Same warm welcome, immaculate accommodation and epic breakfast as always: only difference this time is that I was promoted to a big double bed all to myself. Perhaps Jackie is taking pity on me due to my advancing years and saving me from the effort of climbing the stairs ....

Very nice place, reasonably priced. Walking distance from the railway station (Stena bus to Cairnryan leaves from the station's west side). If you're going to or coming from Belfast, this is a good place to stop for the evening.

I was arriving late but this did not cause any issues. We were leaving before breakfast is normally served but an earlier breakfast was offered and gratefully accepted. Room was perfect and very clean. Suggestions offered as to where an evening meal could be obtained. Very helpful and accomodating.

Just stayed one night at this lovely bed and breakfast but could happily have stayed a week. Spacious, warm welcoming room where everything has been thought of. Spotless bathroom had everything you could need, even cotton wool balls and cotton buds. Folder with lots of information, fantastic food (loads of choice) and private parking. Jackie couldn't have been friendlier or... More

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Turas-Mara Guest House, my experience from begining to end was excellent. As my flight was due to land early morning, I emailed to enquire about an earlier check in and this was no problem which was great, saved hanging about in the awful weather! Upon my arrival, I was met by Jackie who was welcoming... More

Really enjoyed our stay. We agree with all the positive comments from other guests. Best choice of breakfast I've seen. One meat-eater and one vegetarian both happy! No complaints at all. Very friendly.

Stayed here for a couple of nights recently and this bed and breakfast could put a lot of hotels to shame. Our room was spotlessly clean, lovely and warm,and lots of room to hang our clothes up. Our en-suite room had a hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and even cotton buds. Tea and coffee, water and biscuits were also provided.... More

Our two night stay was an enjoyable experience thanks to the warm welcome we were given and the excellent breakfast we received. Nothing was too much trouble for Jackie and highly recommend this B & B to others.

We enjoyed our stay at A'Turas-Mara in September 2014. Our accommodations were clean and the hospitality was without reproach. The one thing that was missing was the ability to charge our North American iPad/iPhone. It would have been nice if they had a power converter and adapter combination to accommodate North American travelers. These may be purchased in Canada for... More

We stayed for one night. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and our room was lovely - clean, cosy and bright. Our breakfasts were good and filling, and my special dietary requirements (vegan) were very well catered for. The location of the B&B is very central, and easy to find from the railway station.
