Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we've been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That's why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
Wir hatten das Lightkeeperhouse für ein Wochenende gemietet. Der Kontakt und die Buchung liefen reibungslos und sehr freundlich. Zur Ankunft gab es ein kleines Willkommenspaket und eine sehr herzliche Unterstützung vor Ort schon bei der Anreise.
Das Haus ist perfekt eingerichtet, unglaublich gemütlich und komfortabel. Es ist wirklich an alles gedacht und ohne Einschränkung funktionierend. In den sehr bequemen Betten haben wir sehr gut geschlafen. In dem Haus gibt es weder Fernsehen noch Internet. Auch hatte ich keinerlei Netzempfang in dem ganzen Bereich. Einfach herrlich! Obwohl sämtliche T...more
Was my first time to book with Landmark Trust and was a very pleasurable experience, house manager showed us around the home and how everything worked in the house. The place was very comfortable and very clean. House is in a very quiet and relaxing location with a lot of beautiful scenery.
Drum Gatelodge is a unique little gem. It is cosy and quaint. Although the Northern Ireland coastline is hugely attractive Drum Gatelodge will make you struggle to want to leave it to explore more outside.
This is a fabulous property with simply incredible sea views. The location is wonderful. The house has been restored very very well. We were given a warm welcome by Pamela, the house manager. We enjoyed the views, the walks and the cosiness of the house. A truly memorable experience!
Our trip to Ireland was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We had also left Ireland right after our wedding to start our new life in USA. We took our two daughters and our two grandsons to share the places of our childhood and where we grew up. We thought Blackhead Light House would be a good start to our visit and was kept as a surprise for the boys. Their delight when they figured out we were staying at a 'real Light House' was beyond anything we expected.
The accomodation fitted our needs perfectly. We had a very positive visit and a great beginning to our trip.
Stayed at barbican for 3 nights as a minimoon after our wedding wanting a unique & relaxed environment - the barbican was perfect on both fronts. Place is exactly as per photos. Due to location & age there is some dust & cobwebs in places but overal quite well kept. Lack of shower is understandable but not ideal although we were aware before booking so can't complain. Phone/radio reception is very poor with no tv or wifi but again made clear in description so we were aware of lack of access to media - next time we would bring something to make some background noise though. Got great weather so...more
We have stayed in a few Landmark Properties and all have been so different. Helens tower was unique the rooms were full of character and history especially the poetry room and the view from the roof terrace was amazing! No good if you can't manage stairs though!
The place was spotless and the House Manager was very helpful, especially when we arrived, without him I don't think we would have found it tucked away in the woods.
I'd certainly recommend it and hope to go back sometime.
The cottage is charming however bat droppings are toxic!! To be exposed to that level is dangerous. My husband has an autoimmune disease affecting his lungs & my son recently had open heart surgery with compromised lungs. Histoplasmosis is a true threat to them
