Brilliant b & b. Brilliant hosts. Luxurious room exquisitely decorated and exceptionally clean. Excellent en-suite. Most beautiful Irish breakfast - especially the crispy potato bread. Barbara and Bill go above and beyond the call of duty eg: dropped us down to the wedding venue and picked us up again at midnight!!! Highly recommend. Great fun.

Returning yet again to the Retreat as promised two years ago the quality of service together with sumptuous accommodation comforts truly just do not come any better. Five star luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms, amazing relaxing beds in such beautiful tranquil surrounding unspoilt countryside. Despite a new supplier of locally sourced fresh eggs, the breakfast remains a welcome treat worthy of... More

From the outset we knew we had chosen well. A genuine friendly welcome and shown to our room which was beyond our expectations. Light and airy, comfortable, scrupulously clean and quality touches such as bathrobes, nibbles and choices of tea and coffee. Bill and Barbara are great hosts, likeable and funny. They will go out of their way to make... More

This is the best place you will stay! People are fun, funny, kind, entertaining, helpful! The place is snug, quiet, homey. We stayed here for 2 nights in September and would love to return to Ireland just to go to The Retreat Greabbey! Many thanks to Barb and Bill for a great start to our vacation!

Stayed here while working away. The bedroom was absolutely gorgeous and the hospitality was second to none. Fantastic breakfast in the morning. Really felt like an escape from the world especially after a long day of work.

We had a warm welcome, a very nice room and nice bathroom. Including tea and sweets. Very good breakfast. Bill and Barbara had given us good information for visiting Belfast. Thanks. We will come back. Gerda and Alex (on their motorbike) from Belgium

Bill and Barbara made us feel so welcome and at home during our recent two night stay. The interior design, fixtures and fittings were all brand new and all the rooms were very clean. Breakfasts were fresh, filling and delicious and really set us up for the day and the double bed was extremely comfortable. This was our first holiday... More

We have just returned home after a superb 2 night stay at 'The Retreat'. This has to be the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Spotlessly clean, great breakfast, extremely comfortable and two superb hosts, Bill and Barbara who could not have been more attentive. We were made to feel most welcome from the minute we arrived. Although some... More

Ideally located within easy access to the Ards peninsular is the aptly named 'Retreat'. Our second visit within 2 months to this wonderful bed and breakfast. The home is spotless and we had a spacious bedroom with a large en-suite. A great nights sleep in tranquil surroundings. It was lovely to have the thoughtful touches of flowers and chocolates in...
