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.
