Right in the heart of Portrush, Ridge Cottage is on a quiet street, 5 minutes from stunning beaches, Barry's amusements, the Harbour and Ramore restaurants. With a private gated drive-way (parking is at a premium in Portrush for residents never mind tourists) and a little private outside space to catch the occasional ray of sunshine that hits Portrush. We think this is a pretty unique property. Around 100 years old but fully modernised, We love this little house, we hope you will too.
