Magherintemple Lodge

Places to Stay | Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland.

The Irish Landmark Trust have completed conservation work on Magherintemple Lodge, a wonderful place to stay in the seaside town of Ballycastle in Co. Antrim.

Magherintemple is interesting not only because of its architectural history but also because of its historical importance as the seat of the Casement family. The Gatelodge was built in the Scottish Baronial style in 1874. The gate lodge provides a fitting entrance to the estate as it echoes the style of the main house. It is of a simple three bay construction with a steeply pitched roof with sawtooth cresting.

True to the Trust’s philosophy, as little as possible has been altered. All the existing rooms in the lodge remain as they are and have been transformed into a comfortable living room and two double bedrooms. The existing yard walls are retained and a bathroom and kitchen/dining area inserted behind them.

The purpose of The Irish Landmark Trust is to save buildings of architectural merit or historical importance that would otherwise be lost forever. The Trust undertakes the conservation & restoration of these buildings and sympathetically converts them into self-catering holiday homes thus ensuring their future survival.

  1. I hope I am corresponding with the Casement family? My Uncle Roger Casement Sinnott was named after Roger Casement by his father, the Commandant in Wexford in 1916. We are having a family gathering in mid February this year ‘for the year that’s in it’. Would it be at all possible to send him a little letter of acknowledgement of this fact?? He is 89 and the last of his family alive.

    I think it would be great and an acknowledgement of the regard in which Roger Casement was held throughout the country.

    • Hello Eithne

      Thanks for your comment. We have no involvement with the Casement family. This website is a collection of 360° virtual tours from around Ireland.
      I’m not sure who you would need to speak to in all honesty. Perhaps someone at the Irish Landmark Trust who manage Magherintemple Gate Lodge.

      Hope you get sorted.
