Wow, thanks so much for this fantastic review of your stay at Shola and your lovely compliments. We are so glad you decided to come North and give us the opportunity to share our home and some Northern Irish hospitality with you. Keep an eye on our website as we do share some of our 'secret' Shola recipes on there and you might just find the pancake one popping up soon! We hope you'll be back for another visit someday.

Is there pub within walking distance?
Hi The town of Portrush and all its pubs is a downhill walk of about 30 minutes. We are happy to drive guests into town in the evening, and a short taxi ride (£5-6) will get you home again. Let us know if you have any other questions. Hope to welcome you to Shola soon.
