Two and three bedroom self-catering accommodation located a 25 minute drive from the Irish and World Masters venue at Belfast Indoor Bowls Club.
Rated 4 Star by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and 5 Star by our guests, why not enjoy your stay in Northern Ireland at Drumlin Lane where you can relax in the rolling County Down countryside. Alternatively, if you can’t beat your friends at bowls, challenge them on our pool and table tennis tables, or take your frustration out on the trampoline. Dine out in the nearby village of Hillsborough at the famous Plough, or stroll round the gardens at the Royal residence at Hillsborough Castle. Get out of the city, and see a some more of Northern Ireland on your next trip, whether that be a bowling weekend of something a little longer.
