Rae greeted us with such warmth and could not have done enough for us. We were only staying one night and were the only guests but I feel the service given would have been the same were the B and B full.. We had tea in the lovely sitting room and Rae recommended a local restaurant for our evening meal... More

Rae and John epitomize the role of perfect innkeepers...warm, welcoming smiles, and a willingness to do anything to make your stay a special memory. Their home is absolutely lovely, and after spending two nights with them we were sad to leave. We were walking along the coastal causeway route, so after exhausting days on our feet, it was a particular... More

We spent 2 nights at the Cottesmore and it just wasn't long enough! We received a warm welcome from Rae who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, our room was gorgeous and immaculately clean. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice covering all you could possibly want. Rae also told us some lovely places to visit which we hadn't... More

We stayed two night. Rae was an excellent host. She gave us lots of information on places to see in the area (including a few we were not planning on seeing) and we enjoyed all of them. Breakfasts were very good. They even opened up the dining room, when we decided to bring home dinner one night. Definitely would stay... More

We stayed at this B and B for one night after a wedding in Donegal. All the positive reviews are spot on. John and Rae are brilliant hosts making us feel welcome and offering tea and coffee on arrival. The rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was outstanding and set the... More

Having read so many good reviews written about this B&B, we booked to stay for four nights and did not regret it - the only slight disadvantage was not being able to pay with a credit or debit card. Thanks to the warm welcome and wonderful hospitality of the owners, John and Rae, we felt as though we were staying... More

Spent two nights at the lovely Cottesmore B&B while touring the sights of the area. The location is excellent, walking distance to the shops and restaurants in town and the famous Bushmills distillery. Everything else is a short drive away. Rae is a wonderful host, making us feel at home right away. The rooms are well designed, tastefully decorated, and... More
