Ardtara Country House & Restaurant, near the Giant’s Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland, offers a romantic getaway with “Best I ever had” dining.

Ardtara Country House is conveniently located in Upperlands, within 10-40 minutes of all the scenic attractions of the North Antrim coast and Giant’s Causeway — plus Royal Portrush/Portstewart links golf courses and all airports (source: Google Maps).  Just the perfect location for an elegantly restored linen magnate’s 19th century ancestral home.

Delicious Dining

As you might expect of a hotel owned by award-winning restauranteurs (Browns of Derry), Ardtara has just earned these head-of-class awards from the Restaurants Association of Ireland: “Best Hotel Restaurant in Ulster 2015”“Best Emerging Cuisine in Ulster 2015” and “Best Chef in Co. Derry 2015”.

Romantic Wedding Location

Approached down a tree-lined lane, and set in the privacy of 8 wooded acres, Ardtara is perfect for a romantic getaway, extraordinary wedding or memorable family reunion. Note: Ardtara has previously been named “Most Romantic Hotel of the Year” by the AA.

Cosy Fireplaces & King Size Beds

Ardtara offers 9 large bedrooms each with cosy working fireplaces, the best modern king size beds, en-suite bathrooms with high pressure showers plus mood-enhancing owner-collected antiques.

One of the “Best Places to Stay”

All in all, perhaps it’s reassuring to know that Ardtara Country House has been named one of the 5 best places to stay in all Northern Ireland by The National Geographic Traveler Magazine (USA) article “The Best Places to Stay in Britain and Ireland”. Also a Fodor’s “Choice” selection and an invited member of Ireland’s prestigious Blue Book hotel association.

Ardtara offers free Wi-Fi and, if desired, even a GPS/satnav tip sheet to get you to and from the best tourist attractions off the beaten path.
