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

Great place to stay. Staff was friendly and the rooms were nice and clean! There was an choice with breakfast, which was a nice break from breakfast cereal. We were only a few minutes from the ferry to Rathlin island. This is a must I would absolutely stay here again.

Despite booking eight months ago, was allocated a tiny room which fronted onto a busy main road meaning we couldn't open the windows whilst in there. The bathroom was only adequately clean, cracked tiles and a mirror hung too low to shave and a toilet seat which wouldn't stay up - all very disappointing. This accommodation would have to be...

Booked an ensuite family room for an overnight stay in July 2012. It was spacious with a double and three single beds. Breakfast was cooked to order and the host was very helpful with directions and suggestions for our local visits. Off street parking to front and rear of the property. We would stay here again. Recommended.
