Excellent hosts in Mark and Liz. They really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and your visit to this gorgeous area memorable. Make sure you visit Rathlin Island to see how nature is making a come back with help of RSPB.

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!

I must apologise for taking so long to respond to your feedback. We have been kept busy over the last few months since you stayed with us just after the Lamas Fair in August and only now have I had time to catch up. Thank you for your visit and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sure the rest... More

We stayed in the old manse while touring the giants causeway and the northern coast. First the welcome was warm and the room was amazing with toys for our 4 year old and a separate part for her within the room. The views were beautiful. Then the owner was a wealthy source of local knowledge of places to visit, things... More

My wife and I hiked the Giant's Causeway last weekend when we met the wettest weekend so far this summer. After a 5 hour walk from the Causeway to Carrick-a-rede, we were glad to get to our B&B. This very same weekend saw accommodation all booked up so we were particularly grateful to our friend who organised it all. Mark... More

This is the first place we stayed on our hiking tour in County Antrim. Mark was so warm and welcoming. He upgraded us to a wonderful room and talked to us about the local restaurants and history. We would stay here again!
