This was an phenomenal find. I did some research before heading here with my mother and grandmother, and I booked a room with two double beds. When we arrived, the hosts brought in a third bed so we would each have our own, at no extra charge. That was unexpected and so nice. One of the hosts noticed that my grandmother and I were perusing through the books on the book shelf in the hallway and she told us to take some home if we wanted. I chose a book of photos of Ireland's unmatched countryside. Late that night, my mother hurt her knee, and we phoned downstairs and they immediately brought up a bucket of ice and some plastic bags for her to ice her knee. The next morning, they told us of 3 must-see locations on the Antrim coast for us to see that we wouldn't have known about otherwise (complete with detailed directions). They were the nicest hosts we could possibly ask for.
Aside from their great friendliness, the room was gorgeous--the view was outstanding and we watched the sunset over the Irish Sea from our balcony. Everything was extremely clean and in great working order, plus the detail in the decor was adorable. Breakfast was DELICIOUS. I got the peanut butter-banana french toast and I've tried to make it myself since then, and it's just unparalleled. Great breakfast. We ate as we looked out to a peaceful and sunny morning through the huge picture window. I've been meaning to write a review ever since this trip because this place is a rare gem.
If staying in Northern Ireland--the Rayanne House is definitely the place to stay!
