Welcome to Castlerock, in the Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

Castlerock developed as a village following the 1853 opening of the Londonderry to Coleraine railway line, now hailed as one of the finest railway journeys in the world. Castlerock train station was designed by John Lanyon, son of the renowned architect Charles Lanyon who designed Queen’s University Belfast and many other landmark buildings across Northern Ireland. 

Overlooked by the majestic Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne, Castlerock has long been a popular seaside resort. C.S Lewis, author of the world-renowned Chronicles of Narnia stories, is believed to have drawn inspiration from the time he spent here. And today the award-winning beach continues to be a major draw, backed by impressive sand dunes that form part of the championship links course at Castlerock Golf Club.

Separated from Portstewart by The Barmouth, where the River Bann meets the Atlantic Ocean, the Castlerock area is a wonderful wildlife reserve, perfect for coastal walks and birdwatching.
