Painters, photographers, bird watchers and writers find a paradise when they visit the region, as do sailors and beachcombers. Simply a perfect playground, all easily reached from The Anglers Return as your home base.

Staying at the Anglers Return

Nestled at the foot of Derradda Hill, overlooking the famous Ballynahinch River, The Anglers Return was built in the 1800s as a sporting lodge, then owned by the Indian Prince and famous cricketer, the Maharajah Ranjitsinhji, and since 1954 is now the home of Lynn Hill and her family. The house is a wonderfully peaceful and charming guesthouse enhanced by the log fires and beautiful gardens. The architecture and decoration is authentic and unspoiled, with original walls and floors, low ceilings and a cottage-style ambience. Outside, the grounds are highlighted by a profusion of flowers, stone walls, beautiful river views and garden paths. Otters and seals are frequently seen in the tidal waters of the river in front of the house.

Roundstone, a lively picturesque fishing village, with many good restaurants, pubs, traditional Irish music, craft shops and galleries, is only 7 minutes away, south-west along the coast road. With wonderful beaches, the coastal area is a delight. Read More...
