About Gillian Thompson
After spending 20 years in London, I decided to return to Northern Ireland in 2004 and settled on the Antrim Coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty and rugged coastline. Purchasing The Coach House, which was already converted into three self contained units I knew this would be a good opportunity to start the self catering business and since then The Coach House Self Catering Apartments have been operating successfully since 2007. I lives in one of the apartments, therefore am normally on site to help if necessary.
Why Gillian Thompson chose Carnlough
The Coach House is an historic building and was originally the stopping point for the horse drawn coaches along The Antrim Coast. Housing three separate apartments, of which two are self catering units, The Loft Apartment and The Stables Apartment. Surrounded by numerous historic landmarks and Game of Thrones had a heavy presence at Garron Point during filming of the series. Again for Game of Thrones fans various filming locations are either within walking distance or a short drive away. This area is one of Antrim Coast and Glens Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the breathtaking views and uninterrupted sea views stretching over to The Mull of Kintyre in Scotland from the accommodation are spectacular. Located halfway between Carnlough and Glenariff (The Queen of the Glens). A perfect base to discover the unspoilt coastline, towns and villages, history and heritage, top visitor attractions and places of interest, The Giants Causeway just an hours drive away and of course numerous iconic Game Of Thrones film locations. With panoramic sea views over The Irish Sea to The Mull of Kintyre in Scotland.

Great Coastal Stay
This was a nice one bedroom apartment just outside Carnlough on the North Antrim Coast highway. Beautiful view over the North Irish Sea towards Scotland and you can see Mull of Kintyre right from your lounge window.
nice location, house is ok, with good equiped kitchen
the owner shows a lot of hospitality
Nice accommodation e
Very good accommodation only complaint the people upstairs am were very noisy when walking about .
Lovely cottage- fantastic base for touring
We used the cottage as a base for our motorbike tour of Northern Ireland. Excellent roads to all the tourist attractions. The views from the cottage were stunning with a fantastic sunset one night. The food welcome pack was very handy, there are some small local shops around with quite a good range of food, but after a full day riding it was nice to settle in with a brew. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone considering staying in this lovely area of the island
Amazing Antrim Coast
We spent 4 days visiting Ireland and thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather stayed dry all week and the view out of the Coach House window is unmatchable. The apartment has everything you can need and although it's right on the main Causeway Coastal Road, traffic noise isn't a problem.
Compact apartment ideally situated for visiting the Antrim Coast
This compact property is a well appointed conversion of an old building. It is ideally located for visiting the Glens of the Antrim Coast and the Causeway Coast is within reach. It has the disadvantage of being sited directly on the A2 coastal scenic road but double glazing and thick walls reduce traffic noise to acceptable levels. It overlooks the sea and the Scottish coast is easily visible on clear days. Being on the ground floor the most annoying feature was that occupants of the apartment above could be heard moving about. The apartment was comfortable, clean and fresh and a basic welcome pack was provided. We had a very enjoyable week and would recommend it to friends for shorter stays.
