Cottage was beautiful, very clean and easy to get to. We had a great time, thank you
We stayed for three weeks and loved it! Diane's house is the perfect home base: Away from it all, yet close to everything - the beach, the shops, friendly people. The minute we left we knew we would come back one day.
The house is spacious and cozy, it has plenty of room for spending time together as a family. The large kitchen with dining table invites people to cook and eat together. There is plenty of room in the kitchen to store your own food stuffs and the fridge is sizeable enough to store fresh foods. There ...

The market town of Limavady offers a taste of everything which has helped to make this corner of Ireland popular with visitors from every part of the world. Situated just next to the A2 Causeway Coastal Route which runs through County Londonderry, it offers access to every type of scenery visitors come to enjoy.
The unspoiled beaches of the Atlantic coast are just minutes away, as are the slopes of the spectacular Binevenagh Mountains and the sparkling waters of Lough Foyle. Add forests, ancient ruins and a cosmopolitan city centre to the mix, and it’s easy to understand why people return time and time again.
The people travelling to Limavady run the gamut from newlyweds seeking a romantic honeymoon spot to business people enjoying a conference in stunning surroundings and families keen to exploit the multitude of activities on offer.
Given this range, it’s no surprise that a broad choice of accommodation is on offer. A traditional bed and breakfast to the north of the town centre will offer a warm welcome and easy access to the beach at Benone Strand, while a city centre hotel or guesthouse will make it easy to explore the shops, pubs and restaurants of Limavady itself.
It would be a shame, of course, not to take advantage of the glory of the surrounding countryside, and where better to do so than from a room in a secluded lodge or a lakeside spa hotel? Wherever you opt to stay, the chances are that you’ll find the lure of the great outdoors irresistible, seeking out and visiting spectacular and historical sites such as Magilligan Point.
Magilligan Point sits 12 miles to the north of Limavady town centre, and is a spectacular spot at the very head of Lough Foyle. To reach it, you need to head north from the town on the A371 and A37 before taking the A2, here aptly named Windyhill Road. Stay on the A2 until reaching Point Road, the B202, which leads directly to the point itself.
The first thing to strike any visitor to the point is the stunning view to be enjoyed, no matter what direction you look in. Out to sea you can admire the wild waters of the Atlantic and, on a clear day, a glimpse of the coast of Scotland while, in the other direction, the spectacular form of Lough Foyle lies stretched out before you.
The point itself, resting at the tip of one of the longest stretches of sand dunes in the UK, has been declared a nature reserve, and visitors in summer will be treated to the sight of wildflowers such as harebells and bird's-foot trefoil and the presence of butterflies and sea birds.
The most striking man-made addition to the scenery of the point is the presence of a round Martello tower, which was built during the Napoleonic Wars and is one of the best preserved buildings of its kind in the world. The walls of the tower are an impressive nine feet thick and, when originally constructed, it housed a 24-pound cannon.
Adjacent to the tower you’ll find the Point Bar and Restaurant, where you can enjoy a drink and delicious home-cooked food while soaking up some of the best views in Ireland.
