This was our first B&B on our Antrim walk. We had an amazing time in Ballycastle, and Mark and Elizabeth are perfect hosts. They were very helpful, even fixed my seized hiking pole for me. The B&B is conveniently located so that dinner restaurants are only 5 minute walk away. Our room was very comfortable, and the breakfasts were amazing.

The Old Manse oozes traditional character and charm. Our room at the top was beautifully decorated and really comfy. We had family in the larger room with the balcony which was great for getting together for a chat. Breakfast superb. Didn't need anything else to eat all day. Wonderful friendly host too. Well done!

Hi Natalie, sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your trip advisor feedback. Helping you get a new tablet was the least I could do to help - couldn't leave you unable to communicate or take pictures of your trip. By the way the photos you sent of the North Coast were amazing. When it stops raining... More

We stayed for one night; Mark and Liz were charming and very helpful. The suite with balcony and access to the garden was immaculately presented and very comfortable. Their recommendation for a meal at the Central Hotel was spot on. Liz's breakfast was delicious and carefully prepared. Happy memories and unhesitating recommendation.

We stayed for three nights. The room was great with a balcony that had views across the sea. Mark and Liz were great hosts and the full Irish breakfasts set you up for the day. Hopefully the sun will shine the next time we stay.

Lovely 2 night stay! The owners could not have been more welcoming, really nice people and very helpful with local recommendations. My 4 year old even commented that he was sad when we were moving on because they were 'so kind and friendly'. Breakfast was delicious and the room was great-we had the family room which was light, spacious and... More

My wife and I stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Ballycastle. We found the room clean and well decorated. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was great. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here to anyone.
