My wife and I stayed at An Caislean in July. The manager was very helpful and went an extra mile to advise about the local restaurants and places to visit. He also helped us to rent bicycles for our trip along the Causeway coast. Our room was quite spacious and very clean. Great breakfast! Totally recommend!

The manger was very helpful, even before we got to the hotel, providing clear directions. When we arrived he was very helpful. The rooms were clean, and warm. The hotel's location was excellent, within easy walking distance of a few restaurants. It was also near the boats for trips to Rathlin Island. Well worth visiting, highly recommended!

We stayed here to attend a local wedding and were not disappointed. The room (5) was very comfortable with everything we needed (including a hair dryer which I had forgotten). The location was perfect with a short stroll to the town and seafront. The breakfast was a winner (full Irish for my husband and vegetarian for myself). I would highly... More

The B&B was easy to find in a nice location that was really close to Giants causeway and the rope bridge. We were so close that we were at the rope bridge when it opened and were the second pair to cross! The room was nice but had a strange smell. It had a lot of storage and was very... More

Stayed one night with family. The position is good at walking distance both to the marina and to the town centre. The room was confortable, the breakfast plentiful. Our host helped us with luggage, and gave us breakfast very early in the morning because we had to go to Dublin Airport. Not far from Giant's Causeway.

We loved our two night stay here mid cycle ride around NI. We arrived in glorious weather which deteriorated overnight to wind and heavy rain. So spent our day off mouching round Ballycastle which is lovely town full of interesting information. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a large lounge for guests. Our hosts were great really... More

We stayed here for 3 night's. Room was good size, clean but pretty basic. Hoast was very friendly & provided lots of useful info for exploring the Causeway coast. BUT room was overpriced, you can get more for less elsewhere Ireland

My wife (Sheila) and I stayed at the An Caislean guest house from Saturday 7th. September to Saturday 14th. September 2013. Mr and Mrs White made us very welcome. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Every morning there was a fantastic choice for breakfast. I would recommend this guest house to all without hesitation excellent value for money.... More

We stayed for one night during the annual Lammas fair. Knowing that this B&B would be running at max capacity, we were prepared to accept a few shortcomings here and there. Having read some negative older reviews, we set our expectations - wrongly as it happened. We were pleasantly surprised. It is run as a well oiled machine. On their... More
