Luxury two storey cottage overlooking the beautiful valley of Glendun. Guests enjoy walks through open countryside full of native flora, fauna and wildlife. From the brow of the valley, magnificent views of the Antrim Coast and Glens, Sea of Moyle, Rathlin Island and the Mull of Kintyre can be admired. Local amenities include fishing, sailing, golfing, hill walking and horse riding. Large stretches of the Ulster countryside may be enjoyed, historical sites such as Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, Castle Carra and many other relics of a bygone age can be explored.
Drumfaskey Cottage is the perfect base for anyone who would like to stay in an area of unsurpassed natural beauty. Guests are free to roam the farm tracks and observe the wildlife and fauna of the area. The Glens of Antrim offers a totally unique fusion of breathtaking scenery and bustling villages. The traveller will be enthralled by its fascinating heritage and inspiring myths, a timeless landscape where rugged coastline surrounds silent, romantic glens and lush forests. Nearby, St. Patrick once tended his herds on the slopes of Slemish and the warrior poet Oísín was laid to rest in Glenann.

Throughout the glens, secluded beaches beckon and clear streams gush down from the hills to wander through unspoilt lowlands and picturesque villages.

The Glens of Antrim have been recognised as unique landscape and are officially designated as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. This includes a fifty mile shoreline, forests, open grasslands, peat bogs and mountain upland rich in history and culture. A long history of settlement and war is marked in the dramatic landscape by prehistoric stone tombs, churches and castles that tell of an age gone by and are a delight to behold for both the enthusiast and passers by.
