  • This is an absolutely stunning beach house that is made even lovelier by the homely touches! Fresh home baked bread welcomed us along with some cake, candles and a birthday banner as I had told Doreen we were coming down for a belated birthday break! Honestly can’t reccomend Doreen as a host or the property more, it’s in a brilliant location, is so clean and homely, and was just fab! Will definitely be back :)

  • Where can I start, Doreen was the best host I have ever met, she took the time to show us the apartment and explain how to use everything. There was a home made bread and loads of food in a welcome pack which was a lovely surprise. Place was spotless and extreamly clean. For my next stay in Ireland I know where to stay now.

  • Doreen is a great host and very quick to respond with any questions. Very tidy and lovely airbnb apartment equipped with everything you need. You can enjoy your breakfast with a view on the beach. Doreens freshly baked bread for breakfast is fantastic, we took the rest of it home because it was so good. We definitely recommend this apartment and will come again! Thank you Doreen! :-)

  • Had a lovely relaxing weekend by the sea. Great location. Nice walks and beautiful views. The bread Doreen left for us was soo good.

    Conor2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment is super clean with a nautical vibe. Beds are very comfy and the apartment has a nice feel to it. This little spot is a real gem and we enjoyed our stay here so much. This is the kind of apartment that makes you feel at home and you could definitely stay for weeks on end and be extremely happy and comfortable. The views are stunning and would obviously be more beneficial in summer months. The apartment is in a quiet area perfect for relaxing. Upon arrival Doreen meets you there and shows you round including how to work the heating which is an excellent touch. We received a welcome pack and it was the cutest welcome pack every filled with delicious goodies. The wheaten bread and butter were exceptional and I genuinely wish we could have brought some home but we had it eaten almost straight away. Doreen also had left some extra little touches such as paracetamol, toothpaste, sunscreen, ice & more. There was also ample supplies of towels, toilet roll and throws. The apartment is excellently presented and a real delight to stay in. Doreen herself is very approachable and nothing is to much for her. We got slightly lost due to my husband inputting the address incorrectly but Doreen helped us find our way. Couldn’t recommend highly enough 10/10 Will definitely be back:)

    Hannah2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely clean and modern apartment, plenty of space and comfy bed. A few snacks were left for us, the highlight of which was the homemade wheaten with butter and jam - absolutely beautiful! Very reasonably priced too. If we had had the time we would have loved to take the bikes out!

    Lauren2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hosts who made sure we had everything we needed.

  • Our stay at Esther's place was wonderful. This is the fourth Airbnb we have stayed at and it was by far the best. The accommodation was fabulous and spotlessly clean. Esther and her parents made us feel very welcome. In fact, their hospitality made us feel like family. The variety of breakfast food far surpassed our expectations with freshly baked bread as a special welcome treat. The location is perfect with a fabulous view of the lough. There are two adorable donkeys in the field to add charm to the picturesque view. There is a pub within walking distance with the best food and the friendliest locals. Not being on the regular tourist route was for us an added attraction. My husband and I have made new friends and highly recommend this B&B to anyone who wants the very best.

    Doreen2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay, really enjoy my trips to Ireland and Lough Haven

  • Another lovely stay! Great views of the sun setting over the lough, easy access to Newtownards, Belfast and Portaferry. Couldn't ask for nicer hosts.

    Matt2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Many thanks to Esther and family for an amazing stay, and being so accommodating with some delays I experienced. The annex is beautifully located and obviously well looked after - the wet room is stunning! It's perfectly placed to visit local sites like Portaferry and Castle Ward (Winterfell from Game of Thrones). The hospitality was amazing, from friendly greeting to breakfast treats left in the annex, couldn't ask for more. Look forward to visiting again! The Rhubard was great by the way, thanks for that! :)

    Matt2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much Esther & Gerald! The annex facilities were great & it was great value for money. My partner and I loved the thoughtful touch of a continental breakfast in the morning. Hope to stay again soon x

    My place is close to Kircubbin 1 miles Greyabbey 6 miles Portaferry 6 miles Newtownards 12 miles Ballyhalbert 3 miles Cloughy 3 miles Ballywalter 5 miles. You’ll love my place because of the neighbourhood, the outdoors space, the comfy bed. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and furry friends (pets).
  • Geraldine is a tremendous host and her house is just brilliant. We were at my daughters wedding at Orange Tree House in Greyabbey and were able to leave a spare car at Geraldine's the night before and arranged a very late check in after the wedding. Got up to a great breakfast - at a time to suit us - and left with very happy memories of a wonderful occasion and a great stay over. Thanks Geraldine

  • Geraldine and Derek are perfect hosts and made us so welcome. Their home is beautiful and our room was really lovely. They had even put Easter Bunnies on our bed for us. A nice welcoming touch. We had our Cockerpoo dog with us, and she was really happy playing in their safe garden with Bailey, their adorable dog. We had a really lovely stay and can't speak highly enough of our wonderful hosts! Thank you.

