About the neighbourhood
Castlerock, in County Derry/Londonderry, nestles on the shores of a stunning Blue Flag Beach, overlooked by historical Mussenden Temple Downhill Castle. Tara Lodge is located 10 minutes walk to the beach and local shops. The beach is breath taking. Its utilised by families for chilling out and for those that are more adventurous with great waves for surfing and body boarding. Watch the dolphins & porpoise along the coastline with many species of birds and more. On the hillside overlooking Castlerock is the famous Mussenden Temple and Downhill Castle, now managed by the National Trust. The village also boasts the magnificent international links golf course, Castlerock Golf Club, with its 2 challenging courses, rated in the top 100 in UK
Getting around
The best way to see many the sites n the North Coast is by Car. The train also stops in the village giving access to the historical city of Derry in Co Londonderry and to the South is the City of Belfast. As well as the train stop, you can also pick up a bus in the village to travel all around the North Coast and more. Michael Palin described the railway line between Derry and Coleraine as “one of the most beautiful rail journeys in the world” — and he may just have a point. There is parking at Tara lodge for 2 cars. There's also a bus service in the village.
