We stayed here after a motorcycle tour of Northern Ireland. Situated only 5 mins drive from Belfast Port. It makes an ideal base for touring. In the middle of a housing estate this is an old Mansion with a LOT of history to it. Step inside and you have returned to the 50's New Orleans, Or Memphis, With a splash... More

I stayed for 5 nights in Lincoln (on the top floor) at the beginning of June, and enjoyed it so much I booked for 3 more nights later the following week and was lucky enough to have Eisenhower, a most fantastic grand room with double aspect views over-looking the sea. Tim could not have been more welcoming and helpful and,... More

It has taken me 54 years to get to NI, and I honestly thought I would never get there. Been supposed to visit three or four times over the years - but something always stopped me! Well - I am so glad I made it this time and so glad my friends suggested the Abbeydene in Newtownabbey to stay at.... More

This is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Beautiful room with everything you could want provided (even toothbrush etc in case you've forgotten). Hospitality table with milk jug, sugar bowl, plate of wrapped chocolate biscuits. Very comfortable bed, great breakfast and lots more.... Fantastic hosts. And the icing on the cake for a solo traveller? No... More

Stayed here on the night before my wedding, Tim and Ethy were very friendly hosts and made me feel very welcome. When the Usher arrived the next morning, he was made welcome as well before we travelled over to the ceremony

Tim and Ethy have created their own, very personal B&B, full of warmth, comfortable accommodation and an excellent breakfast. You are invited to make Abbeydene your home throughout your stay and they mean every word of it. Experience it for yourself and also share your music stories with them. Nothing like it.

My third stay in this fabulous B&B which is always welcoming, warm and cosy after a long day. Comfortable, peaceful accommodation with everything you could possibly want. Great Irish breakfast cooked to order by Tim and wonderful views over Belfast Lough from the breakfast room. Although not in Belfast city it has a bus stop and train station nearby and... More

I would just reiterate all the good things about this wonderful house, and the fantastic welcome and personal service. We only stayed one night but enjoyed our comfortable room, the fabulous furnishings, interesting memorabilia and vintage curios everywhere. Have since recommended this to our friends both in Ireland and also in UK. We will certainly stay here again the next... More
