From beginning to end, everything about our stay was perfect. The standards of the accommodation, the utensils and essentials provided, the guidance from ILT staff and the lighthouse's on-site resident. We were 8 friends staying across both cottages for 2 nights and we're all simply dying to go back. Highly recommended and even better than the photos suggest.

Wonderful house, peaceful retreat... We spent three days and nights at this house. Our children particularly loved the hot tub and sauna in the wellness area. We thoroughly enjoyed!
Everything was perfect : we have been warmly welcomed by the house manager, the house is very well maintained and very much comfortable and the view ist just amazing. We highly recommend staying there !
The Lightkeeper's House at Blackhead is a beautifully mantained historical property with gorgeous seaviews. House 1 is very spacious and full of light. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully furnished to preserve the feel of the Edwardian era. The place is ideal for anyone seeking an idyllic retreat away from the crowds, but not too far from the city and other sights. Belfast is only a half hour away, Dublin about two hours. The lighthouse is also wonderfully located at the start of the scenic coastal drive to the nine glens of Antrim and the northern shore. The property manager, Pamela Stew...more
We loved our stay here. Such a unique property right on the river but also in the centre of town. Great location to explore local sites during the day and walk to local restaurant and pubs at night. The mill itself is perfect for 2, well equipped and spacious. We loved being able to hear the river at night. Would recommend this to anyone
Everything about Helens Tower was perfect. Absoluity everything that we needed was provided for our comfort and needs. The place is stunning. We can't wait to go back. Have tried not to recommend Helens tower as we want it for ourselves. Everybody we've told wants to go.
We spent the weekend based at Blackhead Lightkeepers House 2 to celebrate my dad's 70th and brother's 30th - the house itself is in a stunning location, comfortable and clean, and a really good amount of space for our group (6 adults). It's a great base for exploring, and we went out during the days, returning to cook and spend the evening enjoying the house. The only things I thought could be improved are that the bath does not have a shower attachment, meaning there is only one shower, and the kitchen dining chairs are very low for the table (we used cushions from the living room!). Overall,...more
Beautiful tower with really nice bedroom with comfy bed and good kitchen/sitting room Bear in mind everything is only reached bij spiral staircase, so unfortunately not accessable for people with mobility problems.. Nice to walk outside in the gardens We had a great stay
We felt relaxed from the moment we arrived and thoroughly enjoyed the lodge, the estate and the area. Ideal situation for exploring, very quiet, compact and cosy. Bedlinens were very nice and an open fire a definite bonus. we took our dog and she settled quickly and loved exploring too. A step back in time and we would return to the lodge and also think of staying at othe Landmark properties.
This was our second stay at Magherintemple Lodge & again we had a fabulous time. A perfect little retreat to unwind & get away from the hustle & bustle of life. The location is ideal for exploring the beautiful scenery of the North Coast with no end of places to visit. The website honestly doesn’t do this little property justice, Monica is a fabulous host & keeps the Lodge immaculate. We would definitely recommend a stay here no matter what the season.
The cottage and surroundings were beautiful. The cottage was well maintained and stocked. Comfortable beds and the cottage itself was warm. The only downside was the smell upstairs. Great getaway and very peaceful. I would recommend this place and would return.
