We stayed three night at The Whins and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made to feel at home, we had a modern bedroom with lovely views of the surrounding countryside and a very comfortable bed. We also had a private bathroom which we really appreciated. Niki was particularly helpful providing us with information on places to eat and visit... More

In the morning our hostess Nikki then demonstrated that she was also of... More

We stayed for 2 nights last weekend and it was the best B&B we stayed at in Ireland. Not only was the bed the most comfortable, we were made to feel at ease and very welcome. Nikki - your bread is amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and we were even given chairs to sit outside as the weather was... More

Recently had a second visit to the Whins B&B, and was equally delighted to spend a lovely weekend. Comfortable, quiet, great breakfast, great hosts. Close to Ballycastle and Bushmills and not forgetting the fab coast line... Enjoy :) Many thanks to Niki and Paul.

I stayed here for two nights and Niki and Paul were great. They were welcoming and friendly and full of local knowledge. It's not many places that boast freshly laid eggs for breakfast and they were delicious. The room was warm and comfortable and I slept soundly. I would stay here again and I look forward to my return visit... More

After finishing the first 3 weeks of our 1 month travel through beautiful Ireland we stayed at "The Whins" for 2 nights. We booked the room with enclosed bathroom and were quite happy about the choice we made. We had plenty of space, a heavenly comfy bed and a super clean room.

This was the first B&B we stayed in as we began our two week holiday and it was a delight. Niki & Paul were very welcoming and are very gracious hosts. It is not far from Ballycastle--a nice drive in the countryside. Niki had yummy sandwiches with homemade bread and hot tea & coffee waiting for us when we arrived.... More

We spent three nights at The Whins and had a lovely time. Paul and Niki were incredible hosts. We found out that we had lived in the same city in England at the same time. The food was exquisite,especially the Irish soda bread. We would certainly look to come back if we ever get back to Northern Ireland.
