Accessible rooms

Set in its own extensive gardens, Ardtara Country House enjoys a secluded location just a short drive from the beautiful north Antrim coast and the famous Giant's Causeway. This fine 19th-century house offers guests spacious bedrooms with views over the landscaped gardens. There is a comfortable lounge, a cosy bar and many original features have been sympathetically restored. The award-winning restaurant offers the best fresh seasonal produce and the hearty breakfasts served in the conservatory are not to be missed. The city of Derry is a short drive away as is the challenging Royal Portrush golf course.
