I visited Whitecastle from Brooklyn, New York for the very first time and still have warm and wonderful memories of my visit. Colm and Francis were amazing hosts. They made my visit feel like I was visiting family. The Amble Inn is perfectly located close to the quaint town with shops, close to the beach and at the foot of... More

The Amble In B&B is a lovely place to stay and was perfect for what we needed. We stayed here for a wedding in the area and everything was very smooth, the Shimna room we had was lovely and the location was great. Most importantly we were made to feel welcome by Colm and Frances nothing was too much trouble.... More

We really enjoyed or stay at the Amble In. Colm and Frances are very welcoming and really friendly. This is exactly what makes this B&B so great, the human contact. Many other B&B's are maybe a bit better for the price but are to anonymous for me. We traveled for 10 days in Northern Ireland, stayed 2 nights @ Amble... More

Colm is a friendly host, able to give lots of advice about the area. The B&B is well situated in Newcastle and is perfectly ok in all respects. My reservation is that it's not better than ok, despite the relatively premium pricing. A pet hate is cheap pre-packaged butter and jams at breakfast, which is what we got. Our room... More

Colm and Frances are always welcoming and friendly - nothing is too much trouble - we've worked in the area often and would always choose to stay here - we're treated like members of the family. Clean comfortable rooms, very reasonable price, great breakfast.

The Amble In B&B is a very nice place to stay. Our room was very lovely and Colm and Frances are so friendly people.

Hi Martin and Katrin Thank you for your fantastic review, It is fantastic when people while on a trip round Ireland almost a year ago remember the B&B and the host names.

We stayed here April 2015 for a wedding in town. From booking through to the stay everything was very smooth. The room was lovely (we were in Shimna), breakfast was nice and location is really good for going into Newcastle. We'd definitely stay again.

We actually stayed here in December of 2012 but that wasn't an option to say. We think about Newcastle and the Amble In often. We were late getting in and Colm was waiting outside to make sure we found the B&B and to tell us where to park. They both stayed up late chatting with us and offered to take... More
