Recently stayed in the Old Manse for 4 nights during the NW200 racing week. I really cannot express enough just how please I am with both the B&B and the area in general. Mark and his lovely family really did take care of everything and more than we could possibly have asked for (from initial booking through to leaving), and... More

We were greeted with a welcoming smile and shown to our room on the top floor. There were two twin beds as we walked in and down two steps there was a gorgeous brass bed with a beautiful view over the rooftops down to the sea. The room and ensuite shower room were spotless. The breakfast was delicious and made... More

Hope you will come back to visit us again soon but the summer is already looking very busy!!! Your lovely comments make it all worth while. Enjoyed the chat we had about your work (but I still can't figure it out). Take care and stay longer next time so you have more time to enjoy yourself. Mark More

I had a great stay in this bed and breakfast. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly, and great cooks! The house is gorgeous, with beautiful antique furniture everywhere. The room was very comfortable, clean, and quiet. The area is in prefect walking distance of the city center, and an ideal location for driving to local attractions. Thanks for a... More

I'm glad you had such a pleasant visit and stay here at the Old Manse. Liz has worked hard to maintain as much of the Original character of the house with the appropriate furniture so it will make her day to read how much you appreciated it. Hope the rest of your trip goes well, Mark More

Very accommodating and lovely hosts. Went the extra mile on several occasions. Squeezed several of us in providing extra beds, insisted on ironing our shirts for the wedding and walked in to town in order to book us a taxi. Would highly recommend staying. Rooms were nice and the beds comfy, no fuss service.

We spent the weekend at The Old Manse, and it was excellent. We were a larger than average group, but the owners were incredibly accommodating, regularly going the extra mile for us. The house itself is lovely, with a great atmosphere. Everything from the rooms to the breakfast was brilliant, and we wanted for nothing. I would definitely recommend this... More

Not only is the place beautiful but the family who run it are some of the kindest and considerate people I have met in a long time. Gorgeous bedrooms, delicious hearty breakfasts and an idyllic setting only minutes walk from the sea. We will definitely be back and make sure we recommend to friends and family. Thank you.

Whether you plan to explore Rathlin Island, the North Antrim Coast, or Ballycastle itself, we would strongly recommend the Old Manse. Excellent knowledgeable hosts, comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms, excellent breakfast.

This B&B had a fabulous family atmosphere. The owners weren't around when we checked in, but their son was, and he was welcoming and helpful. We really appreciated the family style breakfasts, where we were able to chat with other visitors. Our visit to Ballycastle was fantastic because the people are so helpful, friendly and welcoming!
