Loved our stay, made to feel really welcome. Very clean, comfortable, great location for all we needed. Heather and her husband do a great job of looking after all your needs. Breakfast was awesome. Definitely staying again.

The Keep Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay for anyone coming to visit Northern Ireland for the first time like we did. Quick connection to any direction. Only 15 minute from Belfast city center, i.e. to Titanic Museum, Ikea, Decathlon, and W5 (children high tech science center). Driving from The Keep to the Giant Causeway was an extraordinary experience... More

Hi Luis,Kate & the kids It was a total pleasure to have you and your family stay with us. We are so glad you choose to extend your stay as we knew it would be the best thing for you rather than having to pack and unpack and change the children's surroundings when they had just got used to here....

Very friendly owners with plenty of advice about the area. Lovely spacious bedroom with four beds which was perfect for us - I don't think I could find any other b & b that offered four beds in the one room. A great idea of having a fridge in the bedroom and beds were comfy. The Ulster fry in the... More
