ireland originally. Had all the amenities that you need for a 2 week stay and plenty of walks plus a short drive away from the beach. My family and I enjoyed it so much we are returning in 2023 for another 2 weeks.

About the neighbourhood
The Glens of Antrim have been recognised as a unique landscape and are officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This includes a fifty mile shoreline, forests, open grasslands, peat bogs and mountain upland rich in history and culture. A long history of settlement and war is marked in the dramatic landscape by prehistoric stone tombs, churches and castles that tell of an age gone by and are a delight to behold for both the enthusiast and passers by.
The best way to see this area is by car enabling you to stop at the many viewing spots and places of interest. Extensive literature on all local places is available in the cottage and of course on the web.Eileen is always delighted to discuss your itinerary with you and advise on the best directions or places to visit.
