Everything. The hospitality of Ken and Mar and the awesome room (with its own kitchen and a big bathroom) gives you the willingness to stay there more days than expected. The breakfast makes you feel that you are at home. Totally recommended.

Kenny and Mary (hope I spelled their names correctly) were absolutely charming. It was also our first go at a non-Irish breakfast for this trip and it was really good. I won't sugarcoat it, Ballymoney isn't the most interesting and lively city you'll find. However it's an ideal starting point for many attractions, such as the famous old distillery, causeway...

We stayed at Kenmar House recently for a second time, when we were attending a friend's wedding nearby. Once again, Kenny and Mary gave us a warm welcome and were most helpful with directions etc. for the local area. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and along with the delicious breakfast, means that this will be our top... More

The room was fantastic,spacious, very nicely decorated. I had a great night's sleep (bed helped a lot!) and breakfast was excellent. I particularly loved the fresh fruit salad. Both hosts,Ken and Mary, are helpful,kind and do an excellent job. I highly recommend it. Top class!

....... and great host! Squeaky clean, well appointed rooms and an outstanding breakfast. Good (private) parking and a nice shaded outdoor patio too. Ken is ready with any local information desired and his recommendations are spot-on. As good a BnB as I've encountered in decades of use. I also found the location to be most convenient for day tripping to... More

My Sister, Mother and I arrived much later then anticipated but were met by Ken with a warm, friendly welcome. We had a separate little house behind the main house that was absolutely perfect. We had a kitchen stocked with coffee, tea, cookies and all the fixings to make ourselves at home. It was very private and quiet. Beds were... More
