Came here after an absolute dreadful experience in the marine hotel Ballycastle. The food was top class could not fault anything with the meal nor the staff, the young girl that served us was soo attentive and could not do enough for us unlike the staff we previously encountered in the Marine. The setting was beautiful and the atmosphere also... More

Stayed in the back house as we needed large rooms for our family. Beds were comfortable, and quiet since we were in the back. Breakfast was good. Service was very friendly and they have a restaurant and pub attached which is convenient if you are tired and don't want to search for food and drink.

Our first night of a week of hiking in Northern Ireland with 7 ladies and we had a nice dinner + a very relaxing sleep in this quiet little town. Everything was very clean and the people very helpful.

Stayed for BnB and an evening meal for one night. Room appeared recently refurbished, so was clean, modern and fresh. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, but we found the bed a bit soft for our taste. Restaurant also seemed refurbished. I have to say that the designer of the refurbishment must like purple. Very few people using the restaurant at... More

Went here with my mother for lunch, she had chilli chicken pitta and I had chicken and bacon Caesar salad. The food was great but the only problem was the music they were playing in the background. It was far too loud. If it were turned down a bit everything would have been perfect.

We have driven past The Fullerton Arms lots of times but had never called in. We decided to call for a meal and were very well pleased. As soon as we went in the staff were very friendly and attentive without being "in your face" every two minutes. The food was very good and the menu varied, we will certainly... More

I stayed here a few month ago with my sister. I'm sad to see that others may not have had such a pleasant experience at this place. We came in with friends who had been there the night before and loved it so much they brought us along for a second night. There was live music in the bar area.... More
