Castlerock is a seaside village in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It is situated five miles west of Coleraine, and is part of Causeway Coast and Glens district. The village is serviced by the Belfast to Derry/Londonderry railway line.

“The village offers all the pleasures of unspoilt seaside – surfing, and walks on the sand amid, woods, ruins and gardens of the National Trust’s Downhill Demesne.”

It boasts cliff walks dominated by the Mussenden Temple, one of the most photographed scenes in Northern Ireland, and particularly popular with Game of Thrones tourists.

There is also a Golf Club with both 9 and 18-hole links courses and a bowling club.
