We absolutely loved this place and Niki, everything was perfect and taken care of. The house is very warm, cozy and very clean. Although we only stayed one night we really felt like at home. I would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a quiet retreat after a long day of driving/hiking.

Dear Lorenzo, I'm responding here as I don't have an email address for you, but I wanted to thank you for leaving this review! I'm so glad you both enjoyed your brief stay with us, especially since it was on a 'room only' basis. It was lovely to meet you both, and I just hope you will come back another... More

Niki and Paul are such friendly hosts. We arrived late afternoon after about a 5 min drive from Ballycastle into the countryside, and were welcomed with coffee and biscuits. We stayed in the Dunseverick room which has recently been renovated. We had a view over the farmland with chickens wandering around, and the bedroom was toasty warm, clean and beautifully... More

Having stayed in several B&Bs whilst doing a tour of NI, this was by far the best B&B. The room was lovely, large and immaculate with a seperate dressing room and ensuite. Niki and Paul go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the breakfast, taken in the lovely breakfast room with views of the fields, was... More

What a beautiful place! Thank you very much for your outstanding hospitality, the fantastic breakfast and the delicious biscuits, Nici & Paul. We've enjoyed every minute in your B&B and didn't want to leave today. Thank you also for your recommendation for Dunfanaghy! The rusty oven was a great experience and the pizza was excellent!

I stayed recently on my own at The Whins, while walking along and near the Causeway coast. In particular, I echo what other guests have said about Niki and Paul's warm welcome and delicious food. I wholeheartedly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Niki and Paul are very lovely and made us feel at home. The food was really wonderful. We had aspargus soup on arrival, slefmade bread and pancakes - really fine dining. Niki was helpful whenever we asked, explained where to find Game of Thrones filming locations and helped booking the Bushmills special Whiskey tasting.

I stayed last month at The Whins with a friend and loved the whole experience. Coming straight from the nearby Causeway, Niki and Paul were welcoming right away and made us feel at home. The room was immaculate and had a large en suite bathroom as well as a dressing room. It had a lovely view of the countryside, a... More

We had booked the Whins B&B as a surprise trip with our friends from the USA, and everything - from the beautiful views and home-made cookies - to Niki, Paul's and Brian's hospitality - was just perfect!

Friendly, Clean and accommodating every need with a smile. One of the best B&B's we have stayed at in our world travels! If ever we return this way would stay here again. Bed was comfortable. The view relaxing and quite. Breakfast was wonderful and so many choices.

With reviews this good, expectations were high and it says a lot that I still wasn't prepared for the phenomenon that is the Whins B&B. Niki went out of her way to accommodate our kids and make us feel like special guests. After staying here, we spent a few nights in nice hotels around Ireland but no matter where we... More
