5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2015

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

Picked this location on the Antrim coast because An Caislean was the only property that I could find with accommodations for my young family of 5 (2 adults, 3 young children). It ended up being a terrific choice. Berkeley, the owner, was helpful with suggestions on places to go eat and excursions, and he and the staff were especially helpful... More

We stayed in this b&b one night. The room was lovely and clean, the breakfast lovely also. The owner did seem very busy though, and as he appeared to be the only one helping out in the b&b we missed out a bit on the more personal service. A nice stay overall though.

We stayed here last night, I didn't know what to expect really, as I always book a hotel rather than a b&b, but the marine hotel didn't have any rooms. Our room was very clean, with ensuite, the bed was very comfortable, with good quality cotton bedlinen, comfortable pillows and nice fluffy towels. We were told that a lot of... More

Very friendly people, spacious and pretty room, central location, great breakfast. We came by bike and in addition to the safe storage space, were provided with a space to dry our wet clothes. Much enjoyed our stay and would warmly recommend.

Stayed here for a night with my family, was our first time in a B&B but I loved it. Barclay is the owner, and he is really helpful in directing you where to go to see the nearby sights. Good breaky the next day too. Didn't like the bed though, was a spring mattress that sunk in the middle, meaning... More

Very warm welcome from the host Berkeley who provided good advice on places to eat in the town. Spotlessly clean and well fitted quiet rooms complemented by a hearty breakfast in the morning - overall great value for money. This is an excellent B&B and as it is just around the corner from the Ballycastle pier it was a very... More

An Caislan was the perfect stay in senter of Ballycastle. A short distance from the main town and to the harbor with the nice beach. Very nice rooms. Super hosts and food. Well taken care of. Everybody should go there!
