The Experience

Birdsong accompanies your arrival at this wonderful Georgian family home where original features abound. It’s surrounded by acres of mature gardens and its bright rooms have huge beds and superlative views (for seclusion, bagsy the charming Scullery studio).

A grand piano and warming fire await in the drawing room. Return from a round of world-class golf or Wild Atlantic Way walk to swap stories over home-baked afternoon tea. Breakfast arrives à table from the kitchen garden. Savour fresh fruits, compôtes (perhaps rhubarb and lime), homemade bread, honey and preserves and tuck into free-range eggs with garden chives or the succulent sausages of Angela’s Ulster fry.

Tick off National Trust treasures, rotate between top-notch restaurants, have tranquil strolls around the grounds and sit by a roaring fire.

Accommodation

Reviews

We very much enjoyed our stay at Dromore House. Everything from the warm welcome, log fire and cream tea on arrival was impressive. Angela was most helpful in providing advice on places to eat for lunch and in the evening. The range of options for breakfast was outstanding and the accommodation was comfortable and tasteful. Dromore house is well situated to visit the North Antrim coast and Donegal.

We had a wonderful time at Dromore House and Angela’s hospitality was second to none. Beautiful homemade scones (including gluten free ones!) and a welcoming log fire in the comfortable lounge on our arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. Very tasty breakfasts, good advice on where to visit and where to eat out. Lovely bedroom and gardens in a peaceful setting. Thank you Angela for a very memorable stay in your beautiful home.

Susan and stephen, Sheffield

A beautiful Georgian property in the country but minutes from Coleraine and the Causeway attractions. Angela is the perfect host with tea and home made scones on arrival. Our room had a four poster bed and a glorious view of the garden. Breakfast was served in the pretty dining room with a selection of fruit, home made bread and of course the Ulster Fry! Daily specials are also offered. Angela was so helpful, advising us on good restaurants in the area and even filling our flasks with milk and hot water for a picnic. Anyone visiting this area must stay here. We definitely will be returning.

Lovely warm Irish welcome from Angela. The breakfast menu is incredible. As much as possible produced from the garden. The compotes really caught my eye, rhubarb and lime, yum! The house is charming, light bright and clean, every room has beautiful antique furniture and Irish art. The drawing room sums up the house. Warm, comfortable and full of charm. The garden is an oasis of calm.

Location

The neighbourhood

You’re minutes from Coleraine and 10 miles from an iconic coastal landscape. Don’t miss the Giant’s Causeway, the dramatic Mussenden Temple, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the myth-swirled Glens of Antrim. Golfers can play at Royal Portrush then try the town harbour’s dining scene or Harry’s Shack at blue-flag Portstewart beach, The Water Margin in Coleraine or the Bushmills distillery’s atmospheric restaurant to sup in style.

Local points of interest from Angela Rolston

  • Murlough Bay is a secluded and beautiful cove (protected by the National Trust) close to Ballycastle and Fair Head. Step back in time with a gourmet picnic and take in the very great beauty of the place....
  • The Giants Causeway is a geological wonder and N Ireland's first UNESCO world Heritage site. Together with the charming Carrick a Reed Rope Bridge, this makes a superb start to seeing what the Causeway Coast has to offer.
  • Royal Portrush Golf Course has long attracted golfers and this year will host 'The Open 2019'. We offer an amazing choice of excellent courses as well as Royal Portrush - Portstewart, Castlerock and Ballycastle all within easy reach of Dromore House.
  • Rathlin Island offers a world away from it all....a haven for seals and puffins, a day of remote reflection and excellent hiking. A short boat trip from Ballycastle - a rewarding day out in good weather with an excellent packed lunch.
  • For Game of Thrones enthusiasts - visit The Dark Hedges which was used in the filming of the series and also Portstewart Strand, Downhill Beach, Larrybane, Ballintoy, Fair Head and Murlough Bay for a sneek peek into the world of GOT filming.
  • A must see is the alluring Dunluce Castle - one of the most picturesque and romantic of Irish Castles - the castle ruins dating back to 16th /17th century. Combine the trip with a visit to the famous 400 yr old Bushmills Whiskey distillery -

Introducing

Angela Rolston

Angela and Peter moved here in 1999 and are always delighted to welcome people into their family home. She ran a wine business abroad. Peter’s grandfather, Joseph Shaw, brought greyhound racing to Ireland – thus the dog motifs. Angela prepares local food to historic family recipes for her guests, and she runs the B&B with an emphasis on ‘country house not hotel’. Plans to convert the estate’s listed outbuildings into cottages are afoot.
