We are just back from a two night stay at Teach an Cheoil B&B and have had a wonderful stay. Traveling with a toddler isn't aways easy, especially if you are going to someone else's home, but Michael made us feel so very welcome and really engaged with our wee boy throughout the stay. The room was comfortable and warm,... More

I stayed here 4 nights exploring the north coast, the Antrim Coast Road and Derry city - the latter being about 1hr 20 mins away by car. Teach an Cheoil is located on a minor road to the east of Ballyvoy, which itself is east of Ballycastle. The location is in one of the lesser known Glens of this part... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful night at Teach an Cheoil with Michael and Catherine and their lovely family. Their hospitality, friendship and craic are second to none. We were fortunate enough to enjoy some music at a local hotel with them and repaired back to the house for more stories, poetry and music with our hosts. If you're... More

Teach an Cheoil B&B is the perfect spot. You can take the scenic route to the Causeway or the back route (avoiding all the tour bus traffic!) to the Causeway, Bushmills, Dunluce castle, etc. And... you can visit the picturesque but horribly touristy and expensive Portrush and Portstewart and then enjoy the quiet, local atmosphere of Ballycastle at night. As... More

For two lovely days and nights this month, we stayed at the home of Michael Sands and his musical family. There are plenty of regular reasons that this is special - the good food, the comfy beds, the casual atmosphere - but there are more compelling reasons that make this a very special place. A step onto the front porch... More

We had a wonderful visit. The home is very warm and welcoming and hearing a music session was an unexpected treat. Michael is extremely knowledgeable about the area and its magical places, and even took us out to see The Dark Hedges. Teach an Cheoil is a treasure!
