Ballycastle, on the north Antrim coast, features in this week’s Thursday Doors. My daughter and her husband have finished renovating their cottage (featured in a previous Thursday Doors post) and it’s now available to rent. Here’s a few before and after shots:
Of course I had to give it a trial run before it was unleashed on the public and it was the perfect setting for a spot of writing.
I’ll put a link at the end for you to see more images of the inside and outside. I love what they did with the rear of the cottage, where it’s so nice to sit and enjoy nature.
Of course, I couldn’t resist taking some shots of the beautiful Causeway coast while I was there. So we headed for the beach, just a few minutes drive away.
There’s a ferry crossing to Rathlin Island from Ballycastle harbour every day but I haven’t been yet. I’d like to go when the puffins are there so I’ll wait till next summer.
Even though I was at the beach, I was still on the lookout for doors.
I think the Gaffer is feeling his age these days. He was giving me hints that it was time to turn back towards town.
As always, thanks a mil for coming along on this autumn beach walk with myself and the Gaffer. If you’re planning a trip to Ireland or fancy a few days exploring the Causeway coast and glens, have a look at what’s available for Cosy Cottage on Airbnb or Booking.com There are more images of the completed renovation on those sites, too.
Norm has some interesting Thursday Doors over on his blog this week, with links to lots more in the comments at the end of his post.
