Four adult family members shared two rooms here. We were fortunate to be allocated family rooms so had lots of space. The owners were helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage in the morning while we went to the Titanic Museum. The beds were clean and comfortable as was the bathroom. Breakfast was lovely and gluten free bread was... More

Rooms had plenty of space ( we stayed in two rooms ) and were very clean. Great communication with the owners, and they kindly arranged for their housekeeper to welcome us as they couldn't be there when we arrived early in the afternoon. Excellent suggestion for dinner (Ownies), and the best Ulster Fry breakfast we had in Ireland!!

Both myself and my friend stayed for an enjoyable 2 nights in a very spacious and spotless twin room. Superb Ulster Fry breakfast served in a beautiful dining room. Perfectly located for whatever you may need in the wonderful town of Carrickfergus.

We stayed just for one night, but it was great! Lovely designed rooms, lekker breakfast! We could even dry our tent in the backyard! We enjoyed the friendly talk with Raymond, and the tip for the still opened pub was lifesaving ;-)! Thx

Hi Ramon, Thank you both very much for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the breakfast. It was a pleasure to have been able to help you get your tent dried out, it made a pleasant change seeing it out on the line instead of our washing. Take care. Warmest regards, Raymond. More

Raymond and Heather make you feel very welcome, the rooms are large, comfortable and clean. It is the perfect place to stay to see Carrickfergus and the surrounding area. It is very relaxing and Raymond and Heather are very knowledgeable about the area and do their utmost to make the stay one to remember. We will be back. Thank you

Booked two rooms for the crew for a weekend sailing up in Carrickfergus, and we couldn't have been made more welcome - the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the stay was very flexible (we were an hour late arriving and there wasn't a mention) Thanks again, and hope to be back next year!

Hi Ed, It was a pleasure having you and the your crew stay with us. Sorry about all the rain. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. You don't know what you missed by not eating the N. Ireland made crisps we left you, maybe just as well you didn't, don't think you can get them where you live. Lol... More

This was the best B&B we stayed in during our trip to Northern Ireland. Raymond and Heather were very accommodating with everything from storing our bikes to advice on the local area. The breakfast was top notch and our room was very comfortable.

I have been commuting to Carrickfergus the last couple of months and staying at the Keep Guesthouse. It really is a wonderfully comfortable place to stay run by super nice people. No question that I will continue using the Keep Guesthouse as my "home-away-from-home".
