What Past Guests Are Saying
Jill & Peter
This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed at Splash Cottage in august/September 2012 for two weeks. We loved it so much that we have booked it again for august/September this year for 3 weeks! We can hardly wait to arrive and be greeted by cottage owner Paul and his lovely mother-in-law Ruthie who does a fabulous job keeping the cottage in tip-top shape inside.
The bedrooms are all a nice size and have ample storage for your travel gear. As the other reviews say it is "fully equipped" and I can't imagine there would be anything you would need that is not provided and if there is, you are only a short distance away from the shops. If you are looking for the perfect place to stay and I mean perfect you won't be disappointed in Splash Cottage. This year Paul has even arranged for the morning paper to be delivered so we can enjoy a quiet read out on the patio while drinking our coffee. Well now that the secret is out I guess we will be reserving our spot for 2014 as I can see this property has become a hot spot to stay at in the lovely Bangor, County Down. Cheers Paul and Ruthie. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces tomorrow.

Excellent warm Northern Irish welcome awaits
Stayed at Splash Cottage with my partner and 2 children from Dec 16-23, 2012. After our long journey from Toronto via Heathrow to Northern Ireland we arrived at Splash Cottage. We were welcomed with food and wine to help us settle into our stay. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and unique in architecture, we immediately felt at home and the sea views were spectacular from every room. At the end if our 8 night stay we didn't want to leave. The cottage is stocked with everything a guest could need or want and the short walk into Bangor town centre was very convenient as well as the wonderful Jamiaca Inn, a stones throw from the cottage. We have raved to friends and family back in Canada and would stay there again and again.
Precious Family Time Together in Cosy accomodation
Hi Paul, Many thanks for all your help when we came to stay with our daughter, son-in-law and our 6 week old baby grandson in chilly November. It was great to arrive to a cosy house - thanks so much for lighting the fire and putting the central heating on for us. After a long journey from Edinburgh it was great to put our feet up in our "home from home". The bottle of wine revived us! Your house became our base for the week and we thoroughly enjoyed entertaining our friends and family there - they were suitably impressed by the beautiful views and insisted on a guided tour of the property too before leaving. Needless to say it passed the test! Best wishes from the Manning family - we'll be back when baby Idrissa can toddle along to Ballyholme beach.

1st class accomodation
Stayed at splash cottage for a week in June whilst visiting Northern Ireland.
All we can say is that it is first class accommodation both inside and out. Very spacious and modern without losing the charm and character of a seaside cottage and well equipped. All rooms have seaviews. Watch out for the Black Guillemots in the garden, they're hilarious.
Paul the owner was very helpful in both booking and while we were there, pointed us to the best pubs and restaurants. Must visit the Jamaica Inn (100 yards away) for great food, drink and atmosphere.
We'll be back
We can't rate this house and its location highly enough. Four of us stayed for a week in the summer (2012) and just loved the house, the views, the convenience to town and the marina, pubs, restaurants and shopping.
The house is extremely well-equipped with everything you could possibly need, including takeaway menus (yes we did get lazy!), BBQ, microwave etc. The top and middle floors are like a self-contained boutique hotel and were great for my daughter and her partner as they had their own suite of bedroom (with balcony), shower room and sitting room with patio doors to a decked veranda - all with fantastic sea views.
The garden is the most wonderfully relaxing place to dream away the hours and watch the wonderful guillimots, the turnstones at the water's edge (epecially beside the Long Hole, a few minutes walk away), the gulls diving straight down like arrows for fish, and... we even saw a seal a few times! There is always a variety of boats in the bay, from tankers to tiny fishing boats, and Thursdays evenings are magical because the local yacht club comes out in force for races and is an amazing sight against the sunset, Ah yes, the sunsets - the most beautiful you will see anywhere, I promise.
What can I say? - if you find anywhere more magical to stay, I will be amazed.
Ps: Dont' forget the binoculars - thank heavens we didn't!

A very comfortable and well appointed home away from home!
We are two Canadian couples who shared the lovely Splash Cottage for a few days this fall. We arrived late on a blustery evening and were warmly greeted by Paul. There was a fire ready and everything we needed for breakfast in the morning...as well as a few beverages for that evening! We fell in love with the place right then and there!
With bedrooms and bathrooms on separate floors it is a perfect spot for couples travelling together and also for families. Splash cottage is clean, well furnished and equipped. We spent most of our time in the cozy warm kitchen where Paul laid a fire for us each afternoon and we could enjoy the beautiful sea views. We also very much enjoyed the location as we could easily walk to restaurants/pubs and enjoy the shops of Bangor. The Salty Dog (our favourite) is only a 10 minute walk and we also enjoyed The Jamaica Inn which is even closer. Bangor was a great location for us to do day trips to Belfast and the Giant's Causeway. The coastal route recommended by Paul was fabulous!
He is a wonderful host and we highly recommend Splash Cottage to anyone visiting the Belfast area.

Bev, Thank you so much for your kind review. I really enjoyed your company when you were here, and it was a pleasure to light the cosy fire for you.
Maybe you will be back one day!!
