After a 3 hour drive in the rain we arrived at Hillsea Bed and Breakfast. It had been recommended to us and had phoned ahead to check availability. Marcus took our booking without deposit, his only request, we phone him if we could not make it by 8 pm. A reasonable request. Hillsea was clean, neat and tidy with a... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Marcus showed us to our room and gave us info on restaurants in the area. Our room was clean, quiet and small. We were in a quiet neighbourhood and not too far to walk into town if you did not want to drive to a restaurant in the evening. The bed was comfortable. The room... More

By chance we came to this B&B and were so glad about it! The house is very nice looking. We just adored the staircase! So beautiful! And the view from the room to this peaceful garden .... excellent! Breakfast was perfect, and Marcus was very kind. We hope to come back again one day!

Had a lovely night stay here, friendly owners, comfortable room, modern B & B. Breakfast was fantastic, especially the warm home made scones!!! It's a little out of town, but it's only a 10-15 minute walk in, so best of both worlds really as you get a nice quiet place to relax.

We stayed at this B&B overnight. It was fine. All facilities were clean and working, with a good breakfast in the morning. Nothing more, nothing less. The rooms didn't have a lot of insulation, so noise was a but of a problem when the lady next door was unwell in the middle of the night, but otherwise it was fine.

My friend and I were touring Northern Ireland and just happened to be in Ballycastle for the night. We stumbled across Hillsea and it was perfect! The sleeping arrangements were quite nice, the garden was lovely, and the breakfast was superb! Perhaps the best we had in Northern Ireland. Marcus was EXTREMELY helpful. He recommended a pub within walking distance... More

This is such a lovely B&B - Thomas, the host, is super friendly and makes the best home baked goods. Our room was very spacious, clean and the beds were so comfy! Breakfast was amazing and the location is great as well - quiet road, but within walking distance to the town centre.

Probably our favorite homemade breakfast we had in all of Northern Ireland and Scotland. Excellent! Would definitely come back. Also went down to the local pub Oconners. Had a blast! Loved ballycastle. Want to move... More

A warm b&b in the seaside! We spent the a night, and it became better than a hotel! Marcus help us with thousands of things! We were running out of £ and he let us pay with €, and even changed us some coins! He served a complete breakfast WITH STRAWBERRIES! The house was really big, and the rooms quite... More

I visited "Hillsea" with my family last week. Markus greeted us very warm in quite cold and windy evening. He was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and nicely appointed with large bathroom. Breakfast was delicious, probably the best i've had in recent time. All fresh, well cooked and warm scones were a lovely surprise. Even my... More
