My wife and I stayed for three nights and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at this beautiful B&B, in a lovely location with splendid views across Ballyholme Bay. We were warmly welcomed by Chris, and shown to our beautiful en-suite room (there is a selection of books and DVDs to choose from if you would like to... More

Spent 3 nights in this superb B&B. Warm welcome and lovely comfortable room with bay view. Breakfast was a feast of delights in a quirky beach themed room with a wide choice of menu. People come from far and wide to sample the many delights of the kitchen. You do not have to be a resident to dine here. I... More

Get your pens out and add "Breakfast at Cairn Bay Lodge" to your bucket list! I have been to this gorgeous gem overlooking the stunning Ballyholme Bay so many times and yet if anyone says "Let's meet for coffee" I hear myself say How about we do breakfast @Cairn Bay instead! The beautiful home; the fabulous Chris and Jenny owners... More

I can only echo all the other 5 star reviews. The rooms were immaculate with great attention to detail. In the hall and sitting room were beautiful fresh flowers. Our sumptuous, superbly cooked breakfasts were decorated with a fresh shamrock or camellia. There was nothing to fault. We will definitely be back.

As soon as stepping in the front door I was very warmly received by Chris. The room was immaculate and very well decorated with vintage furnishings. The bed was super comfortable and the feather duvet was snuggly. Due to my job I practically live in hotels of various sorts and the breakfast here was by far the best I've had... More

As soon as I stepped in the front door it felt like staying with friends, rather than a B&B as I received a very warm welcome. The room was very clean and tidy and exceptionally comfortable and well set out. There was plenty of variety for breakfast and the food was awesome, freshly cooked and tasted delicious! I have stayed... More

The Cairn Bay Lodge is a guest house with a difference, from its very clean and quirky decor showing great attention to detail, set in beautiful location giving the 'Home from Home' experience. The owners Jenny and Chris could not have been more hospitable providing a fantastic supper for a large group of us that would beat most restaurants today.... More

This is more of a boutique hotel than a B&B, refined and quirky at the same time, with great attention to detail. The house is beautiful, and the rooms are cosy and luxurious with lots of extra details. It's a house full of surprises, from the home made cake and extensive DVD library at the top of the stairs, to... More
