We stayed here on july 27 2014 for 3 nights. We arrived by bus in the city of Bushmills and took a taxi to the B&B. When we arrived here we were well welcomed by Mrs. Truffeli who show us our room and made tea for us. The place is walking distance to the Giants Causeway and to the bus... More

This is a hidden treasure. This is with in walking distance of the Giants Causeway. My group walked the causeway coast trail and ended up at the Giants Causeway at sunset. I loved the breakfasts in the morning. There was the usual cereal, fruit and yogurt. What was outstanding was the cold meats, cheeses, and breads. I have to say... More

I stayed at the Carnside with one child and two teens, and we loved it! We had 2 attached rooms, which was perfect for us. The buffet breakfast was hearty and delicious with fresh breads and lots of choice. The inn is cozy and very clean, with coffee/tea/cookie stations in every corridor. We were welcomed to use the dining room... More

Had a wonderful stay at this BB. We were a family of four traveling to see the Causeway (including 2 young children). The ladies running the BB, greeted us at the door and made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. The family room that sleeps four is a good size with one full bed flanked by two twin beds. The...

We had to visit the North Coast at short notice and my wife was given the number by the tourist information centre. The whole experience was great, the views (despite the weather!) are terrific, we were made very welcome. The whole place is absolutely spotless and so quiet too. We had a great nights sleep and due to the early... More

Just back from Carnside, having stayed 2 nights. Arrived to find the most fantastic panoramic views from B&B or Guest House. Knowing the North Coast for many years, it would be extremely difficult to match the views from Carnside. Sitting at Breakfast I could see the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre in one direction and Portrush & the White Rocks from... More

The setting, overlooking the Giant's Causeway, was impressive and the place was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful. When we arrived and had to ask for a slightly different room configuration, they helped us graciously. I dealt mostly with Frances and I found her intelligent, attractive and charming! Who could ask for more?

Our stay was very pleasant in all respects. The view of the surrounding countryside was gorgeous. Our hostess was very accommodating. Very nice rooms and common area. Great guidance on activities in the area as well as a good local pub referral.

We only stayed for one night as we wanted to be close to the Giants Causeway, so it was very convenient. Everything was fine but as I had bad knees from too much climbing, the stairs was a bit much. All the furniture is old fashioned and in some ways charming, (but I don't like old stuff) however all with... More
