Best i have ever visited, just couldn,t do enough for us. We stayed for 4 nights and also stayed last year. Definetaly stay again next year. The rooms are very tidy and cleaned every day, Jennifer did all our ironing for us. When we went out on return Joe or Jenny would make us a brew and bring cakes in.

We spent 2 nights with Jen and Joe at their lovely home in Ballycastle. It is located well for exploring the Antrim Coast. It is also just a 10 minute walk into town for dining and such. The White room was spacious and comfy with a small sofa and vanity. The shower pressure was good. Breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious. But it was Jen and Joe who made this a special place. They were friendly and helpful. Joe never let us leave for the day without a piece of fruit for a snack. I would definitely return and recommend it to friends

Stayed with Jennifer for two nights, a Friday and Sunday as we were visiting Rathlin Island in between. The Blue twin room is very well decorated and the fact that the bathroom is along the corridor is no problem, especially with the wonderfully soft dressing gowns provided. The red double room has the fluffiest duvet. Both bathrooms have power showers which were wonderful. Good breakfast too.
And Jennifer went out of her way to look after us by driving us down to the ferry.
There's a nice walk across a field and along the cliffs, just across the road (picture attached)
Definitely recommend

Arrived as planned despite very bad snow and fog in March. Power cut in Ballycastle so unsure whether we'd be able to stay but all turned out well. Jennifer made us very welcome with tea and Kit Kats and kindly offered to drive us to restaurant but we managed on our own. Comfortable room, lovely breakfast. Convenient for Giant's Causeway and Rope Bridge, although this was shut when we stayed due to bad weather. Hope to visit again.