  • If you want accommodation in beautiful grounds with amazing views. And you like the place you are staying to be a little unusual, with hosts that are warm and friendly. Then look no further than Deerpark. I can not recommend this place any more highly. The photos do not do justice to how beautiful it was.

  • Suzanne’s place is brilliant. We were very last minute booking but she was amazing at getting back to us and welcoming us to her home. We met Phillip who let us in but she left a lovely and very generous welcome pack in the fridge and we slept so well in the comfortable bed. The place was extremely clean and tidy and it was so nice to sit in the sun room for breakfast. Can’t recommend more highly - so very pleased we booked! Thank you.

We loved the views, walking on the beach, relaxing in the house and on the deck were wonderful but the hot tub was an amazing end to each day. We would love to go back and stay there for longer.

  • We loved this house. It was very spacious and there was plenty of room for all five of us. Elaine was extremely kind and came over to make sure we were settling in alright as soon as we arrived. There was a ton of great information about attractions, walks and restaurants in the house that made our time in the area much richer. The house is very quite and the area is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

    Devon2017-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We were only in Portaferry for a few days visiting family so didn't spend too much time exploring. However, from what we saw Portaferry is a small but beautiful place and there are some lovely beaches to walk. There are restaurants a short car journey away from the cottage plus other local attractions and amenities. We went to the aquarium which is great for the kids and big kids alike and if you are willing to travel further then there is plenty to see and do which I'm sure Elaine would be more than happy to help with. Elaine gave us a warm welcome on site and provided all the info we needed. She is very close by too so was on hand to help with anything if required. More importantly however, the cottage was beautifully presented - very clean and well equipped with everything you'd probably need. It is spacious and very much a home from home, especially with the bottle of wine in the fridge chilling for us arriving. So when we were not out and about it was lovely to kick back in the front room with a glass of wine and the log burner roaring whilst the kids played games in the family room! All in all a lovely relaxing stay.

    Welcome to our beautiful home. The house consists of 3 large bedrooms 2 with ensuits. We have worked hard to turn this house into a lovely country retreat. With an extensive garden and beautiful water feature which has a hot tub in the middle on an island.
    There are 3 large bedrooms, 2 bedrooms have super king beds and the 3rd has a king size. There are 2 extra single mattresses that can be made up if required. A large open plan living room / kitchen. Dining room with large windows over looking the surrounding fields. Separate utility room with washing m/c and tumble dryer. Conservatory to the rear of the property which has full view of the garden and water feature. Stairs leading to upstairs. As this is our home our bedroom and office doors will be locked.
    The property is located at the end of a lane so well away from any roads and street lighting making it extremely peaceful and private. Closest neighbour is across the lane who are fantastic neighbours.
  • Fabulous house, tranquil setting, perfect hosts in Vanusa and Kevin. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay over new year and hope to return in the future

    Simon2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I think my ratings speak for themselves. Vanusa's and Kevin's place is amazing. Everything starting with booking and chatting to them, arrival, stay and departure was perfect! We were 2 families with 2 kids each (4 adults and 4 children) staying for 2 nights and everyone absolutely loved the house. What you see on the photos does not describe how beautiful and comfortable the house is. Don't go any further and book - you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back... :)

    Ards And North Down, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

    'The Waters Edge' is a charming three bedroom home situated on Burr Point, the most easterly point in Ireland. It is located on a private lane in the small seaside village of Ballyhalbert with stunning sea views. A picturesque setting with the Irish sea on your doorstep, a sandy beach and harbour a stones throw away, its perfect for family trips or those wanting to get away from it all and explore the beautiful Ards Peninsula. It was recently redecorated and offers all modern conveniences.
    The house is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, families with kids and groups. It is only a short drive into the village of Ballyhalbert or a 20 minute walk. The village has a large convenience store and children’s play park. There are restaurants, pubs and coffee shops in nearby Greyabbey, Ballywalter or Portavogie all of which are a 5 – 10 minute drive away. The area is great for some rest and relaxation and ideal for families or romantic occasions. I must note that this is not a suitable destination for parties.
    The Village of Ballyhalbert itself is a quiet seaside village perfect for long walks and picnics. With access to a car you can explore the entire Ards peninsula, whether it be a day out at National Trust's Mount Stewart or Castleward, a trip to the 'Exploris' Aquarium in Portaferry or a tasting and tour of Echlinville Distillery. The more adventurous of you can even take the ferry across the lough and enjoy yet more choice in beautiful Strangford. If its sport you’re interested in then why not bring your golf clubs a play to gorgeous links of Kirkistown Castle Golf Club or watch the motor racing at Kirkistown Race Track both a 5 minute drive away. Arts & Music events are held throughout the year at both National Trust venues with various outdoor activities including sailing, water sports, golf and sightseeing tours held along the Peninsula.
  • This was a great house for our family of 5. Lots of space, quiet, a great garden and very homely. George was a great host and communication was great. The house is full of character and is in a great location to explore Ards peninsula.

