“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Stayed here for one night during our holiday in Ireland. This is luxury accommodation at a reasonable price, terrific rooms, breakfast and views. Olive and John were really helpful and informative about local restaurants and attractions.

Absolutely lovely place! Great view, wonderful location, friendly hosts ! 

We were offered a pot of nice hot tea and home made cakes when we arrived. It was a nice gesture.

We were given a small(ish) but comfortable room….except for the bathroom. This was winter and the bathroom had no heating. It was freezing and the floor was very cold. On warmer days, this would not be a problem. I hope the rest of the bathrooms in the house don’t have this issue.

The electric shower was a bit tricky. It could have been better. Again wouldn’t have been an issue on warmer days. I can only assume this problem was specific to our room and not the entire house. The room we stayed in had a small shower cubicle. If you are over taller/bigger than average people, I think it might be a problem.

Despite that our stay was comfortable. The hosts were kind and helpful, breakfast was just fabulous and the view from the main living room was breathtaking. Ideal place to stay if visiting the Glens, Rathlin Island and may be even the causeway. You can reach all the important sightseeing places in about 30 mins.
 
Would definitely go back again. Just lovely!

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us even if the weather was not pleasant for this time of the year. Snow and freezing temperatures make it difficult to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Antrim Coast & Glens.

I am sorry to hear that you found the bathroom cold and lacking in heat. A switch was located on the wall in the bedroom to activate the heater in the bathroom. Pity you did not report the difficulty with the heating during your stay as we are always here to make our guests feel at home and be as comfortable as possible.

We do look forward to accommodating you in the near future.

Olive and John certainly know how to make one feel welcome! Everything was perfect, beautiful rooms, bathrooms, grounds and breakfast. Olive gave us ride to the local pub and then came to pick us and deliver us "home". I wish we could have had more than one night at this wonderful B&B.

Everything was perfect. A warm welcome with tea and homemade scones. A very quiet place ideally located to discover the Antrim glens. Breathtaking views through large windows. A clean, comfortable, spacious and cosy double room. A lovely typical Irish breakfast. Very helpful hosts.

My niece and I recently stayed at this amazing place. Outside, spectacular views of water, fields, and mountains, brought inside by large windows so you can sit by the fire, enjoy tea or coffee on arrival with home baking, and get this, even get a ride into the village for dinner AND A RIDE HOME!

Olive and John do not miss a trick from the details around the room down to the chocolate on the pillows and lovely towels to the steam shower and glorious oversize tub. Breakfast was lovely and would reccommend this space to anyone spending time in Ireland. Wish we could have stayed longer!

All the best to Olive and John. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: ours had a bathroom outside the room. Don't let that turn you away. It was spectacular and large...

Olive, you were just so sweet to us! We had such a great time with you, and how sweet of you to take us to the great restaurant! We just had a great visit there, and it made our stay in your area one of our favorites of Ireland! Thanks for being so hospitable to my mom and I! Love it!

To begin with, Olive and James were angels in our distress. Having booked a week at a B&B 3.3 miles away in Glenariff we arrived there to find they didn't want our custom. At the last minute Cullentra agreed to take us as they had capacity and what a good thing they did. From the moment we arrived, rather frazzled at the reception in Glenariff, they were charm personified. Tea and cakes were provided, as they were throughout the holiday. The rooms (we used two) were spotless and comfortable and the views over the glen and out to sea (Ailsa Craig off the Scottish coast visible if it wasn't raining) were superb. The breakfasts were more than adequate with fruit juice, choice of cereal and then cooked breakfast from boiled eggs to full Irish (which does not include baked beans). As a centre for the Antrim Glens it could not be better sited, and Bushmills, the Giants Causeway, Ballycastle and Rathlin Island are conveniently close. Even trips to Belfast and Londonderry are well within one day's outing. Cushendall has a few restaurants for evening meals. Our thanks to the Macauleys for a very enjoyable stay, and to Brandy for keeping us entertained.
