My family and I stayed in An Caislean when we were visiting the Antrim Coast. It was absolutely perfect. First of all, the BnB is located perfectly between the beach/marina area and the town centre. In it's location, it is also just a quick walk from the door to the corner where the bus leaves for major cities in NI... More

My review is a tad different to the others. Let me say that there was nothing inherently wrong with it. The owner was friendly and helpful. However, the room was very small - which I suspect is why I'm giving it an average rating, given what I paid. However it was quite comfortable and clean.

Many thanks you for review. Just to advise that online bookings can tend to be more expensive than email/telephone bookings - and prices are also a little higher when demand is high, such as public holidays (applicable on this occasion). More

We stayed her in May/June when we were in Ireland visiting family, our room was lovely and clean, the service provided by the owners was first class, parking was also provided and the breakfasts were great too. We will definitely be returning to the An Caislean when we stay in Ballycastle again!

It was a sheer joy to stay here in May (located on the street leaving the coast to the town). The house is a beautiful period building that has been renovated to excellent standard. It is impeccably clean and the beds are super comfy with beautiful cotton linen. The host Berkeley was just great and there to offer any advice... More

Myself and my friend stayed in a beautiful room here last August at the start of our holiday around the Causeway coastline. I had read some lovely reviews online already, and shared those thoughts on meeting the hosts. I felt at home the minute I walked in the door. We were given a choice of two rooms, and opted for...

We had booked a stay in the hostel for 7 nights, when we had arrived the heating had a wee bloop so they upgraded our room straight away to the B&B! Claire and Berkeley were very welcoming and helpful throughout the entirety of the stay. The kitchen, living room and bedroom were very well kept, warm and clean. The place... More

As a recent graduate doing a road trip around RoI and Northern Ireland, I found myself looking for cheap B&Bs with parking and breakfast included. An Caislean went above and beyond. The owner was incredibly friendly and offered great advice when I asked where I could visit for food/tourist attractions etc. The room was perfect. A comfy bed, a TV,... More

As part of our road trip around Ireland, we booked in to this no frills B&B on Coast of Northern Ireland. We arrived quite tired at about 7pm, having spent much of the day cruising around the north coast. The welcome/service was better than I could have expected. Berkeley helped us with our luggage up to our room, and allowed... More