    David And Karen2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at The Waters Edge. Check-in was smooth and any info we needed from George he got back very quickly. The property itself was bigger than expected and very spacious for a family of 7. Everyday essentials were available. The views from the property are spectacular and we enjoyed sitting in the porched area overlooking the sea. The beach was basically on the doorstep and water was crystal clear. 1 minute walk away is the harbour of Ballyhalbert which is very quiet and peaceful. Also a good clean beach there. This property is well worth the price and you wont be disappointed.

    Alana2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. A lovely home to have as a base for your stay. Bright and spacious right on the waters edge. George was very helpful and accommodating. We will certainly be back again.

    Samuel2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • From start to finish George has been the perfect host. Our growing family of six had a wonderful Easter stay in beautiful Burr Point. The house has spectacular views and a gorgeous private garden. The house is really cosy and has great sized rooms. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we requested an extended stay. We will definitely be back! Thank you George.

    Quiet country home on Strangford Lough with views on the Mourne Mountains. Short walk to local village with bus stop to local town. Perfect location to get away from it all and relax. Close proximity to Portaferry and Strangford home of two of the famous game of thrones doors and a short drive to echlinville distillery. We are friendly people with a cat and dog.
    Peaceful and quiet
    Peaceful neighbourhood with plenty of green
  • Great stay with Fi. She made our arrival super easy considering we flew in and arrived late in the evening. A lovely relaxed atmosphere and a very comfortable room, plus a delightful Labrador to greet us at the door

    Daniel2018-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Fi and her family are very welcoming people and ready to help you at any time. The house and the room are very spacious and a short walk outside of Kircubbin. The family has a very friendly dog and a cat, people with allergies should keep that in mind though. For visitors travelling by public transport be aware that the bus only comes a couple times a day. So check online for timetables and then you shouldn’t have any problem. The landscape and surroundings are absolutely stunning and great for long walks. We definitely recommend a visit.

    Roman2018-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, very spacious! We especially loved the cat and dog, who were the sweetest pets ever. We genuinely would have adopted either or both of them! Lovely views from a nice warm house with a nice soft bed, what more can you ask for? Fi, Jean and Gary made us feel like family, literally. Overall a wonderful place to stay. Oh yes one more thing, when the cat is confident enough to approach you, he will meow and pretend like he's being starved. It's all an act, look at that belly! He is a lovely wee thing, probably the nicest cat I've ever met. The dog is the same, absolutely amazing with people and so adorable. We missed the animals when we left and still do. Highly recommend this place!

    Keith2018-08-24T00:00:00Z

    John2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • After a stay in a beautifully restored coastguard cottage, finished with top spec materials and mod cons. We are looking forward to our return. My family and I took my folks away for a birthday treat. Much to our pleasure everything was perfect the windy weather as location and dwelling made up for it. The home is classically decorated with a twist of modern and traditional features beautifully intertwined. The area is quiet with long forgotten traditions such as a honesty box for the local farmers spare crop....it truly quenches the soul.

    Cathy2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really lovely home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The house is recently renovated, finished to a very high standard and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need, the beds are comfortable and the towels are soft and fluffy. Stephie was very welcoming and helpful and had gone out of her way to add extra touches to make us feel more at home. We would thoroughly recommend Coastguard Cottage and hope to return soon.

  • Great place, close to the beach and golf course. A lovely house - the photos don't do it justice!

    Penny2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Tons of space. Comfortable beds. Everything you need also very close to the beach.

