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.

A lovely place run by lovely people. We are a band, Furnace Mountain, and we are traveling with two kids and Grandma and were very much in need of big rest and a big breakfast. This place provided both and then some. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The host and hostess were extremely friendly while also very respectful... More

I am an italian nurse, i`ve been in Ballymoney because i `ve started to work there. I was alone in the village, but the owners have revealed beatiful people very helpful. The accomodation was of FIRST CLASS as was the breakfast and I enjoy the days which i`ve passed there. Thank you Mary and Kenny.

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...
