How to get there
Airport: Belfast International Airport: 87.0 km
Railway: Castlerock: 3.0 km
Ferry: Magilligan Point ferry (to Donegal): 13.0 km
If you’re travelling from Fermanagh, it’s better to travel via Claudy and then Limavady. From Limavady, follow signs for Castlerock. You’ll arrive in the hamlet of Downhill after about 20 minutes, 5 minutes before you reach Castlerock. If you find yourself travelling up a steep hill, you’ve probably just missed Downhill (it’s very small).

If you travel via Coleraine, do not follow signs for Portrush, instead again look for signs for Castlerock. Once you get close to Castlerock, there should be signs for Downhill.

There is a small row of 5 houses just before a large block of apartments. The fourth one is the house, and there is parking space just outside the door.