    Julie2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A true "home away from home", each room in the house is beautifully decorated - the artwork in particular is fantastic - and the rooms are all a good size with comfy beds - lots of extra pillows and blankets too. Kitchen is very well equipped and the dining room easily seats 6+ if you're having a more sit down type meal. House is located really near Cloughey beach and is convenient for exploring the Ards Peninsula in general. Communication was great, any required instructions provided in a detailed email and they also provided several additional "in case of emergency" local contacts which we ended up needing the day *after* leaving as we realized that we had left a passport in the house by mistake and had a 7am flight from Dublin. Cue a midnight dash from Dolores to check if the passport was there (it was!) and she facilitated a 1am courier pick up for the passport collection service. We made our flight all thanks to her flexibility and generosity. 100% recommend!

    Rachel2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful home, with wonderful taste in decor and style. We had a beautiful and wonderful stay. 100% would stay again in a heartbeat.

    Lorraine2018-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is lovely, in an estate of similar houses, lots of kids playing, seems safe for them, plenty of room to park, we actually extended our stay by a day. Would not hesitate to stay again if we are in the area again next year.

    Our house is down a long lane, overlooking an ancient unused harbour. It's a great place to explore rock pools, to walk along the wild and rocky shore to a small sandy beach, to paint or just to relax and enjoy the peace. There are books to read, games to play and walks to enjoy. It's good for couples, families with children although not those under two years, artists, writers, responsible pet owners and nature lovers who want to escape the lpressure of modern life.
    The cottage sits right beside the sea. The grass in front of the house runs down to a small harbour, originally used to shelter the boat which serviced the lightship. The harbour dries out at low tide. The adjoining rocks and rock pools are home to crabs, shrimps, anemones and other creatures. Hares often run past the house and go down tho the rocks at low tide. The well equipped kitchen provides a good view of the grass in front of the house and the shore. The bookcases are full of books ,and a pile of games provide amusement for all ages. You do need to keep a good eye on small children as there is no fence between the garden and the sea. The night sky, on a clear night can be wonderful, as there is little light pollution We do not allow parties
    The house is three miles from Cloughey village. There are some useful shops there, including a fish and chip shop. Further on is the fishing village of Portavogie where you can eat at The Quays restaurant, which specialises in seafood. Five miles takes you to the small town of Portaferry. It has a really good butcher, Arthurs, some grocers, a hotel and a couple of cafes. Portico, a recently refurbished and re-purposed Church, often has geat concerts and shows. It also has a permanent display explaining the history of the town and surrounding country. The Exploris Aquarium has some fantastic displays, as well as touch tanks, and it's a great place to take children for a fun day out. Portaferry has a good dog walking trail, and offers some beautiful views over the lough. A short picturesque ferry crossing from Portaferry, with or without your car, takes you to Strangford Town. Many of the scenes in Game of Thrones were filmed in the nearby National trust property, Castleward. Strangford has a couple of good pubs. Another National Trust property, Mount Stewart, is not far up the Newtownards Road. The cafe there serves good snack lunches, there are lovely walks and a really beautiful garden on the grounds of the old house. Newtownards is a good shopping town, about 20 miles from the cottage. It has a good Tesco just South of the town, and an Asda and Iceland in the shopping centre on the North side. There is a market in the town square on Saturday mornings.
  • A great place to get away from it all. Ann really went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay! Would recommend heartily.

    Barry2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay . The views are wonderful and even in a storm the house was warm and cosy . Ann provided lovely Christmas touches for our Christmas break and the kitchen was well equipped for the Christmas cooking. Plenty of wildlife to watch and the perfect getaway for peace and quiet , yet not to far from the local amenities. Highly recommended.

    Sara-Ann2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had another great week here for our second stay in this lovely cottage. It’s very spacious, clean, comfortable and homely, with everything you need, but the best thing is waking up to the views! With quiet fields behind you and the sea in front of you, it’s easy to relax and enjoy the tides and the waves. We love it.

    Marie2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic family holiday staying at Ann's house. The perfect location for us visiting extended family. The house was a great size, providing a comfortable base for us and with such good outdoor space we were able to have a lovely family BBQ with 20+ people. Weather was fantastic throughout our stay so lots to explore with our boys. Beautiful sunrises in the morning looking over the sea. Our toddler loved exploring down by the sea, throwing stones and seeing all the little crabs. Can't beat the location, so peaceful. The house itself has everything you could need& from both the kitchen and living room you really get to take in the views. Communication with Ann was brilliant. Prior to booking Ann made sure we were happy with the set up of the house, given we have a 3.5 year old and 8 month old. Ann went out her way to make sure the setting would be suitable. It was perfect for us and I look forward to booking again.

    Tanya2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely house with amazing views. Our children loved just being able to walk out of the door and explore the beach. We also had a go at snorkeling in the sea and found it to be remarkably clear. Definitely worth a visit.

