We were extremely lucky to find this wonderful place. The rooms are in immaculate condition, very clean and spacious, breakfast is delicious and the choice is great. Kenny and Mary were so friendly and welcoming, we didn't want to leave and would stay for the whole day chatting with them!:) The best B&B we have ever been!

Had a two night stay here to visit Joeys Bar, his memorial garden and grave. We had a stand alone room that was in fact a small well appointed apartment to the rear of their immaculate property. It was spotlessly clean with a well stocked kitchen and comfy beds. Ken and Mary are great hosts and the breakfast was very... More

This is definitely the best B&B we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in a lot! We stayed for 4 nights and felt the price was a bargain for such a great place. The location is handy, only a short drive to all the popular sights and tourist attractions. The Giant's Causeway, the funny twisted trees and caves featured... More

Lovely people, excellent breakfasts, rooms, facilities and service generally. Nothing was too much trouble for Kenny & Mary. Quiet house, though it is on a main road, only about 200 yards from town centre. Secluded private parking behind house, No stairs, so very suitable for a couple of geriatrics like us.

After a friendly greeting we were led into our spacious clean bedroom. If you have any question about the area just ask Kenny. He knows everything and he went out of his way to explain everything to us. Breakfast was the BEST we had in our whole trip. If the wind blows me in again I'll 300% stay in Ken-Mare... More

Ken-Mar house is by far the most welcoming, warm and friendly establishment I have ever stayed in. This was my sixth, I think, visit to Ken-Mar and it certainly will not be my last as long as Ken and Mary are welcoming visitors.

stayed last weekend in the annex part of the building. We did our own breakfast as there was a shop across the road. All in all it did everything we needed and when we go back next year to the town will stay here.
