What our guests say…

This has been a wonderful trip. Some of the most spectacular scenery we have ever seen… then home to the Drum for good books, good wine and good food. No doubt we will be returning in the not too distant future.
Just spent a delightful four nights at Drum Gatelodge. It was a perfect size for my husband and I, and our dog. Before arriving, I was initially worried that this character property might be a little cold and drafty, but the underfloor heating made it wonderfully cosy. It’s set on a quiet road, below a country lane perfect for an evening dog walk and everything is easy to get to with a short drive, especially the Giant’s Causeway.

We had a fabulous time at Drum Gatelodge. The cottage was so comfy, warm and everything you needed was there! The underfloor heating was such a comfort too! Capri our little dog also came along with us and this is such an important thing for us as she comes everywhere with us, she had a ball!

It was lovely to revisit the Drum Gate Lodge in Antrim, and enjoy old-world style (with some cosy modern comforts too!) It’s a great location for exploring the area, with the Giant’s Causeway and sandy beaches within easy reach. And you can bring your dog too!