    Sian2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely house, comfortable and well equipped, including a dishwasher and washing machine. It feels like a real home. The tea, coffee, etc. on arrival were much appreciated. There are numerous books and a large number of games which suit all ages from little ones to adults. The views across the sea from the lounge are stunning and there are plenty of rocks and rock pools to explore. It is also convenient for some National Trust properties including Mount Stewart. A lovely house for a family holiday in a peaceful, beautiful setting.

    Jane2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely big beach property. The photos didn’t do it justice as it was much better than expected inside. We appreciated all the amenities and the added extras, great for families. The rooms were lovely especially the sunny lounge, bedrooms, the bed (I’m sure it was king size) was very comfy and warm excellent bathrooms with choice of bath or over bath showers. The view of the rock pools, changing tide and bird life around and about was brilliant. Although we took the car across on the ferry several times touring around it was the best place and side of Strangford Lough to stay on.

    Sandra2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ann’s place is absolutely stunning and far exceeded our expectations. The house itself is very spacious, clean and comfortable. There is absolutely everything you could ever need here, from good facilities and utensils to luxury hotel style towels and comfortable cosy bedding. There’s tons of interesting books and games and even binoculars. Ann also provided a very welcome pack of coffee, bread, butter, milk and biscuits. We were really delighted with the house and felt very at home very quickly. Then you look outside and you are amazed even more. The photos do not do these views justice; everywhere you look is breathtaking with a rugged beauty that you’ll never forget. The peace here is amazing. We loved eating breakfast while watching the waves over the rocks, stargazing at night (the star walk app showed us all the major constellations as there is no light pollution) and of course exploring the area. We took the ferry from Portaferry across to Strangford and did the Mournes scenic loop from the town of Newcastle (not to be missed) as well as exploring the villages and beaches all along the Ards peninsula, shopped in Bangor and Belfast, visited Mount Stewart and the seal sanctuary at the aquarium in Portaferry. There was so much to do we extended our stay from 7 days to 10 as we were just not ready to leave it. And of course our little dog just loved the garden and exploring with us! Ann advised us on things we could look out for too and answered messages very quickly. We would love to go back, this really is a hidden gem that you will be so glad you found!

    Our house is on a quiet road and overlooks Cloughey bay. The room is large with a bay window offering panoramic views of the beach, the sea, and the Isle of Man. A table, chairs, tea-making, TV and high-speed wi-fi make it a comfortable base for exploring the beautiful Ards Peninsula.
    Cloughey is a small quiet village spread along the large sandy beach. Local services include supermarket, off-licence, and 2 hot-food take-aways. There are no restaurants or public bars in the village, but we can arrange for guests to use the bar and restaurant in the local golf-club. There is a good range of restaurants and bars in the nearby villages within a 5 or 10-minute drive. Portaferry has a selection of pubs including one with live irish music at weekends. Excellent walking along the beach, warren and further round the rocky coastline. Kearney, a quaint National Trust village with good coastal walking is a 10min drive from our house. Kirkistown Castle is open during the summer on Sat afternoons.
  • Great place, such a treat. Such a fun and interesting couple! Even kind of enough to drive us to the Ferry and recommended of sights to see.

  • We stayed 2 nights here. Perfect location for walking on the Ards Peninsula. There was an abundance of brochures for the area and Alistair was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Hospitality was fantastic and we had offers of lifts and packed lunches. Our room and bathroom were spotless and so comfortable. We had plenty of chats over breakfast and when we returned in the evening. Alistair and Abigail were perfect hosts.

  • This is such a super place to stay. The room with bathroom is essentially in a separate “wing”. Incredibly comfortable, spacious and well-equipped with the most uplifting view of the sea. I would happily stay here again. Abigail and Alistair are gracious hosts and their home is a real gem.

  • Wow, what a great time we had. Alistair and Abigail are great hosts. Very helpful and informative, could not do enough for us but were able to give us space and time for us to enjoy ourselves on our own. Very comfortable bed and waking up to the gentle sound of the sea was great. Morning walks along the beach were also a highlight. I will definitely be back.

  • We had a great time with Alistair and Abigail! They were very accommodating and have a great house looking out onto the sea. We will definitely be returning to stay when we're back in that part of the country.

  • I had a lovely stay. Both Alistair and his partner were great hosts. I arrived late after a long trip up from Dublin on an unusually wet June evening. I was made to feel very at home when I arrived. The main bedroom and bathroom are very spacious with fantastic views over the Irish Sea.
