A stunning few days spent in the very lap of luxury. Indulge your senses from relaxing massages, to gourmet fine-dining, exclusive stays in authentic country homes and the beauty of the Giant’s Causeway’s North Coast.
Taste your way through the hidden gastronomic gems of Northern Ireland with this mini causeway coastal escape. We bring you a flavour of the North Coast in our luxury accommodation. Start the weekend, the gentle way, with a warm welcome at Newforge House. There will be home baked sweet treats, freshly ground coffee, and tea on arrival. Savour this welcome, and take note of this spectacular country home nestled in the Armagh countryside. This ivy-fringed home is the perfect retreat from it all.
Settle into your room, where you will find no detail too small. Look out your window at the beautiful scenery, before heading downstairs for an Eight Leaf Gin Tasting. There will be a comforting atmosphere, as you share stories with the other guests, before heading into the dining room for a dinner you won’t forget. Here awaits a gourmet dinner menu carefully paired with local craft beers. Dine on fresh fish, local meat, seasonal vegetables and herbs. After dinner make your way upstairs to indulge in a long soak in the tub, followed by a quiet night’s sleep in the peaceful countryside.
Wake to a breakfast that brims with northern character. Prepare yourself for a day of indulgence. Your first stop is Ditty’s Artisan Bakery where you will be treated to a talk and tasting. Enjoy the jovial welcome of our keen bakers as they pander to your sweet tooth. Head to Bushmills Inn, where you can check into your room, and then indulge in a relaxation massage. Let your worries leave you.
Saunter back to your room, where a glass of bubbly awaits. Sip as you freshen up for dinner, and enjoy your pre-dinner tipple. Downstairs experiencing award winning food at its best. Bushmills Inn is famous for their service and culinary skills. Debate over what to eat, from fresh fish, to locally sourced meat, cheese and fresh vegetables and herbs, all sourced and cooked with the utmost care. After dinner, sit in front of a roaring fire before you retire for a peaceful night’s sleep in a bedroom that’s designed for escapism.
Wake to a full Irish breakfast with all the trimmings, before bidding farewell to our family at Bushmills Inn and make your way to the Bushmills Distillery, home to world-famous whiskey. You are now on the way to the Giant’s Causeway, where you will stand on basalt stones millions of years’ old. The sea before you, the fertile lands behind you. Breathe in the air and beauty of this beautiful coast line, before you head to the very lap of luxury.
Make your way up the estate of Culloden House. An exquisite home that sets the standard for fine-dining and extraordinary accommodation on their beautiful estate. Perhaps take a moment to drink in the touches of opulence in your room, before freshening up for dinner. Don the glad rags and dine in style at the Mitre Restaurant, famed for its local produce, divine desserts, meat and seafood cooked to perfection.
After dinner sip one last indulgent bit of wine, before enjoying a night’s sleep in a bed fit for kings and queens. Wake to another indulgent breakfast, take one last lingering stroll around the rolling lands of the estate before packing your bags.
