Holiday Rental House
Drumnahay Lodge is a spacious 4* tourism northern ireland approved country cottage. The lodge is situated in one of Northern Ireland’s designated areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The panoramic views from every window take in the majestic Binevenagh Mountain to the front which dominates the sky-line, whilst to either side, there is the vast stretch of Magilligan’s plains. To the rear are the blue-misted rolling hills of Donegal, clearly visible across the shores of Lough Foyle. It is a perfect retreat for relaxed holidays in Northern Ireland.

Newly refurbished to a high standard, the lodge is an all ground floor accommodation with a disabled access at the back. Original features such as wood and terrazzo flooring, cornices, fireplaces and stain glass windows have been preserved to retain the art deco character of the house whilst bringing a contemporary feel with well chosen modern touches. Formerly a family residence, Drumnahay Lodge is untypical in the self-catering market as it conveys the quality and character of a genuine home. The lodge is secluded and private – the perfect retreat for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban living and is particularly well suited for family groups. It enjoys the privacy of having no close neighbours, yet it remains accessible to all local amenities. Bellarena Train station (new station and platform) opposite lane end about 5 mins away.More
