This was a good place to stay after a long drive from Dublin, by way of Belfast where we had a quick drive-thru tour. The inn is pet friendly. Our ground floor room was very quiet. Breakfast was good with made to order entrees. We walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner.

My wife and I stayed here during the off season, so there were plenty of rooms to choose from, which is good because our first room had terrible wi-fi reception. Front desk staff were quick in helping us resolve the issue. The rooms are pretty standard in their furnishings, but the bed was uber comfortable. Slept great. Morning Irish breakfast... More

We have been meaning to visit the Inn on The Coast for ages after seeing all the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. So on a last minute whim bags were thrown in the car and a call was made on the drive up. Luckily there was one room left! We were not disappointed. We were greeted by friendly and smiling receptionists... More

Recently stayed here with my partner and was expecting a great experience but left rather disappointed. Our room was very basic, old fashioned and bland. Although the room & bathroom were spotlessly clean, the wear and tear of furnishings and carpets were very visible. After leaving our luggage in our room (no lift by the way) we made our way...

Our second time in this hotel within two years - with our Lhasa Apso dog, Max. Dogs are even more welcome, now - as dining, with a dog, is now possible at their "back" restaurant. Hospitality and food is excellent and the service is very efficient; a "fuss" of Max was made in the dining room and by our waitress... More

We have stayed many times with our Jack Russell dog and as usual we had a wonderful stay. The Hotel has now extended its service so that your pets can now stay in a particular area in the back bar if you are eating. The staff really go out of their way to help you. The rooms are spotless and... More

We have stayed in this hotel several times and are never disappointed. Staff are so warm and friendly, hotel is very clean, breakfast is top notch and the bar is second to none. We have recommended and got vouchers for this hotel for many family and friends and everyone of the them have loved it.

I stayed at the hotel with some friends and our dogs. The staff on entering the hotel were extremely welcoming and we felt at home instantly. The rooms were spacious, there were three adults sharing one room which never felt crowded, the shower was powerful nice treat. A lovely relaxing time had by all. Some minor complaints - The hotel...

Staff very friendly. Good bar and restaurant. Rooms spacious. This is my second time staying here and my only critisism is the bedrooms and bathrooms could be cleaner or do with an update. They were a little shabbier than last time I was here. The other public areas are well kept. Would go back

This is a little gem, that allows dogs. The hotel is a 3 star, but you get large clean rooms. Also the breakfast is great and is included in your price. Dogs are allowed in your rooms, back bar and foyer. Doggie treats are available. Great to get away with your dog.
