Drumnahay Lodge is situated in one of Northern Ireland’s designated areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The panoramic views from every window take in the majestic Benevenagh Mountain to the front which dominates the skyline, whilst to either side there is the vast stretch of Magilligan’s plains. To the rear are the blue-misted rolling hills of Donegal, clearly visible across the shores of Lough Foyle. It is a perfect retreat for relaxed holidays in Northern Ireland.


Bellarena level crossing is the most reliable signpost to give to guests, as the somewhat hidden turn-off for a 0.8 mile country lane leading to the property is exactly here. If in doubt, you can easily find the Drumnahay Lodge on Google Maps.

The Lodge is a spacious country cottage, formerly a family residence. It is a NITB (Northern Ireland Tourist Board) approved self-catering accommodation. It is untypical in the self-catering market as it retains that quality and character of a genuine home. The lodge is spacious, secluded and private — the perfect retreat for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban living and is particularly well suited for family groups. It enjoys the privacy of having no close neighbours, yet it remains accessible to all local amenities. The local SPAR is about 2 miles away. This family-run store offers everything you will need for your holidays. The nearest pub/restaurant is also about 2 miles away, situated at Magilligan Point.

You can stop for a bite to eat at Magilligan Point Bar before catching the ferry which will take you across to Greencastle, Donegal. Two miles in the other direction from Drumnahay towards Limavady, you can eat at Coast which is also a traditional pub/restaurant situated in the village of Myroe. Bellarena station, a small station on the main Belfast to Derry route is situated at the lane’s end where it meets the main A2 road. The nearest main town is Limavady, which is about 8 miles away, the road passing through pleasant villages and farmland of Myroe and Anaghloo and over the impressive River Roe at Swann’s Bridge, one of the best angling rivers in the area.
