5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

Lovely, comfortable, spacious room, just like a home from home. Janice is a very friendly and helpful hostess. She even did us an early breakfast as we had to go for the ferry.

Great location for trips out into the countryside and handy for good restaurants in town. What's not to like? We will definitely stay again next time we're in Northern Ireland.

This was my wife and I's first stay in Portrush town, boy did we hit gold. I agree fully with all the positive reviews. The staff were all friendly, informative and went out of their way to be helpful. Cleanliness and decor were first class. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, the breakfast sumptuous. and there were morning papers available to read while seated round a blazing fire...heaven. Even though it's in a central location, it was blissfully quiet at night and all amenities were only a short walk away. We're already planning our next visit later in the year.

Room Tip: First stay here... Room was excellent.

This was such a great place to stay in Portrush. We stayed in the offseason, so I'm not sure how it is in the summer, but it was perfect for a fall/off season stay. There is a grocers, bank, post office, shops, cafe, butchers and off license all very close by. It's also very close to the beach. There is a parking lot available, but also a lot of on street parking. Portrush is a really great location to use as a basecamp as it is a very short distance to Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, Carrick-a-Rede and Dunluce Castle.

There were 5 of us staying together, so we were in an apartment attached to the main B&B. It is a great sized apartment, the perfect size for our group. It had a nice kitchen, a really great living room, laundry facilities and even a little yard. It has 1 full bath and 1 half bath, so showers need to be planned. The only problems were minor, the wifi was not great and even though it had been advertised as accepting American Express for payment, it did not.

I would definitely recommend a stay here. It's great if you're looking to have more of an apartment to stay in and save a little money by making your own meals and staying in at nights.

So this was me and my dads seconds year staying at Antrim house and we yet again were amazed by the brilliant service given by Janice and her amazing staff. We did have a bigger room this year although if u read my shout out to Janice review we didn't have a double bed each but we still had an amazing time and this annual trip will carry on until well we will cross that bridge when we come to it!!;)

The hostess here was lovely and helpful. The B&B is large for the town, and very helpfully has its own parking lot. The town is wonderfully situated, close to Giant's Causeway and the Rope Bridge. Plus it has a beautiful seaside setting. Breakfast was good. Rooms were comfortable.

Room Tip: Beware that there is no elevator. Second floor is an easier walk than the third!

I found Antrim house to be fairly priced compared to other hotels in the area which cost twice as much but give you much less. Our room was very large and over looked the sea and although it is centered in the middle of Portrush I didn't find noise pollution a problem. It is handy and accessible to the rest of portush as well as a small parking lot which many other accommodations fail to provide, The bedroom was clean, comfy and surprisingly modern, especially the bathroom, as the actual building has a olden Victorian feeling to it. The breakfast was ok, it lacked a bit in quality but wasn't too bad. One suggestion I would have is to give guests a little menu to choose what they want e.g. bacon, pancake, egg, if you don't ask you don't get.Over all the experience was a good one and in price comparison to hotels, you get your moneys worth. ( some advice, if you want a quick bite, avoid Bentlys, when you get frozen fish in a place beside the sea that isn't great, even wacky workshop in the arcade does better cafe food.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the sea, adds to the experience.

We had a good night sleep in the antrim house, beautiful Rooms, nice staf, and a great breakfast.
The antrim house is situated in the centre of Portrush, with a view on the Sea.
Portrush has some good restaurants, we eat very good fish in Jackman and Pye.
