A beautiful old home, lovingly restored to a high shine, a quick walk to town and to the harbor. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Stunning views from the bedroom. Lots of attention to detail--like fresh strawberries to along with the "Full Irish" breakfast. Thank you for a lovely stay!

It was great having you both and I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast (although I am a great fan of a large Irish breakfast I can appreciate the power of fresh fruit and cereal). I hope the rest of your trip is going well. Maybe you will pay us another visit again. Thanks for the high rating, Mark More

My wife and I rented a room for us and our young son (age 9), and this was the perfect spot. The room was large, clean, and with the lovely view that was promised. The beds, and even the sitting chairs, were solid and comfortable. The bath was modern and first class. However, the best part of the stay was... More

Hi Andrew, so glad you came to stay as had such a good sense of humor. The wedding party that stayed had a great day and what a small world it is when you actually knew the groom! If you are back this way again from Texas please look us up. Thanks also for the kind review. Mark More

My wife and I stayed here in mid June and were very pleased. We had a large suite with a sitting room and a private balcony with a view of Murlough Bay and Fair Head. Mark and family are wonderful people. The breakfast was outstanding and the rates were very reasonable. We have stayed in several B&B's across Ireland and... More

Thank you so much for responding with such high praise. It will make Elizabeth's day to see how much you both enjoyed staying here. It looks like summer has finally arrived but at least you had a couple of good weather days to enjoy the balcony. Thanks again for such a great feedback, Mark More

It was a pleasure having you both here to stay and I'm still impressed at you managing the Giants Causeway run first thing in the morning before breakfast. Thankfully summer seems to have finally arrived so I hope the rest of your trip is going good as you should be at Donegal now. Thanks for the great review. All the... More

We started our two week holiday at The Old Manse, staying for two nights. Mark and his good wife ( so sorry I forgot your name ) are friendly hosts and supplied tips on places of interests in the area. The room and breakfasts were excellent and when we made plans to return to Ballycastle, there was only one place... More

And it was a shame we couldn't accommodate you for both days - it is extremely busy for this time of year despite the lousy weather. I will pass... More

Stayed here after a long cycle through and over the beautiful antrim glens. The room was a real surprise with my own seating area and deck, the fittings where really first class, all very tasteful, lovely hot shower and comfortable bed. Mark was very helpful and pointed me to some local eateries only up the road. Breakfast was delicious, great... More

Hi John and thank you for that kind feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay- pity the weather was against you on your leaving day, I'm sure it makes cycling less fun in the rain. On your next visit I promise lots of sunshine and you should give Rathlin a go- it's perfect for the bike. All the best, Mark More

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.

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.
