About the project

In 2017, the Wards and a small team of highly skilled individuals undertook the restoration of the old rectory, breathing new life into the historic building. 6 years later, the rectory stands as ‘Lagom’, providing a welcoming and memorable experience for guests to enjoy.


Lagom is a community-focused space that is open to anyone looking to host workshops, classes, or events that align with its deeply rooted ethos. The lodge welcomes individuals and organizations who share its values of balance, sustainability, and mindfulness, offering its walls as a gathering place for like-minded individuals. At Lagom, the community comes first, and the lodge is committed to supporting and promoting initiatives that benefit both locals and visitors alike.

Absolutely loved our stay. The rooms, the shared area, location, the lot. Said on arrival we'd book again and we did, for the next night. I'd also like to add that we ran into some car trouble en route and the staff were able to assist us with someone to recover the car. Thank you so much for that, very much appreciated. Fully intent on staying again, thank you 😊 Rooms 5.0 Service 5.0 Location 5.0 Hotel highlights: Quiet · Great value · High-tech

We had a fantastic long weekend staying in Smugglers loft at Stay Lagom. The apartment is lovely and is well kitted out with everything you could possibly need. Stay Lagom is a really nice calm environment to come back to each day after exploring the amazing Antrim coast. Jordan was a fantastic host and always available for any questions you might have.

Amazing place to stay, unwind and feel like home! The property has a rich history and has been preserved with an insane attention to detail. It’s a perfect place to base yourself to explore the north coast of NI or hide away on a ‘work-from-anywhere’ trip! Rooms 5.0 Service 5.0 Location 5.0
