Porthole Cottage is perfectly located to take the cliff walk from Whitepark Bay to the Giant’s Causeway. One can then catch the bus back, and then it is a short walk up the road to the cottage. This is one of the cleanest cottages we have ever stayed in, and it is spotless. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and the lounge is very comfortable. The cottage is located in a very quiet, rural location. WiFi is not speedy but was perfectly reliable. Margaret suggested we drop into the Coffee Bothy, which is a short distance away, it is a wonderful place for coffee. Margaret is very kind and welcoming. We enjoyed our short stay in Porthole Cottage.

This is a wonderful, very well-equipped Cottage overlooking the sea and located right next to the famos Giant's Causeway. Sadly, we could only stay for a single night, but I'm sure this would be perfect for an extended family vacation. The owners are perfect hosts who made us feel welcome and pampered from the minute we arrived. We will be back!

Very comfortable and homely, made to feel welcome by Margaret and two lovely cakes. The cottage was well situated to visit many of the great attractions in Northern Ireland.

“A wonderful cottage, ideally situated”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We loved our stay at the Porthole Cottage. The place is just a few minutes from the Giant's Causeway and the landscape and the view from the cottage is amazing. The cottage itself had everything we needed and felt like home. And that home-made gingerbread cake that Margaret left for us wad so delicious! Definitely a place to discover...
