This gorgeous whitewashed cottage with roses growing over the blue half door sleeps six and is in a spectacular location leading on to the end of Ballycastle’s mile-long sandy beach.

This cottage is small, but neat and tidy and a very good location. We loved being right on the beach and it was a great value. The town of Ballycastle is really cute and you cannot beat the drive on the coast in Antrim.

Marcool Cottage is a gem. The location is amazing, the cottage warm and cozy - very quiet and very clean! We decided to remove our shoes when we got back from the beach as who wants to tramp sand into such a clean place? We loved our stay and will be back.

Gorgeous weather, amazing ocean views and a well-equipped home made our stay at Marcool Cottage so memorable. The location was great for exploring the Antrim coast, and Ballycastle was a great little town to unwind in. Hazel is a wealth of information, and the views from the back of the house are stunning. Wish we could have stayed longer!
