We have just returned from a break in Northern Ireland and can't say enough about the hospitality of John and Rae. Nothing was too much for them. We arrived there tired but straight away we were offered tea and coffee. Our bedroom was lovely and clean and although our room didnt have an en-suite we had a large bathroom to... More

This was one of our most pleasant experiences of our trip. We loved the wonderful hospitality and friendly smiles. Directions we're very helpful as well as all the pamphlets and little secrets about the local attractions in the area like the bushmills distillery, giants causeway, and the rope bridge. Breakfast was lovely and delicious. We felt really welcomed and at... More

It is very good. And I mean very good. reviews over B&B tend to be always terrible or exccelent. And yes this B&B is maybe excellent, but you pay also a nice amount. The breakfast was also very good. A good rest, quiet. It is a good walk to town.

Rae and John's beautiful B&B was a highlight of Ireland's Northern Coast. The sitting room, breakfast room and our bedroom were elegant yet cozy. Our room had a crisp fluffy comforter, firm mattress, bath essentials and a wonderful shower. Breakfast was enormous with a varied continental breakfast bar where we could help ourselves while waiting for our full Irish Breakfast.... More

Lovely couple, very helpful. Room was clean and nice but small. Breakfast was good with plenty of fresh fruit and a good fry up. Got a lift into town as it's a few minutes walk away (we'd walked 20 miles that day already!) Went for dinner at the Bushmills Inn which was great.

I first saw Cottesmore on Google earth. It looked 'right'. I rang and spoke to Rachael (Rae) Neill, she sounded 'right'. When we eventually got to stay with Rae & John, BOY was it right! The welcome, the place, the food, the position, ALL outstanding. I would go so far as to say they reach boutique standards. What a super-perfect... More

Can definitely recommend visiting this part of the world and see the giant's causeway, the causeway coast itself and the various attractions and generally the natural beauty of the area. My wife and I stayed at Cottesmore B&B just for one night in November 2013 over a weekend visiting Northern Ireland. Very welcoming hosts, really comfortable rooms, great breakfast the... More

Cottesmore B&B is great. Rae and John are extremely nice for anything. Hospitality, suggestions for trips in the area, restaurants in Bushmill village and so on. Highly recommended. Francesco Zago, Milan, Italy

Lovely hosts and super room. We were able to walk just down the road into town and ate at the Bushmill's Inn that they recommended. Although we did not tour Bushmills Distillery it is just a short walk away and looked like a good option. There is a lot to see in this area and Cottesmere is a great spot... More

We had an amazing stay at Cottesmore B&B. Rae and her husband were super nice and very helpful. We actually got to go visit and see the dark hedges trees which they had recommended to us. We would have never known about them otherwise. One of our favorite parts of our entire trip to Ireland was Rae's amazing tea and... More
