“one night stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Kenny and Mary are the perfect hosts for a B and B. We found this place online for a one night stay to be near our visit to the Giant's Causeway.....about 10 miles away. The bedroom was spotlessly clean, really excellent.....with everything you need....an extremely comfy bed, super hospitality tray (with fresh milk!) heating on too, and super sized tv on the wall. The ensuite shower room had everything you need, bigger sized towels, toiletries, tissues etc and was spotless. The breakfast was 100% perfect...Good choice of cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurts plus a superb Ulster fry and fabulous local made bread. We were planning a one night stay but have already decided to return for more nights next year to check out the beautiful local coastline and to stay in one of the best B and B's we have ever stayed in.....and we have stayed in many in Northern and Southern Ireland.

Room Tip: Family room was spacious

A very pleasant stay, with a great location, I stayed in a very comfortable self-contained flat just off the main house and it was like home from home. Ken and Mary made my stay very enjoyable and were extremely helpful & gracious hosts. The breakfast was to die for and a great choice available, I would recommend the poached eggs on toast which were made to perfection!!!! The overall atmosphere was very homely and welcoming..........and I loved the little touches like the homemade cakes left every night to have with a cup of tea!!!! Thank you both xx Leonora Bann

Room Tip: Ask for the self-contained flat if you want a little more privacy.

Ken and Mary were wonderfully gracious hosts. The room was neat, the bathroom sparkling, and the beds comfortable. The overall atmosphere was cozy and welcoming, and the Ulster Fry was delicious! I would recommend Ken-Mar house to anyone visiting the Antrim coast, and hope to stay there on my next trip to Ballymoney.

Very comfortable accommodation with off street parking and within easy access to all the tourist attractions along the coast such as Portstewart Strand, Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge and Glenariff Forest Park which was covered in snow when we visited this Easter. The hosts are very attentive, and I like the fact we were given a choice as to what to eat for the next breakfast and there is a good selection of fruits on offer. Free Wi-Fi is available too.

A very pleasant stay, with a good location, comfortable room, helpful friendly hosts. Ken and Mary make staying here very enjoyable. Not lacking in any area so I would stay there again any time. I recommend this B&B.

One of the most comfortable B&B's I've had the pleasure of staying. Was working locally and the facilities made it very easy to get on with the job. Would also be ideal for anyone touring the area, with the lovely north coast only about 10 miles away. Kenny and Mary are perfect hosts, and the selection at breakfast was superb. Highly recommended, and I look forward to returning!
