Splendid stay in Ardtara Country House Ardtara Country House is such a wonderful haven nestled in Upperlands. Outstanding venue, peaceful location, delicious food and impeccable service combine together to make memorable stays. From the moment we arrived, GM Sean made us feel so welcome. The finite attention to detail created the beautiful warm atmosphere and perfect stay. Thank you to Sean, Leanne and all the staff. We hope to return and recommend to friends and family.

Beautifully Restored house Ardtara is a beautifully restored house.i particularly loved the working fireplace in the bed room and the Nespresso machine! Food was spectacular and the staff were very helpful & warm . It is an ideal spot to stay when exploring the antrim coast line . We got a very helpful itinerary from Sean which we followed & saw loads during our short stay .

memorable We were made very welcome by Sean, the manager on arrival. Our room was spacious yet cozy and ideal for one with a disability. We enjoyed a superb meal in the restaurant served by a lovely attentive staff. We are looking forward to our next visit in July for our daughter’s wedding. Thank you Sean and staff.

Totally charming The service, the friendliness etc. was second to none. Outstanding food overseen by the legendary Ian Orr. Such a beautiful, charming & characterful establishment. Great escape from the hurly burly. Easy access from Belfast or Derry/L’derry.

Outstanding 5 stars all the way ! We had a three night break at Ardtara and it was just what we wanted – a relaxing winter stay. The staff were outstanding, Matthew, Leanne , and Pedro who wrote a list of recommendations for his native Portugal. A small issue was sorted immediately and professionally. The food was delicious, both the restaurant and the bar food. We’ll definitely be back !

Excellent service and first class food. This was our second stay at Ardtara and we felt relaxed from the moment we arrived. We were welcomed immediately and shown to our room which was beautiful and so comfortable. The service in the bar and restaurant was second to none and the food was just delicious. We had the vegan tasting menu which was exceptional from start to finish. The whole experience was so chilled and we felt pampered throughout. I could not recommend an overnight with tasting menu highly enough.

A delight We have been coming to Ardtara for around 20y and it never fails. The staff are always so welcoming and professional, the rooms are immaculate, so well fitted out and comfortable. We felt very special staying in the Master Bedroom. We had the tasting menu. My wife is vegetarian, but they already had a suitable menu designed. The food was really, really good, but the star was actually sweet potato ravioli with a dreamy sauce. The wine pairings were excellent. It was a pleasure to stay and dine here again. Can’t recommend it enough!
