Margaret and her husband are amazing hosts and I can't thank them enough for their kindness and hospitality on my recent visit. From a welcoming cup of tea, beautiful en suite room and a great gluten free breakfast (especially made for me) nothing is too much bother for them. Stunning place inside and out but it is the hosts who... More

The house is a beautiful family homeplace and very comfortable, the breakfast was GREAT. The Deering's treated my wife and I like family. Ron spent an afternoon showing me his antique tractor collection, and what a collection it is. Very convenient for travel to Belfast. The type B&B that we are always looking for.

Absolutely gorgeous place to stay. Margaret can't do enough to assist you. The grounds and house are superbly clean and comfortable. The ulster breakfast is gorgeous, best ever. It's such a lovely and quiet location.

Hugely warm welcome; comfortable bedroom; huge bathroom; excellent breakfast - what more could you ask for? Used it as a base to visit Mount Stewart House and Gardens, and Ulster Folk Museum, but it is close enough to Belfast to use it as a base for a longer stay.

The rooms were lovingly comfortable and breakfast deliciously filling. But it was the warm hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Deering that is most memorable. The first time we found Ballycastle House in 1993 was serendipitous as we hoped to find the family farm near Carrowdore. Mr. Deering allowed my 10 year old daughter to rise early to feed their new...

I stayed here one night as I was working in the area and I couldn't have picked a lovelier place. Margaret welcomed me with a pot or tea and a muffin (the teapot even had a teacosy on it!). Lovely spacious room and breakfast...well, what can I say? Delicious. Try the homemade bread - it's to die for! Thanks for... More

A very comfortable B&B, hosted by the most wonderful Margaret! You will be made most welcome. The rooms are very comfortable, facilitating a sound night's sleep. Breakfast! What a way to get your day started! Your eggs will sourced that morning from under the hens (and they taste fantastic!) If I'm in Ards again - I'm beating a path to... More

We stayed here for two nights last week as we were on holiday visiting family and friends. Margaret and Ronnie were the friendliest hosts you could possibly encounter. The room was very spacious and comfortable the whole house was full of interesting antiques and artifacts. The breakfast was superb and the award that Margaret won is fully deserved. We had... More
