What a fab way to spend our anniversary, close enough to home for the kids but a brilliant atmosphere, fabulous welcome and beautiful breakfast. Very reasonable price including breakfast and close to the restaurants and cinema in Carrickfergus.

While working near Carrickfergus, we booked into 'the keep' BNB. We received a warm welcome from Raymond. The rooms were warm, with all mod cons, en suite, Tea and coffee and enough toiletries. Lovely shower, good supply of towels. Bed was very comfortable and breakfast was what to need to set you up for the day. We will be back,... More

This is my third time staying at The Keep, Took friends in August and my family in November for the weekend. I can honestly say this place is the loveliest guest house I have stayed in. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, particularly the family rooms. We have always had the front rooms with a view of Carrickfergus castle. The... More

I stayed at the keep guesthouse for three nights and they were the nicest hosts you could ever have. Nothing was too much trouble and the customer service was exemplary. The room was excellent along with all of the relevant facilities and the breakfast was amazing. Highly recommended. Scott

Booked this as part of a touristy/family visit over the Valentine's weekend. Booking process was easy, you could tell immediately talking to Heather on the phone that this was a friendly place to stay - the owners also own The Keep Grill (see my review of that, well worth a visit) and consequently are not always around if you arrive...

We booked a double room for 3 nights, but were given a family room which was very large, beautifully decorated and very clean. Despite facing onto a busy road the secondary glazing meant that we didn't have any traffic noise. The couple who run The Keep are lovely and Paula who does the breakfasts is an absolute gem, and oh... More
