We just spent 4 nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The Whins, Ballycastle is ideally situated for exploring Northern Ireland's beautiful coastline. Nestled in a farm area, creates the opportunity to have a quiet night's rest. The whole house is very clean and the new bathroom (Dunluce) is spotless. The breakfasts exceeded all expectations, worth mentioning here are the... More

This may be the best B&B we have ever experienced! We were greeted by the most healthy and happy chickens, a friendly black lab and by the lovely owners, Niki and Paul. We were two couples and The Whins B&B was perfect us. The two rooms and accompanying bathrooms and sitting room were spotless and simply but tastefully decorated. Crisp... More

All I can say is wow! This was the best of the best on our trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. The rooms are beautiful. They even have great, plush towels in the bathroom which we found nowhere else on our trip. The breakfast was the best we had. Eggs used come from their own chickens and everything they served...

We stayed at The Whins just last week for 4 nights and I would highly recommend it. The room was lovely and comfortable, Niki and Paul are great hosts and it is a very good location for getting around.

I have very little to add that hasn't already been said, wonderful location, lovely service, and a comfortable, well cared-for room. Niki and Paul are a fantastic couple who genuinely care for their guests; and a big shout out for Brian the dog!

This place is wonderful. Very comfortable and clean. Near the Dark Hedges, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, and Dunluce Castle. We arrived early and had sandwiches, scones, and wheaten bread which were the best I had ever eaten. The breakfast was outstanding and I loved the soda farl. Then we had her picnic lunches to go and enjoyed them on the way... More

Niki and Paul have created a beautiful, warm, welcoming B&B. We were on hiking tour and Paul picked us up in nearby Ballintoy and drove us to the inn. Then they arranged for a taxi for our kids to go to a local pub to listen to Irish music. And, the eggs that Paul prepared for us for breakfast were... More
