Holiday Rental House
This is the only Coastguard Boat House on Belfast Lough available as a holiday let. Set a metre from the Lough, the Boat house has stunning sea views from all windows including a view of the famous Belfast Cranes (Samson and Goliath.) Yet despite its sea side location, it is less than ten minutes from Belfast's lively Cathedral Quarter with all the pubs, clubs and world leading restaurants and from the Titanic Belfast Museum. A train station is less than ten mins away - and you can be in the city in (two stops) five minutes, or catch a bus right outside the private lane and be in town in 15 minutes. Only just rennovated and set to open in December 2018, the Boat House has kept some of its original features, including a beamed ceiling, original Coastguard Boat house rigging and a 1830s ...This is the only Coastguard Boat House on Belfast Lough available as a holiday let.

Only just rennovated and set to open in December 2018, the Boat House has kept some of its original features, including a beamed ceiling, original Coastguard Boat house rigging and a 1830s window. It has all modern conveniences - and a brand new extra long 'hand made in Belfast bed' to ensure the only thing keeping you awake is the sound of the sea. On your door step are sea wrecks, and children staying get a special welcome pack to explore the Boat House and its history. A sea path takes you to a play ground and to The White House, an open museum - one of the oldest buldings in NI. You are also less than ten minutes from Carrickfergus Castle and five minutes from Belfast Castle and the famous Cavehill. This is a unique experience for couples and families.

We had a great time at the boathouse. The location and facilities were as described. They were clean and organized. Carol, the proprietor, was very helpful and had thought of everything we might need (and many things we might have forgotten!).

The comfortable and cosy Whiteabbey Boathouse right on Loughshore was far more spacious than I had imagined and so full of character. Comfortable, beautifully decorated and furnished with so many extra little touches that made it an exceptional place to stay. I found it interesting...More

About the neighbourhood
Whiteabbey is a historical village, once home to the harbour where linen was traded. There are local attractions within walking distance including The White House - one of the oldest buildings in N Ireland, and right outside the Boat House door is the old linen pier and ship wrecks which you can explore at high tide. The Coastal walk, the Boat House is located on, is a 40 minute walk which takes in the country and urban coast, it offers a view of Holywood and the famous Belfast Cranes. You can cycle on the path right into the city centre in about 40 minutes. The Boat house is less than five minute walk away from the village of Jordanstown with several restaurants, bars and supermarket.
Getting around
A bus stop is right outside the door with frequent bus service to Belfast City Centre (20 minutes) or Carrickfergus (ten minutes). In less than five minutes you can walk to Whiteabbey station and two stops (five minutes) via rail takes you into the City Centre. If you want to go the Giant's Causeway then a 40 minute scenic train journey will take you there.
