Downhill Beachhouse Reviews


The Downhill Hostel is stunningly situated in one of the best locations in N. Ireland. Overlooking the 10km Downhill beach and the Atlantic ocean, the hostel is backed by dramatic cliffs and bordered by a steam. This grand Victorian home has been lovingly restored maintaining its attractive character. The hostel is also home to a woking pottery called 'Elements Studio Ceramics'.
