We often call into The Halfway House when touring the Glens of Antrim. It serves up wholesome food from quite an extensive menu at a very reasonable price.The staff are so friendly and the atmosphere delightful. Oh! and the chips are great.

Sunday lunch with the family staff are welcoming and attentive nothing is to much trouble. Surroundings a little dated but comfortable. The food is good but not great you couldn't say it was bad but lacks that certain edge that you would be in a rush back. I honestly don't want to put any one off eating at the halfway... More

Breakfast was very nice but 9am is... More

Our Bluegrass music group was playing at a Saturday evening concert in the Halfway House - a superb evening in the ideal venue. After the sound-check in the large function room, we had a "Halfway Burger and fries" from the extensive menu - an excellent "home-made from real steak" burger - in the busy,cosy, relaxed restaurant/bar. Polite friendly, efficient service.... More

We stayed for 4 nights and found the staff some of the friendliest that we have encountered in our travels. The evening meals were a lot more varied than the usual 'pub grub' and we found no problem in finding something eatable on it. The breakfasts were good as they were of a buffet style, so you could help yourself... More

A favourite meal location,with great tasting food, excellent value and extremely attentive staff. We love wee Philip and miss Sean. Having seen some other reviews about decor all we can say is thank goodness this beautiful hotel is not copying all the generically bland and uninteresting hotels we have visited were the customer is just a customer not a friend....

I overnighted at the Halfway House Hotel recently. This hotel is located in a tranquil spot on the shores of the Sea of Moyle and very well located for visits to the Glens of Antrim. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Good food is available both as bar food and in the restaurant at a reasonable price as is also the... More

Popped in to the Halfway House yesterday (Sun) afternoon for coffee and a snack with my partner. It was well after the busy lunch time period and we asked for a round of sandwiches and a portion of chips to share and 2 coffees. It seemed to be a big deal to do a sandwich, as "they aren't on on... More
