Property Description

We're four-time winners of 'best hostel in Northern Ireland' as voted by Hostelworld customers in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and 2013.

We have very comfortable full-sized beds in small dorms and private bedrooms, including six double rooms. All our double rooms can be used as twins and all can sleep up to four with a double bed plus two single beds if required. If you want to book a room for a family please book a double or twin room, then email us after booking if additional beds are required. There's a charge of 5 per night for an additional child needing their own bed, and 10 per night for an additional adult.

Our family-friendly facilities include a common room with a real fireplace, a dining room overlooking the ocean and a front garden with picnic tables. Guests can use the fully equipped self-catering kitchen, with lots of spices, tea and coffee provided.

Laundry facilities are available as is wetsuit and body board rental. There's free Internet access.

Reviewed by the Guardian Newspaper, 3 February 2009: 'Rarely will you see another hostel with such a look of permanent surprise on its face. This lovely detached villa, parked under the cliffs, stares out wide eyed over a country railway line to the longest beach on the north coast of Ireland and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Inside, the decor and furnishings give the unmistakable feeling that you're a guest in someone's enviably comfortable home. The Giant's Causeway is just a short bus ride away ... but perhaps we'll curl up with a book and go tomorrow.'

The 'Downhill Beachhouse' is located in one of the most beautiful locations in Ireland. Stunningly situated Downhill Beachhouse overlooks the North Coast's longest beach and the Atlantic ocean.
The house is backed by dramatic cliffs and bordered by a stream, creating the perfect setting for a relaxed evening. Downhill is a great base for exploring the North Coast including the Giant's Causeway, and neighbours the National Trust estate's famous Mussenden Temple.

There's a good bus and train service here from Coleraine and Derry. Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle and Bushmill's Distillery are less than 30 minutes away by car, while Downhill Palace Ruin, Mussenden Temple and the Black Glen Gardens are just uphill.
