Very clean but hot water failed - more apologies than you could shake a stick at but no reduction offered & then charged £2.00 to use credit card! A 1 night stay in a v small double that will remain as 1. Short sighted attitute as we were looking at coming back regularly. Poor customer care means it won't be... More

This is the third time we have stayed at the Homestead and it has become a part of our ritual when we are on a pilgrimage to Northern Ireland. You couldn't come across a more friendly and helpful couple that Margaret and Peter the owners. We have enjoyed having a chat with them each time we arrive and their breakfast... More

This is one of the loveliest guest houses we have been in. We are touring the UK for 3 months and would recommend the Homestead Guest House to anyone. Friendly, clean, comfortable and affordable. I sincerely wish we had had longer. Lovely place.

We came in from Belfast (via Stena Line). We stayed at the Homestead Guest House, I felt a little Leary after a bad experience at a B&B in Dublin. There are not many choices in the area. When we arrived we were greeted at the Taxi by the cat! Margaret the owner of the B&B was right behind the cat;... More

My wife and I had booked a day trip to Ireland with Stena Line and I was looking for somewhere to stay near the terminal. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor I decided on Homestead Guest House. There was only a twin room (with ensuite) available so I booked that for two nights. The twin room was quite small, it... More

You are assured of a warm welcome from Margaret at this spotlessly clean guest house. Our room was well equipped and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! It is a convenient place to stay if you intend using the ferry service to Northern Ireland or exploring the region.

Would we recommend this B&B? - Absolutely. Margaret is friendly and helpful. This place is absolutely spotless, beds are comfortable, linens are very nice and the breakfast is delicious. Yes, the rooms are small, but as we were there just for the night until we caught the mid morning ferry, we only took in an overnight bag and there was... More

This is my 3rd time here, and as always is excellent, though the carpark park is small probably just enough space for all the rooms cars. Always a warm and welcoming greeting from Margaret and hubby. The room itself is spacious and clean as is the shower room. Excellent wifi. As I leave for the ferry they'll do me a... More

When we arrived we were greeted my Margaret, who made us very welcome. We were given the choice of two rooms, both were very nice, but we chose the one with the walkin shower. The room was very cosy on the cold night we arrived. The bed was so comfortable so we both slept well. The bedding and towels were... More
