Tara Cottage - the ideal setting to explore the wonders and beauty of the Causeway Coast.
Offering a perfect chance to enjoy Northern Ireland at your own speed, in your own way.
After many holidays in Northern Ireland Trevor and I decided we would like to become involved in Tourism. This set us exploring the North West for a new home that had to be set in a quiet location, allowing Guests the opportunity to relax and have easy access to the Causeway Coast and Antrim Glens.
We believe we have found this in Tara Cottage and set about furnishing it to the highest standards. As a result of our research, you can be assured of a very warm welcome in a beautiful, well presented home. We invite you now, to view more of Tara to see for yourself the luxury and comfort we have provided.
At no 4 Garrylaban Court.
Tara Cottage nestles in a small cul de sac. It is a residential, safe area with only the odd passing car going to one of the other homes
