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".

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.
