Downhill Beachhouse

We offer individual and group accommodation in a restored Victorian villa historically named ‘Glenhassan Hall’ facing Northern Ireland’s Downhill beach.

Downhill is an ideal location to get away and enjoy the natural beauty of Northern Ireland’s coastline. We offer discounts for groups and specialise in family reunions and private parties. We strive to be very family friendly accommodation.

Individual tourists, birthday parties, family reunions, University reunions, hen and stag parties, and youth or church groups have all found Downhill a great location to relax together under the same roof, enjoy the beach and create wonderful memories.

Location, location, location…

Northern Ireland has a marvelous coastline. Downhill beach is a white sand beach and the longest beach in Northern Ireland. The Beachhouse overlooks the beach with direct access via a footbridge without crossing a road.

The property neighbors the Downhill Demense National Trust owned estate containing the famous Mussenden Temple monument and the ruins of Downhill House.
