Maybe the best bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. Ballintoy is only known among tourists for the Carrick-a-rede-robe-bridge, but this bed and breakfast and its owner, lovely Rita, should definitely be listed among the main attractions! ( Be sure to visit Ballintoy harbor too, a lot of Game of Thrones is shot there! ). Cozy, confortable, and incredibly cheap!... More

We stayed 1 night (2 adults, 3 children) in this beautiful b&b. Very nice owner, great with kids and welcomy. Very nice room with comfortable beds. And perfect breakfast. A great place not expensive for a family.

We drove from Dublin airport straight to Northern Ireland to see Giant's Causeway and the rope bridge. We needed somewhere to stay, as it was after 10pm and we had no reservations. I was hesitant to knock on someone's door so late, but Rita opened the door and had a room for us. Rita was such a sweet lady, and... More

We had booked three rooms at Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy, however upon arrival they had doublebooked so two of us couldn't stay at the same place as the others, which was disappointing! As it turned out we were the lucky ones as we were sent across the road to this beautiful B&B, that luckily for us had a room for... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night while hiking along the coast. Ballintoy is a tiny little town with few options for places to stay, and we were quite happy we ended up in this spot. Rita, the owner, is an incredibly sweet woman, full of energy! She definitely made the place lively, and we really liked her... More

We had a very pleasant night at this unique B&B, unique in that you'll be hard pressed to find another former police station, dating from 1731, now transformed to a cosy and comfortable B&B. Of course now nothing reminds you of the premisses' former role, on the contrary, the reception was very friendly and warm. Our host was most helpful... More

After phoning Ballintoy House and booking a room for several weeks ahead, I could not believe it when we arrived, the landlady opened the door to us and, after introducing ourselves to her, told us that our room had just been re-let as we had arrived too late (8.30pm). I had already explained when I phoned to make the booking... More

Very nice lady (owner?) who made our stay unforgettable. They have 6 cats there, and I am a cat person so I loved it. Spacious and warm room, fantastic breakfast, but most of all - amazing people who run the place.

Stayed here for one night-no problems. Room was ok to good, with toilet, washbasin, shower and small tv. I enjoyed the cooked breakfast. Owner and family very friendly, Cost £30 inc breakfast which is good value. Situated on main street in Ballintoy which is half a mile inland from coast between Giants Causeway and Carrick a Rede rope bridge. Ballintoy... More
