Welcome to to the only Coastguard Boat House you can sleep in on Belfast Lough.

Experience an unique stay, as you will be only be a metre away from the sea, so close that the waves sometimes touch the windows.

And yet so convenient (ten minutes in car, bus, train) to busy Belfast City Centre with its pubs, clubs, restaurants,  the Titanic museum and walking tours.

Drive the opposite direction and you are 15 minutes to the Gobbins Coastal Path and Carrickfergus Castle. 

You will be staying at the start of the Causeway Coastal Drive-  less than 40 minutes from the Giant's Causeway.

In summer, watch cruise ships sail past, taste & smell salty air.  

All of the Boat House is yours - so no concerns about noisy neighbours or privacy. 

The Boat House is also all on one level with no steps, has extra wide doors, has a shower seat and so is suitable for people who have mobility challenges. 

And if you have a four legged furry baby you can relax as we are a dog friendly holiday let.

For folks with babies we can provide a cot, kid's utensils, a property all on one level and a high chair.

Renovated and only just opened in December 2019, with all modern conveniences but with original features from its 200 yr history.

And although we are in a private laneway on the coast,  you can walk to Whiteabbey Village,  in 5 mins for fresh food, pubs and pharmacy.  Or take a longer walk along the Coast to the coffee can for a coffee at Hazelbank Park. 

We are open all year around so ideal for a summer break, or a winter get away.
