We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and bright and felt like home. Comfortable beds, almost didn't want to get out of them! The owners were great, they gave us pointers on what to do and where to go and how to get there - even drove us to the train on a rainy morning! Great people... More

Booked this B&B on a local recommendation and glad we did. Owners really friendly they were in the middles of decorating the dining room but still welcomed us in and apologised for the upheaval. This did not really bother us in the slightest. Nice room, was offered late checkout with us being the only couple due to the redecoration. Lovely... More

we happened upon 'The Keep". We were driving and started to get late as we got closer to Belfast. Heather answered the door and we found ourselves talking to Raymond and Heather for some time, before checking in. They love a chat as do we. Raymond helped with our heavy cases. Heather suggested we consider 2 nights to enable us... More

Only our second full day of driving in Ireland and we could not locate some printed directions we had for The Keep Guest House. Raymond heard our distress over the phone and offered to stand at the intersection to "wave" us in! His red t-shirt was ideal for the task. This was just the first of the kind and hospitable... More

We were not planning on ending up in Carrickfergus the night we stayed. We had been on the road for hours due to a detour that led us far off from where we intended to be. In desperate need for a place to stay we called The Keep and not only were they accommodating they also helped navigate us to... More

The self-catered Acorn House condo looks out onto a scenic marina. Immaculate, great location, lovely owners, good price. We will recommend it to all our friends. 2bedroom, 2 bath, everything you need to cook and enjoy. 1 block from the best medieval castle on the island.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at The Keep. Ray and Heather are wonderful hosts, the accommodation was very comfortable and the location is ideal for accessing local restaurants, and places of interest. We highly recommend it!

Very nice owners who made us feel at home. Gave us a good idea of what we should see while in town. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. Easy walking distance to several local attractions as well as restaurants.

Spent one night here at the beginning of a Northern Ireland holiday. It wasn't the best place we stayed in but the welcome (from Heather) was very warm, the room was fine, clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. We were recommended to eat at 'Ownies' which was a good choice and one which we would not have known... More

We stayed at the Keep, unfortunately for only 2 nights - wish we could have styed longer. The hosts were so helpful and accommodating, and gave us excellent advice on where to visit, where to eat adn how much it would cost us! The rooms were really beautifully decorated, comfortable and warm. The firt morning we had the Ulster fry,... More
